In recent weeks Van Halen fans have been reminded of a number of David Lee Roth‘s other passions and he addresses one — sheep herding — in this video from the Van Halen News Desk. The singer takes viewers through the art of training a dog to herd, mixing in quips that only he could think of along the way.
Michael Anthony‘s backing vocals were secretly almost as important to the success of Van Halen as Eddie’s shredding, but former frontman Sammy Hagar says his bass playing skills were never fully utilized. So, in preparing to record the first Chickenfoot album, he and Anthony decided not to repeat that mistake.
On the surface, things are going smoothly for the Van Halen reincarnate. They’ve successfully released ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ their first new album with David Lee Roth since 1984, and there is nothing to indicate anything will get in the way of their show in Buffalo on March 9 at the First Niagara Center .
Def Leppard‘s 2012 trip around the globe is turning into a quasi hair band festival. Poison drummer has confirmed rumors started by lead singer Bret Michaels. The two bands will once again hit the road together this summer.
Last night in Los Angeles, Van Halen gave critics and industry types even more reason to be optimistic about the upcoming U.S. tour. The band played for over an hour at Henson Studios in Hollywood, including three new cuts from ‘A Different Kind of Truth‘ amongst the greatest hits set list.
German women wouldn’t have an issue with the lip shaped urinals at the recently opened Rolling Stones museum in Lüchow, Germany if they came installed with tongues. That way, the toilet would more accurately resemble the famous lips logo the band has long used in promotional material.
The name of ‘Blood and Fire,’ a newly-previewed song from Van Halen‘s ‘A Different Kind of Truth’ album, probably won’t ring familiar to longtime fans of the band. But Alex Van Halen’s beat and Eddie Van Halen’s noodling on the track may take some knowledgeable fans back to the mid-’80s. That’s because the new song — previewed in the video below — is based on an instrumental called ‘Ripley’ from ‘The Wild Life’ movie.
Rock legend Neil Young doesn’t have a bone to pick with the artists of today (well, he may but he didn’t sound off about it this week) but he is upset with the quality of recordings purchased through digital retailers.
