Ah yes the “praying hands”. Brings back memories of when I was a kid. Cars
still had metal dashboards. We used to go to the drive-in movies and it was
common for them to give away trinkets with a rubber suction cup, so you
could stick it on the dashboard. One of the more common was the “praying
hands”, along with the plastic Jesus.
Roth, your appreciation of the arts in Japan is fascinating to me.
Dave i went to art school on the graduate level in new york and i teach
advanced painters here in madrid.i also make music so i know that making
the trasition over to another medium can be hard.i am very impressed by
your visual work really great.is it published?
Dave said wait till im 18 for a tattoo..I got a van halen tattoo at 16 :p I
think thats an exception
So im the tropics they do draw….tattoonis a form of drawing…hahah
inlove u dave
Love the show Dave!!!
This is legitimatley fascinating. Thank You Dave.
Hes reading a prompt
Dave, obscurity and irrelevance called…..they wanted to say welcome back,
see ya soon.
Dave is not normal! Dave cannot even stand on the stage in a normal
fashion. Dave cannot even go and relax after a successful tour. He had the
right idea, he headed over the Pacific Ocean. Others would have ended up in
Hawaii, only that this character ends up in Japan. Talk about living life
in the moment, absorbing everything around oneself. I’ve never found
tattoo’s interesting. Until now. It seems Dave’s read a lot of books. It’s
a good thing he never read, “Front Man for Dummies”.
If you listened to what the man had to say you would realize that he is far
They are about to tour Japan soon…
I really want him to too so freaking bad!!!!!!!!!!
Good job DLR!
Is there anything Dave doesn’t know?
POWERFUL! DAVID LEE ROTH
Lol, look at us, storming in here after the podcast Powerful DLR…
Powerful David Lee Roth. JRE.
fuck you people are lame, he doesn’t need money, he’s expressing some shit
he finds interesting, unfortunately bunch of time needs to pass for you
chumps to realize the value, then again though, from a embryo culture that
is basuck america, i wouldn’t expect more than this cry baby shit, wah, be
the past Dave, your forcing me to think about the present and it makes me
Another great show
Dave Lee Roth is highly intelligent. I have always loved the Van Halen
Albums up to 1984, all of which have him as the lead singer. I respect him
even more now for being inquisitive, historical, and ethnographic. I look
forward to the Van Halen show in Osaka!
Ok dave whatever you say …why didn’t you choose china as your ancient
Diamond Dave is still always Diamond Dave !
Only Dave can talk for 40min straight about a tattoo on his back!
After a bad day, i enjoy shutting out the world by watching a brand new
episode of the roth show….thanks Dave
The eyes of Dave’s dragon look like Bodhidharma…lidless and gazing up
into the third eye. Soon Dave will be trekking alone into the mountains to
commune with ancient Shinto Kami. Might as well go right to the source and
godhead of the culture.
Dave you r the coolest man ever!
DLR is crazy, but damn is he knowledgeable
look at all the people here tonight”
Love your show’s…POWERFUL DLR!!! Gambatte!!!!
Great episode, great artist!
Red bull and pop tarts!? Hahaha!

THAT BEING SAID……..
Hey Dave, when’s the next Irish visit?
This guy jams. He’s led a life many only dream about.
..I think Dave is adopting the Alex VH look….
Another fascinating episode. Love the back tat Dave, but please don’t go
full body with it.
Wealthy knowledge, with a Healthy entourage, Reciting ink history
translating mystery. Beltless, Felt this was awesome from the Horimono to
the cherry blossom. Inked on, Linked in, on the brink of something to think
of…for the next tattoo
George Takai (Star Trek) grew up in an internment camp and has recently
written and produced a play based on that experience.
Thanks for another great episode, Dave! I’d love to spend a long period of
time in Japan, exploring and learning. Cheers!
