    From an article in Amusement Business Magazine, 9/23/2002, Vol. 114, Issue 38, Section TALENT

    TALENT ROUNDUP

    David Lee Roth didn't endear himself to the village of Essex Junction, Vt., home to the Champlain Valley Exposition, during the "Sam & Dave" tour stop with another ex-Van Halen frontman, Sammy Hagar. Roth and his band continually violated the local noise ordinance during a 90-minute set. Also, "Mr. Roth ran into substantial problems at a five-star hotel. It was not a good night for any of us connected to the show," said fair GM David Grimm.

    The fair was fined $5,000 after Roth refused to conform to the 80-decibel limit at the property line. The expo is in the midst of a residential neighborhood. The noise issue attracted the attention of CNN and made the front page of the local paper. The concert, "one of the big disappointments of the summer," according to Grimm, drew 2,806 to the 10,800-capacity grandstand. Variety Attractions booked the date through ICM.

    "Hagar's sound technicians turned down the sound on two requests during his portion of the show. But the db level went up dramatically with Roth and they did not turn it down despite repeated requests. We were fined and the show didn't sell tickets. That was a double whammy," Grimm said. Surprisingly, "Rockfest 2002" -- with Dokken, Ratt, Warrant, Firehouse and LA Guns was "no problem" with decibels at 75-77 most of the night. "We've done everybody from ZZ Top to Lynyrd Skynyrd and never had this kind of sustained violation."

    Toby Keith/Montgomery Gentry grossed $300,418, the second-highest grossing concert since Champlain Valley started booking headline entertainment in 1994. Brooks & Dunn holds the record, set last year. Overall, the grandstand was a "substantial loss" this year, Grimm said.

    Country group BlackHawk has inked an exclusive worldwide booking agreement with Buddy Lee Attractions Inc.

    Wow. Asking him to turn it down....& then fining him.....SUBSTANTIAL.

    If it's too loud, you're too fucking old.

    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    Personally, I think that rocks. Playing too loud and getting yelled at for it is what rock n' roll is all about. The newer bands can still take lessons from dlr on attitude.
