David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen & Wolfgang Van Halen have reunited to bring you a new album, available today Feb 7, with a nostalgic ”Atomic Punk” feel to it. “A Different Kind of Truth” has biting guitar playing, signature DLR vocals and that “in the distance” ever-present crash cymbal washing over the tracks ala their late 70′s/early 80′s recordings. To commemorate their release, GuitarTV, Warner Music Group & Rhino Records are giving away the entire Van Halen CD catalogue to one lucky winner who answers this question:

 

What was the name of Eddie Van Halen’s band before forming “Van Halen” and who did they rent their PA from?

 

A random person who answers correctly in the comments secton below correctly will win the entire back catalogue through Warner Music & Rhino Records. If you are not registered, you must visit this link to comment.
