Van Halen's David Lee Roth Explains The Language Of Video
Entitled "The Language Of Video," Roth speaks about the processes of creating films and music videos, including Van Halen's "Jump" as well as his version of "California Girls."
"'Jump' triggered a whole lot of imitations," explains Roth. "There are two versions of imitation: they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I maintain that a defense attorney invented that in a court of law to convince a jury otherwise. I believe, as Dave Mamet quotes it, that 'imitation is the sincerest form of theivery.' And we got thieved!" Watch the episode here.
