Wiki

David Lee Roth (often referred to as "Diamond Dave") (born October 10, 1955, Bloomington, Indiana) is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality, best known as the original lead singer of Van Halen. In addition to his work with Van Halen, Roth is a successful solo artist, having released several platinum and gold solo albums. Roth rejoined Van Halen in 2007 for a North American tour that became the highest grossing tour in the band's history.

David Lee Roth is the son of the late Nathan Roth, an ophthalmologist, and Sibyl Roth, and the brother of Allison and Lisa Roth. Roth's paternal and maternal grandparents migrated to Indiana from Russia. One of his grandmothers was from Azores, Portugal. Roth's uncle, Manny Roth, is an influential New York City nightclub owner and entertainment entrepreneur. Manny Roth built and owned the famous New York establishment Cafe Wha? in the early 1960s, when the likes of Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix were working there. Seven-year-old David Lee got his first taste of, and desire for, show business from the inside by hanging out at Cafe Wha?.

Roth moved to Pasadena, California in his teens after living in Swampscott, Massachusetts and Bloomington, Indiana.
