    Bart Walsh Died

    Sad to say that former David Lee Roth Bart Walsh died on the 2nd of November aged just 56. He toured with Dave in the late 90s and appeared on the BBQ video.

    If my memory serves I think he even posted here a couple of times anonymously many years ago.






    Bart Walsh was a veteran guitarist, who was best known as the original guitarist for the amazing Van Halen Tribute band The Atomic Punks. His years spent performing with them caught the eye of VH frontman David Lee Roth, and he was soon recruited to join Dave on his 1999 world tour as his lead guitarist.

    Although Bart was best known for his time playing hard rock, he grew up under the tutalege of his great uncle Cecil Campbell, a country music hall of famer.

    Schooled at the Musicians Institute in LA, along side notables like Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson), and Paul Gilbert (Racer X and Mr. Big) Walsh put together the band Lancia. They quickly became a top LA draw, and their self-titled CD was released in Japan to great acclaim.

    After his time with the Atomic Punks and David Lee Roth, Bart worked with Poison frontman Bret Michaels for a while on one of his solo projects, and then went to work for Gibson Guitars. For several years Bart traveled all over for Gibson doing hundreds of clinics demonstrating their products, and educating buyers on all the things that make Gibson the company of legend that they are.

    Loved Bart...he most definitely posted here. I wasn't as close to Bart as some of my good friends on here, but I talked to him a few times over the years...and interviewed him as well. A really good dude...

    Seems like he was posting on YouTube as recently as two weeks ago...

    RIP Bart...

    Has a cause of death been identified as far as anyone knows?

    If those in the know can say, what was his user name on this site?

    If you follow the link below it will take you to one of the many dusty corners of this site no one seems to know about any more - the gallery, which even has a Bart Walsh section.

    According to Bart's family, the cause of his death was gastrointestinal bleed and dehydration. The reason I said Bart posted anonymously which sounds kind of odd since almost all of us post anonymously on here, is that Bart specifically posted as someone who knew him so clearly did not want the posts to be identified as by himself even under an alias.

    Yikes! I take it he wasnít in the hospital. They could have hydrated him with IVís. Sounds like he had problems and wasnít getting proper medical care. I had a friend that went hiking in the Utah desert and ended up getting so dehydrated it caused permanent kidney damage. He was one of these gung ho adventure types but he got over his head trying to be some macho survivalist.

    I am wondering if Dave will comment. Although given he has been offline a month or so, he might be out in wilderness.

    It will be interesting to see. On the other hand, he seems to not publicly do such things so I suspect he will not have a comment.

    Shit...Bart did a podcast just a week ago. Let it play...it gets to the video pretty quick...

    Part 1...pretty fun interview. Bart was out there...talking to Brounsound1 last night really brought back a lot of memories I thought were gone...

    https://youtu.be/74vFA12RhhA

    Part 2...Bart is playing here...this guy edits the damn playing...which is pretty shoddy...

    I was curious if Ralph Saenz/Michael Starr would respond as well...somewhere...

    Ralph doesn't seem to tweet much and Michael Starr is a character he plays so probably not.

    I could be wrong but I don't think Bart Walsh and Dave Roth parted on the absolute best of terms so I wouldn't expect much from there either.

    Well to be honest my memory is that it didn't go well when he posted but even ignoring the current tragic circumstances, these were the early days of online forums and social media and you have to cut him some slack.

    I haven't gone back to look and see if the posts are still there, they probably are.

    For people that remember the West Wing it was very much like when Josh got in a mess posting in forums which was in turn based on when the writer of that did in real life.

    RIP BART WALSH!

    You were a great friend!

    Fuck blabbermouth for your 2nd hand information and poor Journalism.

    Delaney isn’t working on an album with him, shes probably the reason he’s dead.

    I watched the whole divorce drag out on social media like a smelly fart that wouldn’t leave the room...

    I will miss you Bart, I appreciate the interviews and your kindness towards me, even getting me backstage for Steel Panther when i never even asked. I’ll never forget you.

    Also, nice to see you in this thread Pojo. I didn’t expect to see you in here....


    May 2020 will be the 20th anniversary of the message board....

    Damn does time fly....

    Dave goes public when he wants to keep his image out there or is promoting something. Dave has a public persona and that’s what we like and see. I hear he’s more down to earth behind the scenes and he doesn’t toot his horn when he makes charitable donations or helps people. His supervisor in New York said Dave just wanted to be the best EMT he could be and he really did want to help people. He was Dave Roth the Emergency Medical Technician not Diamond David Lee Roth here to get attention. So there’s Diamond Dave and then there is just Dave.

    Well Hitch and Hitchworld showed what the internet was all about. Before it got bottle necked into corporate social media faggotry. Look at at Zuckerberg, selling everyoneís data and calling them fucking idiots and pissing off the native Hawaiians buying Kauai up and locking them out. I guess thatís trolling to the extreme. IĒm just pissed heís doing it and not me.

