David Lee Roth recently posted a tweet that included an artwork on which he wrote that there doesn’t seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel.

David Lee Roth is mainly known for his energetic stage shows and as Van Halen’s lead singer. He worked with the band between 1974 and 1985, in 1996, and from 2006 to their disbandment in 2020. Apart from his career in Van Halen, Roth is also a talented solo artist and an appreciated visual artist.

Lately, Roth made an announcement that saddened most of his fans. According to his statement, he has decided to retire after completing his last five shows at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. By announcing this, Roth also confirmed that he will end his musical career that spans 50 years.

As seen in his social media posts, Roth has now returned to his good-old painting hobby after his retirement decision. In a recent tweet, he posted an artwork without any commentary on what it implied. However, he wrote in the painting that there will no longer be any light at the end of the tunnel.

The inscription on the artwork read:

“Attention. Due to budgetary constraints, there will no longer be a light at the end of the tunnel. We apologize for any inconvenience. -Management.”

Upon seeing David Lee Roth’s tweet, fans were quick to respond and share their thoughts on what it could mean. While some fans took this seriously, some made jokes by saying that the light is actually coming from a train.

Although what DLR really meant to say remains unknown, it is possible that it might be about his decision to retire. Considering the singer’s other tweet, which implied that he might not be retiring at all, things would get more confusing if that is the case.

One of David Lee Roth’s fans jokingly said:

“Cause that light at the end of the tunnel is the front of an oncoming train!”

Another stated that the light is actually Roth himself:

You will always be a light at the end of the tunnel.”

On the other hand, one of the fans took the statement seriously and said:

“Hit the smaller venues. I remember when you were about to play with the DLR Band in Hollywood. Please try that again.”
