David Lee Roth streams new song inspired by Van Halen

David Lee Roth is streaming “Nothing Could Have Stopped Us Anyway”, a newly-released song inspired by the early days of Van Halen.

The tune follows “Pointing At The Moon” as the latest track issued from sessions with John Lowery, aka longtime Rob Zombie guitarist John 5.

“You can’t deny a good song and Dave writes good songs,” John 5 told in 2021 following the release of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bar And Grill” – which Roth shared as a tribute to bandmate Eddie Van Halen in the weeks following the death of the iconic guitarist in October 2020 at the age of 65 – and “Giddy-Up.” “He’s written some of the most amazing songs of our lifetime, and Dave worked really hard on these lyrics. I’m not sure when it’s going to come out or if it’ll come out, but I hope it does.

“There’s one I’ll tell you about called ‘Nothing Could Have Stopped Us’, and it’s unbelievable. Being a Van Halen fan and a Dave Lee Roth fan, it’s unbelievable because it’s about Dave singing about Van Halen and what it was like. Really something special, so I really hope that comes out.”

Roth first worked with John 5 on his 1998 release, “DLR Band”, before the rocker went on to join Marilyn Manson’s band; he co-wrote one of three original tracks on Roth’s 2003 covers project, “Diamond Dave”, before beginning his current tenure with Zombie in 2005.
