David Lee Roth was born on October 1954, in Indiana, USA. He is singer, songwriter, author, and actor. Roth is mostly famous for such hits as “California Girls”, “Just a Gigolo”, and “Just Like Paradise”. He also performed many hit songs with the band Van Halen.
When Roth was a teenager, he moved from Indiana to Pasadena, where he finished high school. At a city college, he met the Van Halen brothers. Roth didn’t graduate college and went on to work in a hospital.
In the early 1970’s, Roth tried to audition for Van Halen but wasn’t accepted. He rented the band his music equipment. After a while, the brothers decide to cut the renting costs and allowed Roth to join them as a vocalist. At first, they called themselves Mammoth but then it turned out that a band with similar name already existed, and David convinced them to switch to Van Halen.
In 1978, the band released their first album Van Halen, which was a bit hit. Right after the LP was released, David became a celebrity, well known to the public for his unique behavior on the stage. Even though more attention was paid to his manners than to the way he sang, David’s voice was an integral part of the Van Halen sound.
