David Lee Roth


David Lee Roth (born October 10, 1954) is an American rock vocalist, musician, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality. In 2007, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Roth is best known as the original (1974–1985) and current (2006–present) lead singer of hard rock band Van Halen. He is also known as a successful solo artist, releasing numerous RIAA-certified Gold and Platinum albums. After more than two decades apart, Roth re-joined Van Halen in 2006 for a North American tour that became the highest grossing in the band's history and one of the highest grossing of that year. In 2012, Roth and Van Halen released the comeback album A Different Kind of Truth.


In late 1985, Roth assembled a virtuoso solo band, consisting of guitarist Steve Vai (previously of Frank Zappa's band), bassist Billy Sheehan (previously of Talas), and drummer Gregg Bissonette (previously of Maynard Ferguson's big band). With veteran Van Halen producer Ted Templeman producing, Roth released his debut solo LP, Eat 'Em and Smile in July 1986. The album saw Roth return to hard rock music, but also incorporated some of his more eclectic musical tastes, ranging from jazz to speed metal. Eat 'Em and Smile met with widespread commercial and critical success, charting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, and selling over 2 million copies in the U.S. alone.[13] Roth and his band toured arenas extensively in support of Eat 'Em and Smile (see Eat 'Em and Smile Tour), before returning to the studio in 1987 to record a follow-up.

In January 1988, Roth released Skyscraper, a more experimental recording featuring the hit single "Just Like Paradise." Co-produced by Roth and Steve Vai under the working title "Cliffhanger", Skyscraper peaked at #6 on the Billboard album chart and ultimately sold two million copies in the US. Soon after Skyscraper's release, Billy Sheehan left Roth's band due to musical differences.[14] He was replaced in time for the album's support tour with bassist Matt Bissonette, (drummer Gregg Bissonette's brother.)[15] The international, arena tour was a major production featuring, at different points during each concert, Roth surfing above the audience on a surfboard suspended from an arena's rafters, and lowered into the center of each arena in a descending boxing ring (see Skyscraper Tour). Both parts of the stage show were featured in the "Just Like Paradise" music video.[16] The show also featured the band in a calypso segment playing Caribbean steel drums and in an unplugged segment where the band performed acoustic covers of some rock and roll classics.[17] Following the tour for Skyscraper, Steve Vai left Roth's band to pursue a solo career and record and tour with Whitesnake.












Jeff Falkowski is a New York City based guitarist best know for his playing and recordings with David Lee Roth from 2004 to 2011. He has also been Dave's guitar teacher throughout this time.

Jeff also plays guitar and bass in sessions and live performances with several different acts, including Blake Fleming of The Mars Volta, scored music for ESPN Friday Night Fights and several independent movies. He has performed on Fox TV's Fearless Music which is broadcast all over the U.S. and internationally and has played on live-in-studio radio broadcasts with the band Electric Black. He is also a well established guitar and bass teacher in Manhattan.

Jeff is from New York but after high school moved to L.A. and formed the band Opus Fluke. They earned early rave reviews and an eventual record deal with V2 Records. After they disbanded he headed to Palm Springs, CA at the behest of Chris Goss (Producer of Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age) to play guitar in a band called SpeedQueen he'd be producing. They put out several releases on Imagine That Records while keeping up a heavy touring schedule on the west coast.

After several years on the west coast Jeff moved back to Manhattan in his home state of New York. There he made friends with Jim Kimball who ran Ludlow Guitar in NYC. So one day when David Lee Roth walked into the his shop and informed him that he'd just moved to the neighborhood and was in need of a guitar teacher, he quickly volunteered Jeff. About an hour later he was meeting Dave, who was sitting curbside drinking margaritas and making friends fast. He told Jeff he wanted to learn Django Reinhardt, gypsy jazz, flamenco, Brazilian world beat, salsa, rumba, reggae, and a few things Jeff had never even heard of. For the next several years Jeff went on one the great musical journeys of all time with a truly legendary performer, master musician, tireless worker and all around spectacular human being. Learning and playing numerous styles, arranging big band and ragtime piano into pieces for 2 guitars.

They eventually went into the studio in 2007 to record some of the music they'd been working on. This includes Take Sarava, a song that has Dave singing in Portuguese (He takes Portuguese lessons in spare time). It was yet another outstanding experience. To be playing the same role as some of most revered guitarists in history must have been somewhat surreal. After playing together for several years their musical chemistry is obvious from the outset which leads to an ultimately engaging performance of a beautiful song. Since first seeing the light of day for the first time in July 2008 it has been setting the blogs and forums on fire all over the world while receiving air play on radio stations all over the country.
