    Default Vintage DLR related auction item(?)

    A friend directed my attention to this item on liveleak.com, (where they source 'The Age' for the following):

    "An early copy of David Lee Roth performing Runnin' with the Devil has been sold for US$157,000 at a Sothebys Auction recently. The cassette contains a rare copy of David performing the mega-hit tune on a Casio CZ-101 keyboard before he went on to join the popular 80's band Van Halen. The winning bid was acquired by a longtime U.S. fan."

    Could this mean that DLR had written the lyrics and melody to RWTD before joining VH?

    Could that auction winning "fan" be amongst us?

    I didn't know DLR played the keyboards at all, so perhaps the entire story is a fabrication?


    P.S. Mods, feel free to move this to the DLR forum if need be.

    Fake.

    The DLR vocals to that track were released to the Internet a couple years ago. So someone put it to a bad keyboard track.

    Awesome - Dave got the CZ-101 when it came out in '84, then went back in time over 10 years to record this! I knew there was something special about him.

    He can play keys, but I have no idea how well. Have seen pics on here of him playing drums as well, but again he could have been fucking around.

    I can only assume that there is a lot of down time on tour and plenty of time to dabble on different instruments.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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