On the countdown to his farewell concerts, David Lee Roth, the former vocalist of Van Halen, released a new song as a solo artist. It is called “One Piece Thermo-Molded Country Plastic Chair,” which in his words “is dedicated to all those affected by the Kentucky tornadoes.”
Remember that between January 14 and 22 he will be giving the last concerts of his career in Las Vegas, lowering the curtain on more than 40 years of activity on the stage. He has not specified if he will continue releasing study material, for while you can check out his new song and his official video below.
The announcement of his retirement was in October, when he said “I’m going to hang up the boots” to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I retire. This is the first, and only, official announcement. … You already have the news. Share it with the world ”.
He added: “I am not going to explain the statement. The explanation is in a safe. These are my last five concerts ”.
Roth also reflected on the passing of his longtime bandmate, legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen, who died of cancer more than a year ago.
“I thought it could have been the first, frankly,” Roth said. “I could have thought the Marlboro Man would have got me. Hey Ed, the objects in the rear view mirror are probably me. And my doctors, my manipulators, forced me to really address that every time I go on stage, I put that future in jeopardy. I feel encouraged and compelled to really face how short time is, and my time is probably even shorter, ”he added.
Roth will return to the House Of Blues at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for a new series of shows that will begin with a performance on New Years, followed by four concerts in January 2022.
“I know that when I’m in the crowd, whether you’re hanging out with a ukulele or a marching band, all I ask is that you give me everything you have to give,” he said. “That is what I have done for the last 50 years. I have given everything I had to give. It was an incredible and wonderful race, I have no regrets, I have nothing to say about anyone. I will miss you all. Stay tuned. “
