Photo: Van Halen At The Roxy With New Record Label Interscope

.

Van Halen is up to something…

This Monday morning the VHND received emails from multiple sources saying that Van Halen was having their gear delivered to the famous ROXY club in Los Angeles that very day, complete with fake palm trees from Dave’s house. The band was to shoot a video at the famous L.A. club that day.

Then tonight, this very telling photo surfaced taken at the Roxy, and featuring Van Halen with their manager, Irving Azoff, and Interscope executives. This photo marks the first official confirmation from the band that they have signed with a new record company and are actually about to release a new CD!

In the photo: (L-R) Alex Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Iovine, Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M Records, Irving Azoff, Executive Chairman of Live Nation Entertainment and Chairman and CEO of the Front Line Management Group, Steve Berman, Vice Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M Records, David Lee Roth and Jim Urie, President and CEO, Universal Music Group Distribution. (Photo by Roth’s main photographer, Robert Yager).

This photo speaks volumes about a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT coming soon…

    @DL: The hair and weight loss was mentioned a few times, your not the first.
    I think the whole band looks great, but did you notice Daves standing away from the rest of the band? Oh thats right, thats been mentioned too, thank god they form a giant V the way they are standing, cause if they didnt… I dont know, the fabric of space and time might collapse.

    @Jason Bourne
    He’ll to pay? I could just imagine the eruption (pun intended) if the announced reunion group came out and it was all that is left of the Jackson Five!

    Sorry Full-Bug85, but mine was the 500th comment, what do i win?

    @Lupercal: No, I won’t call anyone a douche.

    I too think whatever Dave was doing in 1985 was not because he wanted to leave VH, but because he needed something to do or wanted to pursue another opportunity. They (Dave and Eddie) really needed people to step in in that time frame to make them talk things through. I have always wondered how that did not happen (meaning how someone did not say, hey boys don’t break this up when it is the biggest it will ever be. Certainly, they did not seem happier as a result of the break-up. But then, history would have been really boring without the Dave vs Sammy debate, the debate that still rages on.

    @Dirty Hot Ducky: Five days? Now it’s two, and I’m about ready to have a cow. I have never worried so much about how I look, and it’s completely silly. Like this is about me, please, but I cannot help it.

    @JohnM: What do I win? Classic. You win bragging rights. and that’s a good thing.
