As VanHalen close out the string of dates before the famouspostponement of the rest of their tour, this month's iGuitarMagazine cover star EddieVan Halen has moved to reassure fans that it was, as hadbeen  reported, simply a matter of the band being tired. In a newinterview, the guitarist, and his son Wolfgang invited CNN into their home to quash any rumoursand give fans a peek into Eddie's famous 5150 home studio, wherethey invited cameras into drum room, the guitar room and the tapevault, which is filled with boxes of demos.

The band have considered recording another new album and, aswith ' A Different Kind of Truth,' this room filled with oldrecordings and demos may just provide the inspiration for thesessions.

"I always kind of thought that it was just easier to write a newsong than [dig through all the old ones]," Eddie said. "But there'sa lot of music up there that's waiting to be heard."

 The duo also insisted that there were no conflicts withlead singer DavidLee Roth. "He's hilarious," Wolfgang continued. "We watch himon stag. He makes us crack up all the time."
