DAVID LEE ROTH SPOTTED DINING WITH 16 “BEAUTIFUL GIRLS”
The New York Post’s Page Six reports:
Van Halen rocker David Lee Roth turned heads in LA when he recently showed up at the Standard Hollywood escorted by no less than “16 beautiful women” spies said.
The singer, 62, and his harem “took up the entire main booth” at Bryan Rabin and Adam Bravin’s weekly Giorgio’s party at the hotel’s club Mmhmmm.
Star-struck clubgoers, including Alicia Silverstone, Garcelle Beauvais and Michele Hicks, all “took a moment to pay homage to the living rock god.” Then, “Roth danced all night to Giorgio’s annual Michael Jackson tribute.”
Van Halen’s ex-manager Noel E. Monk just penned a tell-all, prompting Roth to tweet answers to all potential questions posed by journalists about the tome: “Mr. Roth’s responses are as follows: Answer No. 1: Yes. Answer No. 2: Probably. Answer No. 3: My lawyer says I can’t remember. Final response: ‘What a long great trip it’s been, stay frosty.’ ”
DLR will always be a celebrity! Guys like him just give off that kind of vibe, and it doesn’t matter how old they get. He may not be able to sing like he did back in the day, but he is still the ultimate front man, the one that every other rock front man will be compared to. Good for him!
Roth lives a party life and seems to have fun doing it. Good for him. I think he’s one of the best frontmen in rock and roll, and his voice and showmanship helped catapult Van Halen’s career. I prefer the Roth era of Van Halen over the Hagar era. To me, the Roth songs were harder edged and his deeper voice went great with the music.
I enjoy both the Roth and Hagar era’s equally, Rattlehead. I agree with you that the Roth era was harder edged, but it seemed like the band was naturally progressing to the more melodic song structures with the 1984 album. DLR was clearly a better frontman than Sammy, but Sammy was clearly a better singer. To me, they are almost two different bands. The Roth era albums were definitely more “metal” in nature, and I love them all (even DIVER DOWN!). But the Sammy era albums are also excellent. Not as heavy, but the singing is much better and the songwriting is better, in my opinion.
Diamond Dave is a rock god – always has been, always will be….and Sam is the rock & roll Jimmy Buffet. Si, mas tequila! No mas Van Hagar!
Well, obviously Dave is still young enough to “Dance The Night Away!” 😉 He’s “Just A Gigolo,” everywhere he goes… 😉 LOL!
The first four VH albums are masterpieces. Just talking about them makes me want to listen to them back to back. Record sales were tremendous with Sammy, but that original chemistry was just undeniable. I particularly like the darker tone of VH 4.
