Van Halen icon David Lee Roth had a recent interview with Miguel Tost of YourEDM and revealed how he broke his two molars 20 years ago.

Miguel Tost asked:

“As the Prince of Larceny, you have been busy being the last year with your new skincare product for people with tattoos. Can you tell us a little bit about how it came about?”

David Lee Roth responded:

“Approximately 20 years ago, I caught Dengue Fever in the South Pacific and broke my two molars.

I walked around without the two teeth on my upper side of my mouth for almost two years before I got it fixed.

And I swore from that camping trip forward that I was going to remedy everything that I had gotten wrong. Because I am an expert in everything you can do wrong. Everything you shouldn’t do.

Have you seen the free solo film with Alex Honnold where he solos El Capitán?”
