David Lee Roth Recording with Van Halen
Tue, 10 Aug 2010 11:55:04
A press release announcing that Van Halen were renewing a publishing deal contained a big nugget of information stored deep within it. Our friends at FMQB pointed out that the release included the following sentence: "The band is currently in the studio recording an album with Roth that is due for release in 2011." Holy shit, Batman! The rumors of a Van Halen record with Roth back at the helm have been buzzing since he and Eddie Van Halen and crew made up and toured a few years back.
Say it is so, please! We need new VH music with DLR singing. The always quotable Roth did once say something to the effect that Van Halen made you want to drink, have sex and rock the hell out, while the Sammy Hagar-led version of Van Halen (often called Van Hagar) made you want to drink milk, drive a minivan and reside in Suburbia.
The band is expected to tour again in 2011.
Are you psyched at the prospect of new VH?
