David Lee Roth kicked off the first night of his Las Vegas residency this week and said one of the reasons he’s doing it is because he doesn’t think the potential for a Van Halen reunion is very good.
In an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Roth said, “Ed’s (Eddie Van Halen) not doing well, and singing and dancing is a perishable skill. If you have the capacity, it’s something that has to be used routinely, if not for the thrill of it and the magic of creating with other incandescent spirits.”
Roth also, added that he’s not waiting around for the Van Halen brothers and wants to perform as much as he can while he still can.
His Vegas shows run through March and then he’ll be opening some dates for KISS later this spring.
