Eddie Van Halen Says He And David Lee Roth Didn't Hate Each Other

(Gibson) Eddie Van Halen has given a rare, open interview about his life to Esquire magazine. The band Van Halen, now reunited with original vocalist David Lee Roth, recently released A Different Kind of Truth, which hit #2 on the Billboard charts.

On Roth, Eddie tells Esquire: "We never really hated each other. I think the press blew that out of proportion. He did kind of blindside us by leaving we certainly weren't ready for that. But we always, if we argued you know, now it's always about, about the structure of a song. It's never personal. We've never on a personal level not gotten along."

On recording A Different Kind of Truth, EVH says: "Before we decided to actually make a full record, we said, 'Hey, let's do some old demos.' And we actually recorded three of them already. And I engineered 'She's the Woman,' 'Out of Space' and 'Bullethead,' and it ended up turning into a whole record. But we figured: Why not give fans the era that they liked, you know?" more on this story
