New Van Halen Album Now Rumored for Early 2012

For fans of Van Halen‘s original lineup, the band’s last three decades or so have been punctuated with more than a few frustrations and disappointments, including their brief reunion with David Lee Roth in 1996, bassist Michael Anthony’s rudely handled dismissal, and an overall lack of new music since a pair of new tracks were appended to the double-disc ‘Best of Both Worlds’ compilation way back in 2004.

Roth has been back in the band since 2006, with rumors of a new album persistently surfacing over the last five years. The buzz has grown louder than ever this year, and for awhile, it looked like this might finally be the year Van Halen came back — but it looks like we’ll have to keep on waiting.

The film, titled ‘Pearl Jam Twenty,’ is getting a hefty double-disc soundtrack that includes live tracks, demos, and assorted rarities from Pearl Jam’s vaults — and although it doesn’t come out until September 20, you can listen to the whole thing now.

Twisted Sister Rocks Again with ‘Double Live’

A little rock ‘n’ roll attitude and a whole lot of makeup can go a long, long way. Just ask the members of Twisted Sister, who will celebrate their 40th anniversary next year — and who are gearing up for the release of a double live DVD, fittingly titled ‘Double Live: Northstage Theatre 1982 / New York Steel Benefit show 2001.’

As you’d guess from the title, ‘Double Live’ collects a pair of Twisted Sister concerts, one from the band’s early ’80s heyday, and another from a reunion performance staged by the classic lineup to benefit the families of safety workers who perished in the September 11 attacks. As the DVD press release puts it, “The reaction to Twisted Sister’s set was overwhelming and led directly to the ongoing existence of the band today.”

Puddle of Mudd Covers Led Zeppelin, Elton John, and More on New Album [VIDEO]

When they entered the studio to work on songs for a follow-up to 2009′s ‘Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate,’ Puddle of Mudd had a hard time finding the inspiration for new material — so they decided just to have fun playing some of their favorite tunes by other artists.

“We were really burned out, and when we started trying to write again it just wasn’t time yet,” said guitarist Paul Phillip in a recent Billboard interview. “We had been doing (AC/DC’s) ‘TNT’ and (the Steve Miller Band’s) ‘The Joker’ and had so much fun with those that one thing led to another, and we decided to make a covers record. It was just something fun to do, and we had a blast.”

Tom Petty Demands Michele Bachmann’s Campaign Stop Using ‘American Girl’

Michele Bachmann has now been told by Tom Petty that his song ‘American Girl’ is off limits for her presidential campaign.

Petty’s outspoken protectiveness of his music is certainly nothing new — in the ’80s, he engaged in a protracted public legal battle with his former label, MCA, over rising record prices, and more recently, he asked the Bush campaign to refrain from using his songs at campaign events.
