Rolling Stone say

Most of the tour is promoted by Live Nation, whose reps wouldn't comment. The band's rep also had no comment. A source with knowledge of the tour tells Rolling Stone that Van Halen's members "hate each other." Adds the source, "The band is arguing like mad. They are fighting."

News of the postponed tour dates surprised several arena reps, who are featuring upcoming Van Halen shows prominently on their websites. "You want to know the absolute fuckin' truth? I have no fuckin' idea," another concert-business source with knowledge of the tour tells Rolling Stone.

Adam Nolly Getgood: Alnico Black Hawk 7

Alnico Black Hawk 7 test (DI's and backing track included in description)

This is a brief test with a custom Alnico V Black Hawk 7 bridge pickup installed into my Dæmoness 7-string. It's pretty much the purriest pickup I've ever heard! I'm planning on repeating the same clip with a ceramic Black Hawk 7 to compare the two magnet types.

This zip file contains the guitar DIs, along with a drum and bass backing track so you can evaluate the pickups through your own rig of choice and hear them in context. I will do the same for the ceramic Black Hawk in the near future:
