VAN HALEN: Watch Eddie Work on Song a Decade Before Its Release

Eddie Van Halen was known to hang onto riffs and pieces of music for years, and a newly dug-up video proves just that.

The fan site Van Halen Brazil posted a video of Eddie in his 5150 Studios working on the guitar parts for Van Halen‘s “Amsterdam,” a track that wouldn’t be released until 1995’s Balance.

This session in the video is from 1985 or 1986.
