Word late last night was that a new lead singer for Van Halen was announced yesterday:


That's right. Sam the Man. Supposedly he went on the show and told everyone that he'd been in the studio working on a VH greatest hits CD and that the group is planning a tour.

Then Rolling Stone had the news on its Web site. They say there are 28 North American dates planned.

Now if they can just do it and get underway before Eddie gets a bug up his ass again...
