    Default Have You Ever Wanted to Be David Lee Roth

    I was going through some old pictures this weekend and came across these guys. I totally forgot about them as I wasn't a Links member when I took the pics. As Van Halen begins the "launch" process, this post is apropos. A little 4th of July gift from me to you.

    A cool display I found a number of years back in San Francisco -- it was an "ad" for an advertising/creative agency near my climbing gym in the Mission. They have a step by step process on how you can be like David Lee Roth. I thought it was awesome:





    It might be hard to read the captions from a pic of an old picture, so I'll caption the boxes in order:

    "The Kick"

    "Think about it. Breathe"
    "Walk to the Nearest Parking Meter."
    "Pretend it is a Mic Stand."
    "Grab the Top and Crouch Down."
    "REMEMBER, YOU ROCK."
    "Start to Jump Up."
    "As you go up start to kick your legs out."
    "This is so great."
    "As you reach the apex your (sic) legs should be straight out."
    "<--Meter"
    "You are going to start to come down."
    "Start to close your legs."
    "Get Stoked!"
    "The Ground is coming fast. Better get those feet together. {correct} {incorrect}."
    "Land it!"
    "Get High and Party."

    When I first read the title of the thread I thought " not even for a second."

    That is pretty funny though.

    Thread title reminded me, anyone have a link to that video (I saw it on youtube years ago) where a guy in a VH tribute at a bar thinks he IS David Lee Roth, and he does whatever he's heard Dave say Dave does in interviews? I think he says something about how he doesn't drink cauz Dave doesn't drink, or something. Then he rags on Sammy.

    Anyone know what the hell I'm on about? It's been AGES.

    Have I ever wanted to be Dave?? When I was about 13-16 I did. Shit yeah. You guys over 40 that say 'no' are full of shit.



    Eddie was a bigger deal to me but I'd have settled for being Dave.

    No. Especially after the latest unsolicited story I've been told.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
