Gary Cherone Tells Van Halen Secret
Anticipation exploded when Roth walked on with his former bandmates at the MTV Music Video Awards, telling an excited crowd: "This is the first time we've stood on stage together in over ten years."
Many believed Van Halen and Roth were about to get back together – but Cherone knew better."I got on the phone with Eddie Van Halen a few times and we wrote a song over the telephone. I flew out for the weekend and we just hit it off. We started writing the moment I got off the plane and he actually asked me to join the second day I was there," He tells Rolling Stone. "I remember one morning getting up to go to the studio, and no one told me all this press was interviewing the Van Halen guys because of the Video Music Awards. They told me, 'Gary, no one knows you're in the band'. I remember bumping into a photographer who knew me from Extreme – he goes, 'What are you doing here?' I go, 'Nothing'." More on this here.
