WOLFGANG VAN HALEN Fills In On Vocals For DAVID LEE ROTHMay 2, 2012
According to The Pulse Of Radio, footage has surfaced online of the members of VAN HALEN doing their soundcheck before playing at Madison Square Garden this past February, shortly after the band kicked off its massive North American tour in support of its new album, "A Different Kind Of Truth". But one member of the group is missing from the soundcheck: frontman David Lee Roth, who prefers to skip the daily ritual and rest his voice instead. So the video features bassist — and son of Eddie Van Halen — Wolfgang Van Halen filling in for Diamond Dave on the mic, and not doing a half-bad job.
The video appeared online thanks to someone associated with Esquire magazine, which conducted a rare, lengthy and just-published interview with Eddie while the band was in New York.
VAN HALEN next plays in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday (May 5),with the current tour extending all the way into mid-August.
"A Different Kind Of Truth" came out in February and is the first all-new VAN HALEN album since 1998, as well as the first disc with Roth on lead vocals in more than a quarter-century.
