DAVID LEE ROTH Performs In Richmond: Photos Available

In other news, Roth recently spoke to KNAC.com about his upcoming album, "Diamond Dave", due on July 8 through Magna Carta Records. "It's almost all cover tunes, the stuff that I grew up shoplifting in the '60s," he said. "It's familiar bands but not the familiar tunes. Most of what you get on Top 40 is really low fat, high sugar. I'm an American. I like high fat, high sugar . . . The music is as familiar as your own convictions, whether they're religious or prior. Also, this stuff is all from the '60s but it's not flower power, not at all GRATEFUL DEAD. It is the element of '60s that I grew up with . . . This music goes with salt water beautifully. This music goes with lake water or river water. If you're stuck with somebody, friends or loved ones, and there's a hurricane raging outside and it's time to break out the tequila early, this music goes beautifully with that. That's what I've always represented. I've called myself the Toastmaster General but I've kind of updated that now. Now I'm the Patron Saint of Larceny." Read more here.
