David Lee Roth has filed a lawsuit against his ex-Van Halen bandmates, accusing them of conspiring to keep money from him. The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges that Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony diverted royalties and breached their fiduciary duty to Roth. The singer claims the band signed a Warner Bros. deal in 1996 without his knowledge or authorization for increased royalties from album sales.

Like a lot of fans, Sammy Hagar winced when he heard Monday that he and old rival David Lee Roth would both be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March with Van Halen. "This could be a complete and total disaster. It could be wonderful too. It really could. But it also could be such a disaster and an embarrassment that it goes down in history." Roth was the voice of Van Halen from its mid-'70s Sunset Strip days up into the monster success of the 1980s.

Van Halen is suing the Baltimore Orioles for at least $2 million, saying the baseball team reneged on a deal for a stadium concert featuring the rock band. The Orioles approached Van Halen about performing Sept. 2 at the team's Camden Yards, then backed out of the deal, according to the lawsuit. The action seeks damages for opportunities the band said it lost after rearranging its schedule. The Orioles had no comment.

Will Van Halen give up the rock 'n' roll party for a political party? It hasn't quite reached that point, but the perennially popular Los Angeles hard-rock band is suddenly caught up with the ACLU and citizen petition drives in the wake of two recent incidents involving Van Halen fans. In Fort Smith, Ark., a 19-year-old man was arrested April 9 for wearing a T-shirt bearing the name of Van Halen's current album, "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge."

If you see David Lee Roth this week, don't mention the V-word. Van Halen returns this Friday as the titular brothers, guitarist Eddie and drummer Alex, join bassist Michael Anthony and lead singer Sammy Hagar -- not Roth -- on stage in Greensboro, N.C., for the start of a summer tour that will wind its way toward Southern California with an Aug. 16 show at the Arrowhead Pond and the tour's finale, a hometown show at Staples Center on Aug. 19.
