    Default DAVE Talked To ALEX: "The Inevitable Will Happen"

    The following report is courtesy of Kim Lyons from www.Pittsburghlive.com:

    DAVID LEE ROTH makes his radio debut today, taking over the coveted morning drive time slot vacated by Howard Stern, locally on WRKZ 93.7 K-Rock. Diamond Dave, probably best known as the former lead singer of VAN HALEN, talked with the Trib p.m. about the radio show, his job as an emergency medical technician in New York City, cheekless pants and pretty much everything else on his mind.

    Q: Howard Stern had a pretty risque format, to put it mildly. How much do you think your show will resemble his?

    A: "Not at all. I'm not even remotely close to Stern. I'm not a humorist; I'm not a comic; I'm not a comedian. My sense of humor has teeth -- that makes me perfect for the inner city. Just like you, I'm a (expletive) cynic. You'll never get tired of listening to me speak your mind."

    Q: So you won't be going just for laughs.

    A: "The difference between me and a comedian, I don't try -- comedians are desperate for the funny. With me, you either get it or you didn't."

    Q: It sounds like you have a plan of how you want things to go, but not a schedule, or a format, true?

    A: "It will be completely my way and not resemble anything that's ever been on the radio. What other voice can ingratiate and infuriate the liberal arch left -- of which I am a card-carrying member -- and the NASCAR nation -- of which I am a card-carrying member?"

    Q: What's the latest Van Halen news? Do you still talk to those guys?

    A: "I talked to the drummer (Alex Van Halen) about a week ago. And I think, eventually, the inevitable will happen."

    Q: You mean a reunion?

    A: "Sure. And it definitely won't be rockers with walkers. Getting onstage and singing 'Dance The Night Away' - let me tell you how difficult that isn't going to be. When people bring up Van Halen, I talk about it with pride and with no apprehension at all. I play those songs all the time."


    Q: Not to get too off-topic, but is it true that you've been working as an emergency medical technician in New York?

    A: "I got my badge about year and a half ago, and I've worked in all five boroughs, mainly at night. I speak fluent Spanish, so I am often sent where that is an asset. I've seen this city from the inside out. How many other DJs do you know have delivered a baby? I'm on my fourth."

    Q: What are you hoping to do with the radio show?

    A: "Every fourth week, we're going to up and move wherever -- whether it's the Grammys or the Superbowl -- all the bastions of sin and degradation."

    Q: Including Pittsburgh, of course.

    A: "Absolutely. I am going to visit everywhere we play on the air. It's a performance, after all."

    Q: Your, um, unique background will serve you well on the radio, then?

    A: "It's curious what qualifies both Stern and myself to do the same job. He's a family man who has spent the last 20 years in a small little studio and did quite well. I've spent the last 30 years leading a life of crime and international intrigue, so perhaps I'm overqualified."

    Q: Will you be wearing those cheekless pants on the air? And, how will we know?

    A: "Let's face it, I look better in (cheekless) chaps than Al Franken ever (expletive) would."

    Q: And what do you think will keep people tuning in every morning?

    A: "I'll tell people this: it'll give them a good reason to slap a little bourbon in their coffee. You'll get a bottomless cup of attitude, and the second one's free."

    WOW. Creepy. I just had a dream last night of VH with Dave doing "I'll Wait" LIVE on some TV show...

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    ...I'd be the first in line for tickets...or "online" first for tickets.

    Remember the days of getting at the TM outlet at 6am?
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Dave pretty much avoided any real talk about Van Halen today, he was fluffed a bit by a caller and all and briefly addressed the CVH vs. Van HAGAR thing...

    Then makes an interesting comment, "Ill be sure to tell SAM you said that" before cutting it off by hastily throwing on U2's "Vertigo." This is the download here:

    Not sure how I'm feeling about this really. But I do need to point out that the Sam & brothers reunion happened with a phone call from him to Alex....

    Also, isn't it Alex that had the problem with Dave?

    Finally, why the hell were the two of them talking? Maybe it was Al offering DLR best wishes on his new career ?? Ya, a bit far fetched...maybe they were talking about a release of a DVD with some old footage?

    Who knows.

    Nice words from the Diamond One. I hope he does well with his new gig. But then, I also hoped that we'd be hearing some new VH in 2006. So here's to hopin I guess.
