On January 2, 1985, David Lee Roth appeared on Late Night with David Letterman. One of the best parts of the interview are when Letterman reads a passage from the book Everything You Want To Know About Van Halen by Gordon Matthews. The passage Dave reads is about the system that Roth and Eddie Van Halen used during their concerts to alert their roadies about a hot girl in the audience. The best part is when Roth responds back to Dave with, “Well, this is the ’80s!”. Yes is was!
