Roth and Roll
If you can think of another aging rocker with more lives than David Lee Roth, please let us know. First and foremost, he's the man who made Van Halen the undisputable prototype for '80s power-pop rock (Disagree? Tell me: Which is more iconic Eddie's shredding on "Eruption" or Dave's caterwauling, high-kicking, blond-tressed schmaltz in "Jump"? Thought so. And dude, don't even mention Hagar the Horrible, "He Who Emasculated VH"). His solo career is nothing to scoff at either; we've always known ol' Diamond Dave is "Just a Gigolo." More recently, he's gotten busted buying a dime sack in Boston and took EMT training in New York, admittedly "to save a Scandinavian hikerette." And come January, Roth will settle into Howard Stern's vacant chair as host of the nation's most popular syndicated morning show. But does he still rock? That's anyone's guess, but if his shows are anything like his personal life, you can expect the unexpected.
David Lee Roth plays at 8 p.m. Monday, November 14, at Seminole Hard Rock Live, 1 Seminole Blvd., Hollywood. Tickets cost $40 to $60. Call 954-523-3309.
