    Default DLR and Jim Dandy-Aware me

    VH-the early years is on netflix as an instant watch. Iv'e been checking it out and I know most of it. It is an interesting documentary with all the comments by former friends and band mates.

    the only thing that really was original to me was the comparison's between early DLR and Jim Dandy from Black Oak Arkansas....I had never heard of that before. they didn't really show a whole lot of footage to compare things with but some of them implied that dave basically stold JD's act......

    I dont' know anythign about this so fill me in on any info you guys might have come across concerning this.

    thanks in advance.

    Yeah, they look similar but JD seems gayer and can't sing for shit, at least in that clip.

    Completely agreed, talk about nasty. I wonder how many in the front row went home with VD.

    Creem magazine used to compare DLR to Jim Dandy in its typcial sarcastic way back in the late 70s and early 80s. I remember wondering who the hell that was...

    But for now, we are going to talk about Black Oak Arkansas. And in particular, we are going to talk about one Jim Dandy Mangrum. To set this up, I kindly ask you direct your attention to this video:

    The first thing I've gotta point out is that were it not for Jim Dandy Mangrum could a guy like David Lee Roth ever even have existed? With his bare chest, waist length hair, and crotch hugging spandex, Jim Dandy practically created the prototype for Diamond Dave and the rest of the glam-rock bad boys that "taught us how to love" in the eighties.

    The second noteworthy thing about BOA, however, is the freaking band. The three-pronged guitar attack fronting these guys is on the surface pretty much your classic southern rock sort of deal. What set BOA apart however was the rhythm section, and in particular Tommy "Dork" Aldridge's amazing double bass drumming.

    DLR took a lot from JD's act and then made it his own. And as funny as this is to write, DLR was a MUCH better singer than Jim Dandy, I mean not even in the same hemisphere.

    DLR kind of combined JD, Plant and Louis Prima to make his stage presence.

    Just my $0.02.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    Jim Dandy --that is some lead "Singer." Can't hit a note.

    DLR blows this guy away, although I do see influence on Dave's stage presence, having never seen a video of these guys until now. From a distance you would think its Dave!

    Back in the early 80's my friend had a BOA record. Don't recall the title, but remember it had a zipper on the front cover in the fly of pair pair of jeans you could actually unzip. We used to play it once in a while and make fun of the way he sounded like a drunk crow gagging on a piece of glass.

    I seem to recall Robert Plant sported that same look, except it was skin tight jeans rather than spandex.

    it's funny to me that I never heard of this guy....I mean NEVER let alone in comparisone to DLR. You always hear about Ed and Clapton but never about this guy...it was just strange to me.

    I never heard of him until the Early Years DVD came out and he was mentioned on there.

    I do concur that DLR is a much better singer than this dude, as well as better songwriter and also better looking.

    But Jim Dandy gayer than DLR, no. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    Thing is, Jim Dandy actually came out of the closet I believe in the end.

    DLR hasn't...yet.
