    Default Sebastian Bach's David Lee Roth Story

    Cool story
    Remember talking about it here years ago.

    Http://ow.ly/1JvNbz
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    I remember when Bach was the big rumor to replace Sammy in the band.

    Yeah, but I think that was more Sebastian saying to everyone "I want to be the next Van Halen singer" than anything from Van Halen.

    The guy can wail, but he isn't a songwriter and can you see Ed and Al putting up with that guy? He is like Roth, but much more annoying without being as clever.

    Edit: the link takes me to a bunch of WWE videos for some reason.
    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!

    Yep, Bach is a child. Don't see any band ever putting up with him.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    Cool story....yeah it was Bach after Sammy and there was some rumors of David coverdale being in the band after cherone and according to coverdale in an interview they wrote and recorded close to 20 songs but he later denied it.
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    Yeah, I was kinda rooting for the Coverdale thing to happen, even though he's another ass. It would have been a cool Led Halen type of thing, and they would have rocked Slow and Easy in concert! They never would have gotten along, though.

    Yeah agreed. Seems like coverdale can't get along with anybody. It would have been really cool though.

    He (bach)is totally annoying you got that right. You figure he would mature with age but he really does seem like a jerk in interviews I saw him in. I cannot access your link here though..

    Link doesn't work for me.

    Is this the one?

    Or this one?

    Bach seems pretty cool in the second one to me.

    I'm off all week, and this morning, while taking a break from making an instrumental track to "Let It Be" for my daughter, I decided to start poring through my VH magazine collection. I read a few articles from a couple old mags and the new one from the latest Classic Rock and I said to myself, "Man, Dave is an insecure prick." Then, I get on the links and see this thread.

    Bas' story is entirely believable. From what I've always deduced, even while he was with Van Halen, he was basically a complete narcissist. Around the time of this story, Van Halen - minus Dave and plus Sammy - was bigger than ever*, while Dave's stock was flagging. Heck, G'N'R - and perhaps even Skid Row - were bigger around that time than Diamond Dave. That had to be quite a shot to his pride.

    --- --- ---

    I really love where Dave is now mentally. He is still The Show, but he seems to realize the value of his relationship with Eddie and Al, more so than he ever did when he was with Van Halen the first time. Growing up can do that to you.

    "The shit I read on this site." -- Dave's Dreidel (Nov 6th, 2013)

    "Don't ever confuse talent with fame." -- Bob Lefsetz

    "There's very little greatness in this world, but in the crucible of quality there's a special corner reserved for Van Halen." -- Bob Lefsetz

    His nickname among concert security professionals in the DC area is "Diamond Dick".

    I have always been a big DLR fan, but I can only imagine how big a pain in the ass that guy is.
