Tuesday, February 21, 2012VIDEO: David Lee Roth interviews the Van Halen brothers part 2

Van Halen have kicked off their 2012 tour in support of “A Different Kind Of Truth.”

The band’s North American tour runs through the end of June.

VH have offered up the second in a series of “interviews,” as David Lee Roth sits down with Alex and Eddie to discuss the band’s early years.

(Watch part 1 of the session here.)

The guys discuss the details of their first recording contract – very interesting stuff for musicians to take note of, even if VH experienced these things more than 30 years ago.

“They called it a Motown deal,” explains Eddie, “which was an 11-point deal; a point is 1% – not of a 100%, but 1% of 90%. And the basis for that came from the old days when 78s were delivered; upon delivery, approximately 10% of the product broke. So they paid you on 90% of the delivery. We had an 11 point deal and 3 points went to [producer] Ted [Templeman].”

“Ted still makes more money than I do on those first two records,” adds Roth.

“Oh ya,” says Eddie, “he makes more than all of us.”
Perry's good natured bonhomie & the world’s most charmin smile,knocked fans off their feet. Sportin a black tux,gigs came alive as he swished around the stage thrillin audiences w/ charisma that instantly burnt the oxygen right out of the venue.TR.com

It's the whole Bewitched dilemma: Darren 1 or Darren 2. Both hove their fans.
