However, when questioned again on a report attributed to sources that the mystery band in the next installment of the CBS summer reality show is indeed Van Halen, the official response from publicist Larry Solters was: "I'm not denying it. I'm not going to answer any questions about it."
INXS found its new vocalist, J.D. Fortune, during "Rock Star's" inaugural run last year. The band has come back from obscurity with a hit album and sold-out tour, TMZ.com noted.
Neither producer Mark Burnett nor CBS would comment on the Van Halen buzz.
