Van Halen Clan To Temporarily Adopt David Lee Roth

Via Billboard:

Sources tell Billboard.com a contract could be signed as soon as today for Live Nation to produce a 40-date amphitheatre tour by Van Halen this summer, with original frontman David Lee Roth back in the fold for the first time in more than 20 years.

As previously reported, guitarist Eddie Van Halen’s 15-year-old son Wolfgang has stepped in for original bassist Michael Anthony in the new incarnation of the group, which also features drummer Alex Van Halen.

We love rumors, but we love Billboard reported rumors even more. (That’s the truthiest rumor there is!) So, Diamond Dave is set to party like it’s 1984, eh? Three Van Halens and a Lee Roth sounds like a good time to us. We insist on flying splits.
