The news that hard rock guitar virtuoso Eddie Van Halen was collaborating with rapper LL Cool J admittedly left some fans scratching their heads. But now the genre-crossing rocker is speaking out about the two new tracks, calling the experience "a breath of fresh air."
Alex Van Halen says he and his brother Eddie's long-awaited reunion with original Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth produced instant sparks. In fact, after recording five studio albums without Roth, Alex said 2012's 'A Different Kind of Truth' boasted the atmosphere of an emotional homecoming.
Last year an Oakland University (Mich.) student was suspended and severely reprimanded for writing an essay titled 'Hot for Teacher' and turning it into the teacher he was hot for. Now 57-year-old Joseph Corlett is suing members of the University and the Board of Trustees for violating his right to free speech and free expression. He wants $2.2 million.
David Lee Roth has been securely back in the Van Halen camp for over five years now, but he says that doesn't mean the band members are done arguing with each other, as they've apparently done since the moment they formed: "The conflict was immediate and sustained from day one. Not a note of this symphony has changed."
Irving Azoff, who manages everyone in Van Halen not named David Lee Roth, has declared that there are no plans for the band to mount an extensive tour in Europe this year, contradicting the singer's statement from a recent radio interview.
In a move that's sure to silence persistent doubters and reasonable cynics everywhere, Van Halen appears committed to prolonging its latest reunion with long-estranged frontman David Lee Roth well into the summer of 2013.
Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth is definitely happy to be back with the group, but does have a few concerns about how things have worked out for the band. Among them is his desire to have original bassist Michael Anthony back in the lineup.
