    What do you think DDLS stands for? Is it Drop Dead Legs? Why would he have a switch dedicated to that if they aren't playing it? Things that make you go HMMMM

    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

    Diamond Dave is the Lead Singer.

    If he steps on it, it switches to SHLS. When it blows a fuse it defaults to GCLS.

    In the light of Dave's predilection for on-stage sword-dancing (remember the Panama video?), Ed's aversion to such antics and the technological advancements of the last twenty years, I have every confidence that the acronym stands for "Detonate Dave's Light Saber" - you know, for when DLR just gets too flamin' annoying..!

    My guess would be that is stands for Digital Delay Lead Switch.

    When the switch is on the delay operates normally, switch it off and only the echo signal puts out.


    Though Diamond Dave Lead Singer is a helluva lot funnier!
    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
