Van Halen’s David Lee Roth and guitarist John 5 of Rob Zombie’s band have made a new album together, although it’s unclear when, if ever, it will be available.
At the end of an interview last week with rock journalist Mitch Lafon
, John 5 opened up about collaborating with Roth, an admission that left Lafon almost speechless because it was so unexpected.

"We just made another record and it’s like the California sessions, he (Roth) was calling it, and it’s 11 of the greatest songs you’ll ever hear,” John 5 told Lafon. “And it’s just me and Dave and we had Greg Bissonett play drums on it. And it’s unbelievable. There’s a song called 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow Bar and Grill.' And you know, just great, great songs. And hopefully sometime it’ll see the light of day. But he’s, of course, busy with Van Halen and all that stuff. But it’s an incredible record."
John 5 went on to say that he went to Roth’s house frequently during the day to write songs and then they’d book the studio at night. When Lafon pushed to find out when the two had worked on the original music, John 5 said it was in the past year and a half.
“It’s an incredible record,” John 5 said. “It sounds like just Dave from that Van Halen I or II or Women and Children First era. It’s incredible, man, it’s really incredible. He (Roth) loves it, too, so maybe it’ll see the light of day sometime.”
Ultimate Classic Rock speculated that a new Van Halen album is coming out
, based on Roth saying at the end of 2013 that a “secret” project was happening.
