Van Halen top the hennemusic Hot 10 this week.
The #1 story sees Van Halen’s label rep at Warner Music in the band’s early years blaming Valerie Bertinelli for the group’s 1985 split with singer David Lee Roth.
In a new interview with LA Weekly, former Warner Music artist development director Ted Cohen says the arrival of Bertinelli on the scene in 1980 began to drive a wedge between the members of the group, Yoko Ono–style.
