Eddie Van Halen and LL Cool J Collaboration
It appears that guitar master Eddie Van Halen will make a guest appearance on rapper LL Cool J's upcoming album Authentic. Eddie posted a picture on Twitter of him and LL Cool J sitting infront of a mixing console, with the simple message "Authentic 4.30.13." It is not yet known what track Eddie Van Halen will be playing on. Other guest artists include Tom Morello, and Travis Barker, who both guest on the track "Whaddup." This would not be Eddie Van Halen's first cross-over appearance, having played the guitar solo on Michael Jackson's classic hit "Beat It."
In related news, Van Halen manager Irving Azoff has denied that there was any truth to the comments made by David Lee Roth on the Opie & Anthony Radio Show regarding a possible European tour for Van Halen later this year.
