The long-silent Edward and Alex Van Halen have finally submitted to an interview in support of their new album ‘A Different Kind of Truth’ (reviewed here), and the correspondent they chose for this honor is none other than the one and only “Diamond” David Lee Roth, their very own lead singer.
One the eve of Motley Crue‘s current run of intimate Las Vegas residency shows, we talked to guitarist Mick Mars about the band’s plans for the big event, how he’s progressing with his own solo album, and when fans can possibly expect the next Motley record. (Hint: 2013′s looking like a big year for Crue fanatics.)
Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has dropped a potential bombshell on the band’s recently announced original line-up reunion, stating that he will sit out of both the group’s recording sessions and tour plans unless he is offered a “signable” contract that financially reflects his contributions to the band’s history.
You gotta stand up for your friends, and for yourself. Surely somebody told Aerosmith singer and ‘American Idol‘ judge Steven Tyler that lesson at some point during his childhood. And yet, he sat there passively as three different classic rock songs were savaged by various ‘Idol’ hopefuls in Portland, Oregon, including one of his very own tunes.
We’re very pleased to bring you an exciting clip of perhaps the heaviest song to emerge so far from the new Van Halen album, ‘China Town.’ The full version of the track will arrive Feb. 7 along with the rest of ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ the group’s first album with original lead singer David Lee Roth in 28 years.
Steven Tyler boarded an aircraft carrier for tonight’s (Jan. 22) episode of ‘American Idol,’ but not before complaining that he was about to “listen to 40 different people sing the same Adele song for six %$#$ hours.”
Reportedly a few lucky people have already gotten to hear the new Van Halen record ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ well ahead of its Feb. 7 street date. Judging from the internet accounts of these highly guarded listening sessions, the band’s first outing with original singer David Lee Roth in nearly 30 years is going to make fans pretty happy.
A half-minute clip of the new Van Halen single ‘Tattoo‘ has premiered on Amazon UK‘s website. The full song is expected to be released next Tuesday, Jan. 10 as the next major step in the massive promotional campaign that has unfolded on the band’s behalf in the last few days.
