    Default New Van Halen Album Just "Rumors" Band Says

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/17386/152865

    On Rolling Stone.Com:

    By Daniel Kreps

    The web was abuzz with rumors that Van Halen had completed a new album — the first with David Lee Roth back as lead singer — over July Fourth weekend, with a "source" even telling MelodicRock.com that a first single is due at the end of the year. The report also claimed that the new album, the classic Van Halen lineup's first since 1984, was nearly halfway complete and that it would be released in the first half of 2011. However, Eddie Van Halen's wife and spokesperson Janie Van Halen has denied the report exclusively to Rolling Stone. "What is going around is exactly that, rumors. I don't have any updates at this time," Janie Van Halen said.

    In Feburary 2009, Eddie Van Halen told Rolling Stone he was working up new tracks for the band. "I've got tons of music written, such a variety of stuff," he said. "The essence of me is obviously there, and those drums, they're always recognizable. But people expect a certain thing from Van Halen, and this isn't exactly bang-your-head-against-the-wall stuff." As Rolling Stone previously reported, Eddie Van Halen underwent surgery in his left hand last summer to fix a bone spur, twisted tendon and a cyst in the joint of his left thumb, which required four to six months of rehabilitation. The surgery, along with Eddie's desire for his son and bassist Wolfgang to finish up high school before entering the studio, further delayed plans for Van Halen to record again with David Lee Roth.

    While Eddie should be healed by now and Wolfgang is a graduate, there's been no news from the Van Halen camp. However, Ticketmaster CEO Irving Azoff accidentally let slip last September that Van Halen might be touring again in 2010; so far no plans for a tour have been announced. The band reunited with Roth in September 2007 and their 2008 reunion trek grossed $93 million.

    This is being discussed in the album/tour speculation thread.
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.

    I hate it when truly big news (for around here) gets buried in existing threads. I mean, I can understand if this forum was awash with new threads daily. But it's far from a crowded first page.

    I think what this tells me is that Janie still doesn't know how to handle PR for the band. That article tells me nothing...

    gee what a surprise...!!!

    Is this really shocking to anyone ?

    Its so beat a dead horse here but I'll say it anyway...

    WTF is the REAL problem of making a record with these guys? Is Ed's head really so far up his ass that he's so scared to release something?

    I mean all that BS in the RS interview with Iommi...that was so...I don't even know the word...pathetic/uninformed...

    He has a studio in his home...I'm sure people around him have taken him by his index finger and showed him around the web....

    Music is practically free to make and release in todays world...

    he's a coward in my book ! I still can't believe dave has kept quite and or stuck around this long...his meet us in the future line makes him look like a fool...via Ed

    Really? What did ANYBODY expect Janie to say?

    "Oh yeah! They guys have recorded a new album and a new single is going to be out by the end of the year. It's going to be GREAT you're gonna LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!"


    Um. No.

    Guys, there is already a stickied thread for this going. That means it won't get buried, btw. Closing this.
