Van Halen's David Lee Roth teases coming out of retirement

The 67-year-old “Van Halen” lead singer was spotted leaving the Los Angeles International Airport where he admitted he was “only in the middle of my first retirement” months after canceling a Las Vegas residency due to the coronavirus.

Roth was the original vocalist of the hard rock band which formed in the early ‘70s with late guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen and bassist Mark Stone. Roth embarked on a solo career in 1985, and Sammy Hagar picked up on lead vocals.

The “Runnin’ with the Devil” singer was in high spirits after performing at a “birthday party for somebody who grew up” listening to the band.

When asked if Roth was going back on tour any time soon, he simply responded: “There’s always a tomorrow for a singer, not so much for a trombone player these days.”
