David Lee Roth-Crazy from the heat

When I think of music for summer the top bands I think of are the Ventures and Van Halen. That of is course is real Van Halen which means with David Lee Roth. To a lesser extent I do think of Dave's solo stuff as well. I almost forgot about this one. The Diamond one looks so cool and relaxed here like he doesn't have a care in the world. Having just finished the tour for the highly successful "1984" album we may have thought that was true. However in reality it was just months before he was going to be out of Van Halen and out on his own for a long time. Maybe that was part of his charm, even though he could be a flake and even when things were rough below the surface Diamond Dave had a way of making it look like he was having the time of life.

It's the best thing DLR ever released, including his entire catalog with Van Halen.

Eat Em and Smile was a little bad.

The first two Van Halen albums, Fair Warning and 1984 are all fantastic. Woman and children first and Diver Down (yeah, I said it) are both good. I do like Crazy from the heat enough. Eat 'em and smile is good, but Skyscraper is even better.
