"Ed's [Van Halen] not doing well, and singing and dancing is a perishable skill," the VAN HALEN singer said. "If you have the capacity, it's something that has to be used routinely, if not for the thrill of it and the magic of creating with other incandescent spirits." says David Lee Roth.
Back in September, Roth said that there were no plans for VAN HALEN to do anything for the foreseeable future. "I think VAN HALEN's finished and this is the next phase," he said, referring to his solo project. "And that being said, Eddie's got his own story to tell. Not mine to tell it."
David Lee Roth has told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he decided resume his solo career with the launch of a Las Vegas residency in part because VAN HALEN's future remains under a cloud of uncertainty.
A rep for Van Halen had no comment on TMZ's initial report when reached by Fox News.
