Van Halen's David Lee Roth has changed his name.
David Lee Roth has changed his name.
The former Van Halen front man now wants to be called “David L. Roth” or “El Roth.”
Roth made the announcement via social media, posting a piece of artwork he’d created, showing a giant frog by a tiny human, with the following text about the name change:
“David ‘Lee’ Roth changes name! Diamond Dave, following Lady Antebellum’s (now ‘Lady A’) example, will be dropping the ‘Lee’ from now on. He wants us all to call him ‘David L. Roth’ or simply ‘El Roth.'”
And he ends the message, for some reason, with: “Bannana (sic) fana-fo-fana.”
Taking inspiration from Lady Antebellum changing name to Lady A, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Lee Roth has also announced he’s changed his name.
