VAN HALEN III or VAN EXTREME?


Van Halen III is the 11th studio full-lenght by Van Halen, out from March 17, 1998, through  Warner Bros Records.

Produced by Mike Post and Eddie Van Halen, it's the one and only studio album with Gary Cherone as singer and the last with Michael Anthony.

They worked  on a follow-up with Cherone in 1999 with no results. The album's title refers to the fact that it was Van Halen's third recorded line-up, and the band's first two albums having been titled Van Halen I and II.  The album is known for its minimal job of Michael Anthony on bass. 

Anthony played bass on three songs on the album; "Without You", "One I Want" & "Fire In The Hole" while Eddie Van Halen recorded bass for the rest. The album cover is a still picture from stock footage of Frank "Cannonball" Richards.
