    WELLAH WELLAH WELLAH...YEZZ YEZZ YEZZ...Aw ReeP!!

    What do y'all think of DLR cookin' up thiz ol' Sonny Terry/Brownie McGhee toon?? Ize can't think of a better blues since Page/Plant revved up,"My Bucket's Got A Hole In It." Just a tremendous offering by the Soul Brother #2!! Blow your harmonica, son...I recently heard a quick version Dave layed down (along with the mighty, mighty Laughing Last Band) on Howard Stern. Can ya diggit??

    I dig the versions from the BBQ video and the other Rodeo radio gigs fo' sho'!! Roth iz such a great, great blues singer. Vocals like a hurricane bein' forced thru a straw!! It's like hearing Jim Dandy Mangrum sing Happy Hooker or Robert Plant sing an' ol' Bukka White blues or Jim Morrison workin' up,"Roadhouse Blues." ALL HELL YEAH!!!!!!

    Well, welcome to Tobacco Road, baby!!

    It's like a thunderbolt in your cheerios!!

    Sho' Nuff' Ize Do!!

    It's Love Time, baby!!

    Original title of this toon is,"When It's Love Time," and it was recorded by Terry/McGhee for the Savoy record label on 10-3-1955. Terry and McGhee hated each other at the end of their careers, too...wouldn't even speak to each other offstage after a certain point. Ironic?

    The funny part is, Loons is a whitebread Irish-Swede accountant from Bennington, New Hampshire. You gotta love the internet.

    Naw, Loons, Dave's covers suck. Except the Halen-sponsored tracks. And maybe...MAYBE...his revised version of Ice Cream Man on an otherwise dismal album (but still, you gotta wonder about the creative juices when you're covering covers).

    Well, I don't know what the fuck that was all about. And something tells me I just don't care.

    And what the fuck is a BBQ video?

    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

    Off of Dave's Backyard BBQ I only like the ELO cover and the new song "Flex".

    The rest is truly crap. Still love Dave, but that thing is embarassing.
    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!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    I heard dave do this one on a live radio show and it was not that bad. Everything else I hear of of the BBQ is garbage especially Baker Street.
