    Default David Lee Roth article from the Guardian 2/2/12

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012...roth-van-halen

    HIGHLIGHTS:

    Full circle in another sense, too, for next week's release of the new Van Halen album, A Different Kind of Truth, marks the first recordings Roth has made with the band since departing amid a cloud of bitterness in 1985, when he was replaced by his arch-enemy Sammy Hagar (as far back as the 70s, Hagar was calling Roth a "faggot", Roth responding by saying Hagar had "a social problem").

    ----------------------

    Even so, he has chosen once again to hitch himself to the Van Halen wagon. Is it possible he and Eddie Van Halen – for all the very public acrimony between them – need each other to create anything resembling their best work? For the first time, Roth pauses – there are 30 seconds before he speaks. Then, finally: "Clearly. Very astute. Clearly." Apart, they're footnotes; together, they're a novel.

    ----------------------

    Good stuff...
