. We could do no wrong. We just said, let's start recording today. We just made a date. We had come off a very lengthy tour for '5150'
had a bunch of riffs he was jamming around. I had a bunch of lyrics in notebooks that I had been thinking about and writing. And we just put them together and jammed in the studio. It was just complete, simple, magic.""Ye Olde Metal: Van Halen's OU812"
