The Steel Panther frontman was the lead singer for the Roth-era Van Halen tribute band Atomic Punks from 1994 to 2008, where he had the nickname David Lee Ralph.
Roth released "Eat 'Em And Smile" in the summer of 1986 following his the success of his 1985 EP "Crazy From The Heat" and his departure from Van Halen that same year.

"We recorded and recorded and recorded and recorded," says Springsteen. "We were in the studio day after day after day, you know. I probably worked the hardest on some of things that ended up as outtakes…you never knew, I never knew. I didn't know where it was going."
The 4CD/3DVD package offers the original double album alongside "The Ties That Bind" - a 10-track album that Springsteen recorded in 1979 as a follow up to 1978's "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" but never released.
The set also includes 22 outtakes from the studio sessions alongside an hour-long documentary/interview with Springsteen and a legendary 1980 concert filmed at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.

Frontman Corey Taylor had the following to say to Metal Hammer about the cover track, "If you're going to cover something, you want to go for the best. It's no secret that I'm a huge Maiden fan.
"Running Free had the spirit of what we were looking for - it's kick-ass, it's driving, it's got the Maiden guitar breaks." The Straight Outta Burbank EP is set to be released this week as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday campaign. Check out the song streamhere.
Jones says the band has about twenty ideas that they're currently working on, and when asked specifically if singer Maynard James Keenan had heard the material, he answered in the affirmative.
"Yeah. We have an FTP and a Dropbox and we're in communication. He's got other stuff he does, so we keep him in the loop, and he has written lyrics, but he's still working on that and he'll commit. The best thing for all of us is when the song is done. I don't write leads until the song is done. You want to get a vibe. And Maynard can work on lyrics, but until the song's done and he knows how the end is, he's still figuring out the flow."
"The thing with Tool is you have four critical thinkers who like different stuff, so our process is not an easy one but it's a very rewarding one. So yes, he is exposed to new music. It's always been this way and it probably will always be this way and it's just how people work."
He also shared his thoughts on Maynard's recent controversial comments about being conned into playing a Halloween show with the band. Read about thathere.
The band had the following to say about the Paris postponement, "We are still on tour in Europe, and we are evaluating each show day by day. A lot of work and analysis goes into each decision. Since the events in Paris last week, the situation is still very chaotic - a lot of misinformation - and a lot of uncertainty in some places.
"But the most important factor is the safety of the fans which we are not willing to compromise. As a result, for now we will have to postpone the Paris show. Please stay tuned for more info."
The band still has three dates scheduled on the tour including a show in Germany on Wednesday (Nov. 25), Brussels on Thursday and London on Saturday.
The band will perform at the Accorhotels Arena in Bercy on December 6 and 7, with the second show filmed and broadcast December 7 on HBO at 9:00 p.m. ET.
"So much that was taken from Paris on the tragic night of November 13 is irreplaceable," said Bono, speaking from Dublin ahead of Monday's opening show of four in their hometown. "For one night, the killers took lives, took music, took peace of mind - but they couldn't steal the spirit of that city.
"It's a spirit our band knows well and will try to serve when we return for the postponed shows on December 6th and 7th. We're going to put on our best for Paris."
"The band wanted us to reschedule as soon as possible so that they could honor the commitment to their audience," added U2 Innocence + Experience tour promoter and producer Arthur Fogel. Read morehere.
Weiland tells South Detroit Soundhouse: "It's way harder. We used to have marketing budgets of a couple of million dollars, now it's like $75,000. You have to spend a lot of time on the road to make up for the loss of income from selling records.
"I'm not as keen on it as I was when I was in my 20s, especially being happily married and not being able to see my kids and stepson as much. My wife comes out and visits me on the road for a week or two at a time. But this is a long tour, nine weeks, so I'm missing her a lot." Read morehere.
The Ghost Inside's Andrew Tkaczykt, Jonathan Vigil and Zach Johnson were said to be in critical condition at University Medical Center after being airlifted from the scene.
In an update posted on Facebook, Riley says: "The last 48 hours have seen everyone's condition improve. We are surrounded by lots of loved ones and the vibe today is very positive. Asking again that you keep sending good juju our way and keep the families of the two drivers that lost their lives in your thoughts.
"It will be a few more days before we share any individual details. If you've seen any of the pictures that are floating around you know the serious nature of the situation and hope you understand the need for a little privacy and discretion.
