Van Halen: "Song To Soul"; Japanese TV Special Posted Online

A one-hour Japanese TV special on Van Halen, which was broadcast on Tuesday (August 7), can now be seen in four parts below.

BS-TBS's "Song To Soul" is a series of unique music documentary programs dedicated to songs and the artists who perform them. In each episode, the producers look at an iconic track from the past through the retrospective view of the composers, artists and performers.

The Van Halen "Song To Soul" special, focusing entirely on the single"Jump" from the band's smash hit album "1984", features brand-new interviews with David Lee Roth and Eddie and Alex Van Halen, filmed just two weeks ago at Dave's house. Also interviewed for the program were Van Halen producer Ted Templeman, Guitar World editor-in-chief Brad Tolinski and Margo Nahas, the creator of the "1984" album cover.

"Jump" introduced Van Halen to the 1980s pop audience and its success helped the band cross over from hard-rock icons to pop-rock superstars.
