Roth returns with Mustang Sally

David Lee Roth has posted a teaser clip for the next edition of his webTV show, in which he covers classic R&B track Mustang Sally.

He and Van Halen have kept quiet in recent months, after returning to action with 2012 album A Different Kind Of Truth but later cancelling much of their touring plans.

Roth said at the time the reunited outfit had “bitten off more than we can chew, as usual,” and said they’d return in due course.

Mainman Eddie Van Halen was spotted visiting an LA mastering studio in July, sparking hopes that the band’s 13th studio album will be announced soon.

Former bassist Michael Anthony, who was replaced by Van Halen’s son Wolfgang, recently told of his sadness at being blanked by his former bandmates – while he was able to keep in touch with some of their crew.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
