David Lee Roth releases 2014 retrospective video

Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has issued a montage of his 2014 in pictures and video set to his cover of Mack Rice’s 1965 classic, “Mustang Sally.”

“My name is Dave Roth, and what a long great trip 2014 was ...” explains the singer as a setup to the video, billed as a Happy New Year's messsage from his online series The Roth Show.

It’s the second new clip in a month from Roth, who released “Talkin' Christmas Blues” in December.

In the spring of 2014, Roth revealed that he had been working on a secret Van Halen project.

“Doing some catching up here, a little bit of a scrapbook,” he explained. “We’ve been doing a lot of travelling. [I’ve been] working on a great Van Halen project - can’t announce anything … or I’d have to come find you and swear you to secrecy.”

At press time, there remains no official word from the Van Halen camp regarding an update on new music or further details about the project referred to by Roth.
