Boasting one of rock’s most charismatic frontmen and a guitar virtuoso who virtually revolutionised the way in which the instrument was played, Van Halen became America’s ultimate showmen during the early MTV era. Formed by axeman Eddie Van Halen, his drummer brother Alex and lead singer David Lee Roth in 1974, the group honed their craft on the California scene before Kiss’ Gene Simmons paid for them to record a demo which led to a deal with Warner Bros. in 1977. Their self-titled debut album arrived a year later, going on to sell six million copies, and the band continued to build up their fan base with 1979’s Van Halen II, 1980’s Women and Children First, and 1981’s Fair Warning. But it was with their sixth studio effort, 1984, that turned the group into superstars, spawning a number one single with the synth-led “Jump” and shifting ten million copies in the US alone. Following various behind-the-scenes troubles, Roth was fired from the band in 1985 and replaced by Montrose vocalist Sammy Hagar, who immediately proved he was more than a match for his predecessor when 1986’s 5150 kick-started a run of four consecutive chart-topping entries on the Billboard 200. Following 1988’s OU812, 1991’s For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge and 1995’s Balance, the group faced further upheaval when Hagar left over creative differences. Lee Roth briefly rejoined the fold to record two songs for a 1996 Greatest Hits collection, before former Extreme frontman Gary Cherone was announced as a permanent replacement. His first and only record with the band, 1998’s Van Halen III, peaked at number three in the US but proved to be the lowest-selling of their career, and Cherone was promptly sacked. A departure from their Warner Bros label and Eddie Van Halen’s battle with cancer kept the group out of action for several years, but they finally returned in 2007, with Roth back on board, for an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and a lucrative world tour which grossed nearly $100 million. Buoyed by the positive response to their comeback, the group entered the studio to record their first new album in 14 years, A Different Kind of Truth, which peaked at number two in the US in 2012. Its accompanying tour was documented with a live album recorded at the Tokyo Dome in 2013, while after passing their half-century mark in 2014, the group headed out another major North American trek.
