  1. mimi says:

    It’s David Lee Roth. I think.

  2. Helen says:

    GET OUT! That’s David Lee Roth.

  3. Kim says:

    Totally David Lee Roth – with a country version of “Jump”. Really rather scary if I think about it…must go stop video now

  4. tonya says:

    David Lee Roth! I hear him on the Sirius Bluegrass Channel all the time.

    Bummer about your hard drive.

  5. Wannietta says:

    Diamond Dave would do well to stick to rock – I don’t think that bluegrass/country is his calling.

  6. LeighB says:

    Ok, that’s a little scary. Bluegrass Van Halen…Whodathunkit?

  7. Wanda says:

    I’m glad you were able to recover your data. I think you need to get on the data backup bandwagon!

  8. Kay says:

    David Lee Roth, Bluegrass?? JUMP for IT!

  9. Debbie says:

    David Lee Roth?! Oh, well — I looked different back in the day, too :)

  10. Laurie says:

    Oh David Lee Roth, where has your glam gone?

  11. Barbara says:

    David Lee Roth and what happened to the jumpsuit and flowing golden locks??? It’s like going to your high school reunion and everyone looks old except you…

  12. Tiffany M says:

    lol – david lee roth, you made my day!!! Congratulations on the hard drive – that can certainly be stressful!!!

  13. Pam says:

    David Lee Roth — So glad you could recover your stuff!

  14. Meg says:

    So David Lee Roth! Man, I gotta admit, I really wish I was seeing Van Halen tour with him right now. Hot for Teacher is one of the best songs (DRUMS!!) from my childhood.

    Well, I just love VH with Diamond Dave, no Sammy Hagar for me.

  15. Terri says:

    auughh – that reminded me (and prompted me) to back up my hard drive onto my external h.d. I hadn’t done it for a month or so and was thinking “I should do that sometime”. So now I’ve done it. thanks, Bonne Marie!

  16. LizKnits says:

    OMG… at first I thought it was some insane geek… then I realized it was some insane geek.. David Lee Roth. Crazy!!

  17. Michelle says:

    OMG,OMG,OMG….I guess that IS DLR……If he looks like that now, then I better go look in the mirror, apparently I don’t look the same after 20 years either!

  18. Sue says:

    No s#$%! That’s David Lee Roth! Just a gigilo indeed!

  19. karen w says:

    Just another (middle-aged) gigolo. David Lee Roth, absolutely hilarious. I wonder what the rest of VH thinks???

  20. Collette says:

    Okay, I kind of feel like I’m cheating–I mean, I thought it was David Lee Roth but if you double-click to go to YouTube, the title references him…yikes.

  21. Seanna Lea says:

    Wow. I never click on video links (well, there was a brief period about a year ago), so I never would have figured out who he was. It’s not exactly useful to try googling for green shirted dude singing on YouTube.

  22. Joyce in Chicago says:

    It’s David Lee Roth, his bad crazy self! Despite the toned-down look, he still seems full of mischief and fun!

  23. meg says:

    I don’t understand half of what you said, so I guess I’d better *do something* about it. Like back something up, eh? :-O

  24. Lyn says:

    Totally David Lee Roth – I knew before he even opened his mouth – how sad is that!

  25. Lizz says:

    It’s David Lee Roth.

  26. Brenda says:

    David Lee Roth. Cute contest.

  27. Brenda says:

    OMG, I feel SOOO old. I knew immediately by that “scream” it was the bad boy himself. You know it’s gotta be bad is Diamond Dave is singing Van Halen tunes to bluegrass. What’s next, the Outagamie County Fair????

  28. Isobel says:

    Just a Gigolo—-David Lee Roth!!

  29. Diane D. says:

    W.O.W. As soon as he opened his mouth I knew, even as the entire experience unfolded in an other worldly way. David Lee Roth, for sure.

  30. Deanna says:

    Oh, Diamond Dave…I couldn’t finish watching.
    I hadn’t seen that before I bought tickets for the Van Halen tour. *Sigh*

  31. Angela says:

    Only one thing scarier than David Lee Roth singing the bluegrass version of “Jump” would be The Hoff (as in Hasselhoff) singing it!

  32. Toby Wollin says:

    What a hoot! Everyone else got here first, but I have to say this version of Jump is at least as good as Dolly Parton’s version of “Stairway to Heaven” or anything on the cd “Moody Bluegrass.”

  33. gwen says:

    Holy crap.
    Is that David Lee Roth?? Damn. What happened to him?
    Now, that having been said: That version of Jump is kinda cool! In a vaguely surreal way.
    But…that’s David Lee-frackin-Roth!?!?

  34. Gaile says:

    oh god. David Lee Roth is middle aged. I guess there is no hope for me now…LOL.

  35. Ariana says:

    David Lee Roth, in a very sad, grown-up way. I think he was scared straight by Pete Townsend’s warnings.

  36. Jenn says:

    Thank goodness there’s no spandex around… David Lee Roth! Wow!

  37. Marg says:

    Who the heck is David Lee Roth? I had no idea who was singing, but I sure enjoyed it — and the pickers and grinners accompanying him. A kitchen party in the making!

  38. Jennifer says:

    David Lee Roth!! That’s hilarious.

  39. Jennifer says:

    David Lee Roth!! That’s hilarious.

  40. Beth S. says:

    This is classic, I tells ya! All that heartbreak and agony and re-formatting, and then a new cable solved the problem completely. ;-) I think we have all been there are one time or another… and me, I am a frequent visitor. ;-)

  41. srichelson says:

    Oy ve – it’s David Lee Roth dressed like an aging preppy singing in full lounge lizard style to the bluegrass beat. Perfect – thanks for making me laugh today!

  42. leslie - knitting therapist says:

    That would be a sober David Lee Roth.
    He would never do that if he were in his normal state – drunk.

    We’re going to see Van Halen in Toronto on October 7 – if the reunion lasts that long, that is…..

  43. Veronica says:

    Hee, hee. I must delurk to answer. That’s David Lee Roth, for a moment before he started singing, I thought that was Pat Boone.

  44. Carey says:

    When I first saw this clip of David Lee Roth (on the Jon Stewart show, I think), I nearly keeled over. It pained me in so many ways…

  45. Lisa says:

    MType, firewired, backup ( have heard that one) –must educate self! Something else to add to my list. Can the polka version of Jump be far behind? Long live David Lee!

  46. Gaye says:

    David Lee Roth Performing Jump – Bluegrass Style

  47. Colleen H. says:

    Wow that was scary!! It’s David Lee Roth.

  48. Susanne says:

    That is DLR himself, weird looking at best (for him)…glad you got your “stuff” recovered!

  49. Jen C. says:

    David Lee Roth! For a sec I thought it might be Jessica Simpson’s father.

  50. Mags says:

    Yummy 80’s flashback! David Lee Roth taking time off from his day job–EMT.
