What is David Lee Roth’s net worth?
David is one of the most successful rock musicians in the world. Thanks to his immense talent and a successful career, the singer has managed to make quite the fortune for himself.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, David has an estimated net worth of $60 million. He served as the lead singer for Van Halen across three stints, from 1974 to 1985, in 1996 and from 2006 until its disbandment in 2020.
The band grossed more than $93million from sales in their reunion tour, which is said to be the highest of any North American tour in the band’s history.
David also established himself as a successful solo artist during the course of his music career by releasing several RIAA-certified Gold and Platinum albums.
A look at the singer’s personal life
David was never married and maintained enough privacy around his personal life to make sure it isn’t discussed in the media.
However, in an interview with Vogue, he did reveal that he had girlfriends back in the day.
Recollecting the time when he first moved to New York, David said, “I came here in 1990. One of many times—I broke up with my girlfriend, Stacy from Dallas. That’s this line on my forehead. All the lines in my forehead are named after girlfriends.”
The singer doesn’t have any children either if that’s what you’re wondering after learning about his dating life.
What Van Halen’s singer has to say about his retirement
Even though David told the interviewer to make the announcement about his retirement official, he chose not to explain the reason behind the same.
“I’m not going to explain the statement. The explanation is in a safe. These are my last five shows,” the singer said.
Before dropping the bomb, the singer reportedly said, “I ask that you bear with me here. Please try not to interrupt. I’m going to close my eyes and take you on a ride.”
He also revealed that he had just spoken to fellow band member Alex Van Halen before revealing the news.
“We speak to each other constantly, two or three times a day. We laugh like pirates,” he said.
