Van Halen’s 1980 hit “Loss Of Control” is the latest track performed by the all-star quarantine group led by Machine Head’s Phil Demmel.

The tune from Van Halen’s “Women And The Children First” sees Demmel accompanied by vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, Billy Sheehan, and Dave McClain.

“This a song Dave and I have been jamming for a while,” says Demmel. “It had to be covered. While I was touring with Nonpoint last year, my bud Jeff came to a show and we talked about our VH worship. He went on to show me his ‘tri-tone’ DLR screams that pretty much NO ONE can match. I’ve been waiting for the perfect tune to come along to ask him to do and this was perfect!

“I was going to reach for the moon and ask him to hit up his band-mate Billy to join us but he beat me to the punch and MADE IT HAPPEN. McClain puts on a tight shirt/Alex VH shades and kills this.

“Such an honor to be joined by these guys to jam on a kick-ass song by some of our heroes of Rock.”

Van Halen’s third studio album, “Women And The Children First” had a fair share of success just like its predecessor, “Van Halen II” reaching No. 6 on the US Billboard 200.
