TIMELINE

Van Halenbutton.gif (123 bytes) Van Halen has spanned 3 decades with their form of rock and heavy metal music, always making news and selling millions - even with a changing roster of lead singers. When Van Halen formed the band consisted of Eddie Van Halen on guitar, keyboards, and vocals, Alex Van Halen on drums and percussion, Michael Anthony on bass and vocals, and David Lee Roth on lead vocals. The conception of Van Halen began in Holland with the conception of the Van Halen brothers (the brothers grew up in California), and in the mid-70s the brothers formed a band named Mammoth with Anthony and Roth. In the late 70s, the band renamed themselves Van Halen, were flown to New York to record a demo produced by Gene Simmons of Kiss, and were signed by Warner Bros. Records.
