Is Van Halen done?
Singer David Lee Roth dropped a bombshell, if not cryptic, comment on Detroit radio WRIF.
When asked if he was disappointed that he wasn't able to tour with the band over the summer Roth said, "That's been canceled a number of times, and I think Van Halen's finished and this is the next phase. I've inherited the band de facto - whatever that means. I think it means if you inherit it, carry this proudly. Van Halen isn't gonna be coming back in the fashion that you know. And that being said, Eddie's got his own story to tell. [It's] not mine to to tell it."
According to Blabbermouth, Roth also wouldn't address rumors regarding Eddie Van Halen's health: "I hear all the same rumors that you do and it's not my place to guess."
