Hagar recently revealed to “The Howard Stern Show”:
We’re gonna go deep into the Van Halen catalog. If you’re gonna go deep into the Van Halen catalog, you need Joe Satriani.
When we go out next year in July, it will be almost exactly 20 years since Mike and I did a reunion with Ed [Eddie Van Halen] and Al [Alex Van Halen] in ’04. Mike and I just said, ‘We can’t wait another 20 years. How long can I even sing these songs? How long can I do this stuff? I just thought it’s time to serve the fans.
Satriani addressed playing Eddie Van Halen‘s guitar parts:
There are things that are so iconic, you have to nail it. But if you go deep with what he did live, he never played the same thing twice. He kept evolving; he kept pushing. He’d do the recorded version a little bit, but then he moved on.
It’s a daunting task when you do the deep dive into what he did. But it’s good to start at the beginning, and then you just learn all his little improvs and you get the idea of what he was trying to do. It’s thrilling; it’s fun.
