David Lee Roth Guests on the Marc Maron Podcast, Chats About Current State of Van Halen

Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth appeared as a guest this week on Marc Maron’s “WTF Podcast”. In a great and wide-ranging interview, Roth weighed in on many topics including the current state of affairs between himself and Eddie and Alex Van Halen. Notably, Roth commented that the band has “always hated each other” and rarely gotten along, even in the best of times. He expanded this by discussing the dynamic of the three leaders of the band, both historically before they worked together, right up to their very last tour together. He also mentioned recently performing a remix of ‘Jump’ at Pinkpop Festival with Armin Van Buren, and many stories from his life. Listen to the podcast below and read some quotes we transcribed. There has been much speculation that Van Halen would announce full reunion with bassist Michael Anthony to perform at festivals or tour dates this summer, but a published report revealed it was called off.Continue reading
