Let’s climb into a time machine and travel back to 1984, the year Californian hard rock married synth pop. This musical vision was immortalized by Eddie Van Halen, keen on keyboards and experimentation, in “1984″, an ambitious and dense album in which the heavy riffs of his Frankenstrat combine wonderfully with the ringing textures of the Oberheim OB -Xa, a revolutionary synthesizer released the previous year. The colossal success of the album will be proportional to the discomfiture of the group which will consummate its divorce from David Lee Roth at the end of a pharaonic tour. We tell you all this story and much more!
