VIDEO: Van Halen’s David Lee Roth – Love Train

While Van Halen are enjoying some downtime this summer, the band have offered up a fun and quirky video for fans.

David Lee Roth has developed a studio routine where he warms up his voice by singing along to The O’Jays 1973 smash, “Love Train.”

Roth issued footage of him doing just that when he posted part 1 of his “Scrapbook” video series back in January – watch it here.

Roth is often recorded during his vocal warm-ups, and now he has released a video called “50 Rides On The Love Train.”

The clip is 50 completely different versions of Roth singing “Love Train” accompanied with video of him dancing at various places.

“Love Train” was The O'Jays' first and only number-one record on the U.S. pop chart; the song hit #1 on both the R&B Singles and Billboard Hot 100 in February and March of 1973 respectively.

Van Halen wrapped up the first leg of their “A Different Kind Of Truth” tour last month in New Orleans.

The band is taking the summer off before heading to Japan for a series of November shows; there are also rumors that VH are in talks with promoters to play Australia, as well.
