Talking back to 80s music, 45

You were a gigolo, I think you mean.  Now you’re just a confused-looking middle-aged guy in inappropriately tight pants.

“Just a Gigolo,” David Lee Roth

  1. BINGO!

  2. And crazy Einstein-looking hair to boot.

  3. Mr. Gere is such a Richard.

  4. But…but…he’s Diamond Dave.  Which means he’s not Sammy. 

    And, as a sidebar, Dave still doesn’t look as ridiculous as Louis Prima when he sang it.

    Just sayin’, though.  It’s not like I’m in his fan club or something.

  5. I hadn’t done one of these in a while, so I thought I’d toss one out just to stay in game shape.

  6. What happened to his face? And his hair? Did you see his cameo on the Sopranos? Lot of mileage on him; I didn’t even recognize him, though of course he looked vaguely familiar.

  7. Well, I don’t know about aging paramedics, but I hear firemen gets the ladies.

  8. What will they say about me?

    I hope they don’t say that I got busted for tryin’ to buy a dime bag in Washington square, that much I can hope for.

    Never mind ruining the best rock band of the 80’s. That’s almost an afterthought at this point…….

    TW: school…….as in, everyone reading this who understands the joke is FREAKING OLDE…..

  9. Never mind ruining the best rock band of the 80’s. That’s almost an afterthought at this point…….

    The 80s are kind of fuzzy but…

    The way I remember it, the brothers kicked him out.

  10. Insulting David Lee Roth on Michele Catalano’s birthday?  That’s harsh, man.

  11. DLR is between the cracks, fer sherr.  He’s too old for the kids, and too dirty for the Vegas crowd. 

    I heartily recommend his book, though: Crazy From The Heat.

  12. Actually, the older Dave gets the more spot on for Vegas he is.  If he can just get himself some fake hair and a girdle he’ll have it made.

  13. If he can just get himself some fake hair and a girdle he’ll have it made.

    He doesn’t have those already??? confused

  14. I never thought I’d see the day where I’d hear, “…too dirty for Vegas.”

  15. What goes on in Diamond Dave’s pants, stays in Diamond Dave’s pants!

    Turing: music.  As in, “Remember when it was about the music, and not about the spandex pants?”

  16. Awww c’mon, guys.  Cut him some slack.  The man’s keeping up a commitment here as a paramedic when he could be out self-indulgicating.  Yeah, spandexified gyrating at his age presents an irresistible target, but anyone who takes his ambulance rides as seriously as he does probably has a sense of humor about his image at concerts.

    HCT wink

  17. Oh leave the poor guy alone. Heeeeeeeeee ain’t got no-booooooodeeeee.

  18. For HotCuppaTea:

    “C’mon Dave, Gimme a break…”

    “Whoahhaahooa, Oooone breeak, coooomin’ up!”

  19. Isn’t making fun of David Lee Roth a form of anti-Semitism? I thought the Weisenthal Center made some statement to the effect of “Leave David Lee Roth, Gene Simmons, Mark Knopfler, and Joey Ramone alone….”

  20. …driving an ambulance.

  21. Never mind ruining the best rock band of the 80’s.



    David Lee Roth ruined Dexy’s Midnight Runners???  I always wondered who did that!

  22. Not if you was the last immigrant grocer on the face of the earth… honey.

  23. Actually, the older Dave gets the more spot on for Vegas he is.

    I saw DLR’s Vegas lounge mambo act – yes, really – about 8 years ago at Caesar’s Tahoe, and it was truly the act Diamond Dave was meant to play.  12-piece band, female dancers, the works.  Trust me on this one.

  24. Passed, senks author

  25. Every body is good for a make over once every 5 years.
