Gary Cherone, the main vocalist of Extreme, recently made an interview on A Radio Rock where he verified the existence of certain unheard Van Halen songs from his tenure in the group and stated that Alex Van Halen will decide whether or not to release them.

The leader of Van Halen recalled his three years with the band and elucidated:

“After the ‘VH III’ and then we toured, we went back in the studio, and we wrote a bunch of songs. Some of them are just rough demos; some of them were more finished products. As far as if they ever see the light of day, I don’t know, maybe someday. Alex Van Halen is the boss of that, but you never know. But I can say some of those songs are really good.”

Following Michael Anthony’s revelations regarding the unheard Van Halen music in an interview with Eddie Trunk in April, Cherone made his remarks. He said that they had a ton of material in their archive, and that they had started the process of locating it. Anthony disclosed:

“There is a plan. We’re starting a bunch of the reissue stuff with the Sammy [Hagar] years, with all his albums, and the first one that will come out will be the ‘Right Here, Right Now’ live album that we did in 1992… So there is movement in there. We’re digging back into stuff. There’s a lot more stuff at Ed’s 5150 studio; Wolfie or Alex will start going through stuff there and see what there is. There’s a ton of stuff.”
