Van Halen to rock the Grammys!!
VAN HALEN: An Announcement at Grammy Show?
It looks like the Grammys will kickstart the countdown to a new Van Halen album. A press release from the Recording Academy about its November 30th Grammy Nominations Concert Live promises an announcement from a "truly iconic group regarding their reunion on the Grammy stage February 12th." Then came an official Grammy tweet asking, "Does this hint make you wanna 'Jump' and 'Dance the Night Away'?"
The new Van Halen album with David Lee Roth is reportedly done and rumored for release in early spring, so premiering a song from it on the Grammys seems like a no-brainer. The band is also scheduled to start a tour in February.
Let's hope this goes better than Van Halen's last appearance on an awards show. In October 1996, Roth joined the band to present the Best Male Video award at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York, leading to speculation that he was back in the fold. But Eddie Van Halen reportedly resented Roth for hogging the spotlight, and decided to cancel those plans, despite the songs they recorded together for a Van Halen best-of collection.
You can rest assured Rockaholics that we will be all OVER this for ya!!
