David Lee Roth thinks his love for dance music is reason for friction with Eddie Van Halen over decades
Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth was recently interviewed by RollingStone and spoke about what he thought was the reason for the friction between him and fellow bandmate / guitarist Eddie Van Halen over these last few decades.
The following is an excerpt from the article / interview by RollingStone:
You haven’t truly lived until you’ve been on the business end of a David Lee Roth zinger. “Can you do a drum sound, like in dance music? Everybody has their own version,” he asks mere seconds into our phone call. After a few oomph-oomph-oomphs, he cuts me short. “All right, I can already tell your ethnicity,” he says with a laugh. The singer or, as he puts it, “the patron saint of midnight when everybody’s guilty” explains that he is, in fact, a dance-music aficionado. “It’s the reason Eddie Van Halen and I have had so much friction over these decades,” he says. “It’s the only music I listen to.”