"The doctors here are phenomenal and we are in the most capable of hands. Thank you for the love and support. Life is swinging hard. We are swinging harder." Read more including Jim's full posthere.
She was born with "vascular abnormalities" that required immediate attention and the band asked fans to help raise $2000 to pay for the treatment.
A GoFundMe page set up by Betit has already surpassed that target, bringing in $3100 so far. The surgery included a procedure to remove a growth from little Harper's hip.
Craig Betit says: "Harper's surgery went fantastic. The growth has been removed and the incision closed up. If all goes well we should be back home within 48 hours. Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers, kind words, and all-round support."
Tests are ongoing to uncover the exact details of the baby's condition, and the money raised will help the couple continue to make the long journeys for her treatment without being under extra financial strain. Read more including the full post from the bandhere.
No Devotion were formed from the ashes of Lostprophets. On the video, the band say: "Every one of us had a hand in helping out, with our good friend Liza directing us.
"It was a really great experience. We're definitely gonna do another one soon - darker, more cinematic visuals perhaps. And, yes, we plan to get on the road again too." Watch the videohere.
Haidar says the band drew on influences from across the world for the album. He adds: "I love listening to artists from outside Europe and outside the US - from Israel, from North Africa, from the Middle East, from far Asia as well.
"This is tribal, ethnic and world music overall, it has such a big power and just to combine it with rock music, which is also very powerful, it's an explosion of emotions." Stream the albumhere.
The performance is one of three shows J Willgoose Esq and Wrigglesworth will play this month. They were forced to postpone five planned appearances in Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham and Norwich due to family issues.
Those dates will now take place in February. The duo have just released their Sputnik/Korolev EP and have issued Petar Dundov's remix of Sputnik from the record. Hear ithere.

Beggs says: "The track was inspired by the speeches of General Dwight D Eisenhower and his warning to the free world about the rise of the Independent Industrial Military Complex." Watch the videoshere.
The band's Leo Koperdraat says: "For the new album we tried to write more compact and focused songs with interesting lyrics. We spent a lot of time and energy on the arrangements.
Brett Kull plays a crucial role again, adding guitars, keyboards and his unique background vocals. Despite the fact that the songs are more focused the progressive rock influences are still very much in place." Read morehere.
Lambert tells Absolute Radio: "I did some studying. I felt I really needed to. I was pretty familiar with them, but when I first started working with them, that's when I went onto the internet and scoured everything."
He adds a Mercury performance in Montreal stood out. "He's running around in shorts, with no shoes on. Watching him in that zone really made me understand him.
"He just didn't give a sh*t. He was like, 'I'm going to do whatever I want.' I think he kind of defined what a rock star was to me. He doesn't actually care - and he's so fabulous doing it." Read morehere.
But he insists there will be no "drastic change" when they eventually get to work on their sixth album. On what dictates the direction of new material, he tells Substream: "It depends where we're at as artists and musicians at that point in time because we started writing To Those Left Behind a year ago. At this point right now, we're not really thinking about writing. So when we do start writing it, it'll be interesting to see what we're influenced by at the time.
"We're always going to be Blessthefall, it's always going to be our sound. We're not going to turn into something crazy. It won't be a drastic change, I don't want to say that. You'll always be able to tell it's us.
"We had such a great time making this album, and doing Hollow Bodies has opened up a few doors for us and we've been exploring some new sounds here and there. Then this record, we just kept with that." Read morehere.
Joey Armstrong ended up playing drums on the album, with his dad laying down bass tracks. Joey Armstrong says: "Working on this project was super rad for me. I'm a musician who wants to be in the studio and I got lucky with Matt and Josh who both write killer songs. I learned the songs in the studio right before we recorded and it felt natural.
"These songs have influences from older bands and I listened to a lot of Elvis Costello's drummer Pete Thomas to get a vibe for what I wanted to do. I'm really excited with how they turned out and can't wait for people to hear them." Watch the videohere.
Creeper will be embarking on the tours in support of their EP The Callous Heart, which was released in September after they signed a deal with Roadrunner Records.
The band say: "We are so excited to announce today that next year we will be heading out on our first-ever headline tour. What's better still is that we have our best friends Grader joining us. I hope you're all as excited as we are." See the dateshere.
Shrapnel Records' founder Mike Varney says: "The distribution landscape has changed dramatically in the last 10 years, requiring greater staffing with expertise in digital distribution.
"Although the Shrapnel Label Group will continue making new records, the expanded distribution and accompanying administration of the back catalog was something we felt could be best served by a larger company."
