DAVID LEE ROTH Explains Intruder Incident

Former VAN HALEN frontman David Lee Roth spoke to Caley Cook of San Diego CityBeat about the intruder incident incident on his Pasadena property recently. "Anybody caught [on my property] at night will probably be caught in the morning," Roth said. "I saw this guy race quietly across the backyard here. So, you know, I made a lot of noise and made him lay down in the sprinkler system and the cops came and took him away. You know, one of the beauties of a 20-gauge shotgun is that you don't have to point it at anybody. In 20 languages, racking that thing twice in a silent night says, 'What are you doing here?' The police said I was insensitive to the guy's needs and I said, 'Oh, excuse me, was that low-fat crank in his pocket?' Shit. What are you doing in my backyard at 3:15 in the morning without a backstage pass! Jesus. You know, some people said that I never had a gun and that came out and I said, 'Well, I never went down the driveway to show it to them and nobody asked if I had one in the house... Maybe you're right, maybe the new low-fat meth makes you wanna just lay the fuck down and go to sleep in my sprinklers!' Give him my connection's phone number!" Read more.

Also on the Roth-related front, David blew off his interview with Buddy Seigal of Orange County Weekly and paid the price for it in an article questioning whether the former VAN HALEN frontman is really Jewish. Seigal says, "Roth stood me up on an interview for this story. Jews never stand people up, especially other Jews. We keep appointments, we return phone calls, we meet deadlines, we come in under budget, we conduct business in a professional manner and we expect the same in return. If you don't comply with us, we tell God on you and then you'll be sorry because we are, after all, the Chosen People." He gives several other reasons and advises, "The next time you decide to blow off an interview, best to remember that it's unwise to piss off a writer for a rabble-rousing communist homosexual newspaper with free reign to say anything he chooses."
