Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth discussed working in a hospital and witnessing victims for horrible shootings on a new episode of The Roth Show. A Van Halen icon revealed a massive paycheck photo over the weekend.
“I was going to work at San Gabriel community which I ultimately did. We were called ‘tech porters’ or whatever. We did every job possible. It was 1972 the emergency room out at L.A general was the stuff man that’s where you wanted to go work they had whatever it was called C Block or C cell and there were 10 beds there, and all the modern techniques that we use today were being instituted for the very first times out there.
We were seeing a lot of [shooting] victims coming in. I worked the night shift. My pop made goddamn sure I told you about North Tower while he made sure of a couple other fucking things numbered number one that in an effort to stop me from smoking that I go quote downstairs at the hospital I don’t think this exists anymore out there. So I’m pretty comfortable talking about downstairs is where that extreme trauma went.”
The wife of Eddie Van Halen recently reacted to a rumored reason he may be rejecting a Van Halen tour. Roth added on his show, “The stuff where even the best combat nurses felt their bile rise people who had to have pieces of their jaw removed from smoking and that kind of a thing and he made me look at it work with it.
He also made me deal with some [shooting] victims that’s where they went downstairs and it was early in medicine and I learned early and now I’m gonna talk in my father’s voice because the first thing you got to do when somebody gets shot is calm everybody else down to be sure that you slow their heart rates down and you get everything done at lightning fucking speed.”
A Van Halen icon called out big name music business ‘crooks’ a few days ago. Michael Anthony wrote on Instagram over the weekend, “Hope you all are having a great weekend!! #familytime #outonthebay##labordayweekend.”
Sammy Hagar commented, “Here we go again.” Michael Anthony responded, “@sammyhagar brother, this is what it’s all about!!🍻❤️” A fan chimed in, “We used to do bay cruises in a dingy, wave to John Wayne. I think I saw you play near Puddingstone around that time. Could be wrong.” MetalheadZone transcribed The Roth Show comments.
