Vince G.:
“Tune in to Piers Morgan Live on CNN as he interviews Eddie Van Halen and LL Cool J, Friday, May 3rd at 6pm, 9pm and 12am PST.”

What did everyone think?

From links

Was surprised that Piers asked about Chickenfoot and Edward’s response that he was a big fan.

Also
Not really. Told the story that in 1984, the album was number two and Thriller was number one, but Jump was number one and Beat It was number two. So the band gave him hell because his involvement with Michael allowed Thriller to be number one.

It was a nice interview. More about Edward than LL.

Was about 20 minutes long & looks like that show does not repeat on friday nights so if you missed it, then you missed it! No chickenfoot question though! As weird that it is that EVH will go on TV for this freaking LL Bean crap but not Van Halen, it was really super cool to see him on TV, healthy, in great spirits & talkative…Still seems strange seeing him with his new teeth :mrgreen:

Sorry the CHICKENFOOT question was put up at links by some dickhead.
Why post that shit??
Ed looking healthy and doing interviews which is great.
Think by the way Ed is and what Dave has said and Wolf tweeting stuff the chances of NEW music from VH soon is looking very positive.

Eddie Van Halen on LL Cool J: “I gotta give him a lot of credit for pushing the envelope”

On the heels of their iconic collaboration on the brand new album “Authentic,” this evening at 9 “Piers Morgan Live” invites music legends LL Cool J and Eddie Van Halen to join him for a face to face, world exclusive interview.

For the 45-year-old hip-hop star, “Authentic” represents a 13th studio album. However, with the songs “We’re the Greatest” and “Not Leaving You Tonight,” the record also represented an opportunity to combine forces with one of the world’s greatest guitarists:

“I reached out to Eddie,” says LL Cool J. “I had an idea about doing a song that has some rock guitar on it and I feel like Eddie’s the best in the world.”

As for the artist who helped popularize such epic hits as “Jump,” “Hot for Teacher,” and “Right Now,” Van Halen says the idea of working with LL Cool J was “a left of center thing” that hooked him in once he got a feel for the project:

“He [LL Cool J] played me all this diverse stuff and I’m going, ‘I’d really like to be a part of this,’” says Van Halen.

“I gotta give him [LL Cool J] a lot of credit,” he continues. “For being open to pushing the envelope and experimenting and not being afraid to do things that haven’t been done.”

Watch the clip and listen to the interview, then tune in at 9 for the complete interview with two of musics ultimate professionals, each an expert on his particular craft and genre.

Dave: I find it really funny that this guy doesn’t do press for his own band, but shows up on national TV to talk about a guest spot on someone else’s album.

you are so right on that
