David Lee Roth Stll Smilin’ At ’58

The GTC would love to wish a Very Enthusiastic and Happy Mid-Air Split-Tastic 58th Birthday to Diamond David Lee Roth!

As the flamboyant, charismatic, eagerly energetic and dynamic powerhouse vocalist of Van Halen you guided the band to legendary rock status. Working your one of the kind charms on the group’s first six must have records.

And, yes, your first two solo releases have a special place in most rock collections.Crazy From The Heat (EP ’85) & Eat Em And Smile (’86) let you shine. Showing the world the your musical diversity and sense of humor and letting you build a solid career without the Eddie on your back.

We also would like to ask, “What the hell was that radio show you had in NYC?!”…Nevermind. You are a true showman among millions of wannabes!

What would you like to say on your special day?

“It’s always irritated me that people say, ‘Where’s the action? Oh wow, there’s no action here; let’s go somewhere else.’ These people will never find the action.” – David Lee Roth

“You want a hero in the music world? James Brown. He brought a feeling to music without really using words. He’s just famous for his sound.” – David Lee Roth

“Van Halen can keep providing the rain and I’ll keep providing the parade.” – David Lee Roth

“Music is like girlfriends to me; I’m continually astonished by the choices other people make.” – David Lee Roth

“You hope for the best. I exepct it. I’m the toastmaster general of the immoral majority.” – David Lee Roth

“The reason the critics all like Elvis Costello better than me is because they all look like Elvis Costello.” – David Lee Roth

“The world is run by people who never feel well.” – David Lee Roth

“Just because I’m bitter and cynical does not mean I’m not having a great time.” – David Lee Roth

Much Love DLR, our lives are better for having you in it!
