David Lee Roth On VAN HALEN's Future: "I Wouldn't Hold My Breath"

The future of Van Halen isn't looking too bright according to vocalist David Lee Roth. In September, Roth said "I think Van Halen's finished and this is the next phase" in reference to his Las Vegas residency.

Now in an interview with PodKats! Las Vegas Entertainment, Roth adds it's not for him to guess about the band's future, but he wouldn't hold his breath waiting either.

"I just called Ed to find out who the guitar tech I need to talk to is and some of the gear I need. Everybody's fully aware [of the residency]. We live in small circles here. We have the same manager, everything. The stuff you sing along with, I wrote. I'm a part-owner. It's in the DNA. Whatever happens with Van Halen, it's not for me to guess. I wouldn't hold my breath."

Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen has also reportedly been battling throat cancer for the first time since being given the all-clear in 2002. Roth recently said Eddie "wasn't doing well" and that he's "inherited the band de facto." Eddie himself has still not commented on his health publicly, and the only real source we have close to Eddie is Roth.

Van Halen put out what may be their final album A Different Kind of Truth in 2012 and went on hiatus in 2015.
