Premier Guitar and guitarist extraordinaire Dweezil Zappa, son of the legendary composer/guitarist Frank Zappa, have joined efforts to celebrate the life of this generation’s most influential guitarist, Edward Van Halen. Already months in the making prior to Van Halen’s untimely October 6 passing, the joint endeavor is a new podcast partnership in which, each week, host Zappa will invite a different guitar luminary to open up about their encounters with Edward Van Halen and his music.

Welcome to Runnin' With the Dweezil
01:26 (Subscribe here to hear the full episodes!) From Van Halen’s electrifying 1978 debut on through the Sammy Hagar and Gary Cherone years, all the way up to their 2012 reunion with founding vocalist David Lee Roth, Runnin’ with the Dweezil will cover it all. “Our goal was to provide an entertaining, in-depth look at each Van Halen album, seen through the eyes of top guitarists. A song-by-song discovery of the nuances in the music that literally changed people’s lives,” says Zappa. In each episode both Zappa and that week’s guest will share personal stories about the Van Halen albums that affected their own development as a musician. You’ll also hear guests’ accounts of their unique brushes with EVH himself.
