Longtime Van Halen producer Ted Templeman says he was wrong about one of the band’s biggest hits.
Templeman told Rolling Stone that he didn’t like “Jump”, saying he didn’t like the keyboards – played by Eddie Van Halen – or David Lee Roth’s lyrics.
Of course, “Jump” ended up topping the charts and Templeman admits that he was wrong – even though he still doesn’t like the song.
Templeman says Eddie Van Halen was underrated as a songwriter, saying “Ed’s impact is he brought pop stuff into his music”.
