A Long Talk With David Lee Roth Diamond Dave on tattoo skin care and the future of Van Halen.

“Do you ever do that thing where you take a pill, and then you forget that you took it, so you take another one?” asks David Lee Roth, lead singer of Van Halen and now a fledgling entrepreneur, immediately upon arriving in New York’s offices last Friday. “I did that with my pot gummy.” He’s here for a photo shoot, and then we’re supposed to take a car to the Four Seasons for an interview, but in between Roth makes a surprise visit to our copy-editing department to meet some fans and cryptically announce what sounds like plans for another Van Halen reunion. (The band has been inactive since its 2015 tour, and until now, neither Roth nor Eddie Van Halen has said much about what comes next.) “When we come back through town in the summertime and do the original thing, maybe somewhere sportin’, maybe with somebody famous,” Roth says, “I’ll make sure we get you all tickets so you can see what we do for gainful employment. My mom still wonders.”

I was told our interview would be one-on-one, but since today’s agenda includes a discussion of Ink The Original, Roth’s just-launched line of skin-care products designed to keep tattoos from fading, he brought along his business partner, Ami James, tattoo artist, star of the reality show Miami Ink, and co-founder of the website Tattoodo. “I wanted you to meet the Coen brothers of the most exciting industry since sneakers,” Roth tells me.

Eventually we arrive in a hotel suite where Roth steers Ami and his publicists into the bedroom and shuts the door, pours himself a drink, and rearranges the furniture so we’re sitting at a desk across from each other. And then we talk for two hours.

VH tour news at the end of March 2019. :?:

When did a VH record cost $20 ?


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Maybe he’s been taking classes at the Sammy Hagar School for Convenient Math. :mrgreen:

I did like this interview better than the last one. At least the interviewer was either a fan or did his homework and actually asked a member of the band what the heck they were doing.


Stay Frosty

I took it to mean CD’s, downloads, etc. not a literal new remastered vinyl release.
