I had to learn long ago (the hard way) that you do not fuck with Van Halen’s people. Especially not Larry Solters, who almost had me fired over at MTV News when — acting on a tip from one of the department’s heads — I reported that Van Halen would be on that show “Rock Star” on CBS. Man, was that a fucking long-ass week. I bet MelodicRock.com’s catching some of the kind of hell I caught back in ‘05.
They reported recently that Van Halen was working with producer Ross Hogarth on a new album that would drop in 2011 and be followed by a fucking world-ass tour. But, Larry Solters is calling bullshit.
According to Blabbermouth, Solters told MelodicRock.com that there is “no tour on the books” right now and “no new album on the books.” Solters did, however, concede that the guys hung out together “working on stuff,” but as of right now — there will be no album or tour in 2011.
Not saying that this statement from Solters is not deflection, but I doubt there will be a record or tour next year…solely based on this report and the fact that Solters has spoken out to clear the record.
Yeah, look for all of that to happen in 2012. If we’re all still here.
