About Van Halen

Van Halen can lay claim to being one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th Century. Based around the prodiguous guitar talents of Eddie Van Halen, in the early 1980s, the band were the most popular act around.

Their self titled debut album sold over six million copies, buoyed by the success of singles You Really Got Me and Runnin' With the Devil. The success continued with hit albums Van Halen II, Woman and Children First, Fair Warning and Diver Down. It was their new year's day release 1984 however that took the band to the next level, containing the smash hit single Jump along with staples Ill Wait, Panama and Hot For Teacher.

Following the album's release however the band underwent the first of many personell changes, as lead singer Dave Lee Roth was replaced by Sammy Hagar. Hagar's debut Van Halen album, 5150 was a massive success, with tracks like Why Can't This Be Love and Love Walks In becoming hit singles.

Hagar remained with the band until an acrimonious split in 1996 when Dave Lee Roth returned briefly, only to be replaced again by former Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone, who recorded one album with the band - before leaving in 1998.
