Guitarist John 5 recently talked to “The Jeremy White Podcast”, where he talked about singer David Lee Roth’s retirement.
Here’s what John 5 said:
“He’s been releasing songs that me and David had done every couple of months. And then there’s a song I really hope he releases. It’s called ‘Nothing Could Have Stopped Us’, and it is absolutely my favorite David Lee Roth. And not just because we worked on it together, but it is so good and so sincere.
“These are our superheroes, and they are human, and a lot of ’em are starting to retire. And I think that’s okay. They’ve given us so much great music and so many amazing memories. And if they wanna retire, they know. And I think it’s good for certain artists to say, ‘Oh, I’m gonna hang it up,’ and things like that. And instead of us being upset and mad about it, I just feel, like, ‘Thank you for the music, the memories.'”
David Lee Roth announced that he was ending his career with his upcoming Las Vegas residency during the first weeks of January.
