Eddie Van Halen and director Michael Ninn co-hosted a party last weekend for the launch of a porn movie called "Sacred Sin", for which Eddie recorded two songs. Dubbed "The Gathering", the private, invitation-only bash took place on Saturday (September 30) at "the 5150 Estate in Los Angeles," which is Van Halen's home. Check out video footage from "The Gathering" at G4's The Feed. More photos from the party can be viewed at this location.
Van Halen previously explained his relationship with Ninn to the adult industry web site AVN.com by saying, "I'm working with a friend — very simple. I like his work. Michael Ninn is like a Spielberg to me: the imagery, the way he makes things look, just... sensual."
The two new songs are "Rise", which Van Halen wrote, and a remix of a track titled "Catherine", which was originally the theme music from Ninn's 2005 movie of the same name. The guitarist said, "If 'Catherine' doesn't move you, you're brain-dead." Van Halen also supplied some of the piano music that's heard throughout "Sacred Sin", acording to Launch Radio Networks.
"Sacred Sin" was released last month. The DVD features Van Halen in music videos for the two full-length songs. Clips of the music and the movie can be found at ninnworx.com/sacredsin, but it is an adult movie, so all the necessary precautions should be taken.
