Personal Quote:

Van Halen can keep providing the rain and I'll keep providing the parade. See more »

Trivia:

He was against having too many synthesizers in the Van Halen sound, especially during the 1984/"Jump" period, which was one of the things that led to his departure because he wanted more of a bluesy sound (according to Dave in his book "Crazy from the Heat"). See more »

Trademark:

Irrepressibly bombastic interview style, where he will use a variety of cultural, literary, and worldly references, in a very stream-of-consciousness manner. See more »
