Remember That Time David Lee Roth Was On ‘The Sopranos’? What Was Going On There?

by Tim K

Let’s rewind the clock. The year is 2004. Shrek 2 is in theaters. Spider-Man 2 is in theaters. Passion of the Christ is in theaters. But, even more importantly than all of that, 2004 marks the year when David Lee Roth was on The Sopranos for some reason. Remember that? What was going on there? What’s the story?

For those who don’t quite recall, here’s a refresher:

Check Out The Video Below, Wherein David Lee Roth Plays Poker With Tony Soprano:

Yep, that’s them! That’s the two of them. Tony Soprano, looking pretty much par-for-the-course for Tony… and there, to his left, sits David Lee Roth. Do you catch him? Look carefully! Here, maybe watch the video again.

In Case You Missed It The First Time, Check Out This Video With David Lee Roth In It (Look Carefully This Time!):

Right there!!! Yep, that’s him! The “I’m hot for teachers!” Man himself.

Now, you’re probably thinking, “That’s not Diamond Dave. That guy’s hair is weird and dead and yellow. DLR looks way cooler than that…”

Here’s Why You’re Wrong Re: David Lee Roth Looking Cooler Than That!

Here’s the thing you gotta remember: This episode was made in 2004… NOT 1984. The Diamond Dave everyone imagines in their mind is that cool young guy who sings in Van Halen, right? Like, you probably expect THIS guy:

But nope, that’s not Dave in 2004. In 2004, Dave was actually an old tan weirdo! So that’s probably why you didn’t recognize him.

So What Happens In This Sopranos Episode? Why Is David Lee Roth There? Does Anyone Explain It?

Nope! Or if they did, we just don’t know about it. This article is merely here to serve as a reminder that it DID happen… which is pretty interesting to think about! Thank you! Goodbye.
