    Default DLR hanging out with TRUMP

    A Glimpse Inside The Donald Trump & David Lee Roth Bromance


    http://talkingrock.net/2018/03/a-gli...roth-bromance/



    March 13, 2018 Mark Strigl

    My wife and I recently had dinner with Lonn Friend in New York and it inspired me to revisit some of the interviews I had done with him through the years. One of the interviews I came across was from December 14, 2007 when John “Ostronomy” Ostrosky and I interviewed the iconic rock journalist in front of the Staples Center in Los Angeles before a Van Halen concert. During our chat, he revealed an interesting story about 2 guys with really bad hair transplants. One of them would go on to become POTUS, and the other is one of the greatest rock frontmen of all time, who currently seems to be a bit off the radar. That’s right folks, this is Lonn Friend’s story of the time Donald J. Trump and David Lee Roth shared a table together at the Spy Bar in NYC with some “hot chicks.” My guess is this Trump/Roth hang happened in the 90s sometiory in Lonn’s words. You can also listen to him tell it on YouTube below.

    Lonn: “The funniest David Lee Roth story I have is I was at the Spy Bar in New York City, and it was after some big concert like U2 and there where all these really heavy people in the room. I think Rick Rubin was upstairs spinning. And I look down and at the V.I.P. table in the front and I see Donald Trump and David Lee Roth. Like together with two hot chicks and I couldn’t help but walk over to Dave and lean over to Dave and go “Dave, it’s Lonn from RIP magazine” and he goes “How’s it going man, good to see ya.” and I said “I have just one question, who made the call? You or Trump? How does this happen?” He didn’t even have an answer. He just smiled at me.

    In the 90s, Dave start playing casinos. So this makes sense.

    That was a bit of a dick comment, that pretty much soured the rest of the article.

    Do you think it's cool that the author ragged on both Trump's & DLR's hair?

    I may be mistaken, but I could've sworn that Howard Stern reported that Roth lost his hair in the 90's due to chemo or something. Yet even if i'm wrong, it's a petty thing to write about a guy's head of hair (and yes, I have all of my hair).

    Doesn't look all that bad:

    Kinda marks the difference between DLR and EVH; Roth hangs with Gandolfini & Trump; EVH hangs with George Lopez, and appears on Charlie Sheen's show.

    I agree that it is petty. The author didnít need to write that; just wasnít necessary. With that said, I really donít care one way or the other though. Both Trump and DLR look(ed) like that willingly. Trump didnít get his scalp squeezed and stitched together on accident or otherwise out of his control. To go through such great lengths for the sake of vanity... well, that speaks volumes. As for DLR, again, he didnít just wake up one day with bleach blonde shoulder length straw-hair.

    Agreed.

    I will say this about their meeting: you've got two men with strong personalities, and Wolf has remarked that DLR is "like the energizer bunny, who keeps going and going."...must've been an interesting meeting between both men !
