Eddie Van Halen Is Hopeful For New Music and Tour

Billboard.com reports: Almost nine months since Van Halen wrapped its first tour since 1984 with original lead singer David Lee Roth, guitarist Eddie Van Halen is hopeful there will be future activity for the group.

Van Halen tells Spinner.com that after he and girlfriend Janie Liszewski get married in June and his son Wolfgang (who played bass on the reunion tour) graduates from high school, he plans to discuss recording new music, which he says he has "tons of."

"If Dave's up for singing ... then do another tour, and just see where it takes us," Van Halen said. "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."
