With Van Halen’s new album, A Different Kind of Truth, finally unleashed on the world February 7, and with big first week sales projections in an era when music sales are low, the band is indeed finally back.
Some tweets from notable people during the last week:
“The more I listen to new VH the more I’m happily stunned @ how heavy & ass kicking it is. Rare a band this old has this kind of balls still! Even more stunning when you consider Tattoo, which is why I wouldn’t give an opinion till I heard the full. Glad I stuck to that! It rips!!”
Chad Smith (Chickenfoot, Chili Peppers):
“Alex Van Halen playin his ass off on their new record!”
“Van Halen was killer tonight at the Forum. Eddie was brilliant. So amazing to hear / watch.”
“I’ve waited 25 years for last night. It was worth every second… Welcome back Dave Roth. Rock has a new sheriff.”
