Eddie Van Halen won the Best Music accolade at the 25th annual Adult Video News Awards, for his work on the adult film feature, Sacred Sin.
The awards ceremony took place on January 12th at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Vegas.
For Sacred Sin, Eddie did two songs, “Rise” and “Catherine”.
“One of the things that Eddie really, really liked,” director Michael Ninn said, “was the theme from ‘Catherine’. He did a remix, it still carries the melody, but it’s got a ‘Kashmir’ / LED ZEPPELIN kind of feel to it now. A very, very powerful piece of music.”
The second song, “Rise”, was a tune he had been working on already. “I heard it and just fell in love with it,” Ninn said. Van Halen also contributed some “transitional piano pieces that are sprinkled throughout the movie.” The rest of the music is the work of frequent Ninn collaborator Loren Alexander.
