It's actually quite an interesting arrangement, but he looks painfully uncomfortable singing it.

In the name of heavy metal, WTF happened? Holy ****!

It's one thing to move on from Rock and Roll. But at least keep your pride.

I would have never recognized him.

Exactly. David isn't the hunk he was in the 80's, but he really doesn't look that bad now for a guy 20+ years older.

On the other hand...that hillbilly arrangement of Jump had to be the most ill-conceived and ill-advised treatments of a piece of music since Zamfir, Master of the Pan Flute performed Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

You guys are missing the point. It's not that he looks BAD....it's that he looks f'ing GOOFY.

Chuck Norris is older than Dave, but he still looks badass. Dave looks like an accountant now.

Hell, Imma be 45 this year, and I don't look like that! Could you imagine Robert Plant looking that goofy?

No.

I take your point though; David does look like he took an extended hit of helium in that clip.

It's crazy. It's like the arrangement and his "new" look are the whole other end of the spectrum.

That pretty much sucked. The worst thing about it, is people will probably buy it to tie them over until Taylor Hicks can make a cd.

That performance should have been on a rooftop like the famous Beatles "Get Back".
I can hear the crowd singing along as Roth/Niles Crane approaches the building's edge.

"Might as well jump. jump !
Might as well jump.
Go ahead, jump. jump !
Go ahead, jump."

I kind of feel sorry for the guy. Although he was a big part of the chemistry of Van Halen he was the least musically talented of the group and the post Van Halen years have not been kind to the guy. Although he did have some success with his solo rock career it was not nearly the same as the Hagar Van Halen incarnation. Now he seems to be floundering around just trying to get by. I wonder what, if any, income he gets from his royalties from their early albums? Is it a cash thing he needs or just to be on stage again.

Or maybe he really likes that blue grass project. heh... It may have been better if he did some of his high jump kicks and splits. :) As a fan of guitar their were some talented pickers in that band but the whole thing was a bit alien and awkward feeling. Just didn't go together well.

I know I will be hung by the rafters for this but I actually think that Van Halen was a better band musically with Hagar. Though I liked Roth's style when I saw them live he was pretty bad from the music side of it. I am not saying in any way I didn't like early VH tunes some of them are some of my favorite all time songs and always will be.

I hear what you're saying. I think Sammy being established in that genre really helped the band succeed after Roth left. David Lee Roth actually looks fine. He just doesn't look like, well, David Lee Roth. So, that kinda throws us all for a loop.

Is that really his illegitimate daughter? If so, that's kinda sad.

Bottom line, VH was one of the best rock bands ever. As fans we just want to see more of the magic, but I'm afraid it just isn't going to happen.
