David Lee Roth had a recent conversation with Joe Rogan Experience show, and revealed his real ideas about possible Van Halen reunion.
In the conversation, Roth also shared what he really thinks about Queen legend Freddie Mercury, and stated the reason of why Freddie was so special at his prime time.
“I saw Freddie (Mercury) live at the L.A. Forum, I was probably in the 20th row when ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ had just come out. I saw him at his major, major prime there.
Stagecraft is one thing, but what Freddie was and what he brought was way more than what you saw on stage. His sensibilities in terms of music weren’t just three chords and an attitude.
Freddie brought a whole wealth of listening to different kinds of music, whether it was orchestral, big band or bistro. He didn’t try to sing black, he sang European non-black. What we are very used to, even in the country.
I had a very famous African American producer say to me, ‘do you know what it means to be a black man in the United States today?’ I said ‘every time I step up to a mic!’”
