Eddie Van Halen released an awesome and bizarre photo on his Instagram today to celebrate summer. Van Halen has been quite reclusive in recent years, with popular SiriusXM radio host Eddie Trunk speculating about his health.
Van Halen wrote, “Happy first day of summer! Hoping the sun comes out one day soon. #summer #summer2019 #june #junegloom #california #losangeles #music.”
Michael Anthony recently claimed that he was in talks for a Van Halen reunion tour, and that if things had gone to plan, the reunited original lineup would be rehearsing right now for their first tour in 35 years.
Anthony claimed that he spoke to Van Halen manager Irving Azoff last year, and that David Lee Roth’s manager called him in January. David Lee Roth teased summer stadium shows in December with the original lineup, hinting at big names like Foo Fighters and Metallica joining them for somewhat of a celebration.
Wolfgang Van Halen was rumored to have a new solo album ready to go in an advertisement for a television appearance on the Food Network with his mother Valerie Bertinelli, as a celebration of his new album, but he appeared on the show earlier this month with no discussion of his solo career or plans. Many fans have speculated that Wolfgang Van Halen could open for Van Halen on a reunion tour, especially if Michael Anthony returns on bass. David Lee Roth recently stated that he would be meeting with Van Halen soon.
