On a more serious note, and also courtesy of the Van Halen News Desk, guitar legend Eddie Van Halen will guest on one track on LL COOL J’s upcoming album, Authentic, due out on April 30th.
LL Cool J revealed this at a concert he’s performing in SXSW (the annual South by Southwest festival held in Texas). He announced that his album features several musical guests, including Eddie Van Halen (specifically on track 12). Other guests mentioned were TOM MORELLO and SNOOP DOGG.
The VHND adds: “A tracklist for the album was released last month that lists track 12 as titled ‘Getting Paper’, however, that track list might be outdated. In any case, it shouldn’t be long before more info on the track featuring Eddie becomes available.”
