Van Halen Shoots Down Album News

Add Van Halen to the 'is too, is not' ranks.  As with persistent reports that the Rolling Stones are planning to record and tour, VH is now denying reports that the band has been in the studio and is also throwing cold water on the idea of a 2011 tour. Larry Solters, labeled an official source for the group, shot down reports in no uncertain terms, telling, '...none of it was true', and going on to say, 'no new album is on the books... no new tour on the books.'  Since tour reports were attributed to band manager Irving Azoff (who issued no denial), and even Solters acknowledges that band members have spent time together '...working on stuff', both a tour and album still seem like good bets to us in 2011.  The amount major promoters would throw down to make a tour happen has to be astronomical. Plus, denying reports often ends up being a useful tactic to get the media to start playing closer attention to a band that's coming out of hibernation.
