    Default No Holds Bar-B-Que

    Watched it the other day for the first time in a while, and I still love it and think it's a great piece of work. Love all the patriotic stuff given the timeline, in Dave's own comedic way.

    I do think it would've been better received, though, if it wasn't so repetitive and incestuous. Tighten it up. "'How About a Little Fire' Scarecrow?" is bad ass for a novelty-type tune (and how about that chorus--"Honeybabysweetiedoll" anyone?), but there's no need for 4-5 versions of it. Two is fine, and maybe the second one have a montage of the dance party and underwater scene instead of both. A lot of that acoustic stuff like "Limehouse Blues" could've been shorter, too.

    And more of those tunes should've been on his "Diamond Dave" album, too (and replaced others), and he should've marketed them together. Roth on...

    Such a strange (eccentric?) piece of work even for Dave. I remember reading a review somewhere. It referred to the piece by saying, "The reason for its release is unclear."

    Cocaine is a helluva drug.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Haha, that comment is hilarious!
    I've never watched it or looked it up. Might've seen a snippet along the way in one of those Sam and Dave docu/feud clips.. I'm good.

    Even when the music is good, DLR is out of his mind tripping.

    Here you go, this clip will show you all you need to know...it is two hours of this poorly edited, free form nonsense. There are good moments, but they are WAY too far and few between.

    Loads of free time
    Plus lots of disposable money
    Plus lots of cocaine
    Equals

    You've been warned, you will want the time back if you watch it.

    I hope you didn't put that up for my benefit! Haha.
    His routine is well known, and I did sit through about 5 minutes of a Roth Show episode or two... Cue the Benny Hill theme song..
