    I've posted this story before but.....
    When they were filming Hot For Teacher at Marshall H/S I was there and met everybody except Alex. Dave was sitting by himself near some production equipment. My friend Jimmy wanted to get his autograph on a W&CF poster. Everyone else had signed it and Dave's was the last signature needed. He was on the phone so we stood a few meters away from him, waiting for him to get off. He looked at us, held the receiver in his hand and said "What?" almost exactly the way he answers Vai's guitar in the Yankee Rose intro. I ask him if he wouldn't mind signing the poster if he gets a chance. He then sees a security guard, calls him over, points at us and says "Hey man, do your fucking job, keep these people away from me!" this is a true story and it took me about two years to be able to listen to those VH albums again. I wonder if he'd autograph Strummin With The Devil if I asked, hmmmmm??

    It's a shame it turned that way. Not to defend Dave - for he is the penultimate primadonna - but maybe he was just having a bad day. The guy probably had a small or large crowd gathered a few meters away everywhere he went; and they all wanted the same thing. Guys probably ask for his autograph while he is taking a piss. I could believe that he is just a dick, however. He seems extremely self-absorbed at the very least; it's probably why he never settled down and started a family.

    Wow OUTTALOVE....that's a fucked up story!

    It's a shame when you hear a story like that. Not to defend him but who knows what kind of day he was having or who he was on the phone with. Also, This was also the year that was the last for Dave being in the band. Maybe a lot of tension was on that set (*you can totally tell that I'm a die hard Dave fan....I defend him like he's my family and shit! ) Eiether way....that WAS way out of line. Fans are what make a band....period.
    The good news Is i have heard other stories and they are usually more positive....

    Wannabe and Dirty, I came to the same conclusion which is why I'm on this website this very day.

    Hey man....just wanted to say hello! I've seen your posts around lately and you always seem to have something intelligent to say. This response about why he never settled down to have a family makes sense brother. I never thought that DLR was gay.....i just knew that if It's true with what his peers said about him being DIAMOND DAVE from the min he woke up in the morning till when he went to bed.....how could anyone be in a relationship with someone like that? I will give him this though....how many rock n roll frontman are exactly the same way mentally now than they were when they were in their prime? I sware the guy will never age....he is the epitome of a real rock n roll star. He's always done what HE wanted to do and I respect him for that. Shit....even Eddie once said that he respected Dave for always doing what he wanted to do. God bless ya Dave.
    Now have a fucking kid already so the Daimond Dave legend can be passed on.....

    Being married is a monster commitment and all of you who are, know what I'm talking about. Dave doesn't want to compromise and for a guy like him, I don't blame him. When he gets older, he'll probably not be alone. a lot of people say they get married because they don't to be alone in their later years and maybe Dave just isn't worried about it. I don't think the guy will have any problems finding women later in life, do you?

    It's funny you mention this. It reminds me of a YouTube Dave 2006 interview I watched somewhere on this site earlier this year. I laughed my ass off when Dave said his mother told him he might as well act (Sopranos) too, for he'll look like Lee Marvin in another ten years. I'm sure Dave made that up himself, but it was funny.

    I might get a little flack for typing this, but sometimes his interviews are more entertaining than even watching CVH clips. I think Dave's talent is held back by his apparent inability to calm down; he always seems to be going a hundred miles an hour, his imagination racing ahead for the next memorable statement ... while the most of people he's around are cruising at a more realistic pace.

    As for kids, supposedly he has a daughter who is a porn actress. I've never actually seen a photograph of her though. It would be scary if she had the eyebrow thing going like Dave.

    Wannabe, I don't know how old you are, but back in the eighties, VH had some of the best radio interviews ever. One time they were interviewed I think by DJ Jim Ladd and were taking calls by the listeners. They had brought in tons of music like Hank Williams, oddball stuff that they had (probably all Dave's) and were fielding calls and answering questions from the callers. it was nothing short of pure entertainment, and I laughed every 2 minutes. I've never heard any band or even performer come close to their entertainment value in an interview since

    I could only find one picture of her without anything in one of her orifices mandolin. She does have Dave's nose without a doubt. Claims her mother was at a VH concert somewhere in Spain and slept with DLR afterwards and voila! Dave hasn't denied her being his daughter either. I dunno.
