    Default Vegas show....

    Could David Lee Roth Do a Vegas Show?
    The David Lee Roth rumor mill is churning. On the heels of our rumor about John 5 and David Lee Roth recording (link), comes the news DLR may be in talks for a Vegas show.

    Eddie Trunk hosts a show on satellite radio and said that he heard from a promoter about a possible David Lee Roth Vegas show with Vince Neil. The details are a bit sketchy, but it sounded like there may be a backing band and there were three legendary singers involved. Vince, Roth, and another to be named later.

    Each singer would choose six songs and perform them with the backing band for the crowd. Then each singer would come back for an All-star like finale performing a few songs together.

    Could this be something that DLR does when the Van Halen gravy train dries up...if it hasn't already? Will this news push Van Halen into doing something shortly? It is clear that Diamond Dave is not comfortable sitting around doing nothing. I am hoping for a Van Halen tour this fall or winter. But if that doesn't pan out, I will move to Vegas and learn to be an acrobat for the inevitable Cirque du Rock with Vince Neil.

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

    Original story from Eddie Trunk show.

    He said that he (Trunk) was in Las Vegas 2 weekends ago and heard from a reliable source that a promoter was trying to get a Vegas show going with Dave, Vince Neil and another singer (i can't remember for the life of me who) all sharing the same backing band. The plan would be for each singer to do about 6 songs and then all come back at the end to perform together. He went on to say that one of the singers involved had actually had discussions but he wouldn't say who. He hinted that it wasn't Roth because Roth is still laying low in hopes of Van Halen doing something. He said that he couldn't see Roth pursuing anything until he is out of Van Halen so as not to piss Eddie off, and since he has still been quiet, one can only assume that he is in Van Halen.
    He didn't say it, but it would make the most sense that Vince would have had the discussions considering he owns his own night club in Vegas. He didn't report on who the backing band would supposedly be. I was hoping someone else may have heard this so i can find out who that 3rd singer was that was floated.
    Trunk also played Women in Love and commented on how it is still as fresh today as it was then. He said that very few artists' music hold up over the test of time like Led Zep, but that Van Halen does, especially the first few albums.

    I think I'm safe in the assumption that Van Halen, Inc., is comprised of three shareholders, and they all have the same last name.

    I'm guessing Dave is in Van Halen much the same as the guy who dresses in the clown suit is "in" McDonald's.

    Interesting to say the least.

    Let's hope for VH to do something really soon. (not holding breath)

    Roth did Vegas once with mixed results.

    Further, I have never viewed Roth as a "let's share the stage and jam together" kind of a guy. He barely wants to have the band in the spotlight, let alone two other lead singers.

    However, if and when the fork is finally stuck in the VH turkey, I could see him on a multi-artist bill doing a set by himself.

    His show was not universally well received, but I like it.

    Nothing earth shattering, but it was different and he had some really good players with him.
