Diamond Dave Is Dead

There must be something to this 6-6-06 stuff after all. Today really is the end of the world.

I just saw David Lee Roth on The Tonight Show singing a bluegrass version of Van Halan's "Jump".

Yup. You heard right. I said bluegrass.

He looked like a gay televangelist in flare-legged jeans. Where's the spandex? Where's the crazy, devil-may-care hair? He didn't even do even do a toe touch. Not even one.

It's wrong. Wrong, I tell you.

I think you may be right -- that is surely a sign of the "end times." Yikes!

David Lee Roth doing bluegrass? Next thing you know, Eddie Van Halen will take up the banjo and Tommy Lee will play his snare drum with one of those little brushes and all us 80's music lovers will know we are OLD. :(

I hate to tell you this, but the Diamond Dave we all loved has been lost in some strange fog since about 1988. I mourned his passing long ago. My favorite line of his was from "Hot for Teacher" when, speaking, he said "I don't feel tardy!" Love it. So long, Dave.
