    Dave Interviews

    Is this a new vintage interview here? I've never seen it before. Dave, in classic form. This is exactly how I remember him from my youth.



    At Sunset was an after hours club/salon which was home to many artists and celebrities… Everyone from John Belushi to David Lee Roth to Jean-Michel Basquiat to studio heads, to celebrities of all kind would show up!

    These two little videos are the only footage i know of that documented this time in 1982 in Los Angeles on the Sunset Strip. Today the same property is Dukes restaurant. Hope you enjoy this vintage footage.

    Wow, is he high or drunk or both?

    I vote both.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Speaking of interviews, Does anyone know where I can get a recording of Dave on the Allan Handelman Show during the release of the DLR BAND album?

    Almost everything Dave said there I used to have on tape but it wasn't from this interview. He got a lot of mileage out of his jokes and one-liners back then.

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    No doubt, but even the likes of Robin Williams and Billy Crystal and Richard Pryor told the same jokes, same lines and same one-liners every night on a tour of the country. So nothing wrong with that. It is the height that the jokes and style reached and Dave reached to the top in those days and he was one of the best and most distinctive performance artists of all-time because of it. Dave just overflowed with mojo and his imprint is just purely indelible even all these years later. It is not like Bob Hope where every thing seems dated. That interview of Dave's above is just timeless. Mad respect to Diamond Dave!!!
