In a recent interview on a radio podcast (Talkin’ Rock With Melton) out of Detroits WRIF, David Lee Roth gave his thoughts on Van Halen. After being asked if he was disappointed he didn’t get to go on tour, as rumors had it, this last summer he responded:

“That’s been canceled a number of times, and I think Van Halen’s finished and this is the next phase. I’ve inherited the band de facto, whatever that means. I think it means if you inherit it, carry this proudly. Van Halen isn’t gonna be coming back in the fashion that you know. And that being said, Eddie’s got his own story to tell. It’s not mine to tell it.”

It’s no secret that Roth has had an on and off relationship with Van Halen and at this point, a tour together doesn’t look likely. On top of that Roth seems to be busy with other ventures such as his podcast and everything else. Who knows.
