    David Lee Roth Played Last Night in New Orleans!

    So my wife goes away for 4 days to New Orleans for a work convention.The whole U.S. sales staff for RJ Reynolds Tobacco.About 3,000 people.They have their whole day planned for them from breakfast till after dinner.Boring stuff until the night time.So yesterday, she tells me that since it's the last night that they are going to be in New Orleans,the company has a special guest performer that is going to be entertaining them for the evening at the New Orleans Riverwalk Convention Center..During the day,she tells me that their was a rumour that Kid Rock was going to perform.So I think thats pretty cool.So she calls me at about 10:30 p.m.eastern last night and tells me that it's not Kid Rock but it's none other than Diamond Dave and his band.So I'm freaking out since she is there and I'm home here in Philly cleaning my cats shitter box.My wife kept calling me on her cell phone to listen and it sounded really good.She said that they sounded great.She said Dave has short hair and was in good shape.They played for about 1 and 1/2 hours.He played pretty much all VH except for Just a Gigilo.She didn't keep a list of the songs or remember all of them.She isn't a die hard like the rest of us.I heard Unchained,Runnin',Jump,Aint'Talkin',Dance the Night,Gigilo,Panama not in that order. Thats my story and I figured that I would share it with you.I wish I could have been there but I couldn't.Oh well, I did see VH this past summer 6 times so I can't complain. Peace!!!!

    That's cool that you got to hear some of it. Nothing like throwing back a few Hurricanes and listening to Diamond Dave.

    Hi guys,

    This I think is a real possibility. I have already e-mailed Dave's agency but they have yet to respond. Maybe somebody here could e-mail again. There's a form you have to fill out with a few questions on it, nothing too involved. They promise to respond within 24hrs, but I haven't heard anything back and this was last week I did this. Maybe somebody else will have better luck.

    I'm sure you would've gotten a quick response if you would've signed it:

    No, it'd have be somewhere relatively neutral, somewhere cheaper to fly into, so it wouldn't be east or west coast. It'd be CHEAPEST to buy a gig west coast...less travel expenses for Dave and co.

    We're talking Vegas here, of course.

    That way, the Aussies and Euro pals could join in on the fun.

    Renting out one of those off-strip joints, like Barbary Coast or the Orleans, maybe downtown off Fremont, even Whiskey Pete's or Buffalo Bill's at Stateline...

    Heck, if only TEN of us put together some moxy, spit, baling wire, and tape, coalated costs via Dave's peeps, polled enough Linkers, collected enough deposits...

    it could happen.

    But I guess it's kind of like getting a thousand cats to do one thing at the same time. Good fuckin' luck.

    But it AIN'T the money. Believe that. Between us, we could afford it (barring travel expenses, of course).

    It's the difference between dream and reality. Motivation.

    They won't reply probably unless you are a big corporation.You think he would play for us if it was an email from one of our names.I don't think so.

    It's not about the employer. It's about the bucks. Pretty standard biz protocol. Besides, some of us surely work for corporations.
