Back in February 2019, John 5 talked in a conversation with Cobras and Fire, and remembered the time when he was working with David Lee Roth for Roth’s 5th solo album. He said:
“Dave just wanted to make a kickass heavy rock record — kind of like the old Van Halen. He always described… ‘Cause we did our record live. And he said, ‘We’re gonna do it just like Van Halen did back in the day. We’re gonna do it live.’
He wanted everything like that — just really live-sounding and not a lot of overdubs, and just hit it hard in the studio like that, which was really cool.”
