    Metal Vets Unite For New Band
    From: The Stomp Box
    Submitted By: Anthony Jackson

    This story is taken from a new (hard copy) British heavy metal
    magazine called THE STOMP BOX . The debut issue hits stands in
    about three weeks. Here it is:

    Has the trumpet of Gabriel finally ushered in a new era of
    Rockdom? It was at the hallowed halls of Hollywood's Rainbow
    Bar and Grill where a possibly new Renaissance of Rock and
    Roll was begotten. That is where, on a sultry summer night two
    years ago, original Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth ran into
    another notorious Hollywood luminary Tommy Lee. The two
    rockers hoisted a few spirits, swapped rock and roll war
    stories, and before long, Roth found himself hijacked and
    taken back to Tommy Lee's home to listen to tracks Tommy was
    planning on using for a solo album. What began as a few
    suggestions from Roth culminated in a full blown collaboration
    with the two former hair head rockers whipping up a batch of
    ten original tunes in two weeks.

    Confilicting schedules and personal issues precluded Roth and
    Lee from consummating with an album and tour at the time, but
    The Stomp Box caught up with David Lee at a cafe in
    Manhattan's Lower West Side, just two blocks from one of New
    York's most prominent rehearsal studios where Dave has been
    hashing out the Roth/Lee compositions with former KISS lead
    guitarist Vinnie VIncent and ex-Ozzy Osbourne bassist Bob
    Daisley. Ray Luzier, who has toured with Roth since the
    nineties, was handling drum duties.The hyperactive huckster of
    rock was in high spirits and, to our surprise, somewhat
    comprehensible as he gave The Stomp Box the skinny on his new
    project.

    According to Roth this CD will provide some "combustible and
    inextinguishable rock and roll that will shake the world out
    of its lethargic hip hop and alternative slumber." This will
    not be a Roth solo project according to The Diamond One, but a
    full on musical unit! "Robert, Vincent, Thomas, and myself
    have sampled more than our fair share of bitter fruit in this
    crazy business called show. We've decided to harness that
    negative energy and channel it into the music." So, what will
    these disgruntled, dishonored, and disgusted rock and rollers
    call themselves? BITTER PILL according to Roth. When we asked
    for a possible album title , he replied, "What else would you
    call it, Bubba?...SWALLOW."

    Precisely when this album would be recorded is still up in the
    air. Vinnie VIncent is currently unattached , but Bob Daisley
    is set to make a new CD with his band LIVING LOUD featuring
    guitarist Steve Morse, this Fall. Also open for speculation is
    whether or not Tommy Lee himself will step in behind the drum
    kit for the recording sessions or even a tour. "That remains
    to be observed", says Roth. " I sent Thomas a recording of the
    rehearsals and he almost jumped out of his skin. When he
    recovers after being knocked out by the vibe, the flash, the
    attitude, the pomp, and the circumstance, we will await his
    reply."

    There used to be a gossip column that appeared in the Sun Sentinel newspaper here in South Florida written by a fellow named Jose Lambeirre(SP).

    Around this time (late 90's) there was a Dave Roth sighting every weekend, as Roth was friends with a club owner in South Beach.

    This "rumor" appeared in the paper over 5 years ago. Obviously, nothing ever came of it.

    "This rumor" being the one at the beginning of this thread, Craig? Just want to confirm that this is an old rumor.

    Yes, sas...the article that I read long ago mentioned that Dave had a brief "interview" in a club, stating that he was forming a "super-band" with Tommy Lee, roughly in'98 or'99.

    At that time, Motley Crue was dead in the water, yet nothing ever came of it.

    This would be amazing. I'd love to hear the results of this marrige....bring it on Diamond Dave!

    There is only ONE reason (if I were Dave) that this shouldn't / wouldn't / couldn't happen....and I doubt that reason will surface any time soon.

    What would be funny / ironic is IF these two managed to get this thing off the ground and it did well; $5 say Ed and Al would be knocking on Daves door....
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.

    If it's an old rumor, that's too bad. I'd give that a listen for sure.

    More BS sadly. Bob Daisley has killed this one - he knows nothing about it.

    Old rumor or not.....

    "two former hair head rockers" vs. two former bald head rockers?? I've officially heard it all now.

    Imagine that....two musicians tip back a few, show each other the goods, and talk about forming a band?! Sounds to me like a typical Wednesday night in L.A..

    October 18, 1996 - In Dave news, there is a big rumour going around that Slash is forming a super group with Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and David Lee Roth. I have emailed Tommy Lee to ask if the rumour has any foundation and will post his response here. The name of the new supergroup will reportedly be TOMMY.
