Chart Attack spoke with Gary Cherone about his gigantic failure as a Van Halen frontman, which he hopes to recover from with a new band, Tribe Of Judah, and a new record, called ‘Exit Elvis’. Cherone explained why the VH project failed saying he and Eddie Van Halen got along too well. “What was great about the Van Halen thing — which in hindsight probably led to why it wasn’t a successful record — it was that me and Eddie hit it off and we were writing and we really didn’t write a Van Halen record,” Cherone says. “It was just like when Sammy joined the band, it became the new Van Halen. And that was pure; the art of that was pure. I think we ran into trouble when the record was done and it wasn’t the preconceived Van Halen record that everybody thought was going to happen.” Chartattack.com has since removed the article.
