    There is a Melbourne trashy newspaper called the 'Herald Sun'. My housemate subscribes to it for the sports section.

    A section in last Sunday's edition called 'Style Police' - which is as I understand it, criticisms of celebtities dress sense and appearances, featured the likes of Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez. And as a token male inclusion, the one and only Diamond David Lee Roth! (He may well be twice the age of everyone else featured!)

    They showed him dressed in all black leather and black sunglasses with some sort of ridiculous floral looking scarf. Truth be told, it was the best looking recent picture I have seen of Dave in a long time. Even his hair didn't look so bad.

    I know this wasn't positive press for DLR, but I was pleased to see that Australia has not forgotten Van Halen - or at least the band's former members anyway.

    If anyone has actually read this far, the text that accompanied the picture reads as follows:

    DAVID LEE ROTH

    CRIME: Old rockers never die

    SENTENCE: Good-behavior bond (perhaps he's in need of a lie down).

    And they add:

    "Give us strength to accept the things we cannot change - we think the fashion gods were talking about semi-tragic '80s rock stars. Black leather pants, zipped to the navel jacket, museum quality scarf and - oh lordy - the blonde locks."

    I thought Dave's get-up wasn't too bad. It's not like he wears clothes from the 'Jump' and 'Pananma' videos. Why doesn't these mags make fun of the rappers and their hats on crooked and their baggy pants?

    Yeah the newspaper picture was obviously taken backstage at the MTV awards.

    In Dave's defence, he did look much better when posing for this particular picture than he did next to Sam in the shot above.

    Whoever thinks black leather is out of style on hard rock musicians is more out of touch than David Lee Roth ever was. For gods sake, they'll be making fun of him for having a real drummer soon.
