MORE VAN HALEN RUMORS
According to an unofficial site called Van Halen News Desk, the band has chosen producer John Shanks to be in charge of their new studio album. The band plans to start recording in January.
Sources also told Van Halen News Desk that the members are "very eager to tour, and that they want to tour behind new material. Eddie Van Halen has been busy writing music. Alex and Wolfgang Van Halen have joined Eddie in the studio and the three of them have been jamming and recording demos.
The Van Halens have been sending the music to David Lee Roth, who's adding the lyrics. The music is said to sound like "straight ahead rock 'n' roll and very Van Halen."
The band is also re-exploring Eddie's library of unreleased songs and riffs for inspiration. They're retooling and tweaking some of the mostly-unheard music, which have completely new lyrics from David Lee Roth. Eddie is even considering creating a song or two from the material that he wrote for "The Wild Life" movie score in the mid-80s.
More details will be announced soon.
