Van Halen’s iconic frontman David Lee Roth had a new interview with Missouri radio station KSHE 95 and made a really unexpected statement about Eddie Van Halen and his other bandmates.

As you might know that David Lee Roth will play the band’s older tracks, mainly Van Halen’s self-titled 1978 album in his upcoming shows. David Lee Roth was asked if he will or did ask Eddie or other bandmates permission for that issue.

Here is what David Lee Roth said:

“No. I wrote the songs. I wrote every word you heard, every syllable, every melody. I structured even the guitar solos on that first album.

Why do you think the solos later changed so radically? I sang the solos for Jamie’s Cryin’ and Runnin’ With The Devil etc…”
