The new Van Halen CD--A Different Kind of Truth--will hit the Gallery of Sound stores on February 7.
After a 16-year hiatus, David Lee Roth is back on vocals. And Eddie's son Wolfgang is the new bass player.
The new tour starts in Philadelphia, and I'd bet the tickets are selling briskly. Between Roth's showmanship and Eddie's guitar pyrotechnics, they are to big rock shows what Obama is to piling up big debts.
Still and all, I still wish Patty Smythe had accepted Eddie's long ago offer to front the band.
