21 Years Ago: David Lee Roth Tries Growing Up on ‘Your Filthy Little Mouth’



Wow, has it been 21 years already? Sheesh! I said it before and I'll say it again. HUGELY underrated album. I liked reading the comments in the link. Nice to see others have the same idea about the album as well.

I imagine trying to reinvent yourself is a double edge blade. It can be done (Sting, comes to mind). But if his heart is not behind it and your presenting yourself because you think that's what people expect, that's doomed from the get go.

Ya know, I slam Dave for not being able to cut it live anymore (not that he really could before), but get this guy in a studio and on the right song and you have something pretty memorable like Ain't No Christmas. Rumors abound that this is a "diss" song against VH. Lyrics seem to point in that direction and Roth has hinted it may in fact be about VH. Anyway, very cool blues song that reminds me a little of Damn Good off of Skyscraper.

Nailed it. Very reminiscent of Damn Good, which by the way has always been my top DLR song. I rather enjoyed that.

So, what's the story behind it? Where, when, why?

Many are speculating it's DLR's swan song as he is out of the band and why it's being labeled a 'diss' song, although nothing has been confirmed or denied officially that he is in fact out. That's all I know. Just what I've read in comments and articles.

What about this song release? A one off or more to come? An album?

As far as I can tell, it's just a one-off.

You might have noticed David Lee Roth‘s version of the ’70s hit “Baker Street” playing in the background when his offbeat No Holds Bar-B-Que video was finally released recently. Now you can hear the whole thing, offered as part of the latest installment of his online Roth Show series. Check it out above.

Gerry Rafferty, who died in 2011, composed “Baker Street” around his experiences as a struggling busker in the London Underground. The song, powered along by Raphael Ravenscroft’s signature sax riff, shot to No. 2 in the U.S. in 1978, around the same time Van Halen were mounting their first world tour.

The Van Halen News Desk describes Roth’s take on “Baker Street” as “superb,” calling it a “great choice.” It’s unclear who created the backing track.

Roth isn’t the only rocker to tip his hat at the song. Slash later said that his guitar solo in “Sweet Child O’ Mine” was influenced in part by Ravenscroft’s classic sax turn on “Baker Street.” The Foo Fighters also included their own cover in the expanded version of 1997’s The Colour and the Shape; it originally appeared as a B-side to their hit single “My Hero.”

In No Holds Bar-B-Que, Roth is seen sporting a ninja costume while “Baker Street” plays in the background. The original 2002 video had never been officially released before it showed up on Roth’s YouTube feed earlier this summer.
