David Lee Roth Sings Bluegrass
Tonight (in Phoenix) I knew the world had turned upside down and I was in Bizarro Land, because I turned on the Tonight Show only to find David Lee Roth singing the 1980's Van Halen hit, Jump - backed by a bluegrass band. Yes, a BLUEGRASS band. Even though it was 1:30 AM in Houston, I had to call Marilyn and tell her about the most surreal experience I could NEVER have imagined in the days when Van Halen ruled MTV. I still believe David Lee Roth has a great bluesy voice, but I don't think he should switch genres (at least not to bluegrass) just yet. It's just too much of a paradox.
