In an interview earlier this week, Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth surprised no one by revealing that he’d had his penis insured by Lloyd’s of London.

Addressing a rumor that he had his entire body insured, he pointed out that he had, in fact, only insured “Little Elvis.” He mentioned that this was a case of, “Get out of the way of a good rumor.”

He said that before the band went on an early tour, “We had to insure [guitarist] Edward’s fingers, since he will be using those a lot on the road, and [drummer] Alex Van Halen’s elbows. So I said, ‘What about Little Elvis? We’re going to be using him a lot.”

While it’s apparent how Edward Van Halen’s fingers and Alex Van Halen’s elbows contributed to the band (or at least it’s sound), Roth didn’t make it clear exactly what “Little Elvis” added to Van Halen’s sound; his swagger, however, is another story.

Roth then mimed in the voice of “Little Elvis,” saying, “Thank you very much.”

Van Halen, presumably with “Little Elvis” (who may still be insured), plays Australia’s Stone Festival on April 20.
