Idiot of the day award goes to David Lee Roth

Recommended Posts

Really? First he lost his voice, and now his mind 

Van Halen legend David Lee Roth announces he’s changed his name,

The former Van Halen front man now wants to be called “David L. Roth” or “El Roth.”

The change was inspired by the current movement in the music industry to disown words having to do with the slavery that existed in the South — which comes in response to the Black Lives Matter protests that rose up after the death of George Floyd.

Or cared?

So let me get this straight. 

If someone does something really bad, then everybody else that has that persons name, must change it?

Absolute craziness!

We are going to be running out of names pretty quick

My first name, James,  is clearly Colonialist.  I'm going to change it to Marx.  Just trying to help the Peaceful Anarchists.

I think that's a legitimate question.  Sarge's, that is.     "Virtue Signaling"  has gone past the  'ridiculous'   and is now  'sublime'.

My question was legit. Can you explain to me how DLR changing his name does any good or bad or absolutely anything?

Wait, now I get it David Lee Roth just solved racism. Thanks Dave, or Come on Dave give me a break.

All you do is come here to argue, so I fan your fire.

No surprise there, he'd look real silly, if he changed it to "David R. E. Lee Roth".

I believe, at one time not in the too distant past, the middle names of many serial killers were either Ray or Lee or Wayne. Maybe he's hiding something.

I loved Van Halen with David Lee Roth...  can't name a song worth a damn from either of them since.  I know VH has maintained a presence, but once they were off my radar - they never made it back.

Apologies El Roth...  doesn't that mean wanker in some language?
