After a long time, existing VAN HALEN members have come out and talked about Eddie Van Halen’s death.
David Lee Roth made an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night (September 12) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
In an interview with US Weekly, Roth was asked about Eddie.
Here’s what he said:
“My guitar player passed away, Eddie Van Halen. He’s either in heaven raisin’ hell. Or he’s in hell, consequently in heaven. Read into that as you wish. And he would have me say it just like that. And I carry on that spirit deliberately.”
He further added:
“And you know what? I just spoke to Alex Van Halen. We’re about to celebrate our 50th year or ragging on each other. [Laughs]”
