David Lee Roth is going to be the substitute drive-time DJ on a Boston radio station next week. Here's the article
Van Halen has been discussed in here before, mostly in the original classic rock bracket contest, but reading this just made me reflect on what I always felt was a huge rock music disapointment.
Original Van Halen was such an outstanding band, both in the records they made AND the arena shows they put on. A combination of great musicianship, unique vocals, great songs AND charisma out the wazoo.
Van Hagar produced some quality rock, but they certainly lacked the mystique and charisma of the original band.
The other incarnation (with the guy from Extreme) was a joke.
Anyway, it's so disappointing that even as middle-aged men, Roth and the VH bros still hate each other SO MUCH that they can't get their stuff together and join forces... for their fans AND for their pocketbooks (can you imagine how much an VH w/ DLR concert tour would GROSS?)
Instead, Diamon Dave will be reading ads for Dunkin Donuts and tossing to the weather and traffic reporters on ZLX next week.
