Van Halen to Be Subject of Uncensored Howard Stern Special
Interviews from nearly every member of Van Halen will be included amongst the five hours of airtime Howard Stern is dedicating to the tumultuous history of the band. This Tuesday (Feb. 7) Stern will air ‘The Whole Truth: The Howard Stern/Van Halen Special’ on Sirius/XM Radio.
The special runs on the same day Van Halen is releasing their first new album with David Lee Roth since 1984. According to the Van Halen News Desk, Stern has compiled interviews he’s conducted with both Van Halen brothers, former bassist Michael Anthony, David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar and Gary Cherone.
A promo promises a look “deep inside the Stern show vault … the good, the bad and of course the ugly.” It’s a five hour long history of the band, that begins at 2PM ET on Howard 101. No new music from ‘A Different Kind of Truth‘ will be played during the satellite radio broadcast.
The rockers have performed a number of the songs live in recent weeks, and previews for many others have been released online. Van Halen will kick of an American tour on Feb. 18 in Louisville, Ky. See below for a chance to win tickets to a show this spring.
In other Stern news, as a commercial which aired during last night’s Super Bowl explains, he’ll soon be a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent.’
