    That's right Van Hagar fan. You heard it here first, on the one and only David Lee Roth Army! And as usual, the David Lee Roth Army has the breaking news first. In fact, we believe we have it before Dave himself even has it! Ed, do not shoot Kody, he's not the one that told us!



    Van Hagar is set to do a fall tour in 2017. Yes, that's right. Van Hagar live and in concert in 2017. So, all you girls and girly boys, dust off your parachute pants, dust off your old Bic lighters, dig deep into your pockets, and get ready to hear all those sappy love songs, live in front of your naked screaming ears. Seems the Van Halen brothers figure they have bled Classic Van Halen fan dry, and now it is time to get into Van Hagar fans pockets. Oh, and as a real slap in the face to Classic Van Halen fan, Michael Anthony will be doing this tour too. If Van Hagar fan is really lucky, maybe they’ll come out with a live album and claim it is the “definitive Van Hagar”. We are also being told that this will be the last tour, and the Van Halen’s will “retire” at the end of the tour.

    What about Wolfgang? Well, you all probably know he's been working on his own album. So, he'll reportedly be opening the show with his band!

    What about ole Dave? Even though we’ve been told Ed and Dave haven’t talked since the end of the tour, we have been informed that the idea of a tour with both Roth and Hagar was floated out there, and was not well received by the Diamond one. So, since Van Hagar is going to pretend it's 1985 again, why shouldn't Dave do the same thing? We have no idea if they'll be able to pull it off, or to what extent, but we're told Diamond Dave is trying to get the EEAS band back together, and this time it won't be for a one off gig, like the one that got shut down by the fire marshals in Los Angeles.



    Last but not least, let’s hope this paves the way for the release of the album Dave and John 5 have completed, and sitting there waiting for release, as also first reported here at the David Lee Roth Army back on November 23, 2013 in this thread.

    Tobacco Road writer John D Loudermilk dies aged 82
    Nashville songwriter was best known for two songs that became huge hits for rock bands




    The Nashville songwriter John D Loudermilk, whose songs were hits for George Hamilton IV, Eddie Cochran, the Everly Brothers, Marianne Faithfull, Glen Campbell and many more, has died at the age of 82.

    His death on Wednesday at home in Christiana, Tennessee, was made public via Facebook by his friend and fellow songwriter Bobby Braddock. He had suffered a heart attack.

    Loudermilk was also a recording artist who began his career as a performer in the 1950s, but his greatest success came when his songs were recorded by others – his first big hit came in 1957, when Cochran recorded Sittin’ in the Balcony.

    Although he was a Nashville songwriter, primarily composing with mainstream country stars in mind, his songs were versatile and adaptable enough to have been recorded by distinctly uncountry artists including Marilyn Manson and David Lee Roth.



    His two most famous songs, in fact, became hits for rock bands. Tobacco Road, which Loudermilk recorded on his own in 1960, was covered by the English group the Nashville Teens in 1964 and became a huge hit, and then a staple for garage bands around the world. It has been recorded more than 200 times, including versions by, Lou Rawls, Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon and War, Rare Earth and David Lee Roth.

    The Pale Faced Indian, recorded by Marvin Rainwater in 1959, was revamped by Paul Revere and the Raiders in 1971 as Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian), and captured the post-hippy mood of guilt over the treatment of America’s first peoples, giving the Raiders their only US No 1 single. The song was later covered by the UK punk band 999, who reached No 51 in the UK charts with it.

    In 1961, Loudermilk told the Tennessean newspaper in Nashville about the inspiration behind his songwriting. “I’m looking for the most different thing I can find,” he said. “Everybody’s writing ‘I love you truly.’ You’ve got to find something new. I talk to drunks at the bus station, browse through kiddie books at the public library [and] get phrases from college kids and our baby sitter. You’ve got to be looking all the time.”
