Eddie Van Halen Picks His All-Time Favorite Guitar Riffs

November 12, 2015

Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen talked about his favourite guitar riffs – including Black Sabbath’s “Into The Void”, Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love”, Deep Purple’s “Burn” and AC/DC’s “Down Payment Blues” in his Billboard cover story. See the clip at Billboard.com.


Van Halen’s final show of their 2015 U.S. tour took place on October 4 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.

It was the band’s first tour since an aborted North American run three years ago in support of its then-new studio album, “A Different Kind Of Truth”.

Eddie has been saying in recent interviews that the band is likely to record a new studio album after completing the trek, but he told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he’s never been one to to just churn out songs. “I’m not like a jingle writer who can just crank out the hits, so to speak,” he said. “I need to sit down and really almost get to a state of mind where things just come. That’s what kinda makes it exciting — it’s like, ‘Wow, I wonder what lurks in the plumbing today?’ [Laughs]”
