Anyone who grew up during the 1980's is probably familiar with Van Halen the classic rock band. The legendary California musical act consisted of lead singer David Lee Roth and bass player Mark Anthony along with the Van Halens, guitar player Eddie and his brother and drummer Alex. The musicians cut their teeth playing local clubs on Sunset Strip in LA.
It was in LA when Gene Simmons, front man for KISS, discovered the band and put up the money for a demo tape in 1976. Two years later, they released their debut album and the rest is rock and roll history as they went on to sell more than 80 million albums.
Their self-titled debut was released in 1978 and catapulted their hard rocking musical style into the mainstream. Over the next two decades, they became superstars and set the standard for stadium concerts in the United States.
Eddie quickly rose to prominence with his blues-based guitar style, innovative solos and creative use of the tremolo bar. Many industry regard him as one of the most talented and influential guitar players ever.
The lineup remained unchanged until 1985 when the Red Rocker Sammy Hagar replaced Roth and stayed on until 1996 when Gary Cherone joined the group for two years and one album. Hagar returned for a reunion tour in 2004. Three years later Roth was back and Eddie's son, Wolfgang, served as the bassist for their 2007-2008 tour.
Their contribution to the music industry was official recognized in 2007 when they accepted their induction into the Hall of Fame in Cleveland. The group released their first album in 14 years in February 2012 and announced a 48-date tour across America and Canada. Fan reaction has been overwhelming at the revelation they will get at least one more chance to see Van Halen the classic rock band perform on stage.
