These are photos of a man I want performing CPR on me after I, say, fall down a staircase or get knocked out in a barfight.

Wow, the quality on some of these is terrible.


Terriblely rock-an-roll! Yeaah!

Figures one of the first photos on Roth's site is a crotch shot of himself.

That man sure loves his own dick.

bwg: That man sure loves his own dick.

Well, everybody knows that.

What's less well-known is his odd fascination with Sammy Hagar's.

Did someone call Dr. Roxso? (warning, Dethklok, NSFanyone).

Well, to be fair, what man doesn't? Uh, love their own, not David Lee Roth's, I mean... oh never mind.

The hair color is different of course, but my friend Stephanie bears some resemblance to Diamond Dave.

I have learned from the Wikipedia that his name is Dr. Rockzo. Carry on.

I always thought it was, and still think it should be, "Dr. Roxxo", because that's the most butt rock way to spell it. "X" is a very butt rock letter (e.g. Trixter, Kix, Vixen, etc.), extraneous double consonants are very butt rock as well (e.g. Enuff Z'nuff, Ratt, Dokken, etc.) and creative misspellings are also butt rock (Motley Crue, Stryper, etc.). The center where all three overlap in the Venn diagram of butt rock is the ultimate.

the letter X - check
doubled-consonant - yep
creative misspelling - righty-o

Damn. Until now, I thought the bassist from Mötley Crüe was the guy who played Edward Penishands.

Man. This is a pretty great "Yeah, I'm a world famous guitarist with a ton of hit singles. Life is good" shot. Stripped of the chixx and the guitar and the stage and.. just look at the smile on EVH!

And the dirty sneaks. VELCRO!

It's a real shame he discovered the metal umlaut too late. He could have been Nïkkï Sïxx - a name so metal it would have broken time.

Shockingly low on Michael Anthony photos. *sigh* He was always "the cute one" in my mind...

I've been told by my VH loving friend that this is a pic of DLR with Stevie Nicks and Bonnie Raitt.

That raises too many questions in my addled mind, so I shall return to my boring life.

sleevener: "One of my dearest friends (who is Jewish) once told me a funny thing his wife said: "David Lee Roth.... now there's a Jew who knows who he is.""

Jewish boys like me had their pick of scientists and classical musicians to idolize. Rock stars not so much.

Hashem yevarech otcha, Mr. Roth.

Just for the record, CPR is for when someone is dead.

In another universe, I borrowed my roommate's black 1966 Chevelle Super Sport street rod to go to the supermarket. My battered Toyota was in the shop. Starting it up, Van Halen's "Runnin' with the Devil" was mid-track at 140 dBs. Amused, I went with it. Over the course of the 3/4 of a mile and the 2 stoplights between home and the store, I was propositioned 3 times. Up until then, I don't think I really fully understood the Chevelle or Van Halen.

I have never seen a picture of Eddie Van Halen in which he looked anything less than happy as a pig in shit. He always looks like he's completely aware of how good he has it and he loves every minute of it. It's both refreshing and frustrating at the same time.

It's refreshing because the tortured artist is a pretty overdone cliche. It's frustrating when he's playing some incredibly fast, innovative and unspeakably cool riff on his guitar and he just looks up with a big toothy grin and winks and you think, "you bastard, how can you make it look so goddamned easy!"

In another life, I performed that manouvre thousands of times, except that my car was never a Chevelle. I can confidently say that it was the Chevelle, and not the blaring Van Halen, that prompted the result you experienced. Either that or your mullet was way better than mine (and mine was pretty great - more hockey hair than a true mullet, but still).

I have to say, I saw VH back in '78 at a Day on the Green (day time outdoor concert at the Oakland Coliseum), and they absolutely stole the show. And this was a concert that included the 1978 versions of Aerosmith and AC/DC. Van Halen's set was just incredible -- they played third, IIRC, and they got called out for two encores and played every song they'd released and half the songs from their second album, which had yet to be released. They just...owned that place. Now, I don't have a lot of love for their later stuff, and my tastes have (thankfully) evolved at least a bit, but those first two albums were truly groundbreaking rock albums in a genre that was stale when they debuted. So God bless David Lee Roth, EVH, his brother, and Michael Anthony: they kicked ass when I was 17, when it mattered. :-) I think these photos prove that point, in all their Spandex glory.

'struth. Was there ever anybody else who looked happier to be a rock god that Eddie? If there was, I never saw him.

Aside - I haven't examined all the photos and certainly won't, but so far no matter which band member you hover your cursor over, the pop-up tooltip says "David Lee Roth." DLR wins internet, p0wns the pop-up tooltip.

Yep...high school meant that if you had a Chevelle and Van Halen, you pretty much got to see my cooter. Running a little hot tonight indeed. Thanks for the post!
