Frank Meyer of LA Weekly caught up with former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth who spoke about his new album ‘Diamond Dave’ and his former band. “The new album is Dave in junior high school,” Roth said. “It’s almost all cover tunes, the stuff that I grew up shoplifting as a kid,” including Savoy Brown (‘Made Up My Mind’), the Doors (‘Soul Kitchen’), the Steve Miller Band (‘Shoo Bop’) and so on, plus some originals. “It’s familiar bands, but it ain’t the familiar songs. Most of what you get on Top 40 is low on fat, high on sugar. I’m an American. I like high fat, high sugar.” Laweekly.com has since removed the article.
