David Lee Roth has gifted fans with a delightful surprise—a brand new, previously unreleased track called “Manda Bala.”
This song was created during a recording session that took place back in 2007, the result of a harmonious collaboration between Roth and John Lowery, affectionately known as John 5. John 5 currently lends his talents as the guitarist to the renowned rock band Motley Crue.
The exciting part is that there’s more to this story. Safely tucked away in the archives is a full album featuring additional tracks from these recording sessions, waiting for its moment to shine. This revelation offers a glimmer of hope to devoted fans who can eagerly anticipate more melodious treasures to enjoy in the not-so-distant future.
The creative journey of Roth and John 5 extends back to the late 1990s when they first combined their musical prowess for Roth’s DLR Band album. Their fruitful collaboration was destined to shine once again in 2003, with John 5’s involvement in co-writing one of the three original tracks for Roth’s Diamond Dave project.
Beyond this, John 5 went on to become an integral part of Marilyn Manson’s band and also embarked on a fruitful partnership with Rob Zombie in 2005 before taking up his present role as the guitarist for Motley Crue.
The release of “Manda Bala” is a special treat for fans of both Roth and John 5. As they bask in the melodies of this newfound song, it also sets the stage for an exciting expectation—the imminent release of a full album. With this album on the horizon, music lovers can look forward to an abundance of more musical surprises that are yet to be unveiled, promising to be a memorable addition to their musical collections.
