For fans eagerly awaiting a follow up to Van Halen’s 2012 reunion album, David Lee Roth has good news. Well, he has news of some sort.
‘I’m not going to crawl into a corner’: Van Halen snub hasn’t slowed ever-optimistic Michael Anthony
Michael Anthony’s transition out of his decades-long tenure in Van Halen was smoothed by the presence of bandmate Sammy Hagar in a new group. Turns out, even with Chickenfoot’s subsequent successes, the two still take time to remember the greatness that came before.
Gene Simmons reignited an old debate yesterday when he told Rolling Stone that he’d once talked Eddie Van Halen out of joining Kiss in the early 1980s. Thing is, Van Halen himself says that never happened.
Though he was in Chickenfoot by the time his old band reunited for 2012′s A Different Kind of Truth, Michael Anthony has seen almost all of Van Halen’s dizzying highs — and the awful lows.
David Lee Roth, of course, already let slip that Van Halen is at work on a new album. Now comes confirmation from Wolfgang Van Halen, by way of Mark Tremonti.
‘We can write songs on the same level’: Sammy Hagar compares Chickenfoot to his time in Montrose, Van Halen
Sammy Hagar says his musical relationship with Joe Satriani in Chickenfoot defies age — something that’s no easy feat in the business of rock.
David Lee Roth estimates that the newly reunited Van Halen could be finished writing a new studio album in 18 months, with another tour to follow.
“Right Now,” which later earned three nods at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, actually began two different demos — and it took months for Sammy Hagar and Eddie Van Halen to decide they went together.
Ask inductee Sammy Hagar who he thinks should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and his answer comes quickly: “Journey; I want to stick up for Journey,” says Hagar, inducted as a member of Van Halen in 2007.
