    Default Van Halen 2012???

    http://music.yahoo.com/news/van-hale...134041431.html

    Van Halen may still be cagey about whether they will release a new album on Interscope sometime in 2012, but they have announced plans to tour through the year with original frontman David Lee Roth. The band confirmed that they will be hitting the road in a video posted to their website yesterday, but they have not yet announced specific dates. Those dates should be revealed pretty soon, though – tickets for the first wave of shows will go on sale on January 10th.

    Van Halen's new album, their first with Roth since 1984, is rumored to be hitting stores sometime in early 2012. Roth previously reunited with his former bandmates for a world tour in 2007 and 2008, and the success of that outing paved the way for this more permanent reunion.
    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    They'd be severely limited in the number of SoCal area shows they could do thru September 2012. Plus the AEG vs. Live Nation negotiations.

    It's a weird choice for a headliner. I think they only did ONE(Quebec?) outdoor show on the entire reunion tour.

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I said it 25 years ago, and I'll say it today... There is nothing this man can't make a guitar do...



    And I may as well confess that I took my first electric guitar and used black electrical tape to copy his signature guitar look.

    Looks like Van Halen could possibly play Coachella 2012, they just announce their tour dates, look at the April dates, April 13 & 15 they are free, and April 20 & 22 they are also free.

    Van Halen have announced a full North American tour in support of their upcoming album A Different Kind Of Truth. The album is heavily rumored to be dropping on Feb. 7th, as suggested by the image above, and will be the first studio album to feature David Lee Roth since their iconic 1984 album. The first single/video for Tattoo will be coming out next week.*Kool & The Gang will open on select dates, although those have yet to be announced. The massive tour schedule can be seen below.

    Spooks, how could you fail to report essential information, like the fact that David Lee Roth is now wearing Carharts overalls instead of assless chaps?
