Prime Cuts: Eddie Van Halen Breaks Down 10 Van Halen Classics, from "Eruption" to "Right Now"
For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge (1991)
“When I came up with ‘Poundcake,’ it didn’t really excite anyone until Andy [Johns, producer] suggested I use some electric 12-strings to flesh out the rhythm tracks. It turned out to be just the thing the song needed.
"All of a sudden, the lyrics, the title and everything came into sharp focus. What you hear are two electric 12-strings doubled beneath my usual dirty guitar. It’s an odd sound. It wasn’t really planned.
“The solo goes four bars, another four bars, then two bars. Al kept insisting that it wasn’t finished. He likes to count, and I never do. I’m strictly feel. I’m always screwing around with time, because I never count.”
