    Default DLR and Will Smith

    Has anyone ever made a comparison between David Lee Roth and Will Smith? California Girls came on the radio today, and during the chorus, I couldn't help but laugh at DLR yelping, squealing, chirping, and doing whatever else he does. It reminded me of Will Smith. You all remember "Getting Jiggy With It" and some other of his rap ditties. He does all those woo hoo's, ha ha's, and the such. I know I've heard mocks of what Dave would sound like singing Sam-era songs. It'd be funny to hear a fake duet between DLR and WS (or the real thing for that matter).

    P.S. I love DLR and as a fan I've always found a lot of humor in his style. It's part of who he is. Just don't take this as a "Dave's a joke and sucks" thread.

    no you're right, there is definately a sense of humour and light heartedness to Dave...hell, one of the historians on this board may correct me but didn't he "open" some of the early tours with VH with his own stand up routine?

    As for the collaborative jem that would be mr Jiggy and the Diamond One? I'd buy it...but then again, I've been known to scour ebay for Ed and Al feces.

    Dave is definitly better...than Will Smith!! Although, didn't Dave say in his book that he is a black man trapped in a white man's body? Whoa, this could turn into some heavy Outer Limits/Twilight zone shit ya know?

    Big difference......Will Smith had success in all his ventures outside of music.


    But I'll take Eat'em and Smile over anything Will Smith ever released.
