Singer Mitch Malloy has shared an unreleased Van Halen demo track featuring his vocals. Malloy auditioned for the group in the mid-90’s, was told he was “in the band” but, as is customary with Van Halen, things went murky with the Video Music Awards appearance with David Lee Roth, legal wrangling behind the scenes, and the ultimate decision to hire Gary Cherone as the singer.

Malloy states in the description on youtube:

“It’s 1995 and I’m invited, via a phone call from Eddie, to “hang out” with the band. After an amazing time in L.A., which included Ed saying, “congratulations you’re in the band”, I’m leaving and he hands me a tape of an instrumental of the band and says, “turn this into a song”. Well, I did write that song, but never shared it with anyone out of respect for the band. But, 20 long years later, I decided that with the challenging times the world is having “It’s the Right Time” to share that uplifting song. Fans have wondered what I would sound like with Van Halen, now you will know. I hope you dig it. ROCK!”
