Training. Ich saß immer mit einem Sixpack auf meinem Bett. Mein Bruder ist um 7 losgezogen um auf Partys zugehen und Frauen flach zu legen und wenn er um 3 Uhr morgens zurück kam, saß ich immer noch dort und habe Gitarre gespielt. Das habe ich jahrelang gemacht - und mache es noch heute.
Practice. I used to sit on the edge of my bed with a six-pack of Schlitz Malt talls. My brother would go out at 7pm to party and get laid, and when he'd come back at 3am, I would still be sitting in the same place, playing guitar. I did that for years - I still do that.Eddie Van Halen

There's a plaque on our wall that says we've sold over 65 million albums, and I don't feel I've accomplished anything. I feel like I'm just getting started.Eddie Van Halen

David Lee Roth had the idea that if you covered a successful song, you were half way home. C'mon - Van Halen doing 'Dancing in the Streets'? It was stupid. I started feeling like I would rather bomb playing my own songs than be successful playing someone else's music.Eddie Van Halen
It's always a Catch-22 situation. They hate you if you're the same, and they hate you if you're different.Eddie Van Halen
