David Lee Roth has released a new solo song titled “Pointing At The Moon” which you can check out below along with it’s official music video.
Back in 2020, the former VAN HALEN singer released five previously unreleased songs in what was called “The Roth Project“, an online comic narrated by Roth and featuring music from guitarist/bassist John 5, Greg Bissonette on drums, Brett Tuggle on keyboards, and Luis Conte on percussion. The tracks “Giddy-Up!”, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bar And Grill”, “Alligator Pants”, “Lo-Rez Sunset” and “Manda Bala” were recorded almost ten years ago at Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood, California.
When John 5 was asked in a recent interview with the “Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz” if he gets a “notice” every time one of the previously unreleased songs from his Roth sessions is officially made available, the guitarist said: “I don’t get a notice, which is funny. I just find out on Blabbermouth or something. But there’s a song that I just can’t wait for Dave to release. It’s called ‘Nothing Could Have Stopped Us‘ and it’s about VAN HALEN. It’s my favorite song that I’ve ever done with Dave, and it is beautiful. I don’t know why he’s not releasing that one yet. And I just can’t wait for people to hear that one. ‘Cause it’s about VAN HALEN. It’s just absolutely wonderful. I just am really looking forward to him releasing that one.”
John 5 went on to talk about the recording sessions for the unreleased Roth record, saying: “We had a great time. We had a blast — a lot of laughs, a lot of fun. I’m just so happy that I had that cool working vibe with Dave that we can just jump into the studio anytime and knock out some songs. And I’m very lucky ’cause not a lot of people get a chance to do that with Dave.
He added: “We were all in there together — I remember we were just all in there together. And that’s how it was. We were all just doing it together — kind of like the old days, and he wanted to do it like that. And it really was a lot of fun. We had so much fun doing it. And it’s one of my fondest memories.”
