    Default Question about Roth's knee

    Hey, was curious, which knee did Roth have work done on? This was within the past few years if I recall correctly. Reason I ask is that in one of the recent tour clips I watched I saw him step up the S curve stairs back onto the stage in the exact same manner I do when stepping up a stair......sort of a hobbling step caused by pain incurred when you use the knee.

    It was his left knee, anyway just curious if this was the same knee he had work done on. He really looked hobbled and would explain his "select" line of kicks he does rather than the breadth of different types he use to do.

    He probably hurt his knee begging Ed to take him back again.

    Can you post/copy/paste the clip? I'd like to see it.
    If it sounds like bull shit, feels like bull shit, and appears to be bull shit, it's probably Eddie talking about his new lead singer being his new brother at a press conference...

    man, there is no way I can find it. it was one of those "watch 20 seconds of a clip on youtube, click on "related" vid, repeat 16 times" sessions, there's no way I could find it again

    If I happen to dunce upon it again I'll post. I guess we can eliminate all the songs he didn't go out on the walk on, guess I'll rummage through I'll Wait clips first.

    Can't believe I found it. It's at the 2:15 mark. Just small mannerisms that people with knee pain will notice, like using his arms to get momentum coming up the step. It's extremely subtle, but stuff like this is.

    xk319, do you recall where and when you read of Roth's surgery? The only links that I've come across relate to the Tiger Woods gig, and comments regarding Tiger's knee repair that has left him sidelined until sometime next year.

    I remember reading about it in a reply to a post at rotharmy about a year ago. I recall reading the surgery was during 05 maybe? It wasn't an in depth reply mind you, just sort of mentioned in passing.

    Realize this is murkey info. I surely thought more would have information regarding this.

    That San Diego concert has a couple of my favorite YouTube clips from the tour - this one with the cell phone bit ("here's a picture for you!"), and also the "Panama" video, where Dave got confused and started singing "Ain't Talking 'Bout Love" in the breakdown during the middle of the song.

    I had ACL surgery on my knee and based on what xk319 noted, yeah, I can believe that Dave may have had some knee issues; he certainly hesitated some while climbing at the 2:15 mark of the video like I do sometimes (could be old age too ). I've never heard of him having surgery on the knee though.

    there was a couple of points in the video where he looks like he's favouring it a bit...this was before he was stopped by police in Simcoe, Ontario so it couldn't be from getting roughed up by the cops!

    Whatever happened to that Gerald Pitts guy, the fellow that claimed to have "discovered" an apparently not dead Jim Morrison working as a cowboy in Oregon a few years ago?

    So basically brent, we make a stop at "Paul Diamond's Magic And Fun Shop", pick up some wigs, scarves, sunglasses and sequins and we are set. Oregon and Ontario, here we come!
