Former Van Halen vocalist, David Lee Roth, recently posted a fresh piece of his artwork on his Twitter account and revealed his stance against the ongoing debate considering the COVID-19 vaccines.
As you know, David Lee Roth reached fame as the frontman of the legendary band Van Halen and he was their vocalist from 1974 to 1985, in 1996, finally from 2006 until the band’s disbandment. However, aside from his passion for music, this year David revealed that he’s also highly interested in visual arts.
Since the beginning of 2020, David Lee Roth started posting his pandemic-themed sketches on his social media accounts. His caricatures were appreciated by thousands of people who encouraged him to start a new visual art project. ‘The Roth Project‘ was described by Roth as a visual and audio story designed by him.
As you have probably heard, the long-awaited COVID-19 vaccines started being discovered in late 2020 and the first two were launched quite recently. While there are some people who cannot wait to get vaccinated and get this virus over with so that they can go back to their normal lives, others are worried about the side effects.
In his recent Twitter post, David Lee Roth demonstrated how he sees the current situation. The illustration read that two things were sure since the launching of the vaccines; that we couldn’t stop the virus from coming, but that we would eventually find a way to send it back if everyone would volunteer. His artwork was appreciated by many and David Lee Roth showed how art can be used to express opinions on important social matters.
Here’s what said in the illustration:
“The first of the two vaccines launched in the winter of ’21 we knew two things for sure…
First: We couldn’t stop the virus from coming.
Second: We could damn well arrange for it to limp home.