    Oh well. Yeah too bad about Bart. Never knew much about him but that interview was cool. He came from North Carolina hillbilly musical heritage which Donney would dig. Anyways, I think itís time to go to Popeyeís for a chicken sandwich and pop someone in the eye. Ha! Ha! Whatís that all about? What are they putting in those sandwiches? You donít see people tearing apart KFC over that shit. Ha! Ha! I love it when some customer throws a five gallon sweet tea dispenser into the kitchen area. Thatís something I would do during bar rush after I swam to the bottom of a bottle of mezcal and ate the worm.

    Got to see him once when Dave opened for Bad Company in 1999. Hadn't heard of Walsh prior to that, or the Atomic Punks (which - if memory serves - was the Van Halen tribute band Walsh had played with), so I had no idea about Walsh's background...[Walsh] didn't move around much onstage, and my overall recollection was that Walsh just stood there and knocked those CVH tracks out of the park one after the other. I do remember thinking at the time that Walsh had a pretty good command of the CVH material (again, without knowing Walsh's background at the time of the show).

    After Walsh left that Roth touring lineup, I must say I hadn't thought about him in years other than finding out a few years after the fact/show that Walsh had been in a Van Halen tribute band prior to hooking up with Dave. I have the BBQ video and have seen it several times but can't remember Walsh appearing in it re: where in the video it was. I can't remember right now if Walsh did anything else with Dave after that 1999 tour...was it that Walsh had done some studio work with Dave after the 1999 tour? And I wanna say I seem to recall that there were...what, rumors?...that Walsh stopped working with Dave in 2000/2001 over a financial dispute...something that sounded silly along the lines of Walsh had been giving Dave guitar lessons or recordings and Walsh wasn't getting paid? I'm probably misremembering what I had read along those lines...it was nearly 20 years ago...

    Shame, though. 56 isn't that many years away from where I am now: still seems young to me.

I do remember thinking at the time that Walsh had a pretty good command of the CVH material (again, without knowing Walsh's background at the time of the show).

    After Walsh left that Roth touring lineup, I must say I hadn't thought about him in years other than finding out a few years after the fact/show that Walsh had been in a Van Halen tribute band prior to hooking up with Dave. I have the BBQ video and have seen it several times but can't remember Walsh appearing in it re: where in the video it was. I can't remember right now if Walsh did anything else with Dave after that 1999 tour...was it that Walsh had done some studio work with Dave after the 1999 tour? And I wanna say I seem to recall that there were...what, rumors?...that Walsh stopped working with Dave in 2000/2001 over a financial dispute...something that sounded silly along the lines of Walsh had been giving Dave guitar lessons or recordings and Walsh wasn't getting paid? I'm probably misremembering what I had read along those lines...it was nearly 20 years ago...

    Shame, though. 56 isn't that many years away from where I am now: still seems young to me.
    Bart was a good musician. He came out of the Musician’s Institute along with Paul Gilbert and other guitar players who played for some big acts. He worked for Gibson guitars as a brand rep for awhile.

    Not everyone has that magical stage presence. For some players it’s fine to just stand there. It was fine for The Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd. But if you are doing the Van Halen thing you need that high energy stage magic. EVH was a natural at it. The guy is a introvert but on stage during a show he had the magic.

    Lot’s of good musicians who for whatever reasons don’t get the big break. Many stay in the music industry but not as part of an act. It’s an industry where most people have a short run in it and have to find something else to do. Music is much like sports.

    I didn't think Walsh's relative lack of movement onstage was a detriment, much the same as...like, the 2012 VH show I saw, Ed didn't move around much at all.

    Some people might prefer or expect that high energy stage magic or presence. Doubtless CVH had it in spades, just as doubtless that was a part of CVH's live appeal. By the time 1999 rolled around, I didn't care quite as much about that kind of stuff anymore.

    In Walsh's case, it was only relative to what Dave was doing, which was his usual hyperactive/can't stand still delivery. But I do remember being impressed with what Walsh was playing in terms of the CVH stuff, in that he certainly knew how to play the stuff well. I bet you take 99.9% of those youtubers posting clips of themselves playing Eruption sitting down on a stool in the comfort of their bedroom, put them onstage with Roth in front of even a few thousand people and THEN tell them to play Eruption (without the benefit of multiple filmed takes to get it right), 99.9% of THOSE youtubers would shit themselves long before getting to the fingertapped part of the solo.

    I was at a bass seminar in Ohio for a week that was taught by Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane). Jack said you can practice all your want at home but you aren't a real musician until you get up in front of a live audience and perform on stage. So yeah you make a good point there. There is the at home hobbiest and then there is the pro player. The pro player can play live in front of your steaming eyes.

    David Lee Roth made the point of being in a tribute band would be more difficult because you have to copy someone else. Dave said he was amazed at how good some of the VH tribute bands were. So anyways Bart got the Dave gig and played the Eddie stuff live well. I mean you have Vic Johnson in Sammy's band. Vic is a seasoned pro player but he just don't do Eddie well. Some players just can't get it down and nothing is worse than half-assed Van Halen. You got Vic trying but not getting there and you got Sammy on top of it. It's enough to make you want to pop a cynide capsule to put yourself out of your misery.

    If I recall... Bart and Dave split ways around the Bar-B-Q sessions time frame and there was some sort of issues in song-writing/publishing/legal nonsense... I seem to recall something that ended up getting Bart's images pulled from some video bullshit...

    Doesn't much matter... RIP
