Van Halen Jumping Labels

The collapse of the opening reunion tour in Australia, reports that Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth were having it out over the quality of some of Roth's vocals and, now, reports that the band is changing labels right in the middle of putting out a new album make it seem less and less likely that anything but trouble is ahead for Van Halen.  Long time fans already consider it bogus that the group has pitched the lineup as the original lineup since Michael Anthony's spot is still occupied by Eddie's son, Wolfgang.
Every VH album has come out on Warner Brothers, but the band may be close to signing a deal to jump to Columbia.  How hard WB fights to keep them might be a good indication of how strong it considers the album to be.  If WB just lets them go, don't count on an album that comes even close to meeting expectations.
