David Lee Roth Predicted the Future

30 years ago, David Lee Roth made a prediction in a music video about what he’d look like and be up to in 2021. How close did he come?

I think he (accidentally?) predicted everything he could possibly do to offend people in the video, but missed the mark on himself by a mile.

Also, I heard this song blasting a few weekends ago while at an intersection. What an odd, deep cut to hear in the wild?!

I rolled down the window and it was coming from the Harley of gigantic biker dude. It was weird enough, I tweeted a quote from the song that seemed fitting for the times, “[I] was vaccinated with a phonograph needle.”
