David Lee Roth Responds to Van Halen Tribute Tour Rumors

Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted introduced the job to gentle when he just lately mentioned he was invited to jam with Alex Van Halen and guitarist Joe Satriani with eyes in the direction of a likely tour. Newsted eventually bowed out since he “failed to want it to be seen as a revenue seize.”
For his portion, Satriani acknowledged that a Van Halen tribute tour would be “a actual labor of love” for the guitarist. “I was just so honored to consider on the challenge,” he described.
Now, Roth has chimed in for the 1st time. In a statement to the Van Halen Information Desk, the vocalist mentioned: “In my brain, ‘Van Halen 4k,’ in the age of COVID is going to involve two of us for every position. Satriani and Lukather, Anthony and Newsted, Al or Tommy Lee.”
Notably, this is the initial time any one has outlined the opportunity involvement of Toto’s Steve Lukather and Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee in a Van Halen tour. It is also surprising to see Wolfgang Van Halen absent from Roth’s proposed bassists.
