David Lee Roth, the original vocalist of Van Halen, spoke officially after the death of his former bandmate, Eddie Van Halen. As you all know, the virtuoso guitarist lost the fight against cancer last Tuesday, October 6. A host of music stars paid tribute to the talented artist upon his passing. Finally, David Lee Roth decided to leave a few words.

The vocalist left a very concise message, although concrete, on his social networks. He accompanied himself with an image with the guitarist, in which they are both more than happy.

For those who don’t know, Roth said goodbye to Van Halen following the recording of the hit LP 1984. However, the vocalist returned to the band in 2007 and recorded Van Halen’s latest album, A Different Kind of Truth.


In 2000, Eddie Van Halen was diagnosed with throat cancer. The world rejoiced when in 2002 he was declared free of the disease. However, last 2019 it came to light that the virtuoso guitarist had once again battled this curse, which had been presented again 5 years ago.
