Lzzy Hale, the frontwoman and rhythm guitarist of Halestorm, shared a video of an interview of the lead singer of Van Halen, David Lee Roth, on her official Instagram stories and revealed her admiration for Roth and his energetic stage persona.
Since David Lee Roth is widely known for his wild, radiant, and energetic live performances, during an old interview by MTV News in 1982, the interviewer asked about how he sustains the energetic live shows and Roth stated that his energy comes from within, from the spirit of Rock and Roll.
Here is what the interviewer said:
“I’m really impressed by your energy and physically, your acrobatics. How do you get in shape four tour?”
Here is how Roth answered:
“Well, we pump a lot of aluminum. No, it comes from the inside. It’s the spirit, you know? Rock and roll is far superior to music because it includes so much more. And it’s a natural extension of you know when you’re driving on the street, and you see somebody in the car next to you and you know they’re listening to the radio because their head is kind of going like this.
Some people snap their fingers, you know? Some people get the shoulders moving. So it’s just a logical extension to go ‘Ah!’ And do like that, and sustain it for a couple of hours. That’s what I do for a living.
Most of the moves and the things that I do on stage are taken right off of television or from comic books, or something where you just look at it and you go ‘Hey, I can do that.’ So it’s a natural thing.”
Being a fan of David Lee Roth, Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale shared the old and iconic interview on her official Instagram stories, which was originally shared by guitarist Ryan Cook, and showed her admiration for Roth once again.
As you may remember, a fan account on Twitter has revealed another surprising common thing that links Halestorm frontwoman, Lzzy Hale, to David Lee Roth. It seems like the two were born on the same day, October 10, and their fans were shocked and liked the fact at the same time.
