Van Halen- II 35th Anniversary-Eddie & Alex Van Halen, Michael Anthony

Share/Bookmark

The quintessential American hard rock band Van Halen‘s  1978 debut probably guaranteed their election to the Rock ‘n’Roll Hall of Fame on the first ballot, quickly becoming a benchmark for every hard rock band ever since. Six years later they even topped that with 1984 , one of the most popular and influential albums ever. Every one of the four Van Halen albums in between,  II , Women and Children First, Fair Warning, and Diver Down would all sell a million-plus and chart Top 6 on Billboard sales. Yet by 1982, Van Halen had become a series of contradictions, and  are equaled only by Pink Floyd as the longest-running soap opera in rock. Original members Eddie and Alex Van Halen and original ( now former) member Michael Anthony dish on the opposing forces inside and outside of the band during those years. –Redbeard
