David Lee Roth Spotted At Sheepdog Trials
It’s the headline of the week! A rare sighting of the Van Halen frontman happened this past weekend at the most unlikely of places: the 145th Scottish Gathering And Games in Pleasanton, California.
Doug Lyle, a loyal reader of the Van Halen News Desk, had a chance encounter with Roth, who had a dog entered in the sheepdog trials.
Lyle heard the voice – and that distinctive DLR laugh – and suspected the guy behind the dark goatee and sunglasses was Roth.
After considering his options, Lyle approached the ‘stranger’ and struck up a conversation.
“I asked him if he was still with Van Halen and if they were doing anything more,” said Lyle. “He gave me a knowing smile and said: ‘You’ll be hearing from us in the next seven to eight months.’ He seemed very sincere… almost like it was a promise.”
