DAVID LEE ROTH RARE & UNRELEASED  

 

What has always amazed me about fan response to David Lee Roth are actually several things: when his solo albums are outstanding....literally as good as humanly possible without Van Halen, as David Lee Roth, standing on his solo own, with another band....why is it that Dave's solo albums didn't sell as much as Van Halen's?  David Lee Roth is very, very good at doing what he does.  His "thing" is almost not able to be put in words.  As the lyrics to "Experience" from "Your Filthy Little Mouth" album in 1994 state " 'it's a feeling....  Is it art or imitating?' " and the answer is "who cares?!?"  If it sounds good it works.  Now those who want to argue singers from Van Halen should be arguing about how Eddie Van Halen WANTED to change the band.  Look no further than to what Ed did outside the band and the direction the band then went.  When Ed was just doing Van Halen work with Dave fans found the signature Van Halen sound they liked.

When David Lee Roth left Eddie started expanding outside the band with Brian May, Alan Holdsworth, Patty Smyth and Scandal, then moved on to the sound Van Halen made with Sammy Hagar.  When Hagar left in the mid 90s Ed played with Rich Wyman and Thomas Dolby and Roger Waters and then we got the sound he made with Gary Cherone which was just like what he was making with others.

So the David Lee Roth sound, accompanied by a satisfied, sitting-still Edward Van Halen brought about the most steady period of hard rocking Van Halen to date.  Think about it: as Van Halen fans, in 2012, what do we have now?  Exactly that; Eddie is not playing outside the band.  Dave is back.  Wolfgang doesn't sound just like Michael Anthony on vocals but it all works.  Wolfgang sounds good enough.  David Lee Roth is sounding strong.  Alex is Alex and Eddie is Eddie. 

Stability is back.  David Lee Roth is part of the picture.  Van Halen fans are ecstatic.

  As you peer at the David Lee Roth banner above you see his name in several fonts with good reason.  First you see the Mad Magazine "David Lee Roth" which is self explanatory. The Godfather font spells "David Lee Roth" and that's because he is heading the greatest Rock and Roll band on earth so that makes David Lee Roth the Godfather of Rock.  There is his name on a 50s auto emblem; his low rider he talks about in the "motorcycle speech".  You see "David Lee Roth" looking like royalty as the King Of Rock.  You see the Jeopardy "David Lee Roth" which is obviously referring to the music video reference to David Lee Roth as a game show host.  He was a radio show host for a while, and how that didn't SOAR is beyond me.  I know, this tends to ramble (" 'tends?' ") on and on...  Then we see him playing Intellivision "David Lee Roth" and I don't know why but it was from "back in the day".  There's the reference to Pink Floyd "David Lee Roth" which he talked about before "Ice Cream Man" every night on the '07-'08 tour.  You see the party "David Lee Roth" as he says in "Rage Beyond The Stage : Sammy Hagar vs. David Lee Roth," "Sam throws a party - I am the party." There is the Broadway font spelling "David Lee Roth" as he is the show man happiest on stage, and finally there's the Star Trek "David Lee Roth" which beckons David Lee Roth and Van Halen to "boldly go where no man has gone before."
