By waiting until January 1984 to release their '1984' LP, Van Halen broke an impressive one-album-a-year streak that dated back to 1978 -- but they made up for it by picking up their first No. 1 single in the U.S. with the record's lead-off single, 'Jump.'
It was 14 years between Van Halen's last two albums (or even longer if you don't want to count the Gary Cherone debacle), but it seems like we won't have to wait nearly as long for new music from them again. In a new interview, David Lee Roth says that they could have something ready by the middle of 2015.
Eddie Van Halen didn't even get a mention on Michael Jackson's mega-smash album 'Thriller,' which celebrates it's 31 year anniversary today (Nov. 30), despite having a heavy hand in the success of the third radio single. The guitarist says he did the solo on 'Beat It' for free -- and even wound up re-arranging the song while Jackson was out of the room.
Throughout their entire career, Pearl Jam have always paid tribute to the classic rock that inspired them, from covering the Who and Neil Young to lead singer Eddie Vedder joining Bruce Springsteen onstage at Wrigley Field last summer.

Rock and roll history is rife with intra-band family feuds, but perhaps none received quite as much publicity or caused a bigger fan base rift than Van Halen’s ugly divorce from singer David Lee Roth in 1985. Certainly, this was the battle royal of ‘80’s hard rock! After all,
Just in case your vinyl/CD copy of Crazy From The Heat is trashed, DLR is packaging that entire EP with a collection of his favorites from later efforts into a Greatest Hits CD/DVD package, set for release on November 19th.
Van Halen has always been known as more of a "Party Rock" band than Metal, but their style, larger-than-life persona, massive arena shows, and of course Eddie's guitar was a very influential force on Heavy Metal
