So Van Halen was my first real band

So Van Halen was my first real band

You had another tour with Sammy in 2004. David Lee and van Halen haven’t been together in so long. I thought it would be cool if they got back together. 

Was Van Halen your first band or did you make music with friends before?

Yes, I did gamble with some friends, but it was just for fun and nothing really serious. So Van Halen was my first real band.

Not bad! So did you give your first concert with Van Halen? Was that right in front of 10, 15,000 fans?

Fortunately not! The first show was smaller because it was one "Friends and family"Show was. But no idea how many people were there. Back then you simply invited friends who also brought friends. The first real concert was in front of 10,000 people. 

How did your classmates react when you suddenly played in this huge band?

If anything, they treated me worse than before. (laughs) I wasn’t one of the cool kids. I missed 11th checkout and when I got back to 12th grade it was more like people mumbling "This is Van Halen’s bass player." You’d think that would be cool, but it wasn’t really … 

Funny. But how did you feel about touring life? Was it a wild rock and roll party as you imagine it or what was it like for you as a teenager?

No, that was pretty quiet. My dad was there, Alex is a father himself and David Lee … well, he’s older too. (laughs) I used to play video games on the tour bus. But I didn’t have any expectations either, I was happy about the time with my family.

When was the first time you realized that your father didn’t have a 9-to-5 job, but was a rock star?

I was little then. My mother took me to his concerts and I was able to stand on the edge of the stage. Once when my dad was playing his solo, I jumped out of my mom’s arms to hug him. I then looked to the left and saw that there were really a lot of people looking at him.

Did music bring you and your father closer together?

We were always close, but then making music together made it even better.

What was the best advice your father gave you?

It was more like a joke, but it was something his father already told him: "If you make a mistake, repeat it." At a concert the audience thinks that they wanted to do the same thing.

Oxford (AP) – According to a study, a British vaccine against the coronavirus appears to be safe and to boost the immune system.

The agent developed by the University of Oxford and the British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca has a twofold effect: it promotes the formation of specific antibodies as well as T cells – both of which are important for the immune system. The experts reported on the results in the British medical journal "The Lancet".

The first results of the phase 1/2 study became known last week. The trials with 1,077 healthy people were rated as promising. The clear immune response was still evident 56 days after the vaccination and could possibly be extended by a second dose, it says in "The Lancet".

Nevertheless, it is still unclear whether the vaccine called ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 offers sufficient protection, according to the experts. In order to clarify this question, further tests with thousands of volunteers in a phase III study have already started in Brazil. The vaccine is based on certain engineered viruses that are actually found in monkeys.

"There is still a lot of work to be done before we can confirm that our vaccine will help tackle the Covid-19 pandemic", emphasized co-author Sarah Gilbert from Oxford University. According to the scientists, the vaccine caused side effects such as exhaustion and headaches, but nothing serious. Britain has already ordered 100 million doses of vaccine.

Also on Monday, Chinese researchers presented in "The Lancet" Successful vaccine in a phase 2 trial with over 500 people. Feng-Cai Zhu’s team from the Jiangsu Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Wuhan writes that this is also safe and has triggered a reaction in the immune system such as antibodies or corresponding defense cells (T cells) in the blood. Any side effects were fever, tiredness or pain at the vaccination site and were mild in most cases. With this vaccine, too, it must still be checked whether the immune defense triggered is effective.

There is an international race among scientists and pharmaceutical companies for a corona vaccine. The agent from Oxford is one of the promising candidates. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 20 vaccines are currently being tested in human clinical trials.

Concerts, festivals, trade fairs or other events – none of this can take place due to the corona pandemic. In order to help the entire industry, the digital charity festival # Louder takes place on the weekend. 

The live events industry has been paralyzed for months. Due to the important measures to combat the global corona pandemic, events cannot currently take place. If you want to help those affected too, you can participate and donate an individual amount via this website.

On December 12th and 13th, the digital charity festival #lauter Werden will take place, t-online is the exclusive livestream partner. Stars such as Die Fantastischen Vier, Joy Denalane, Adel Tawil and Fritz Kalkbrenner performed on Saturday. On Sunday, the audience can look forward to more music legends.

