    Default Just a Gigalo!

    Played this on the tube at the gym today. Must have had it on the 80's station. Such a goofy, fun video by Dave. I catch the original on Sirius every now and then on the oldies channel. Dave was actually pretty faithful to that version.

    In retrospect, it would have been better for VH if that EP had flopped.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    Who knows. I really think it was a good effort by Dave to get some of the goofiness out of him prior to the next VH album. Pretty Woman is one thing, Ed would have never gone for California girls or just a Gigalo. Dave was ready to go back to guitar-driven music. That band was just destined to implode. IMO.

    I think things played out exactly as they were meant to....
    VH did fine, and so did Dave. At least out of the gate and for a few years afterward. I liked some of Roth's solo EP stuff at the time. Not sure that Ed or the guys would've or wanted to put up with the persona for much longer?

    But regardless, I thought Dave's solo career (for a while) was fun and funny stuff, with some cool music. I loved the videos! Having said that, some of my favorite tunes by him are ones like Damn Good, Tell the Truth, etc.... I like the more 'mature' stuff as well as the 'rock out with your cock out' material. And VH also did that sort of growing up angle very well with Sammy in a few of their collaborations.
