David Lee Roth graced us with a new song over the weekend. In typical Dave fashion, this song is little on the eccentric side. A short, mellow song titled “Pointing At The Moon”.
A few years ago, local guitar hero, John 5 told me that some stuff he recorded with Dave might someday come out. “It will. There’s been a revision of things, and I can start making real plans and start marching into the future. And, of course, you’ll start hearing that material. This is material that we wrote variously for me solo and for VAN HALEN, and it’s quite a bank of stuff.”
What do you think of this song? Personally, I like just about everything Dave does. This song reminds me slightly of “Damn Good” from 1988. I like it for the most part, not sure why it ends so abruptly. I think it needs to be reworked at the end.
