Van Halen..Pt. IV?

Well it looks like Eddie and David have buried the hatchet (and for a wonder not in each other's back) and have actually decided to get the band back together again.

The second incarnation of the band, with Sammy Hagar as the lead singer was actually pretty good, but a much different sound than the original band. Even though we called it Van Hagar, most of us are quite comfortable with the material being counted as part of the Van Halen legacy.

The third incaranation however, with Gary Cherone as lead singer, is better off forgotten.

This fourth line up features Eddie and Alex Van Halen reunited with David Lee Roth. Bassist Michael Anthony who has been along for the ride in the three previous versions is sitting this one out however. Eddie's son Wolfgang is playing bass this time.

Here's hoping they can re-capture the magic.
