Students from the Los Rios Rock School in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., recently covered “Runnin’ With the Devil” at the same studio, Sunset Sound, where Van Halen originally recorded the track 40 years ago.
Said the producer, “Van Halen’s first iconic album took just 7 months from it’s release to become certified platinum and has since sold over 10 million copies. We pulled the tracking sheets from the Sunset Sound archives, used the same microphones, placed the Los Rios Rock School/Teacher Zone students and their instruments in the room as closely as we could replicate, and had them record the entire album in one day. Please enjoy the video! Have a marvellous [sic] time! Many thanks, Warren”
