DLR’s Original Solo Band Reuniting For ‘Eat ‘Em And Smile’ Anniversary

Well here's a unique show for the holiday week...

The members of David Lee Roth's original solo band -- guitarist Steve Vai, bassist Billy Sheehan and drummer Gregg Bissonnette -- are reuniting on Wednesday (November 25) to play Roth's 1985 Eat 'Em and Smile album as part of the weekly Ultimate Jam Night at the Lucky Strike Live Hollywood/Highland club in Los Angeles. Roth's role will be filled by Steel Panther frontman Michael Starr (aka Ralph Saenz) at the 30th anniversary tribute to the album.

The original Roth group was together for one album and tour; Sheehan left after that, with Vai and Bissonnette sticking around a bit longer. More information about the show can be found at
