It's part of our nature. As much as I love (brother and guitarist Eddie), if you put us in a room with no one else for 15 minutes, we'd be at each other's throats.
You come to the planet with nothing and you leave with nothing, so you'd better do some good while you are here.
Some things are impossible.
The Beatles will never get back together and David Lee Roth will never again sing with Van Halen.
Whatever our personal differences are, there are no bigger fans of this band than the people who are in this band.
At our age, you don't want to stop.
It's unfortunate nine years were in between - you can't take that time back; you can't undo it.
Meaning that if you live in the moment, so to speak, we play today, and tonight we're done.
On a personal level, we all get along fine.
There is a volatile mix, and that's because we're all intense. And there's no denying that.
When you leave the planet, you leave music behind.
Yeah, we have our differences, but we put those aside, and now we're making music. It's great.
Nobody sets out to make a bad record.
Everybody has a high point and a lot goes into that: timing, situation, general consciousness.
Music is a dialogue.
Sammy and I got together and it was like we hadn't missed a beat.
There's nothing worse than having everybody thinking alike, talking alike and having the same direction in mind. It gets stale that way.
Van Halen is a work in progress.
We're having a blast. Just four friends getting together.
We're very needy people, you know.
