David Lee Roth says he doesn’t know if Van Halen will ever tour again

Van Halen’s singer David Lee Roth said that he doesn’t know if  Eddie Van Halen will ever tour again when asked by The New York Times. The musician talked with the newspaper about art, music and his career. Since last year there are many rumours about Eddie’s health, TMZ even stated that he was battling throat cancer.


David Lee Roth said about if Eddie Van Halen would tour again:

“I don’t know that Eddie is ever really going to rally for the rigors of the road again. I don’t even want to say I’ve waited — I’ve supported for five years. Because what I do is physical as well as musical and spiritual — you can’t take five years off from the ring. But I did. And I do not regret a second of it. He’s a band mate. We had a colleague down. And he’s down now for enough time that I don’t know that he’s going to be coming back out on the road. You want to hear the classics? You’re talking to him.”

Name change

Van Halen‘s frontman David Lee Roth said he had changed his stage name. Now, as announced by the singer himself, he introduces himself as David L. Roth or just El Roth.

The news was revealed in one of his paintings, released on Twitter last in June 22. The art was inspired by the crisis caused by the pandemic of the new coronavirus and protests against police violence and racism motivated after the assassination of George Floyd by a white policeman in the United States.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
