6 Times David Lee Roth Dominated The Internet In Honor Of His 60th Birthday

60 years ago today, one of the greatest frontmen in the history of rock n’ roll let out his first cry and he’s been making noise ever since. David Lee Roth made his bones as a member of legendary Southern California band Van Halen who forever changed hard rock with their boisterous party anthems and the over the top personalities. Only an exhibitionist of epic proportions could share the stage with Eddie Van Halen, whose technique and tone revolutionized electric guitar playing, and DLR perfectly fit the bill with his mane of bleach blonde hair, shirt agape, loud screams and absolutely hilarious on stage banter.

Any casual hard rock fan knows about Roth’s firing from the band, his storied solo career and return to center stage, sandwiched between two generations of Van Halens. What’s less known is Diamond Dave’s robust internet presence and sideline as a meme generating machine thanks to his outsize character and legacy. He has been parodied, glorified, turned into a video game and even has his own Youtube channel to boot. In honor of the big guy’s birthday check out 6 times he has absolutely dominated the World Wide Web and say a “boze-de-boze-de-bop, se-de-bop” in honor of the forever loudest dude in the room.
