van halen Biography

Van Halen, the American rock band, was formed in 1972 in Pasadena, California. Ever since the band released their self-titled debut album in 1978, they have enjoyed great success. Van Halen as of 2007 had sold 80 million worldwide albums and holds the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart's record for number one hits. During the 1980s Van Halen had the most hits on Billboard's Hot 100 chart than any other heavy metal or hard rock band.

Van Halen, according to RIAA, has sold more than 56 million U.S. albums and is the all time 19th top selling band. They are one of just five rock bands to have two albums that have old over 10 million U.S. copies. The RIAA certified Van Halen's debut album diamond in 1999 for selling ten million U.S. copies.

In addition to Van Halen being known for their great musical success, they are also well known due to the surrounding drama regarding their former members. Both lead singers Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth have made multiple exits from the band which has resulted in mass media coverage and controversy, including contrasting press statements coming from the band and former singers.

After Van Halen's concert tour in 2004, the band went on hiatus until September 2006. Wolfgang Van Halen took over as the new bassist and reunion rumors with Roth started to resurface. Van Halen became a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2007. Van Halen started to tour across North America with Roth, following years of speculation, in 2007 and into 2008. A press release was issued by Warner Bros. Records in August 2010 that indicated that a new album as well as tour would be forthcoming in 2011.
