VIDEO: Van Halen remember the club days

Van Halen have released a new video.

In the footage, the band is heard talking about their club days, back in the 70s, when they were playing the Southern California bar cicuit.

VH regularly played L.A. clubs like Gazzarri’s, and The Whisky A Go Go and The Starwood.

“The ideal, like in a movie,” begins David Lee Roth, “is that you’re always thinking about the arena stage, and that’s the only thing that’s on your mind as you’re working as a musician. That greater idea is always there, looming consciously. Where I don’t think it was that for us, at least it wasn’t for me. It went in very short stages, like one day, I’m gonna be the King of Gazzarri’s, one day we’ll be the top guys at The Starwood.”

VH’s new album will be released February 7.

Alice Cooper to rock Maui on New Year’s Eve

Alice Cooper will rockin’ into 2012 in Maui, Hawaii.

The Maui News reports Cooper will play Mala Wailea, the famous oceanfront restaurant that is lobby level at Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, on New Year’s Eve.

In addition to the shock rocker, the bill includes "Weird Al" Yankovic, Pat Simmons and Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers, and Bob Rock; comedian Tom Arnold will once again return as emcee.

Alice’s manager Shep Gordon is one of the owners of the restaurant.

"I would like to thank all of the artists for sharing their New Year's Eve to help the beneficiaries of this event, the Maui Food Bank and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center," says Gordon, a Maui resident, impresario of concerts and other ventures, and friend to Hollywood's "A listers" - some who will be in the house, tucked away in the private VIP Buddha Room.

In the past, legendary artists such as Carlos Santana, John Mayall, Mick Fleetwood, Michael Bolton and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger have also played the intimate venue.

Aerosmith: Joe Perry talks new album, tour during live Twitter chat

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry hosted his first Twitter chat Thursday night, taking questions from fans around the globe.

As expected, there were lots of questions about the new album and upcoming tour, Steven Tyler, guitar gear and favourite places to play, and eat at, on the road.

Aerosmith have been working with producer Jack Douglas on their first album of original material in a decade; the band have been talking about the project being released this Spring.

Perry was asked which vintage Aerosmith album does the new recording remind him of, to which he replied, “people have said when we play the rough tracks it sounds like it's from the 70s but for me, it's too early to tell.”

As for hitting the road to support the new disc, “we are planning on touring this summer in the US and Canada,” writes Joe, and “we plan on coming back to South America in 2013, but we have to plan around my lead singers day job.”

And speaking of Steven Tyler, Perry was asked how things were with the band’s frontman. “Things are good, we had great moments on stage and off. The band is really looking fwd to the tour this summer.”

What did Joe first think when Steven fell down and broke some teeth in Paraguay? “Oh f**k, he's done it again!,” replied Perry. “The poor bastard. He's accident prone and got such a good heart for his fans and I felt bad 4him.”

A few other cool tidbits:

On new solo music...

Perry:
“We are talking about a compilation Joe Perry Project record in the future with some new songs on it.”

On releasing his own book...

Perry:
“Yes I'm working on a book now.”

On the best band he’s ever seen live...

Perry:
“I'd say that Cheap Trick is the most consistently great band and I've seen them dozens of times.”

Check out all the Q&A on Joe’s Twitter feed here.

Aerosmith: Steven Tyler’s engagement confirmed by jeweler

While fans await official word from Steven Tyler, his jeweler tells People magazine that the rocker is engaged to longtime girlfriend Erin Brady.

According to jeweler Loree Rodkin, the proposal was a surprise.

“He [Tyler] was working, so I picked stones, built settings, showed him choices and sent him pictures on his phone,” she tells People. “He asked for guidance but the choice was his. Having made jewelry for both Erin and Steven made it an effortless process, as I know their taste.”

Word spread when the couple were photographed in Maui on Christmas Day, with Erin sporting a new diamond ring on her finger.

Brady’s ring is a 5-carat, brilliant-cut diamond, which sits on a micro pave diamond-and-platinum band.

A spokesperson for Rodkin tells People the ring is totally unique. “It’s one of a kind, like all of her pieces. Steven has been a client of Loree’s for many years, and often wears rings by her, as well as other jewelry.”

The two have been dating since 2006. It will be Tyler’s third time down the aisle: he was married twice before, to Cyrinda Foxe in 1978, and clothing designer Teresa Barrick in 1988.

Check out more details and a photo at People here.

Van Halen rehearsal update



Van Halen have been hard at work gearing up for their forthcoming world tour in support of their new album, due February 7.

VH will announce the first wave of shows on January 3, with tickets going on sale on January 10.

The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood have updated their website with some VH news:

“For the past 2 months VAN HALEN has been rehearsing here 2-3 times a week!!!!!!

Do you have any idea how hard that was to not tell you?? When you come in at 10:00AM and David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and Wolfgang Van Halen are on stage with 3 other people in the room playing “Running With The Devil” and you can’t say anything?! It’s tough, to put it simply.

It all began with a 3 day video shoot for their newest single that you don’t know about yet (shhh) and we were all geeking out like never before. Little did we know, the guys had fallen in love with the room and decided to rehearse for their upcoming unannounced tour for the next 2 months!

We couldn’t film it for obvious reasons, so we’ve decided to share some of our favorite VH moments that happened for the next 2 months.

“My favorite Van Halen moment was when I came out of the kitchen and they were doing Panama. I was one of the only people standing in the room by the stage. David Lee Roth looked at me, smiled, and waved. I thought to myself “that is the only time in life I will know David Lee Roth was actually singing to me.” – @LizzyDStadler

“It was so nice being at my desk listening to “Jump” & “Panama”, the songs I grew up with by the actual Van Halen. I mean, really – it’s the actually f**king Van Halen!” – Tina

“Watching David Lee Roth film the opening part of this video was one of the most awesome things. He was standing there smiling with a gigantic grin on his face for at least 5 minutes and HeKo & I were standing off to the side trying not to laugh (or get in the shot), but it was incredible. The week they finally brought in the synthesizers and played the opening to “Jump” over & over made it really difficult to not jump out of my seat accordingly with the song. JUMP!” – @toneyeah

“What was my favorite part about it? Everything. I know it sounds stupid, but I can’t put it any other way. To walk through the club and have Eddie Van Halen smile at me or pat me on the back, the guys were so nice, it was unbelievable. In my 9 years at the club, this is by far one of the best things that’s happened.” – Scotty

“The positive energy VH brought to the daytime was fantastic. During the day, it’s always so quiet and work, work, work and even when a band does rehearse, it’s always so serious. Van Halen was having fun the entire time and we could feel it throughout the building.” @Heko310

“I just loved the first time they played “Running With The Devil” it sounded exactly like it did when I was working box office at The Whisky.” – Kathy
