Van Halen’s legendary frontman David Lee Roth participated to the recent episode of the Marc Maron’s “WTF With Marc Maron” podcast and revealed why he decided to part ways with Van Halen in 1985.
Here is what he said about that departure in 1985:
“Why did it fracture? Cause all rock bands fracture. We never got along. It was a beautiful, beautiful pairing of…
You’ve seen cowboy movies where the guys are always sabotaging each other but they’re working to somehow accomplish something.
And I think you’ll see that in a lot of popular bands. They may have gotten through it, but I don’t know that we ever really grew up and became gentrified. Now, that may not be a good thing; a part of me remained 23 years old forever.”
Roth also answered the question if he would sit down with Van Halen brothers to have dinner. As you can read below, he revealed a confusing truth about his relationship with Alex and Eddie Van halen.
Here’s Roth’s answer:
“Nope. Not even close. Not even close. This is not a golf club. This is a little closer to ‘The Wild Bunch’. There is a fury and an antagonism, and what comes out of that is, when it’s good — oh, man.”
