(Best Syndication) One of the biggest rock bands in the 1970’s and 80’s, Van Halen is planning a comeback tour with David Lee Roth returning to provide the vocals. Van Halen ranks number 19 on the list of top selling artists of all time, having sold more than 56 million albums in the U.S (See Videos Below). They are only one if five rock groups to have sold more than 10 million copies of two albums.

Roth, the original vocal, told a press conference "This is not a reunion—this is a new band." He was the first of three vocals and left the band in 1985 after tensions rose between Roth and Eddie Van Halen. It was reported that Roth wanted to add keyboards, synthesizers, and power ballads into the group's music. It was Roth who persuaded Eddie and his brother Alex to change the name of the band from Mammoth to Van Halen in the mid 70s.

"I've done more rehearsal in the last four months than I've done in the past 20 summers," Roth said Monday. "The whole sound is better than it has ever been”.

The group was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 12, 2007. Now the band is slated to begin their comeback tour in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 27th.

Eddie seems to be happy with the reunion. "It's the s--t, that's all I can say," Eddie said. "It's better than it's ever been," he added while sharing a hug for the cameras with Roth.

The band was planning on touring earlier this summer, but because Eddie had to attend alcohol rehabilitation, the date was pushed back. Eddie’s 16 year old son, Wolfgang, has been practicing with the band and is expected to replace their long-time bass player.

The band’s bassist, Michael Anthony will not be touring this year. "Michael Anthony is part of this band's history...Meet us in the future, not the pasture," Roth said. "I'm shocked that any of us are still vertical" after all these years. When asked about the band’s current sound, Roth said, "it's young, it's skinny and it's f--king amazing."
