Happy Birthday David Lee Roth
Thu Oct 10, 2013 7:32 am
  • 59 today.

    For you youngsters who never heard of him he was the original and current lead singer for the hughly popular rock group "Van Halen". After some problems within the band he left them for several years and was replaced by another great Sammy Hagar. Hagar was with them from 1985-1996. David Lee Roth returned to them in 2003.

    None of this bothered Van Halen's success as they continue to this day to be succesful in the market place.

    Hippy Birdy DLR, and I hope you get your glazed doughnut. (a snip from his first singles album).

  • He's a top 5 front man, all-time, IMO. He's everything you want in a front man. He's also a very interesting dude. I don't care to much for Van Halen's music. But, I'll always listen to him being interviewed on NPR, O n A, Howard, wherever. Fascinating man.

    He's making some very slick short films in Japan, oddly enough. I'm sure anyone can find them.

  • Defining him as a 'front man' is perfect. He isn't that great of a singer but he's a helluva showman.

  • That's the only way to define Aros as well; frontman. Be it on stage or for Seahawks.net.

    Mark's definitely Sammy Haggar.

  • If only David Lee Roth could have warned that idiot from Glee that he was not a real rockstar and should avoid partying like one... he might still be wokring on that crappy show.


    Anybody with an hour or two of traffic to sit through should check out his episode of the joe rogan experience; Roth is cool as hell! Lives in Japan and just goes about town and doesn't speak japanese or even care.

  • MUCH more importantly, happy birthday to John Lennon yesterday. Would've been 73.

    :13: Saw VH right after their 2nd album came out and then again with Sammy a number of years later. Both were quite good shows.

  • Never been a fan of Hagar, solo or with Van Halen. To me DLR is the only frontman of the band.
