Former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth recently posted an audio clip on his YouTube channel in which he slams the band’s bassist Wolfgang Van Halen for “unpleasant behavior.”
“This f-in’ kid,” Roth says, “he’s complaining the entire tour like I’m not paying enough attention to him on stage. He’s complaining to everybody around me – the business manager, the security guy, the clothing lady – ‘Dave’s not paying enough attention to me.’”
Recounting an incident during a tour, Roth claims Wolfgang “commandeered a couple of monkeys to go in back, behind my back, over to the side of the stage and throw out these two great dames that I invited to be my guests to the show.”
“In fact, you aren’t gonna believe this s-. This f-in’ kid, what he doesn’t know is that these two dames work for the accounting firm that represent him, not me,” he continued. “But as usual, he, just like his uncle and his uncle’s brother, stiffed them for tickets.”
Roth adds that at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl in 2015 at the end of the band’s final tour, Wolfgang made a female guest to do “the walk of shame” and ejected her from the venue.
Wolfgang Van Halen, who is the son of iconic guitarist Eddie Van Halen and actress Valerie Bertinelli, has not yet responded to Roth’s accusations.
