Eddie Van Halen’s 21-year-old son, Wolfgang, tweeted:

Eddie Van Halen has been struggling with alcohol for a very long time. Since the days of Van Halen.

Which means a very verrrry long time.

He claims he developed "the whole alcoholism thing" when he asked his dad what he can do to fight off nerves when playing guitar up on stage in front of people.

His father gave him a shot of vodka and

Adele Vs. Van Halen: Billboard 200 Edition

adele vs van halen billboard 200 edition

It's on!

According to industry sources, both Van Halen's A Different Kind of Truth and Adele's 21 will be fighting for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 next week!

We're hearing that the new Van Halen album is set to sell 180,000 to 200,000 copies, which SHOULD land it that top spot on the chart…but because of Adele's Grammy buzz, she could end up selling enough units to stay ahead of Eddie and co.

Also, Adele

Eddie Van Halen Donates 75 Guitars To El Lay Public Schools

Filed under: Music MinuteCharity

Eddie Van Halen

Nice guy!

Eddie Van Halen endorsed musical education by donating 75 electric guitars to El Lay schools from his personal collection last week.

The rock star made the donation to Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports music education in public schools, and said:

"Music is the universal language. It has the ability to transcend and convey every human emotion that exists without saying a word. Music kept me off the streets and out of trouble and gave me something that was mine that no one could take away from me. Music education and families are dealing with the economic times, and I wanted to help them. If I can help a kid discover a liking, or even a passion for music in their life, then that's a wonderful thing. Music has provided a good life for me and hopefully it can help make life better for others with this donation."

So true! Music has done nothing but good in this world and we're happy famous musicians are willing to support others trying to learn how to make it!

You know, people shouldn't make promises they can't keep!

Last night, it was rumored that Van Halen would be making a triumphant return to the stage for the Grammy Nominations concert in LA. The performance would mark the first time the reunited band would be performing on TV and many fans were super excited to see Eddie Van Halen with original lead singer David Lee Roth tear it up once again!

However, the concert went up … and no Van Halen. So what gives?

Seems some wires got crossed and as the Recording Academy President Neil Portnow reveals, the guys just weren't ready. In his statement, he explains:

Is Van Halen Leaving Warner Bros For Columbia Records?

Filed under: Music Minute

van-halen-columbia-records.jpg

That, dear friends, is what we are hearing.

According to reports, after 35 years at Warner Bros., Van Halen has left WB for Sony. An insider reveals that Columbia A&R executive Stephen Ferrera has been dubbed the task of overseeing the next Van Halen album, which will hopefully come out sometime in 2012 and in fact be the first album featuring David Lee Roth since 1984.

Another insider at the label points out that "nothing has been signed yet, but Columbia has been in the lead for some time.”

While we're stoked about the fellas making another album, we can't help but wonder what the WB did to them to make them want to leave after three and half decades together. It seems kind of odd, right?
