    Default What's The Point Of The David Lee Roth Show?

    About a month ago, David Lee Roth said that he would be convening with Van Halen, for the purposes of discussing what the band's future would look like. And in all of this, he hinted that Van Halen would be issuing all new music.

    "Check back to the DLR website for any and all updates!"

    Like an idiot, I confess that I set my personal web browser's homepage to DLR's site, knowing that I would not check the site for any other reason - wanting to get the latest in Van Halen news - amidst the promise of new Van Halen music.

    What's up with this guy?

    When I was a kid, had you told me that there would come a mass rollout of the internet - along with the ability to hear Roth elucidate on various topics...wow!

    I would expect for him to tell us the background behind each of Van Halen's songs; an ongoing discussion of his favorite musical influences, aspirations; what it was like working with Vai, and the detail behind the Skyscraper album cover.

    WTF?

    About a month ago, he drops a bombshell of the likelihood of new music - especially after October's stunt, you think he'd have been a little cautious of how he delivers future news.

    A couple of shows ago, he talked about saliva. Today, he apparently is going on about "the dancefloor."

    What's up with this guy? What sane person would listen to this crap?

    He did go into influences and all things VH with his original channel. This is one where he just goes into whatever he wants.

    And now stay tuned for the swan dive into the toilet that this thread will take.

    Dude. You have to stop putting weight on any band member’s promises of forthcoming hopes of activity.

    Is there a thing in the last 15 years that backs your investment in actual delivery of follow through?

    David Lee Roth is a bullshit artist. His masterpieces belong in the Louvre. He's never going to just straight up tell you what you want to hear. Its always going to be some rambling bullshit that he thinks is clever. I'm surprised there are still Van Halen fans out there that do not know this by now.

    I have absolutely zero interest in anything he does outside of Van Halen.

    I see the Roth Show as a means for a rich and lonely middle aged man to fill his days up.

    I’ll always defend DLR’s work in VH, but outside of that he’s on his own. I don’t follow his podcasts or any other bullshit like that. Hats off to anyone that does.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of Dave outside of Van Halen.

    His schtick and voice combined with Ed's guitar is a legendary combo but on his own he's a fucking goofball.

    David Lee is goofier than a three peckered billie goat! But that's his shit. He makes me laugh. Love him with Van Halen though. He's like that odd uncle that actually rolls up every 5th year for a get together or wedding etc. And everyone is fired up like fat kids at a candy store. Then he hops a plane and leaves and everyone says, "damn I'm glad he rolled up this year." Out.
