and Wolfgang. In the interview the guys talk about their relationship as
father and son and as musicians. Excerpts from the interview are below: Eddie Van Halen
on the band’s A Different Kind of Truth tour being
cut short: "This record took a lot out of us. And we went on tour
earlier than we wanted to so we could play Madison Square Garden (in
March, before a renovation), and that threw the schedule out of whack."Eddie Van Halen
on the end of the tour and upcoming plans: "So in
November we'll hit Japan, and in the New Year we'll possibly do
something special, but I can't talk about it."Van Halen Wolfgang
on rumours he plays to a pre-recorded tape: “If
some people think that what I'm playing and what I'm singing is so good
that it can't possibly be me doing it, then thank you."
Wolfgang Van Halen on people comparing him to his father: “People
won't let you be who you are without comparing you to someone else."
