David Lee Roth reveals that the “private” name of his new band is Horses of God
Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth was recently interviewed by the radio station KHSE 95 in anticipation of the singer’s Las Vegas residency at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA in January and March 2020.
Roth spoke about his new band that will be backing him up during his Las Vegas residency as he stated: “In terms of the music, I start where the record starts. We do not sound like Van Halen live. You have not heard this. Van Halen live is lead, bass, drum, sing. Here we start with three, four guitars and we bring it with an unforgiving attitude. We’re not strumming with the devil. This is not some tribute band.”
The singer continued: “I’ve got these guys in their mid 20s. They love it! We named the band. It’s a private name. And we named it after the sound. Think Van Halen music. The name of my band is Horses of God.” Roth added: “That is the way, that is the way it sounds. The way it sounds in your pick up truck to work. That’s the way it sounded when you celebrated your first kid being born and listen to this music. That’s the way it sounded when you graduated law school or cop school. That’s the way it sounded when you joined the marines. That’s the way — I have one guy who has requested Van Halen music when we bury him.”
