The rumors that Van Halen
would release a new song called "Late Term
" this week seem to be false. A song has appeared online under that name via a YouTube video but it's actually the track "Counter-Blast
" from David Lee Roth
's 1998 "DLR Band
The offending fake video can be viewed here
, although the uploader has disabled comments so it's pretty hard for YouTube commenters to call them out on their subterfuge.
Still, the video draws attention to one of DLR's lesser-known, but quite rocking, albums, featuring a young John Lowery
that's John 5
of Marilyn Manson
and Rob Zombie
to you and I on lead guitar.
In 2010, John 5 discussed the album with IHeartGuitarBlog.com
: "We recorded and mixed it and everything in two weeks. And it was all done at like 6 o'clock in the morning! I was playing with Rob Halford too, so we would rehearse at noon, and Dave would want to be before Rob Halford, so we would rehearse at six in the morning. True story!
Thanks for the report to Peter Hodgson