He continues: "As a pioneer in digital distribution with a tremendous track record of more than 15 years, The Orchard was in a stronger position to effectively realize this for our catalogue." Read morehere.
This song was a crucial part of the ANCIENT EVIL storyline. The guitar players had most of the music to the song already composed when I came into the track. Normally we write all together but this one was mostly together.
Since we were writing an epic horror concept story I had the feeling this was the one for this part of the story that took place on the high seas. I had envisioned that this song had a big ship on the sea with the classic lightning and heavy seas crashing vibe. The speed of it made it the perfect combination.
We added this killer black metal voice section in the middle. That added the creepy vibe that was needed to make this song extra horrific. I think that the opening scream sets the tone for the thrashing that is to come. The intro plodding part was also kind of different from what we normally do and sets up the speed fest nicely.
Once we had our meetings with the record label about which of the 14 songs we would choose to make the music video, although I had a different idea, they unanimously choose this song. It would be the first real music video we had ever done and it came out better than even I had imagined it. For those of you who have not seen it, check it out. It looks like we did a song for the movie ANCIENT EVIL movie and not the other way around!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video here and learn more about the albumright here!
The Redemption Of The Devil was due to debut at the International Documentary Film Festival, which runs in Amsterdam from November 18 to 29. The film follows the band on the lead-up to the release of latest album Zipper Down.
The BBC reports that the film was pulled as the timing felt inappropriate after the band's show at the Bataclan in the French capital last week was the scene of a deadly terror attack in which 89 people were killed as part of a wider operation which saw a total of 130 murdered in Paris. Extremist group IS claimed responsibility for the assault.
Meanwhile, EODM's cover of Duran Duran track Save A Prayer reached no.53 in the UK Singles Chart after fans launched a campaign to get it to number one. Organiser say that, despite not hitting their goal, they are thrilled with the international response.
A statement on the Eagles Of Death Metal For No.1 Facebook page reads: "No.1 in the Rock Chart in 11 countries, no.1 in the Worldwide Rock Chart, no.1 in Portugal Main Chart, no.1 in the Amazon UK Main Chart and no.53 in the actual chart we were originally trying for.
"But what a glorious failure, look what we achieved around the globe and not forgetting that all of the royalties proceeds will be donated by Duran Duran to a worthy and unifying cause. We weren't expecting other countries' fans to get involved so it's been a wonderful and welcome surprise. Here's to those who went out to have a good time in Paris and never came home." Read morehere.
He tells Revolver: "Mrityu was initially intended to be a black metal band that I was never going to tell anybody I was in. I was going to make the music, and it was going to be pretty true to the 90s second wave-style-black metal - sort of like Darkthrone, early Dimmu Borgir, early Emperor. But while Mrityu has its roots in black metal, it's become something so much more. It's not just black metal - it's anything I've ever wanted to try.
"Ihsahn from Emperor will be producing it, and he's co-written several songs with me. We'll also be recording it in Notodden, Norway, where all the Emperor records were done." Read morehere.
Miller's band will be joined by Mardsen, Del Bronham and others. It will focus on the music of those who provided Miller's main inspiration, including Rory Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix and Gary Moore.
Veteran guitarist Miller was forced to cancel a European tour after he was left with a paralyzed right arm and robbed of the ability to walk. Since then he's made progress with the help of specialist - and he's vowed to play guitar again. Read morehere.

It features guest appearances from Nightwish's Troy Donockley and Ayreon mastermind Arjen Lucassen, who plays the solo on the album's title track. Findlay says: "Having written and sung for this musical genius both in the past in Ayreon and working with him again recently for The Theater Equation, it made perfect sense to ask him to contribute a solo for the album, for which he has worked his usual spine chilling, other-worldly magic. We now have all mixes with only a few minor tweaks to go before completion."
The lineup is completed by guitarists Chris Johnson and Dave Kilminster, bassist Stu Fletcher, drummer Alex Cromarty, vocalists Irene Jansen and Angela Gordon and Remko de Landmeter on Bansuri. Check out a videohere.
Marsh had the following to say, "I wasn't planning to make another album just yet, but I had a bit of time between projects in the studio and I came up with a few ideas.
"So I set up some microphones and spent seven days running back and forth, recording as I was writing. It was a lot of fun, and I quite often began with the rhythms, rather than chords, which is something I haven't tried before." Read morehere.
