David Lee Roth's Radio Show

I listened to about 10 minutes of it. His "special guest" is his 86 year old uncle. He is no Ben Stern.

And the bumpers are Van Halen songs. I feel like I'm in a time warp.

Will anyone listen to this show?

Btw Howard is on Larry King Thursday night and he is supposedly engaged.

someone posted this on a newspaper message board, lol

"The David Lee Roth show is 100% train wreck. I knew it would suck. I just didn't think this much. Howard must be roaring with laughter this morning.

Every Sirius radio on the east coast will be sold out by lunch time if no one puts a stop to this. "


"Dave, go back to being an EMT. I saw you live in the summer of 2002 and you were a washed up aging (and bald with comb-over) rocker that was completely pathetic on stage trying to recapture your 80's glory. Now after 1/2 a morning on the radio you're a washed up hack of a radio host.

He got a 4 year contract? I bet most of the markets dump him by June (though probably sooner)."


"Oh jeez the best part was when he was interviewing his uncle, then he began coughing up a lung. I almost vomited in my car so I switched to WBOS to hear some music and no talk."

I didn't listen, and I don't intend to. I don't think it will work.

although the thought of listening to this train wreck is "almost" appealing.

I haven't heard the new show yet, but everytime I hear David Lee Roth, I wonder if he actively has drugs in his system, or if he is suffering from the residual effects of the drugs.

I forgot to listen yesterday, but how bad can it be, he played "Vertigo" (but only once):

Regardless of what you think of him or what he has turned into, he did front the greatest rock band from the late 80's to mid 90's.

While I won't argue the premise (have been a big =VH= fan since I heard Runnin' With the Devil as a young lad), I'll argue the timeline.
DLR left Van Halen circa 1985. So its like 1977-1985.
He was the quintessential hard rock front man of the time. Lots of 80's singers (especially in th LA scene) borrowed a lot of their act from Diamond Dave.

Van Halen > Van Hagar

DLR sounds like a fun guy, but I wouldn't want to listen to him on the radio

While the earlier material with Roth is indeed classic, I liked the Hagar era a lot. Some excellent stuff there.
