 When talking about their spat with Eddie Van Halen, Q5 bassist  Evan Sheeley told RockpagesTV, as  Q5 finished demoing their third album in the 80's. Q5 guitarist inventor Floyd D. Rose ( Tremolo System in the late 1970) got into an argument with Eddie Van Halen over who invented what on the tremolo system. The band claims that their third album demos were sent to Van Halen's producer Ted Templeman to produce. However  Eddie was still mad about the situation with Floyd and told Templeman not to go ahead in producing the album.


Q5 is an American hard rock/heavy metal band from Seattle, Washington. Their first studio album, titled Steel the Light, came out in 1984. Picking up some critical praise, the outfit toured with the likes of Lita Ford and Twisted Sister. However, the group faced internal divisions that ultimately ended the project before the 1980s came to a close. In 2014, Q5 re-formed to perform at the Sweden Rock Festival, and the band members involved found that the one-off event didn't seem nearly enough, deciding to continue on with the revamped version of the group
