Finalists for the 3rd annual hennemusic Rock News Awards are chosen by readers: winners are determined by the combined total page views of the top 50 hennemusic rock news stories of the past twelve months.
Rock News Story of The Year - #1 – VAN HALEN
Van Halen returned in 2012 with “A Different Kind Of Truth,” their first new album with original lead singer David Lee Roth since 1984.
Re-introducing themselves to the media with a rare, intimate club show at New York’s Café Wha? in early January, the Van Halen buzz was in overdrive as the group prepared to issue the first single from the project.
hennemusic helped preview “Tattoo” for music fans in advance of the single’s official release.
