    “A Party David Lee Roth Will Be Proud Of”



    Fans staging event celebrating Diamond Dave’s 50th birthday with classic VH tribute, giveaways, and a new twist on Sammy Hagar bashing!


    David Lee Roth 50th Birthday Tribute
    October 9th 2004
    Tribeca Rock Club, New York City

    It’s a milestone celebrating a milestone; American rock ’n’ roll icon David Lee Roth is hitting the big 5-0, and for half of those years he’s lived a lifetime. In the spirit of Dave, the night will feature flash, style and substance.

    Unchained, The Mighty Van Halen tribute will be performing a “big-rock” solid set list of Roth-era VH and some of the legendary frontman’s solo material. Unchained has earned a sizable east coast following behind the dead-on Roth impersonation of singer Ricky McCoy; whiskey-saturated voice, high kicks and all.

    All night long, the creators of the “It Ain’t Van Halen Without David Lee Roth” campaign, Mike Casale and Ron Albanese, will have tons of David Lee Roth-related giveaways for the celebrants in attendance. The giveaways include items from Magna Carta Records, Warner Brothers Records, and several others to be announced. Oh, yeah -- they’ll be selling their shirts too.

    “David Lee Roth has been one of the most colorful, full-of-life and larger-than-life entertainers of the last twenty five years, and we’re putting on a party that he would be proud of,” Casale promises.

    For anyone living under a rock, David Lee Roth’s visionary creative drive has sold over 40 million albums in the U.S. and earned him legions of fans around the entire world. Diamond Dave’s role in building the ’80s burgeoning music video scene gave birth to some of the most memorable and entertaining music videos of all time, both in front of and behind the camera. His concert performances and road tales are the stuff of rock legend. From a string of sold-out tours fronting Van Halen to this Summer’s nationally televised live performance before an audience of 500,000 on July 4th, David Lee Roth is still the frontman to whom all pale in comparison. Especially Sammy Hagar.

    Real Van Halen fans can’t help but take shots at Roth’s laughable replacement in the band, and now they may be able to do it literally, as there will be a life-size piñata of the sub-par vocalist present.

    In closing, pro-Roth sloganeer Albanese stated, “Even if I don’t get first crack at that piñata, I am truly honored to help stage this event. David Lee Roth is a universal rock treasure, and a true star.”
