David Lee Roth to return online with new website launch

David Lee Roth has announced plans to launch a new website after being offline for the past year.

The Van Halen News Desk reports the singer will open a new online home on February 7 at and deliver a new episode of his web series The Roth Show.

Roth’s website and social media sites went dark at the end of January 2015 without explanation…just days before Van Halen announced plans to release “Tokyo Dome Live In Concert.”

There’s no word on whether or not the rocker will restart a Facebook page or actively return to Twitter, and the YouTube channel for The Roth Show currently hosts no content.

2015 saw Roth and Van Halen deliver a 3-month summer tour of North America in support of the live album.

Things have been quiet in the Van Halen camp since they closed out their 2015 tour with a pair of shows at the Hollywood Bowl in early October.

As for Roth, the lineup featured on his 1986 debut full-length solo album, “Eat ‘Em And Smile”, were set to reunite last November to perform songs from the record with guest vocalist Ralph Saenz (a.k.a. Michael Starr of Steel Panther).

A Fire Marshall shut down the free 30th anniversary reunion at The Lucky Strike in Hollywood due to concerns over crowd size.

The event would have marked the first public performance in three decades by guitarist Steve Vai, bassist Billy Sheehan, drummer Gregg Bissonette and keyboardist Brett Tuggle, who were set to perform with Saenz and Roth himself.
