Merging David Lee Roth Band[edit]

I would like to propose merging The David Lee Roth Band to this page. There was really never such a thing as the David Lee Roth band: Only his solo work. Whatever information is on The David Lee Roth Band should be copied to here/ the album pages and we should merge that here. Otherwise, we are giving the false idea that the David Lee Roth band actually existed. — DLManiac (talk) 23:37, 8 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oppose I do think the article needs modifying because there was no "David Lee Roth band" aside from the album he put out in the 90s which was called DLR Band. However other artists (such as Bruce Dickinson and Ozzy Osbourne) have articles covering their backing bands and I think it is worth chronicling here, distinct from the article about the man himself.

Support - It's not about chronicling this isn't an AfD, and it's not about Bruce Dickinson or Ozzy Osbourne. It's about condensing. The David Lee Roth Band body of work and success doesn't seem to warrant their own page and merging will still allow the information to be available.

Yes, and its inaccurate. And I think at this point, all of the information is available on the DLR page, or the albums mentioned. — DLManiac (talk) 08:26, 31 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Add guitar and harmonica to list of instruments[edit]

The bio says that he is very talented at both, yet they're not in the instruments section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:14, 11 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

All completely unsourced, thanks for bringing this up. It's been removed in accordance with Wikipedia:Biographies_of_living_persons#Reliable_sources. SolarFlash (talk) 15:37, 4 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inline tags added to lede[edit]

I just added some inline tags to the lede. I tagged the assertion that Van Halen's 2006 tour was its highest-grossing tour ever. That statement is sourced to the band's own website; a better source is needed. I looked around a bit and could not find a source I was comfortable with. I also tagged the assertion that Roth has a five-octave-plus range. The source seems iffy. SunCrow (talk) 02:08, 17 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's more than 'iffy' it's absolute nonsense. Roth's vocals were criticized for their lack of range in many a review, starting in 1978. (talk) 06:11, 5 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nothing on his non music life?[edit]

I mean,there is nothing,zip,nada,about who Roth has ever breathed on. A frontman for the biggest American 70's-80's rock band? I did read that it was his idea to get a CD for the Pretty Woman video... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:642:4100:A1A0:48AE:83FE:B638:4F50 (talk) 17:42, 5 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I started a section David_Lee_Roth#Personal_life but it needs a lot more. -- GreenC 02:06, 14 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Very questionable that Van Halen were the biggest American rock band in the Seventies - Grand Funk Railroad and several others were more popular. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:13, 5 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Did Dave write this?[edit]

I’m in the Dave camp vs. Sammy, but did Mr. Roth write this article? I had to wipe the fanboy drool off my phone halfway through! (talk) 23:56, 10 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Live performances in 2023?[edit]

Despite him "retiring" from performing live in 2021, he's recently performed with the Royal Machines in March and September. I can't find any good sources, but there's multiple videos of it: David Lee Roth Las Vegas 3/28/23 Royale Machines - Jump with David Lee Roth Qbox673 (talk) 22:36, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
