David Lee Roth

(hennemusic) David Lee Roth talks about his move to New York in the early 90s in the latest episode of The Roth Show. Entitled "Kayak", the Van Halen frontman tells the story of learning the sport by taking lessons and paddling around Manhattan while avoiding the police with the help of his girlfriend.

"Guerilla kayaking," explains Roth. "Karen is and was - and still is - a knockout. Cell phones are starting to come in, and she would stand around a corner on the West Side highway right around 14th street where the Sanitation department is.

The corner is big enough and sweeping enough and long enough that if she stayed there on the cell phone, she could tell us when the cops were coming. Cuz what we did was we cut a hole in the fence at the Sanitation department, pulled it apart, and that's where we snuck the boats through."

Roth goes on to describe how he and his friends would tow their kayaks through the city while gathering supplies, including flashlight, snacks, alcohol and energy drinks. Watch the episode here.
