    Default Yet another fun new David Lee Roth interview!



    Diamond David Lee Roth talks about Van Halen, his Vegas residency, being the duke of larceny, how reggae music moves him, getting his instrument ready, and the responsibility he feels being the soundtrack to our lives, and his promise to deliver like no one else can.

    You’re right, that was a fun interview.

     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    THIS is the Dave that was my hero! More great quotes I'll need to jot down. Somehow he's better when there's a foil to give him focus and keep him on track, and whoever that guy is on The Roth Show ain't it.

    My one critique of this one is the gushing the interviewer does at the end. You make yourself sound small time or like an insecure putz when you do that. That said, the guy's career has clearly gone much further than mine ever did.

    Cool interview.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    That was like old school DLR, with all the wit.

    I think that was the best one yet.

    At least, Dave sounds like he's still having a good time.
