    I was just lurking at the Army and I came across this thread posted by FlufferChick (in bold):

    Ok, gonna pull out the DLR bible again.

    Crazy From the Heat, page 322, Chapter 'Brass Attack'
    Dave is talking about the video he did for 'Ice Cream Man', and hmmm, there is a video for that very song on the new DVD.

    "The song was never put to a disc. It was never released. The video exists. Never released. I can't be concerned with that. It was a complete project. I always did figure, "Build it and they will come." Don't try and figure out what will make them come and build that. I have to follow my heart. Some day it will be in a movie, or on a greatest hits album; it may be on a new record. It'll exist because it's stellar.

    I have easily a hundred songs like this that I've done over the years. Everything you can think of: dance music, blues vibe, country, instrumentals, whatever. I'm always compiling and recording classic tunes and whatever will be will be. If I have to spend every penny that I own to do this, well, this is what I do. I did this when I signed up. It may cost me everything - "Ice Cream Man" cost more than a quarter of a millin dollars - but this is what I do.

    The italics are mine. Perhaps, maybe, possibly, most of the DVD is made up of songs he's been doing over the years and he added some new stuff just cuz he fuckin' felt like it.

    His own drummer said they are working on a new CD. Writing and recording. New music.

    I'm starting to sound like a fucking broken record here BUT Dave has ALWAYS done stuff like this. He continually makes his musical left hand turns or 'musical vacations' as he's called them. Remember what happens when you continually make left turns... you end up right back where you started. He always does and he will this time too.

    Instead of this continual bitching and moaning, why not just sit back and enjoy the ride. Fuck, it's not the end of the world. Not yet anyway. Enjoy Dave being Dave. For that matter, why not be grateful that the guy is even still doing what he does. He could have called it quits a long time ago. He could be hiding in his mansion and pouting because VH3 bombed. Oh wait, that's Eddie doing that.

    Now, you unhappy people - shut the fuck up and go crank 'Fair Warning' and pour yourself a JD on the rocks.

    Flame away.


    I for one couldn't agree more with this post. I think that a lot of people here can learn from it, which is why I brought it here.

    It's time to give Dave a break folks. The VH ride is obviously over. Lets at least try to enjoy this ride while we can.

    dj88, thanks for the props.

    Gee, now I get to be flamed on two boards. Thanks.

    Just trying to focus on some positives instead of all the heavy negativity going around.

    Have a great day people.

    Some of us are tired of the continual left-hand turns. That's also called going in circles without any new creative input. Maybe I hold Dave to a higher standard of excellence than this, given the wealth of great music he gave us while in VH. I blame myself for that, but now it's just cover songs, bad dancing and a fried egg mind.

    My disappointment in Dave really started when he decided to tour behind the DLR record and played nothing he recorded post '86, and it's been all down hill form there. He used to take pride in being a step above the curve. Now, to me, he seems like a parody of his younger self.

    No one says you have to like them. I for one am just tired of the endless "Dave is better than this" type stuff. Like it or not this is what Dave is. This is how he's always been. You have to take the good with the bad. The endless complaining about his new DVD isn't helping anything. I have an easy solution. If you don't like it then don't listen to it.

    Simple as that. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    No problem. Now that I understand that the only naked steaming eyes these steaming piles of shit are for are David Lee Roth's, it doesn't bother me as much. That explains why he's put them up on his website, so that he can see them anywhere he might be. They're simply not intended for us.

    By his own admission, Dave used to know enough not to let this sort of crap out the door.

    Well, I don't listen to it. It doesn't mean I can't be disappointed in him. The next time he does some music or shows that I like, I'll be right here to acknowledge it.

    You hit that one on the head Fluff.

    I know where you're coming from Mike and I'm not saying that what he's released is good (at least to us). I'm just saying that maybe it's time we all took a step back, take a nice deep breath and enjoy what we do have.
