A new album, the first studio effort with David Lee Roth since 1984, is believed to be nearly finished with the hope that it can be released in 2012. Van Halen also has been expected to make a "special announcement" on November 30 during the Grammy Awards nominations concert, which will air live on CBS.

  • Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant held a press conference in Los Angeles to announce the launch of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program

    Roger Daltrey and Robert Plant held a press conference in Los Angeles to announce the launch of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program. The program hopes to change a medical culture that categorizes patients as either adults or children, with few special considerations for teens. The announcement follows more than a decade of support by The Who and other musicians for England's Teenage Cancer Trust, which has established 19 cancer units for teenagers across the U.K. The U.S. version will be housed at UCLA Medical Center and will treat teens separately from young children and adults to focus on special concerns for teens who have cancer. Pete Townshend was not at the press conference because of an expired visa that kept him in England, but he sent a videotaped statement saying: "Let's hope in the USA it can catch fire the way it did here, because it does save lives."
