Former Van Halen Singer Praises New Album

(hennemusic) Two former Van Halen singers have been sharing their opinions on the band's new album, "A Different Kind Of Truth," with opposite results.

Now with Chickenfoot, Sammy Hagar has been slamming every aspect of the group's efforts to move forward without him, seemingly still reeling and angered over his 1996 and 2004 splits with the Van Halen brothers.

At the other end of the spectrum is Gary Cherone, of both Extreme and Hurtsmile, who recorded 1998's "Van Halen III" with the group and performed on tour with them. "This record, for me, it's the best thing since 'Fair Warning,'" Cherone tells the Boston Phoenix. "[First single] 'Tattoo' is the only misstep. You wait 28 years to hear Van Halen, and in the context of the record, it's not the best song by far. Off the top of my head, I'm thinkin' of 'China Town,' if that was the first thing you heard, or 'As Is,' or 'Honeybabysweetiedoll.' Any of those three? People would've been like, 'Are you f**ing kidding me?' " He has more to say here.
