Van Halen swept top honors in the 2014 hennemusic Rock News Awards, the daily rock music news site announced Thursday.
The California rockers earned their fourth straight title as Rock News Artist Of The Year and picked up their third victory with the Rock News Story Of The Year.
Van Halen were the most read-about artist in both hennemusic categories, which are determined by music fans: numbers are based on the combined total page views of the top 50 hennemusic rock news stories of the past twelve months.
The Top 10 in both categories were counted down over the past two weeks.
“Van Halen continue to be a priority for hennemusic readers, even though they were off the road in 2014,” says Bruce Henne. “Fans await word on new music while upgraded vintage live footage shows there remains huge interest in the band’s original, classic era.”
A daily rock music news service dedicated to providing fans with an accurate, timely and reliable source for music news, hennemusic serves as a trusted source for rock fans who need updated information on their favorite artists and events.
hennemusic will celebrate its 5th anniversary on February 1.