Peter Maffay, who can be seen in the stream on Sunday from 8:05 p.m., finds: "Without the crews there are neither concerts nor festivals. And without live music it gets quiet. That is why it is now: #Lighten up and donate." The people behind the scenes should be given a voice. "We will survive this difficult time together", explains Maffay. To "crew" include, for example, technicians, construction workers, stage builders, caterers, stewards, bus and truck drivers.

t-online has open ears for the most important albums of the week and gives you music tips. This week there’s the "Helene Fischer Show"-Replacement for home, Taylor Swift suddenly has a new one and the Deftones fraternize with Robert Smith.

If you are really in the mood for new sounds, but you don’t have the time to listen to the week’s releases, t-online will give you the weekly rubric "Heard already?" a. However, there is not much going on in 2020. Here are a few last highlights for the year.

Helene Fischer – The Helene Fischer Show: My most beautiful moments

(Source: Universal Music)

How can you get this Christmas without the annual one "Helene Fischer Show" spend? Sure, a best-of will be broadcast on ZDF on December 25th, but we want more than the old camels. Especially since the summary is now also available on CD. 

40 songs, mostly duets from their shows, are on the album. And who hasn’t sung everything with our Helene? Robbie Williams, Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys, Andrea Bocelli, Tom Jones, Bryan Adams and of course dozens of long-running hits on ARD and ZDF shows. There is a Mark Forster as well as Max Giesinger, Kerstin Ott, the ship rockers Santiano or the old people’s home Goth from Unheilig. 

Most of it is of course known. Particularly impressive are the unfortunately too few Helene solo hits like "Heart quake" or "Breathless through the night". "Roller coaster" still should have been! And let’s be honest: The "Helene Fischer Show" you want to see it on TV when you haven’t been able to shovel a bite in for a long time. It’s nice on CD, but not the same. Maybe the TV recap can start more of the fire.

Taylor Swift – Evermore

Oops, where did she come from? Pop star Taylor Swift announced on Thursday that she will be releasing a new album today. The PR gag is not new, however. So Taylor doesn’t have her album until the summer "folklore" released. 

"Evermore" continues the singer / songwriter-indie-pop path, is even more reduced than the few month old brother. The Bright Eyes still send their regards. With features from Haim, The National and Bon Iver, Tay shows her love for indie / folk / whatever even more clearly. With the glossy pop of their previous LPs "Evermore" little to do. It’s a shame because there isn’t an obvious hit like that either "Shake it off" or "Bad blood" at is, but also okay because "folklore" and "Evermore" artistically the most honest records that the successful singer has recorded.

Well, now an hour of acoustic guitar pop is a bit lengthy too. Throwing three or four numbers off the tracklist would have done the whole thing good. But one can be curious what the singer will do next. She also liked emo and pop punk in her teenage years …

The Kinks – Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround

(Source: Netinfect)

Unlike the Beatles, the Rolling Stones or the Beach Boys, the Kinks have somehow been forgotten. Contemporary witnesses still have their songs in their heads, connoisseurs know them, but in the great pop culture memory The Kinks are like despite a hit "You Really Got Me" Not. In the USA you could collect just two gold records for later works.

"Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround" is still one of the band’s early albums, released almost exactly 50 years ago in November 1970. This is now being celebrated with a lavish re-release. The satirical concept album about the music business of the late 1960s, while not a huge commercial hit, is one of the group’s most popular albums. With "Lola" and "Apeman" the band was able to record two decent hits in England at the time.

The re-release includes five alternative versions of album tracks as well as a bonus CD with 2020 mixes, demos and live versions. A more than worthwhile affair for fans.

Deftones – White Pony / Black Stallion

It’s been 20 years since the Deftones started with "Back to School" and "Digital Bath" ran up and down on MTV. The accompanying album "White pony" was a chart success at the time and is now considered a modern classic in rock circles. Less Nu Metal than the first two LPs, much more experimental than the other bands on the scene.

For some time now, the band has been talking about a remix album for the milestone’s 20th birthday. At least the CD version has now been released, the LP will follow in 2021. Big names like The Purity Ring, Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park or Robert Smith from the dark giants The Cure take on the entire album and present the well-known songs in new guises. Well, now it is the case with remixes that they rarely come as originals anyway and some unspeakable dance or dubstep versions are tinkered out of them that no one needs.
