    Default David Lee Roth... Is playing hurt.

    Just to be clear, I mean "playing" in the athletic sense; not in the "he's faking" sense. Here's the quote, from Buzzfeed's "The Last Rock Star: David Lee Roth Will Not Go Quietly" by Steve Kandell:

    "Even a casual music fan might feel intimately familiar with Eddie Van Halen’s recent medical chart: oral cancer, hip replacement. Meanwhile, David Lee Roth has been quietly paying the price for a lifetime of hard landings. He’s undergone two major lower back surgeries in recent years. The office chair is missing its right armrest — Roth also had his shoulder reattached in four places and needed to be able to sleep in the chair when it was too uncomfortable to lie on his back.

    “See that?” He points to a framed picture of Elvis Presley mounted on the wall just a foot or two off the floor, between two open French windows. “I had to move that down because I slept with my head against that wall. Dog is here, dog watches door.”

    But Roth doesn’t seem fragile — he barely has crow’s-feet," etc.

    Steven Kandell's full article for Buzzfeed is well-worth a read, in my opinion. It gets beyond the "Diamond Dave" persona.

    P.S. The Japanese performances were, imo, the best performances by the Van Halen band since the turn of the new millennium, despite the decreased physicality. To my ear, the band is the tightest it's been since '95 or '98.

    Perfectly fine for Dave to take it easy with jumps and kicks.It's unfamiliar turf and a small stage and what the hell, he's earned the right to take it easy.

    Dave and Ed should just do the show with wigs on.

    Dave should drop down to his old register.
