Van Halen and David Lee Roth: New Stuff from “Old Dudes” [VIDEO]

Earlier in her career as a record promoter (what’s that?), my daughter worked for a company that promoted new material from “classic rockers”.

When she took the job, I wondered, “…who would ever buy new stuff from groups who’s best material is behind them?”

Well, lo and behold, there is a market, albeit a very minute one; probably comprised of guys my age, remembering the glory days of long hair and acrobatics.

Well, the long hair is replaced by, well, perhaps a few sprigs. And the acrobatics are few and far in between.

She eventually had gotten a gold record for the release John Fogerty had put a few years back, disproving my theory that the best was, indeed, behind them.

Well now that David Lee Roth and Van Halen have joined forces; I have to ask again, “Do You Buy New Stuff From Old Dudes?”

I’m reminded of the time I’d seen TJ Lubinski doing a fund raiser for NJN featuring Classic Soul artists Sharon Paige and what was left of Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes.

To say the least, embarrassing!

Not what I remembered!

Van Halen’s North American tour which is coming this February. A Different Kind Of Truth drops Feb. 7.

Would you still buy “new stuff from old dudes?”
