DAVID LEE ROTH SAYS VAN HALEN’S HOT FOR COMBAT:
December 28, 2006
TMZ caught up with David Lee Roth in Manhattan last night, and he warned that a potential Van Halen reunion could result in a NASCAR-style wreck. Or a “Jerry Springer”-like brawl. Or even a “Knots Landing”-esque bitchfight!
Diamond Dave, looking dapper and well-coifed outside of Marquee, said that he’s excited that Van Halen was nominated for a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but wondered whether the band would spontaneously combust if they reunited. For months, the band has hinted at a reunion, but Roth admitted in May that he hasn’t spoken to guitarist Eddie Van Halen for almost two years.
“A Van Halen reunion is a lot like NASCAR — are you there to see the winner or the crash?” mused Dave. “In this aspect, we’re a lot closer to “Jerry Springer” meets “Knots Landing, which, to me, sells T-shirts.” And probably tickets too.
