David Lee Roth Says Van Halen Are Avoiding Overexposure

(Classic Rock) It may come as a surprise, but Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth believes there's a limit to how much exposure his band should get.

During a recent TV show he explains his theory that their appearances should be like James Bond movies. He says: "Those first 15 years you tour constantly. You're everywhere.

"Now we're on what I call the James Bond schedule. James Bond movies only come out every three years or so. It's been around so long and it's so familiar that, any sooner and its, 'What did he just do?'"

In the full show Roth explains that his house in Pasadena is just about his only example of rock'n'roll excess when it comes to possessions, saying: "I've been here the length of the Van Halen career. A lot of folks in my position like things and stuff an Italian sports car with a six-syllable name and an Italian trophy wife with a five-syllable name. This was the one material thing that I bought." Read more and watch video of the interview here.
