David Lee Roth says that Van Halen is over. Although there has been no official announcement of a break-up, Eddie Van Halen has tried a number of times to resurrect the band but it keeps falling over. Roth says they are finished.

In a new interview with 101WRIF David Lee Roth says “It’s been cancelled a number of times and I think Van Halen’s finished.

Roth added, “I’ve inherited the band (defacto). Van Halen isn’t goijng to coming back. Eddie’s got his own story to tell — not mine to tell it.”

Van Halen never toured Australia with David Lee Roth but they did play a one-off Sydney show with Roth in 2013. The show was pure Spinal Tap.
