Is David Lee Roth really 69?

David Lee Roth shared a video of himself dancing to Busy Signal’s Balloon, and I can’t believe he is 69.

Who knew he had moves like that? He needs a song like Moves Like Jagger because that is how awesome they are.

Too bad he didn’t do more of that when he was performing with Van Halen.


Would you see a Van Halen tribute tour with David Lee Roth and Joe Satriani?

David Lee Roth is ready to hit the road again, and he wants to do it with Van Halen. However, without the late Eddie Van Halen, how does he do that?

There are rumors he wants to do a tribute tour with Alex Van Halen and Joe Satriani, according to Louder.

I get that Satriani is a legendary guitarist, but he is no EVH. I think the only one who could fill in for Eddie would be Slash.

So, I ask you, would you see that lineup if they came to a city near you?


How does Wolf Van Halen about Kylie Jenner’s son no longer being called Wolf?

Kylie Jenner named her son Wolf when he was born about a month ago, but she announced this week that they changed his name because it didn’t fit him.

As soon as Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli’s son, Wolf, heard about the change, he had the best reaction to the news. The bassist wrote, “THANK F*CK.” Rock on!

You know his dad is looking down on him from heaven with pride, and telling Jimi Hendix and Michael Jackson, “that’s my son!”


Doesn’t look like David Lee Roth is ready to Jump into retirement

Earlier this month, David Lee Roth told The Las Vegas Review-Journal that he was “throwing in the shoes” after his 5-date residency in Las Vegas. The 67-year-old singer claimed to them, “my doctors, my handlers, compelled me to really address that every time I go onstage, I endanger that future.” It is a future he didn’t think he would have when he was younger. Diamond Dave thought he would go before his bandmate Eddie Van Halen, who passed away a year ago this week.

With a statement like that, you would think that this would be his final curtain call. However, the poster for those shows reads, “The Last Tour. Unless It Isn’t.”

That is why I never trust anyone when they say this is my last tour. Didn’t Cher say that? The Police? The Cure? Barbra Streisand? The Who? Mötley Crüe? And some of them are still touring.

So unless they are dead and buried like Michael Jackson, who died before his comeback, I never believe the fat lady sang until I hear her do it at their funeral.

Sh!t, even then, it might not be over because of this thing called holograms. I still can’t believe pay to see that.

Anyways, back to Roth. Tickets are available for his five “final” concerts at the Hard Rock in Vegas on December 31st, January 1st, 5th, 7th, and 8th here.


RIP Eddie Van Halen
October 6th, 2020 under Obits, Van Halen. [ Comments: none ]

Eddie Van Halen lost his battle with throat cancer today at the age of 65. His son, Wolfgang, broke the news on Twitter. “I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning.

“He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift.

“My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss.

“I love you so much, Pop.”

Eddie was known as a Guitar Gd for the strumming he did with the band he founded. Van Halen got their start in 1972, but they would not release their debut album until 1978. While the band had some commercial success with their first five albums, their sixth album launched them into superstardom. 1984, garnered them several hits including Jump, Panama, and Hot for Teacher.

After the global success of that album, they lost their lead singer, David Lee Roth, and gained a new one with Sammy Hagar. Crazy, right? So crazy, they named their first album together 5150. That CD and singer gave them a few more hits with Why Can’t This Be Love and Dreams.

Eventually, they lost Hagar and reunited with Roth. They had a few reunion tours, with Eddie’s only son Wolfgang playing bass, but have not toured in a while.

Along with Van Halen, he had several guitar solos with other artists. You can hear his magic fingers on Michael Jackson’s Beat It. After listening to Van Halen’s 1978 instrumental song Eruption, you can understand why people wanted to riff with him.

Van Halen has been dealing with cancer on and off since 2000.

Today, let’s rock out to Van Halen and keep Eddie’s vivacious spirit alive.
