Rock Star: Van Halen A No-Go

Published: 2005-10-24
Van Halen have categorically denied rumours of their possible involvement in a second season of the reality TV show "Rock Star". Though reported widely in the music press that a Rock Star: Van Halen announcement was imminent, the band has flatly squashed all rumours regarding their involvement.

The rumour began when a source close to the show told MTV News that Van Halen were already auditioning potential contestants for a second installment of the popular reality series. At first, the band's spokespeople refused comment before clarifying matters with an official denial.

Rumours had also begun flying about the possible involvement of Seattle hard rockers Alice In Chains, though a spokesperson for Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell firmly denied the possibility of them becoming involved.

So, the mystery continues÷who will follow INXS and pluck a new lead singer from bar-band obscurity? Stay tuned and we'll let you know (although only when the press release is officially official this time!)
