    Default Is David Lee Roth showing the signs of early stage dementia

    Am I the only one who thinks Dave has really been pushing the limits of sanity? Now listen, I understand part of his whole "thing" is to be a little off center and say some outlandish/humorous/witty things. But parts of his demeanor, especially in the videos that are being released, show the early signs of mental illness/alzheimer's/parkinson's/dementia

    Points in Support of My Theory

    1) He constantly laughs uncontrollably at his own jokes
    2) He convulses and twists and turns like he is having a seizure even when he is just sitting down singing an acoustic song.
    3) He seems to never be able to actually address ANYTHING directly, and often times appears to be completely out of touch with reality
    4) He has vocal "spasms", that emit strange noises and that look like they are outside of his control when he is singing on the downtown sessions

    Does anyone else think this is something to worry about?

    I'm not TROLLING why does everyone keep calling me that. How can you watch the videos of him and not be concerned. Anyone with even a cursory understanding of psychology would be concerned.

    It seems to me that if a thread is not about a song on the new album, or "howard stern" mentioning the band, it gets closed.

    If I remember correctly, the Roth family always called this "Monkey Hour" since he was a child....

    I kind of do agree with #1 though. He does seem to be the only one laughing at he own jokes...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney
