Rock School kids re-record Van Halen's debut album at Sunset Sound Studios

September 7, 2017

Van Halen's self-titled 1978 debut album was the basis for a recording project for the students of the Los Rios Rock School in San Juan Capistrano, California.

The kids took a field trip to Sunset Sound in Los Angeles where they re-recorded the album in its entirety. It was at Sunset, in the exact same room, where VH recorded the album in 1977.

Working off the records that the studio kept, the students were able to recreate, as closely as possible, the exact same sessions -- minus of course some possible mind-altering substances and/or liquids that Van Halen was known for partaking in.
