    ...but why the hell is Roth such a creepy deadbeat about money?

    What's with all the lawsuits???

    He won't pay the people who work for him but he'll toss a million dollars "from his own pocket" in to his ill conceived techno-rock "H.R. Huffin'stuff" video romp?

    What's with the guy? [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    Maybe he'll hire on Hagar as financial advisor.

    I'm convinced that the problem is consistantly hitting the back of his nasal cavity. I dont care how much you make off of royalties from half ass contracts made in the 70's, sales on a book that wasnt a best seller, and a flounderous solo career, you start hittin the blow hard and heavy, its all going away pretty quick. You can spend millions a year on coke.

    Just my opinion.

    I believe that DLR's financial troubles are highly exaggerated. I haven't heard anything of this, other than in here, and that is mostly innuendo or contrived from a news event.

    Not paying someone does not mean you are insolvent or have money problems.

    well, the common misconception is the first party who goes public and has his story printed first is the one who's telling the truth, and that's not always so, as evidenced by the original split in 85, the 96 VMA fiasco, and maybe even the Slawterhouse situation. for all we know, Dave may have had legitimate complaints about services rendered (and in the Slawterhouse case, i'm not sure i'd be willing to foot the bill for that piece of shit either...), and chose not to do any negotiations through the media. no big issue there, since all that does is stir up rumors, innuendo, and these kinds of threads. Dave's automatically doing himself a favor in the legal sense by keeping his mouth shut and not responding to this in the media, let the case play out, and do the talking in court.

    Again please don't take this as an assault on the man's character!!! I adore the man and am a huge fan of his work!!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I just don't know that I'd sign up to do buisness with him anytime soon.

    This is the link that sparked my question.

    It seems pretty cut and dry form this guys perspective.

    Agent claims singer owes $50,000 in fees
    Suit cites canceled concerts, unpaid bills

    By JO ANN ZUŅIGA
    Copyright 2002 Houston Chronicle
    A Harris County tour manager and booking agent is suing singer David Lee Roth, saying the performer has reneged on paying fees.


    Roth
    Louis J. Gavrel filed the lawsuit Wednesday claiming Roth, singer of the band Van Halen before leaving in 1985 for a solo career, owes him more than $50,000 in fees.

    Gavrel stated he booked Roth, known for the remakes of You Really Got Me and California Girls, in a tour featuring Bad Company in the fall and winter of 1999.

    Gavrel claimed he was entitled to 10 percent of the gross for each performance, according to an agreement among him, Roth and Diamond Dave Touring, Inc. He estimated Roth, now 46, received about $300,000 for those performances.

    But Roth was having "cash flow problems," and Gavrel accepted as compensation the right to promote four concerts to be performed in Texas by Roth, the lawsuit stated.

    Gavrel said he agreed to the compensation because he was aware of Roth's "perilous financial condition." But Roth canceled the concerts, the lawsuit stated.

    Then Roth asked Gavrel to help in his touring for 2001. Gavrel said he agreed and booked Roth into several venues, including Kansas City, Mo. which had an artist guarantee of $75,000, the lawsuit stated. Again, Gavrel said he did not receive the agreed 10 percent.

    In early 2001, Gavrel suffered a stroke and became "somewhat physically impaired," the lawsuit stated. He then entered into an agreement with International Creative Management, Inc. authorizing it to book Roth for a period of 90 days. The fee would be split in half, with Gavrel receiving 5 percent.

    From that agreement, Roth performed in Las Vegas for $100,000 in July 2001, and again Gavrel was never paid, the lawsuit stated.

    Gavrel's lawyer, Robert Durbin, said they have contacted Roth and his attorney with a demand letter but had not received the fees.

    "Roth has revenues coming in from royalties with Van Halen. We don't know why he won't pay," Durbin said.

    Roth's attorney in California could not be reached for comment.

    The lawsuit is requesting a total of $51,200 from Roth, Diamond Dave Touring and ICM for Gavrel as well as an additional $17,081 in attorney's fees.

    Hope Dave can fix things up, a while ago he sold his Harley Davidson used on Panama.
    Maybe his lifestyle was too expensive and not earning as much money as he did is a big problem.
    We'll see.

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    I doubt Dave's looking into renting a refrigerator box for shelter, but at the same time I can easily imagine that he's not mega rich right now. He hasn't had a big selling album in over a decade, and all that time he's had the same lifestyle to maintain that he's had since day one. And didn't he play pretty small venues in 1999? The 2001 tour wasn't very big (number of shows-wise), so he probably hasn't had a really big money making tour since the Skyscraper tour. That's a long time if you've still got the same lifestyle and vices that you had when you were a double platinum rock star.

    One wrod would probably sum it all up.

    Irresponsable

    Dave still lives the careless and fancy free life style, he relys on others to take care of paying the bills and like many other rock stars and athletes and actors, he expects things to always be done for him.
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.
