Anonny Mouse David Lee Roth-BLUEGRASS 'Jump!' ?????? (26) David Lee Roth-BLUEGRASS 'Jump!' ?????? 07 Jun 06


Well--I've seen some bizarre stuff, but David Lee Roth showed up on Leno last nite with a Bluegrass rendition of the Van Halen tune he made so famous, "JUMP!" Had a fiddler, mandolin player, upright double bass, a Taylor (maybe GA) and I think a Martin dred cutaway (one debuted at NAMM with some new "Aura" PU system in it), and a 5 string that looked like the 5th drone was part of the headstock, not down 5 frets off the side.

Anyway, David is obviously changing his image--gone the long locks (wasn't he going bald?) and replaced by a neatly trimed head of hair (or toupe) sportshirt and jeans. Actually, Jump worked pretty good as an acoustic/bluegrass song, with the fiddle, guitar and 5 string dividing up Eddie's guitar solo...banjo player was darn competent. Just kinda--uh--"whats wrong with this picture-ish." Dave also looked a bit confused as to who was handling the instruments at the "break"--at one point had to skip to stage-left so the flatpicker on what I think was a Martin, wailed away. Verrrrrrrrrrrrry interesting!
