Career

In his late teens, he sang solo and with the Red Ball Jets. Mammoth, a Los Angeles band, rented Roth’s PA system. Mammoth had Eddie and Alex Van Halen. They requested Roth to sing lead. After discovering another band called Mammoth, they changed their name to Van Halen in 1974. Van Halen used to play both original and cover songs. Van Halen gained a local following and landed a four-month residency at West Hollywood’s Starwood Club. Gene Simmons saw Van Halen at the Starwood in 1976 and helped them make their first demo tape. A Warner Brothers record executive saw Van Halen at the Starwood in early 1977 and signed them.

The album Van Halen came out in 1978. Five more albums by the original five members followed in the following seven years. Roth was the band’s lead singer and main lyricist. Roth’s lyrics blended perfectly with Eddie Van Halen’s music to produce Van Halen’s signature sound in the 1980s.

Roth released Crazy from the Heat in early 1985. The fun music videos for “California Girls” and “Just a Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody” helped Roth’s singles flourish. Roth’s first international hit with “Just Like Paradise” came from his solo album Skyscraper, released the same year as Eat ‘Em and Smile. Before retiring from music, Roth released A Little Ain’t Enough in 1991 and Your Filthy Little Mouth in 1994.

During his late 1990s musical break, Roth worked as an EMT.

After a notorious appearance at the 1996 MTV Video Music Awards, Roth quit Van Halen again to write a book titled Crazy From Heat, published in 1997.
