David Lee Roth Confirms New Van Halen Songs Are Old

(Rock News Desk) Van Halen singer David Lee Roth has confirmed reports the band's new album consists of old material. A Different Kind of Truth, released next week, marks Van Halen's first release since 1998 and the first with founding member Roth since 1984.

Roth tells the LA Times: "It's material that Eddie and I generated in 1975, 1976 and 1977. Usually fellas in our weight division will kind of gamely or ironically, wink-wink try to hail back to it, but keep a safe, mature distance from it."

The band's reasoning, says the singer, is they know they're not the men they used to be. "Are there second chances?" he asks. "I'm tending to 'no.' We've managed to stretch our adolescence like a chiclet to the moon, and maintained the respectful dignities along the way that got us on that turnpike up in the first place." more on this story
