Post Guitar Hero Van Halen

According to a posting on the Van Halen News Desk web site, the Guitar Hero: Van Halen video game will be made available in November/December. An exact release date has not yet been announced.

A spokesperson for Activision recently confirmed that Guitar Hero: Van Halen will not include ex-bassist Michael Anthony or former singer Sammy Hagar, according to Questions about whether they would be featured arose when the game was previewed at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles and only members of the current lineup — which includes original vocalist David Lee Roth and teenage bassist Wolfgang Van Halen — appeared in both a trailer and selected song clips.

The spokesperson confirmed that only guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen, Wolfgang — who is Eddie's son — and Roth show up in the game.

While the spokesperson could not say whether any songs from Hagar's four albums with the group would be part of the game, it doesn't seem likely. The trailer and clips shown at E3 only focused on Roth-era tracks like "Jump", "Panama", "Hot For Teacher" and "Little Guitars".

A game about Van Halen that doesn't have Michael Anthony?... I've always thought he sucks, but he was in VH forever. He should be in there.

Michael Anthony should totally be in this, his back up vocals were so important to the Van Halen sound. Too bad the rest of Van Halen doesn't seem to be on good terms with Sammy and Michael.
