After David Lee Roth’s departure from the band, Daryl Hall was asked to fill in for the lead vocals. He turned it down and has not played with Van Halen since. Nevertheless, he has been on the radar of many fans and is making his comeback with a solo tour that kicks off in April. The band will feature the return of singer Sammy Hagar, and will release a new solo album on April 1.
Currently, Daryl Hall is on tour with his own band, Hall and Oates. The two-piece rockers have been reunited for a tour in the US with the help of Todd Rundgren. He is working on an archive album, and says that he was once asked to replace David Lee Roth in the band. He was even offered the front-man role in Van Halen’s lineup, and he would have jumped at the opportunity.
Eventually, Van Halen decided to part ways with Hall and Oates, with the two leading the band through some of the most successful pop records of the 1980s. The two had become legendary in their own right after releasing a number of studio albums and a series of live concerts. During the tour, Hall was able to perform some of his solo work and paired the songs with his original versions.

According to Billboard, Ricky Hall was contacted by Eddie Van Halen during a rehearsal session for a vanhalen tour. The band was in need of a new lead singer and hired Sammy Hagar. But in 2007, they got together and produced a new album, and David Lee Roth’s vocals returned to the band. The group’s reunion led to the release of their latest full-length album in 2012, and they have yet to disband.
The news was not surprising to fans. While the legendary 80s pop duo reunited in 2012, David Lee Roth has not been back to the band since his departure in 1984. The band members’ reunion was a success in the United States. Its members have been touring the world since then and have been touring ever-since. There is no doubt that the rumours about David’s departure from Van Halen are true and the two men have been in contact with each other in the years since.
In the late 1980s, Hall and Oates were asked to replace David Lee Roth in the rock group. The band’s new singer was Sammy Hagar. The singer was hired by Van Halen to reboot the band. However, he was unable to do so and was replaced by David Lee Roth. But later in 2007, the band reformed and he remained the lead vocalist in the group.
