    Default DLR Quotes...

    My January 2009 issue of Classic Rock Magazine arrived with a new feature in it called "Slip of the Tongue". They select one artist and list some of the classic quotes that they've made over the years. This month it's Diamond Dave, and I only recognized a few of the quotes.

    Here they are:

    "Rock n' Roll is a vicious circle. Like a wedding ring." - 1983

    "I know the guys in Eddie Money's band. I ask 'em if I can borrow their amps. I brought my shoes; I'm cool." - 1985

    "I used to jog, but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass." - 1982

    "I look at Van Halen's music as a combination between religion and hockey." - 1981

    "Rock n' Roll is built from the neck down. It's not an intellectual endeavour." - 1981

    "I own the record company now. I make record company money. I'll take your whole fuckin' country out to dinner." - 2006

    "Most of survival is mindset. There's no magic to it. You just eat whatever moves." - 2003
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    Wow, some of that stuff is just dumb. I mean, religion and hockey are definitely the first two things I think of when I listen to Van Halen...

    Good for a laugh, though. I'd be curious to hear more.

    I'm not certain if he really said it, but my favorite is "I used to have a drug problem, but now I make enough money"

    The cesspool, despair and yacht line is one of my favorites.



    The few I hope I never hear again:

    Live in front of your naked steaming eyes

    Look at all the people here tonight

    I forgot the fucking words

    Your so sweet I bet you shit sugar


    I am sure I can come up with some others that he has been using for over 20 years that I don't want to hear anymore, but I am tired and going to bed.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Obviously a poster with a host of contradictions.

    One of my favorites:

    "The reason most rock critics like Elvis Costello is because most rock critics look like Elvis Costello"

    r something similar.

    DLR can dish out the R&R quotes like nobody's business !



    "I'd rather have a Bottle in front of me.....

    Than a frontal lobotamy "




    "First comes the engagement ring....

    Then... the Wedding ring...

    And then the Suffering ..."





    A very young thang coyly remarks .... "Gee Mr. Roth... you're the oldest person I've ever been with ...."

    DLR's response ... "I was just about to say the same thing to you..."

    I thought one of his best was in the most recent (2007) press conference.

    "We don't want to save the world, just 100 cities."

    He is a nut for sure. How about the one that goes something like this:

    " So this woman is yelling and screaming and banging on my door at something like 4:00am. After a while I just could'nt take it anymore. I said fuck and let her out!"

    "I got one foot in memorial day and the other one other in labor day and you can kiss little E in between the holidays!"

    I know there are more of them. The don't squirt water on me line is getting pretty old.
