Eruption.....Eddie Van Halen
One of the first albums I purchased after I got my first car was the debut album by Van Halen. In 1978 you could still purchase 8-track cassette and since that’s what my car had….that’s what I bought. I loved every song, and still do.
Initially, Eruption was not considered a song for the album. Eddie Van Halen used it as a studio warm up; however, when a producer heard it he asked that it appear as a track on the album. Years later in an interview Eddie revealed that he had made a mistake at the top end of it.
Gee, a mistake?!?
