‘How David Lee Roth Changed The World’ Book Due Next Month

December 1, 2023

Van Halen fans have something to sing about! You’ll be able to get ahold of the new book “DLR Book: How David Lee Roth Changed The World” by Darren Paltrowitz (Backbeat Books release) on January 1, ’24!

Book description: What do you do after leaving one of the world’s biggest bands? If you’re David Lee Roth, you write a memoir, become a radio host, sell a screenplay to a major studio, get certified as an EMT, play Vegas, become a certified helicopter pilot, put out bluegrass versions of your biggest hits, and learn a few languages. And then you rejoin VAN HALEN for a reunion tour.

As you’d expect, the book hits the highs and lows of Roth’s incredible career; from his start with Van Halen, to his highly publicized departure, to return as a solo performer. Author Darren Paltrowitz had access to nearly one hundred interviews to write the book! You’ll read about the rise and fall of Roth’s syndicated radio show, his tattoo skincare products., cool collaborations over the years (Steve Vai, Billy Sheehan, Gregg Bissonette, Travis Tritt, John 5 and Korn’s Ray Luzier) and more.

The book is also packed with photographs never published in book form — including exclusive photography from LIT bassist Kevin Baldes — and has an introduction by WWE Hall Of Fame inductee Diamond Dallas Page.

Cool! This’ll be a page-turner, hey? Who else would you like to see write a tell-all book?
