During a recent interview with ‘Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon,’ one of the greatest bass guitarists, Billy Sheehan, talked about Van Halen singer David Lee Roth and shared his thoughts about Roth’s recent Las Vegas performances.

As we all know, David Lee kicked off a nine-show residency in Las Vegas earlier this month. A few days ago, he performed as part of these shows in Las Vegas.

However, most of Roth’s fans didn’t like this show at all and criticized him with harsh words on social media. After these criticisms, Billy Sheehan responded to the fans and defended David Lee Roth.

Here’s what Billy Sheehan stated:

“Dave will always be my hero. I always have supreme respect for him, I love him dearly, and I wish him nothing but the absolute best.

Dave is his own man, he does his own thing, that’s why he’s Dave. He’s got his way of doing things, God bless him.”

He continued:

“I saw some of the videos from the very first show. Unfortunately, people were pretty rough on him… Just let Blabbermouth do an article on you, and then just reap the hell from no matter what, you can’t win. [Laughs]”
