Van Halen Members Discuss "5150" Album On "In The Studio" (Audio)
Guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen, singer Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony are interviewed on this week's edition of "In The Studio". They can be heard discussing the 25th anniversary of Van Halen's classic "5150" album with professional radio broadcaster and rock musician interviewer Redbeard.
"In The Studio" is a weekly hour-long interview-with-music "rockumentary" which looks at the making of many of the greatest albums recorded in rock and roll history, although sometimes it spotlights the history of rock and roll bands. Redbeard interviews the musicians who created these classic albums.
Named after Eddie Van Halen's home studio, "5150" (which is a California police term for a mentally disturbed person) hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart, surpassing the band's previous album, "1984", which had peaked at No. 2. The LP featured a number of hit singles, including "Why Can't This Be Love?", "Dreams", "Love Walks In", "Best Of Both Worlds" and"Summer Nights".
