Roth Show Editor Discusses How David Lee Roth Launched the Series

(hennemusic) Last fall, Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth begin a series of online videos billed as The Roth Show. The episodes capture Roth at his rambling best, delivering monologues full of insight and humor based on his real life travels and experiences.

The Examiner caught up with Roth Show editor Shelly Toscano to discuss the creation and development of the series. "I was first hired by Dave to edit [his video entitled] "Scrapbook Chapter 1," explains Toscano.

"He likes the whole process of doing video work. He bought a Canon 5D and he loved it, but he needed an editor ... I got a call to go to Pasadena. I showed up at his house, we shook hands and got to work. We put together that first video and we had fun doing it."

"Dave and I had talked about it before the tour," she says. "We were going to work toward putting these videos together and have him talking. With the album and tour it got pushed aside, but it was something we were always going to do."

"After [the] tour, we got to The Roth Show. He sat down and started talking about tattoos and sarcasm. [Videographer] Mark [Rojas] filmed that, sent it to me and we put it together." A lot more.
