A few days ago, I called bullshit on the story that David Lee Roth could possibly maybe almost have died but probably not. For the reasons that I stated, along with a vague odor of bullshit wafting from the tale, those reports just didn’t sound authentic. Interestingly, Roth has now confirmed that, at the time of the alleged nut-allergy inspired erratic-driving incident, he was not in Canada, nor is he even allergic to nuts!
I was in Canada only from July first through the fourth for a performance at the Quebec City Summer Festival. I had no encounters or incidents with the police. The only thing I’m allergic to is criticism. — Love, Dave
Yeah, and now those Canadian police are all angry that they look like idiots now. If they had only realized that Diamond Dave is immortal, all of this could have been avoided.
