    Are there really any such things as "straight techno nightclubs"??

    I have rarely been to any sort of techno dance clubs, because I can't dance and I hate the music. But even the ones I've been in, the crowd appeared to have a lot of LGBT folks in it, even if it wasn't officially a "gay" club.

    As far as I can make out LGBT people do have a lot more fun going out in their later lives than the rest of us which is what made me wonder about the 64 year old dancing all night thing.

    It's maybe less about sexuality than just not having kids and recycling partners more.

    Then again straight techno nightclubs are probably free of Van Halen fans too.
    He isn't that anonymous if he is known to do so.

    Can we please just use the word "faggots"......like the good old days?

    Stop bending over for those people (pun intended) and end the PC bullshit.

    The world has gone to hell because people take everything seriously. We used to enjoy great comedians who were sarcastic and a bit dark. Now everyone takes everything literally. Listened to the Roth/Rogan interview and they got into talking about this. I agree with Joe. We live in an age of fabricated hate. People are bored and they need to invent something to be angry about. I think that's a big part of it but then we can have fun trolling those people.

    Back in the good old days, faggots often called themselves faggots.

    I like the good old days better.

    I listened to the whole thing... Dave was pretty darn articulate, entertaining and interesting.

    I found his point about his inability to be an actor who can project a certain character because he is already a character an interesting and good perspective. Also his point on other musicians who made totally recognizable music that anyone can be familiar with but you couldn't recognize the artist if you were standing right next to them.

    It was a compelling aspect of his self awareness and what he brought to the stage... he was part of the overall art not just the sound.

    His packaging on his new line of skin care products look pretty damn sharp. Hope it does well. Sounds like an interesting niche Dave is marketing to.

    Or dungarees...

    Actually as ideas go it seems like a good one - only 1 in 10 people over 50 have a tattoo but more than a third of under 40 year olds do.

    Those are US figures, remember it includes people in their 70s and 80s. How many 70 year old women have ink?

    This is a great moment. But how could it last about threeee hours at that pace?

    I'm not a regular listener to Rogan's podcast, but after 4 hours of Alex Jones & 3 hours of DLR, I think Joe must have a strange gift for keeping people talking endlessly... even when the conversation veers off into some really weird shit (as it did in both of these cases).

    His format would never work in conventional talk radio, because you couldn't do this shit in 10 minute segments (with a bunch of commercials in between)

    Alex Jones and David Lee Roth are both masters of bullshit. Both make people laugh when they hit that magical moment of brilliant crazy and like mining you have to dig through the rough to get to the gems. What Alex and Dave have in common is they both read a lot. There is a lot of data to base stories and bullshit on. Alex is the paranoid conspiracy weirdo which people seem to have to listen to for whatever reason and Dave is like your crazy uncle who is in his 60's and still thinks he's a teenager going on panty raids.

    Oh shit. Sounds like an internship I did. I didn’t make coffee. They made me do all the data collection grunt work everyone hated to do.

    This interview is basically like every Dave interview- generally long-winded and overstuffed with zen/philosophical/existential musings. And I say this as someone who likes Dave. I can only take so much before my eyes start to glaze over.

    Thankfully I didn't have to perform the weeks of data gathering... just a few hours of turd polishing to tell a story that we already knew the ending. Now that it's done, I hand it off to the poor soul who's job it will become. Thankful I had Dave's babbling in the background to fill the void.

    Gotta say, I never imagined DLR being as he is today.I always thought he was the driving force behind the baddest band on the planet and once the solo career died he would disappear and rarely be seen ( which is basically true ). That Vegas shit he did really turned him into one strange mother fucker to this day. And yes, I think the dude swings both ways.

    Yeah, from 1995 Vegas onward, he got gradually more and more strange...to where he's at today, which appears downright bizarre.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least to find out he is either bi or completely gay...and perhaps always was totally gay and the macho hetero stud image was just a ruse. It wouldn't change my enjoyment level of what he did one iota should that prove to have been the case.

    Honestly? He comes across as a strange dude who enjoys his own company beyond anybody else's. At least he isn't trying to grow old gracefully. It wouldn't suit him anyway.

    Sounds like what Pete Townshend said to the Stones at their induction to the Rock 'n'arriverai Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, "Don't try to grow old gracefully, it wouldn't suit you".

    Growing old, Dave seems to try hard to speak out with art, but then he always has.

    He's got his feet right into "I, me, me, mine", but always so entertaining. Too much in a way, as even we old fans can get tired of it. A lil still ain't enough for Uncle Dave, and it never will.

    I think that's right, in that...I mean, when I was growing up, Roth was the man in terms of rock frontmen. By the time I was hitting my teens, John Lennon was dead. The Who were pretty much defunct. Led Zeppelin was history. KISS had already gone from the biggest thing in 1977 to a shitty tv movie to disco to The Elder. The Rolling Stones were still working, but even then they were more like relics from my older siblings generation. For me back then, Classic Van Halen was happening in realtime: they weren't a band that had already broken up or had long since peaked.

    Roth was the frontman of that great band. And I can still remember that band dominating and the period before every half-assed EVH wannabe was putting two hands on the fretboard, and we had to contend with a seemingly endless parade of 2nd (and 3rd and 4th) rate Roth wannabes along the likes of Vince Neil and Bret Michaels. I mean, Roth had it all. Guy could do all those karate kicks, all those barefoot on hot coals screams, gave witty interviews: wonderful all-around entertainer.

    After just about 40 years of listening to the man and the music he made, I just don't have the endurance to wade through more than - at most - a ten minute contemporary interview of him. He came across as cool as fuck in the 1980s. Now? More than a little peculiar. I mean, God Bless him, you know? Just seems like one odd duck nowadays.

    Dave was always an odd duck. It’s just creepy when a guy in his 60’s is still acting that way. At least he’s not wearing chaps with no pants on at his age.

    That last charity solo gig he did...yeesh. Honestly, if THAT is representative of Roth's level of ability/quality control these days, I'm not really sure that I'd WANT to see Mike Anthony rejoin the group at this point.

    Roth just comes off like he's tweaking out on his meds too much these days. Far more weird than cool, and the hipper he tries to act the more weird it comes across.

    Plus, I've always considered Joe Rogan to be more than a bit of a talentless douche, so just the choice of interviewer alone was an inhibitor to me wanting to watch 2 + hours of a Roth interview in 2019.

    Yes, Roth DOES show some restraint re: not going assless chaps route.

    Perhaps if someone could persuade him to ditch the assorted line of Peter Bogdanovich neckerchiefs...

    Dave was spot on during the 2007-'08 tour. He's been steadily tumbling down from that peak ever since.
    What a shape he was in vocally, physically and... mentally during that tour!
    Then came the headset mike and the faggy cloth along with the vocal problems in 2012. Then the weird singing in 2015.
    At least he isn't on the wane as far as interviews.

    Being cool in your 60's is tricky business...

    Roth is at a distinct disadvantage in life at his age... He has no wife or kids to honestly tell him his choice of clothes look fucking ridiculous and they won't be seen in public with him dressing like that...

    Roth fucking carried that 2007/2008 tour.

    He had his shit hard wired.

    A 2007 Roth with a 2012 Eddie and Mike Anthony on board, now THAT would have been a reunion worth seeing.

    Oh shit, I forgot about the headset..WTF was that about?.. that was odd shit. 2007 was a great tour..Dave sounded good, band has always sounded good..I think MA is needed to cover for Dave if they decide to do this stadium tour, but like was said above, no way he plays one song..no way..
