In a new interview with The RollingStones, Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth admitted the time ‘dance music’ become the main music he listened to.
Here is his statement:
“My pop was just graduated from medical school and was starting his practice, and we moved to Altadena, California.
And that became part of the busing program. So the very first record I ever bought was a one-dollar single of Major Lance singing “Monkey Time.” All my first girlfriends were black and Spanish-speaking.
A couple of them, you can still look at on old YouTube rewinds of Soul Train. And I own two lowriders to this day. That’s for goin’ to the 7-Eleven. Ask Armin the next question.”
