(hennemusic) In a new Guitar World interview/cover story, Eddie Van Halen talks about what got the ball rolling on making the new Van Halen album, "A Different Kind Of Truth," the band's first with David Lee Roth in 28 years.

"Wolfgang's enthusiasm," explains Eddie. "He was going, 'Come on, come on!' We went up to 5150 and started jamming. It felt like a comfortable old pair of shoes. Working with Dave again was like we had never left each other. It was that comfortable. We've known each other since high school. When you have old friends, five or six years can go by when you don't see each other, but you just pick up where you left off."

"We started recording at the studio at my house with just Alex, Wolfgang and me," continued the guitar icon. "Basically it's the same way we start any record. We went through our archives of stuff we had already written. Wolfgang picked out a bunch of tunes. 'She's the Woman' was the first one. We started jamming on songs like 'She's the Woman' and 'Bullethead' and reworked them." more on this story
