This week in Internet news that should up the online world’s overall quotient of “bozedy bozedy bop”s: David Lee Roth has joined Twitter and Facebook. So far all that the accounts have on them is a lot of teaser text and a link to the Van Halen singer/former radio host’s official site, but a look at the source code reveals a couple of things! Alas, none of them seem to be a plan to launch DaveTV (as seen above in the all-parody-everything video for “Just A Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody”) on some digital tier of a cable system… at least not yet.
Here’s the description:
“The life of Rock-and-Roll superstar Diamond David Lee Roth brought to life on the Web.”
Does that mean webcam videos of otherwise Lost Weekends?? Please.
And the keywords:
“David Lee Roth, Diamond Dave, DLR, Van Halen, Rock and Roll, Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Pop Metal, Rock Legend, Superstar, Performer, Pasadena, Warner Bros. Records, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen, Mark Stone, Michael Anthony, Sammy Hagar, Gary Cherone”
Aw, nice of him to include the shout-out to Gary in there! Although maybe using the former Van Halen singer in his keywords is a black-hat tactic—and Roth’s trying to siphon away attention from the idea that Van Halen III ever existed. Mean!
