Spokesperson: VAN HALEN Will Not Be The Next 'Rock Star' Band

MTV News has issued the following statement regarding the reports that VAN HALEN may audition potential singers in a possible second season of the reality television series "Rock Star":

"VAN HALEN will not be taking INXS' lead by participating in a possible second season of the reality television series 'Rock Star', according to the band's spokesperson.

"MTV News erroneously reported Wednesday [Oct. 19] that a source close to the program claimed that if 'Rock Star' does return for a second season, that the core VAN HALEN trio — Michael Anthony and brothers Alex and Eddie Van Halen — would be the band auditioning potential singers. The band flatly denies any involvement in the show.

"MTV News had also previously reported that a spokesperson for VAN HALEN said the band had no comment regarding pending projects. However, that spokesperson was never asked specific questions regarding the group's hypothetical involvement with the 'Rock Star' show; MTV News regrets the oversight.

"VAN HALEN had been the subject of recent speculation concerning potential 'Rock Star' second-season bands. The same rumors swirled about ALICE IN CHAINS, but a spokesperson for guitarist Jerry Cantrell scoffed at the notion the band would even consider appearing on the show."
