Eddie Van Halen filed a civil injunction last week in an effort to block the sale of Van Halen footage shot at his 5150 studios beginning in 2006. The guitarist is suing based on copyright infringement and breach of contract, among other grounds, according to court documents.
Andrew Bennett, who claims to have been hired in both 2004 and 2006 by Van Halen to film the band’s rehearsals, has put about an hour of video footage up for sale on his website.
In the trailer for “5150 Vault,” which can be viewed below, Bennett writes, “For six months, from 2006-2007, when the band was without a singer, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and Wolfgang Van Halen rehearsed twice a week at 5150. From Wolfgang’s first rehearsal and for months after, each rehearsal was filmed and documented by a single camera.”
