Eddie Van Halen has sued a videographer who filmed Van Halen rehearsals in 2006, saying Andrew Bennett is trying to sell the footage without permission.
The material was shot when Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang Van Halen were rehearsing before David Lee Roth rejoined the band. There's a trailer for the footage on YouTube, offering it up for sale. TMZ reports that Bennett threatened to release the footage a few years ago, claiming he'd never gotten paid.
Van Halen's suit states that the guitarist settled the matter with Bennett in 2015 and received the rights to the footage as part of the agreement. Van Halen is asking a judge to order the removal of the video, to keep Bennett from selling or releasing the footage, and for damages.
