New Van Halen

I tend to agree with this guy that the new Van Halen single is a snoozer. However the video (viewable at the link) reminds me just how great David Lee Roth is as a front man. His lexicon of stage moves is a cornucopia of 20th century pop culture, from Charlie Chaplin to kitsch Hawaiiana to Disco. I’ve always dug his beatnik, half-spoken lyrics as well.

    Yeah, “Tattoo” is kinda average stuff. But Roth throws in some weird stuff about his Uncle being a Proud Union Man – Dave is always interesting and I hope things go well with this new CD and tour.

    And that video is pretty funny.

    I should have put a joke in there somewhere. It looks fruity.
