    IT'S ON!:
    Guitarist Eddie Van Halen and his brother, drummer Alex Van Halen, released a typically vague and short statement today, "[Van Halen] is currently in the studio recording an album with Roth that is due for release in 2011."

    And news is all over Australian media about a first quarter album release and tour: "Van Halen are hotly tipped to be doing a tour of Australia next year. And we're talking the 'real' Van Halen including the jumping David Lee Roth on vocals and six-string god Eddie Van Halen. Our music reporter Nui Te Koha gave us the rocking news this morning. "Big, big rumour. Van Halen with David Lee Roth, early next year." The band's new album due out in March next year is their first with singer David Lee Roth in 25 years and "the tour will follow shortly after that".
    Eddie Van Halen told US Rolling Stone last year that his band's reunion tour through America in 2008 was a massive success. They played 74 shows and the tour ended up making $US93 million. "We are a band,” said Eddie Van Halen. “We had a lot of fun – Dave was a blast. I'm looking forward to getting on it."
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    It ain't the "real" Van Halen unless Mikey is in it. But with the way he was treated in the past, I'm glad he's in the Foot.

    I'll probably buy it on iTurds b/c 3/4 of the original =VH= is better than 0/4...

    I've been surprised and amused at how the Warner/Chappel quote has caught fire. But I guess that fact checking is just not as important these days...

    Wanna see something really sad? The Washington Post has this blurb in it's "Pop Music Blog" today...

    "Van Halen and David Lee Roth - together again, for however long it lasts. The hard rock megastars are, believe it or not, recording a new album with original lead singer Roth and it's scheduled for release in 2011, with a tour to follow."

    When you click the link, it takes you to Spinner which actually attributes the quote to Warner/Chapel....

    "Hard rock legends Van Halen are hard at work on a new album with original vocalist David Lee Roth, according to a statement made late last week by its music publishers. Various reports also suggest the group will hit the road upon the LP's completion sometime next year."

    So now I guess the Post expects you to jump through internet hyperlink hoops to get the full story.

    The sad part is that we VH faithful have been disappointed enough to doubt statements like that, so we question the source and temper our enthusiasm. The more casual fans are not as jaded and probably take a statement like that at face value. They probably just assume that if the news section on the band's website carries more than a New Year's greeting from the band.
    I like Van Halen.

    I checked "facts" as much as every other bloody outlet worldwide did...

    You'd think with the Warner/Chappell announcement, someone on howdie Doodie Mountain would actually open the windows and throw the fans a bone.

    So the quote is not a quote....ok, killed that, but the remaining speculation about an OZ tour and the album is exactly as publicised all over the country here yesterday.

    As per usual... Van Halen + Announcement = ClusterFuck.

    I'll go back to peddling rumors until the week the album can be found on shelves
