The History of Van Halen with Greg Renoff

Season 4 of Making Waves kicks off with the quintessential discussion on the mighty Van Halen with Van Halen Rising Author, Greg Renoff. In this episode, Greg talks with host Tom Prather about Eddie Van Halen and his impact on the world of music and the guitar. The line in the sand is drawn as they discuss the legendary battle of lead singers in Van Halen and did it really led to a change in the band's sound. Also why fans are split on Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth, what really attributed to Michael Anthony's fall from grace in the Van Halen camp, and his experience at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California.

Greg Renoff is a historian and the author of “Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal” and “Ted Templeman: A Platinum Producer's Life in Music,” the authorized autobiography of the Grammy-winning record producer.
