Not that they need a distraction from all the carping between them and David Lee Roth, but the members of Van Halen and Warner Bros. Records have come up with a unique promotion for the album "Van Halen's Greatest Hits Vol. 1," due Oct. 22. Of the initial pressing, 500 CDs will be personally autographed by Eddie Van Halen, while 10,000 others will include a Van Halen "collectors" guitar pick.
Furthermore, recalling the gold candy bar of Roald Dahl's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," one lucky fan will find contained with the CD a grand prize certificate good for one of Eddie Van Halen's custom Wolfgang guitars, autographed by the musician. The CDs will be distributed randomly around the U.S.
