http://www.antimusic.com/news/16/June/08David_Lee_Roth_Talks_Van_Halen_Tour.shtml
David Lee Roth discusses Van Halen’s 2015 tour on the latest edition of The Roth Show. The singer shares some insight into his performances and the live production involved with last summer’s North American run in support of “Tokyo Dome Live In Concert.”

“So the question is ‘is it the show or the music’”, Roth begins. “When we get on the road with Van Halen this is always a pivotal question – at what point does the show distract from the music because what Van Halen is is a club band playing to a club audience on massive scale.

“You can say it’s a selection of songs with a narration, I break the fourth wall constantly and talk directly to you and turn and face the camera and describe ironically what is or isn’t happening – or you could look at it as a speaking one-man show with really great songs – it alternates in between the two and too much visual can distract from that.”

Roth also tackles the currently hot topic of fan fiction, which is created by fans of a particular subject or theme – music artist, TV series, etc. – and has taken off since the advent of the internet as writers combine talents online.

I would be more inclined to believe that he’s the same person he’s always been – you’re just now getting the opportunity to see the real Dave as opposed to rock star Dave.

I agree. Dave was always like this in interviews with journalists he liked.

Maybe… I have considered that. It’s very likely he was pretending to be something else back in the 80′s.

But everyone changes with age, and he still seems very different. Who the real Dave is… maybe we will never know.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

I tend to think this is pretty much the same Dave as always — a little wacky and spastic. Just a little less charming at 60-something.

But the real Dave alone without the DLR persona… is probably not seen very often

David Lee Roth’s Complete ‘No Holds Bar-B-Que’ Is Now Online
By Jeff Giles
July 6, 2016 10:39 AM

David Lee Roth has exhumed his infamously bizarre No Holds Bar-B-Que project, uploading the entire film to his YouTube channel.

Bar-B-Que’s reappearance comes in the midst of a flurry of renewed online activity for Roth, who resumed posting several months ago after pulling a disappearing act in early 2015 — and more importantly for longtime fans of the once-and-again Van Halen frontman, it offers an opportunity to take a firsthand look at a release that raised more than a few eyebrows when it first appeared in 2002.

During an interview with the A.V. Club, Roth described the then-new film as “A variety of ingredients, I think probably that you’d recognize instantly. Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, Soupy Sales, Groucho, Kurosawa, Hugh Hefner and on and on and on. But I’ve woven it together in a form that I think is much more appropriate for our national attention-deficit syndrome, or whatever it is we’re having. As in, ‘Too hip, gotta go, golly, look at the time. Gotta go change the air in my tires, love to hang, bye.’”

Of the project’s frenetic pace, Roth pointed to the modern consumer’s “frenzied” biorhythms and added, “I tried to create a different type of television — it’s not really a show and it’s not really a biography. There’s a lot of show-and-tell in there. I’m not really sure what it is. Perhaps that makes it pure. Like Picasso said, it’s bound to go over some people’s heads, so I created a version with a director’s commentary.”

No Holds Bar-B-Que never really saw an official release, although VHS copies inexplicably circulated among select press outlets at the time. CDNow offered a somewhat bemused take on the project, saying it “opens with Roth flailing about in a large city in some sort of Kung Fu/T’ai Chi-style dance with swords and poles” and “only gets stranger” from there.

“Roth dresses up like a sailor and hosts a luau, hunts gorillas in the jungle, sports a ninja costume (while his cover of Gerry Rafferty’s ‘Baker Street’ plays in the background) and plays with more swords (did we mention there are a lot of swords in this video?),” reads the description. “Not only that, but we also see Roth in army fatigues, carrying some sort of rocket launcher, wandering about a dark cave (presumably hunting for Osama Bin Laden?); cavorting with pregnant girls drinking Bud Light and dressing as an Arab sheik — all “live from the Mojo Dojo.”

For years, No Holds Bar-B-Que only circulated on the bootleg trading circuit, but thanks to Roth’s generosity, now it’s free for all to see. If you’re looking for a little extra Diamond Dave in your day — or just in the mood for some truly surreal entertainment — kick back and soak it all in above.
