    We Have New Halen Material!!!!!!!!!!!!

    http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...wsitemID=55667

    Jared Rutter of AVN.com reports that rock superstar Eddie Van Halen has joined forces with adult director Michael Ninn to write and perform two songs for the upcoming Ninn Worx feature "Sacred Sin".

    Although several big-name rappers have contributed material to XXX movies, Van Halen is probably the first major rock star to lend his name to an adult project.

    Van Halen told AVN.com he's not bothered by possible criticism. "I'm working with a friend very simple. I like his work," he said. "Michael Ninn is like a Spielberg to me: the imagery, the way he makes things look, just sensual.

    "We hooked up, I ended up doing the music, and it's some whompin-ass shit. I think it's the best work he's ever done, and me too. And more to come."

    "Eddie is from Amsterdam, born and raised, and his interpretation of sex and music are all in one, so it wasn't a big step for him," Ninn told AVN.com in an exclusive interview.

    He and Van Halen, he said, have been friends for "a couple of lifetimes, it seems like. It started out as him ringing me up to work on some music together. One thing just led to another, and it ended up, I had this movie in mind. We would sit at the piano he has two grand pianos in the house and play and talk all night long."

    The project came to life as a result of "the things we talked about: life in general, imagery and the power of imagery. Sometimes as he'd play I'd walk around the estate and the story kind of came to me while I was there."

    The Van Halen songs in "Sacred Sin" are "Rise" (mp3) and "Catherine" (mp3), a remix of the theme from Ninn's 2005 movie of the same name.

    "One of the things that Eddie really, really liked," Ninn said, "was the theme from 'Catherine'. He did a remix, it still carries the melody, but it's got a 'Kashmir' / LED ZEPPELIN kind of feel to it now. A very, very powerful piece of music.

    He said Van Halen was "absolutely elated with the track," and the rocker himself confirmed, "If 'Catherine' doesn't move you, you're brain-dead."

    The second song, "Rise", was a tune he had been working on already. "I heard it and just fell in love with it," Ninn said. Van Halen also contributed some "transitional piano pieces that are sprinkled throughout the movie." The rest of the music is the work of frequent Ninn collaborator Loren Alexander.

    Ninn Worx will release "Sacred Sin" on September 13, distributed by Red Light District. The two-disc set will contain music videos for both Van Halen songs. "They're pretty powerful," Ninn said, calling his friend "an incredible performer who really comes to life when the cameras are on. He's a showman."

    Nice news, TICM.
    Thanks for sharing all the MP3 and video links.
    Good to know Edward Van Halen is doing something.
    The best thing to happen now is knowing he is working with Diamond Dave on a new Van Halen record. Let's wait and see.
    Wolfgang Van Halen - "I love being a bass player. Its just me and Al a groove section. Just boom, boom, boom, and were good". GW
    ---
    Edward Van Halen - "What is next for Wolf is the next record and the next tour. Hes no different than I am. Music is his life. If he goes back to school, Ill probably go with him. GC

    I don't know about working with Dave. Maybe? From this material I see maybe a solo album???
    Can anybody tell if that's Alex on drums??? Sounds very drum machine to me on Catherine.

    I hav just one concern about VH & DD gett'n back after all these yrs,... i hope they going to be their ''hypnotic, soul sooth'n, raw rock'n best''. Expectations around the world are going to be extreamly f*@k'n high, expecially their first CD release. Let's not bullshit ourselves here, their come back will be the biggest thing in 'music news' in the last 25yrs.

    okay, here's where I get my ass kicked from all the CVH crew-I think it sounds like low grade Satriani. it reminds me of well, porn music... we're all starving and the only thing to eat is Burger King so it tastes better than it really is...

    The best part of the video is that Ed is using his "Frankie" again.......It has the extra pickup so I dont think its a Charvel.

    I loved it!!!!!!
    Is there anything left in that bottle?

    I completely see where you are coming from here.
    I find it interesting that he is playing Satch/Vai style stuff...hmmm...not interesting to me though...that wasn't Ed's specialty in my mind so I don't know why he's going there but on a bright side...at least he's doing SOMETHING. That's gotta be a step forward.

    Oh and the video...WATCH THAT HIP ED!!! Jumping around like you are in Van Halen or something...

    Doesn't move me at all. Why would Ed want his "music", and I use that loosely after hearing that, on a porno soundtrack? What's next Edweird?

    If he was going to do that, why not just play Eruption while some porn stud blows his wad? What a waste.
