Guitarist Eddie Van Halen told Launch Radio Networks recently that part of VAN HALEN's appeal has always been the fact that they never tried to be something they weren't: "I don't know if we've risen above anything, but I do know that we have never been one to follow trends. You know, whether it be punk, disco, rap, industrial, whatever terms they have nowadays — we're a rock-and-roll band, and we make music that pleases us. We make music from the heart."
