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.
“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.”
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.
