Earlier this week, Van Halen abruptly postponed a whole series of dates in their reunion tour because, as one anonymous source told Rolling Stone, the band members are "arguing like mad" and "hate each other." But a different inside source told the Hollywood Reporter yesterday that "they're simply burned out." They've already played 50 shows, the source added, and just "need a breather."
