The drummer of the nu-metal band Korn, Ray Luzier has recalled the years when he played for Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth‘s solo band and defined him as a rich rockstar and fun with his money while unveiling his respect for him.
During the latest conversation he made on That Jamieson Show, Luzier has reminisced about his short-termed career with the iconic singer and artist, David Lee Roth.
When the interviewer opened up about the insane music video of David Lee Roth on the song, ‘No Holds Bar-B-Que,’ in which the drummer also appeared on, Ray said that Lee Roth is very eccentric and an interesting guy.
He continued and described his utmost love for him by claiming there will never be another guy like David, he’s one of a kind. Luzier revealed about the day when they were filming the music video that he’s the only one left with David Lee Roth on the set, where is Roth’s house, even after his bodyguard had left.
Luzier is well known for his work with David Lee Roth, for whom he played drums from 1997 to 2000, and then again from 2001 to 2005, two years before joining Korn. He took part in the 1998 album, ‘DLR Band,’ and 2003 album, ‘Diamond Dave,’ of Lee Roth.
Here’s what Ray Luzier said about David Lee Roth during the interview:
“It’s called ‘rich rockstar and fun with his money.’ Let’s face it, there will never be another guy like David – he’s one of a kind, I love him to death. He’s very eccentric, he’s a very interesting guy.
I’m not gonna rip on anybody, but he’s a little bit… I remember when I was in his house one day when we were doing this video, filming it, and there’s Playmates, and little people…
And he goes nuts and says, ‘Hey, kid, your momma must have taught you some good patience.’ And I go, ‘What do you mean?’ And he goes: ‘You’re the only one left! My guitar player, my guitar tech, my bodyguard, it’s only you!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I must be nuts!”
