The vocalist David Lee Roth reunited with Van Halen from 2006 to 2015 when they made the band’s final concert and during those years the band recorded their final album “A Different Kind of Truth” released in 2012. However, that record is not available on the streaming platforms and Wolfgang Van Halen, the son of Eddie Van Halen, who also was the band’s bassist on their final tour, said that David Lee Roth doesn’t like that album and is blocking its release on streaming.
The leader of Mammoth WVH talked about that in an interview with Eddie Trunk (Transcribed by Blabbermouth).
Wolfgang Van Halen says David Lee Roth is preventing VH’s final album to be on streaming
“The contract ran out on putting it up on streaming services. So we’ve been working on getting it back, but there are some people involved who do not like that record and are not making it easy to get it back up.”
Asked if the person is known by three initials, Wolfgang confirmed. “Yeah. Probably. I mean, yeah, you can put it together. I hate to say it, because people will think I’m making stuff up, but it’s, like, man, I’d love to have the record back up there, but he doesn’t like it and he’s not working with us to get it back up there. So I hope people who like it have a physical version of it. (Laughs)”
He was then asked if he has any kind of relationship with David Lee Roth and he replied: “No, I don’t. I think that’s why I’m having such a wonderful time with Mammoth. I think throughout my time in Van Halen, you learn things that you wanna do and you wanna apply, and then you also learn things that you don’t wanna apply.”
“And I think that’s why I’ve been so excited to do Mammtoh and to have something from its inception be something pure where you can talk about things and there’s not really any big challenges other than weathering the storm together instead of the storm being dealing with each other. You know what I’m saying?” Wolfgang Van Halen said.
