    About his solo work in comparison to Van Halen, “I won the Super Bowl seven times over with the Four Horsemen — ain’t nothin’ going to knock that mountain down.”

    Such a good quote.

    "Like Proust with a lemon cookie"...dear God, that right there in a nutshell is what DLR brought to VH.

    Not too many frontmen (if any) would come up with that.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Just based on what the interviewer wrote, you can tell that was a typical exhausting effort to pry stuff out of DLR. Dave was probably going full Diamond and throwing all of his one-liners out there with little substance in between, and then when there was finally a little nugget of real info between boisterous laughs at his own jokes and references, the interview hurriedly scribbled them down.

    Dave is gonna Dave.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Dave knows how to amuse himself, that's why he never gets bored. I think that's a great quality to have.

    The Four Horseman quote is classic Dave....For me, thatís what he brought to Van Halen...Quirky and insightful intellect. Which is why his lyrics are on another plane as compared to most songwriters in the hard rock genre.

    And he never takes himself too seriously at the end of the day....
    "People say Cream gave birth to Heavy Metal," says Baker. "If that's so, we should have had an abortion."

    The more uncomfortable and less he wants to reveal the more the Diamond routine you get. A tool to control and deflect. He will do a more personal podcast type interview like he did pre Vegas during the winter as more material rolls out.
