'''David Lee Roth''' (b. 1955 in Bloomington, Indiana) is an American hard rock singer who first became famous as, and is best known as, the lead singer in Music/VanHalen. Roth famously split from the group after the ''1984'' album and was replaced by Sammy Hagar, setting off what may be the single biggest FandomRivalry in music. His solo work, starting with ''Crazy from the Heat,'' helped launch the career of Music/SteveVai.

Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: His solo career is pretty much the Roth years of Van Halen continued while Van Halen went a different direction.

Added DiffLines:

* ReadTheFinePrint: If you're the promoter and Van Halen tells you to put a bowl of M&M's backstage, and there'd better not be any brown M&M's in the bowl, do it. You ''do not'' want David Lee Roth to see a brown M&M in that bowl. If he sees one, it means there is a very good chance you did not follow the technical specifications for all the equipment and safety meaures in their show. That means the show may not go on, which pisses off Van Halen, their fans, and also comes straight out of your pocket.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Nobody did ''being a rock star'' better than David. Say what you want about his ego, he had the talent to back it up, the personality to make it work, and the business savvy to keep himself in the black. The whole "no brown M&M's" thing was just a very clever way to make certain the promoters did ''their'' job so ''he'' could do his job.

** Inverted when he briefly chose a new career path: he [[http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/life/people/2004-11-16-david-lee-roth_x.htm worked as an emergency medical technician in New York City]]. He purposely avoided bringing attention to himself because he "didn't want to diminish what [he] was trying to do."
