If all goes as planned, guitarist Eddie Van Halen has one busy—and exciting—summer ahead. This June, he's marrying his girlfriend Janie Liszweskie. Then he'll watch his son and Van Halen bassist Wolfgang graduate from high school. After that, according to Spinner.com, he plans to begin writing and recording new Van Halen tunes, with David Lee Roth at the mic.
"Dave, Wolfie, Alex and I are a band," he tells Spinner. "I hope that after Janie and I get married, and Wolfie graduates, that we sit down and discuss recording new music, which I have tons of. If Dave's up for singing ... then do another tour, and just see where it takes us. Actually, next week or the week after Wolfie, Alex, and I are gonna start jamming. Maybe we'll give Dave a call and see what he's up to. He's off, always doing his own thing, and he checks in every now and then to see how we're doing."
The album would be the band's first studio effort since 1998's Van Halen III, which featured Gary Cherone on vocals.
