    Van Halen canceled dozens of tour dates this summer, causing speculation that the infighting was out of control. Not so, says singer David Lee Roth.

    DLR said, "The band is getting along famously…better than we have in quite some time." There you have it. The band is known for its volatility, but you are getting it from the horse's mouth.

    The leg-kicking singer continued, "As usual, we bit off way more than we could chew when it came to scheduling. The band is winning, but our schedule has been sidelined for unnecessary roughness. If we continue past July 4 and all the way into Australia and Japan, then we're asking for the robot zombie tour…you don't wanna get to that point."

    So they are doing it for the fans. They want to have good shows each and every night. They don't want to phone it in and disappoint the diehards.

    Do you believe DLR?
