  • Following up on his recent re-recordings of “Panama” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love,” David Lee Roth has issued a newly recorded live-in-studio take of Van Halen‘s “Dance The Night Away.” Like the other re-recordings, the new track was cut as part of a 14-song session back in May at L.A.’s Henson Studios.
    • It’s unclear if all the songs are all early-Van Halen retreads or whether any new material was also committed to tape.
  • During a new chat with Rolling Stone, Sammy Hagar shed light on his personal politics and how he votes in each election: “I do not get involved in politics. When the right is right, I’m on that side. When the left is right, I’m on that side. The one thing I don’t like is f***in’ evil, greedy criminals that f***this country over and f*** the land over. We have to take care of the air we breathe and the water we drink. That’s who I vote for.”
  • Regarding former-President Donald Trump, Hagar said: “He’s an a**hole. I don’t like the fact that he was down on Mexicans because I think the Mexican people are some of the greatest people on the planet. I live in Mexico. And those are God-loving, family-oriented, hard-working people. Without them, we can’t do s***t in America. . . I liked that Trump wanted to clean up politics, but I’m not sure what his motives were. He’s just so arrogant.”
    • On the topic of President Joe Biden, Hagar stated, “I don’t think he’s done very well. I think we need a younger, stronger mind. Biden does know politics because he’s been in there so long, and he’s got a lot of people around him, but I don’t like this administration. I didn’t like the last one either though.” (Rolling Stone)
