    Remember when Dave went on Leno and announced that he was going to be playing in Vegas?

    Only Roth could go to Vegas and make it cool. Usually Vegas is full of performers whose careers peaked at least a decade before they got there...it was funny that Dave would go there just as things were starting to get hot for him.

    After all, he did have a greatest hits record coming out on a major label (rykodisc) and that did at least 60 thousand units right there...so...not too shabby.

    It was so cool how he went on TV, cut his hair, wore a suit and sang California girls to the tape with all those chicks around him. I couldn't possible quantify how cool Roth was on that show! You could barely tell how out of tune he was. That's how you spot a professional, folks.

    Anyway, he played Vegas for a week or two before the contract suddenly expired...umml...Did anyone go see him there? I know his Leno performance sure made ME want to go. He was great!

    I didn't realize his Vegas days were in 1986

    vegas of for grammas and grappas. i saw an outtake where the audience was all seniors and he did a 'dick' joke (y'know the one about buble gum something or other). you could almost see a few of the geezers fill their depends.

    does that answer anything?
