During a new episode of “The Roth Show” podcast, singer David Lee Roth talked about his working relationship with late guitarist Eddie Van Halen.
About their relationship, Roth said:
“My dear departed Ed. Boy, I miss him. I had a ball with Ed.
”Walt Disney once said, ‘You know what? My love affair with Mickey Mouse was better than any love affair with a woman I ever had.’ I’ve gotta tell ya: playing with Ed, writing songs with Ed, presenting those songs with Ed was better than any love affair I ever had.
”And some of those songs, I think, might last forever, or until the last syllable of time, like Shakespeare said. They became anthems. Where are they playing ”Jump” right now?”
