VAN HALEN Singer's New 'The Roth Show' Episode Features Jazz, Big Band And Blues
February 23, 2016
David Lee Roth has posted a new episode of his online series "The Roth Show". The 23-minute clip, which can be seen below, features the VAN HALEN frontman playing a lot of different styles of music, including jazz with Portuguese lyrics and a mellow blues tune.
In a 2013 interview, Roth explained that "The Roth Show" started off as an experiment. "You can prop something up with your famous name for a day or two," he said. "But does it really hold water? Let's see if a new idea really has a chance. Inside a matter of weeks, it really caught fire."
The final show of VAN HALEN's U.S. tour took place on October 4, 2015 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.
The trek was VAN HALEN's first since an aborted North American run three years earlier in support of its then-new studio album, "A Different Kind Of Truth".
Out now is "Tokyo Dome In Concert", VAN HALEN's first-ever live collection featuring Roth, despite numerous pro-shot concerts from the band's original heyday being heavily booted for years.
