DAVID LEE ROTH Talks Upcoming Las Vegas Residency, Possibility Of Working With VAN HALEN Again
September 15, 2019, a month ago
David Lee Roth spoke exclusively with Van Halen News Desk about his upcoming Las Vegas residency. Following is an excerpt from the interview, with Roth commenting on the possibility of workig with his Van Halen bandmates again after four years of nothing.
Roth: "Four summers have gone by, and for a singer, that's paralyzing. Like a boxer, or a tap dancer, I am dependent upon my whole rig. My whole body. Perhaps playing a guitar, or piano, for example, with your hands, is a bit more forgiving over the years. If you come watch me now, I'm 65 going on 23. If you saw my X-rays, I'm 65 going on 80 (laughs). I've paid a price for the time off, frankly. Enough said there. I hope the best for the fellas, but I don't know what's coming up with Van Halen. It's time for me to use whatever talents and skills that I have. I'm bettin' the rent on it."
