2012 Winners and Losers in music so far: Madonna, Adele, Lana Del Rey
How are Chris Brown, Jack White, Black Sabbath, Carly Rae Jepsen and Bieber faring?
Draw: Van Halen
On the plus side, The Van Halen brothers Eddie and Alex reunited with singer David Lee Roth for “A Different Kind of Truth,” their first full studio album together since 1984. On the minus side: their well-received arena tour seemed to be going fine until the band postponed and ultimately canceled the last 30 dates seemingly over a lack of stamina. Next time, maybe Red Bull or 5 Hour Energy Drink should be the tour sponsor.
