  • David Lee Roth wanted to do a solo EP’s worth of covers in between Van Halen albums.Crack session players transformed a Beach Boys classic (CALIFORNIA GIRLS); a Dan Hartman blues(EASY STREET); a Lovin’Spoonful ballad(COCONUT GROVE) and a lounge lizard standard(JUST A GIGILO /I AIN’T GOT NOBODY).This was Diamond Dave’s statement of independence from under the Van Halen banner.Unfortunately,Dave wanted to work on a movie script instead of the follow up to 1984, and he was pushed (or jumped,if you believe Dave’s version)from Van Halen.They lost the flash,heart and soul when DLR departed.
