David Lee Roth
It's hard to believe, but David Lee Roth's 'Eat 'Em and Smile' is more than 25 years old -- and although Diamond Dave is back with Van Halen promoting the band's latest album, 'A Different Kind of Truth,' plenty of fans still have fond memories of Roth's full-length solo debut. One such fan is guitarist Steve Vai, who played on the record, and shared some stories about the 'Smile' era during a recent interview.
That's the skinny straight from VH frontman David Lee Roth, who recorded a video to explain the recent events -- in his own words.
But throwing trash onstage during a Van Halen show? That’s a no-no in the eyes of singer Diamond Dave, who recently singled out a fan for tossing rubbish in Roth's direction at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg.
One of the highlights of Van Halen’s 2007 reunion tour was David Lee Roth's acoustic storytelling stroll through the classic ‘Ice Cream Man,’ the spirit of which seems to have found its way to Van Halen's new album in the form of ‘Stay Frosty.’ And from recent reports, the acoustic vibes won’t end there for Diamond Dave.
Ex-Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach knows how true that lyric is, too, and he recently shared his vivid memory of when a Jack Daniels-fueled Roth wasted little time in getting under the skin of Guns N' Roses leader Axl Rose.
