Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth made a 45-minute conversation with Steve Baltin of Forbes and revealed that he’s one of a half-dozen frontman that after two beers, everyone can imitate.
David Lee Roth also shared his thoughts about an unimitable stars on the Rock and Metal community.
Here is his statement:
“I’m one of a half-dozen frontmen that after two beers the whole world can imitate. Everybody has a David Lee Roth imitation, just like you have a Mick Jagger imitation and now you have a Freddie Mercury imitation.”
“Who are the other frontmen?”
David Lee Roth:
“Nobody imitates Steven Tyler or Robert Plant. Those are static singers that are a little bit closer to a Frank Sinatra. I’ve been dancing, they don’t dance. They perform and they present a little closer to what David Bowie did.
Bowie didn’t dance either. Neither does Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen is a job site foreman at a construction site (laughs). I’ll imitate. [Walks around] ‘Finish those gaskets, Armin, I’m buying lunch.’ They don’t dance.”
