    Biography

    David Lee Roth is an American musician, singer, songwriter, actor, author and former radio personality. He is BEST known as Diamond Dave, for his wild, energetic stage persona and as the lead singer of Van Halen across three stints, from 1974 to 1985, in 1996 and again in 2006 to their disbandment in 2020. He is also known as a successful solo artist, releasing numerous RIAA-certified gold and platinum albums. In 2007, Roth was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame as a member of Van Halen. Roth recorded 6 albums with VH until 1985. While still a member of  the band, Roth released Crazy From The Heat, a solo EP of off-beat pop standards. Fired suddenly by the Van Halen brothers, some months before his departure their manager speculated that Roth was testing the waters of a potential separate solo career. In late 1985, Roth assembled a virtuoso supergroup, consisting of guitarist Steve Vai, bassist Billy Sheehan, and drummer Gregg Bissonette. With veteran Van Halen producer Ted Templeman producing, Roth released his debut solo album, “Eat ‘Em and Smile,” in July 1986. The album saw Roth’s return to hard rock music, but incorporated some of his eclectic musical tastes, including a jazz cover of Sinatra’s “That’s Life,” and the bluesy 1960s hit “Tobacco Road.” The album met with widespread commercial and critical success, charting at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, selling over 2 million copies in the U.S. alone. Roth and his band toured arenas in support of the record. In the summer of that year, he decided to release a Spanish-language version of the album. According to Roth lore, the decision to track new Spanish vocals over the songs was inspired by Billy Sheehan, who reportedly pitched Roth with the idea that half the Mexican population was in their 18-27 year old record buying demographic and would be the perfect audience for the record – if they could only understand the lyrics. Roth went to junior high schools that were 95 percent Spanish-speaking and did not need language coaching to re-record the vocals to “Sonrisa Salvaje.” After the new version of the album arrived in stores Spanish-speaking audiences were less than impressed with some of the liberties that Roth took with the language and the album tanked, falling out of print for years. If voted to win, ROG will reissue “Sonrisa Salvaje,” as a remastered, deluxe edition, on heavyweight color vinyl and pressed in limited quantities.

    Biography

    Killswitch Engage is an American metalcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts formed in 1999 after the disbanding of bands, Overcast and Aftershock. Bassist Mike D’Antonio collaborated with Aftershock guitarist, Adam Dutkiewicz who switched to drums and recruited guitarist Joel Stroetzel from Aftershock and vocalist Jesse Leach from Nothing Stays Gold to form Killswitch Engage. The band’s name came from an episode of the TV series, The X-Files, entitled “Kill Switch,” after writer William Gibson titled the episode after meeting the industrial band Kill Switch…Klick. They recorded and released their self-titled debut in 2000 and although it was not commercially successful, it attracted the interest of Carl Severson, who worked at Roadrunner Records at the time. Realizing that Roadrunner had the resources to promote and distribute Killswitch Engage releases, the band accepted a signing offer, declining several others from smaller labels at the time. The band went on to issue 7 releases with Roadrunner from 2002 through 2016. They initially rose to fame with their 2004 release, The End Of Heartache, which peaked at number 21 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA in 2007 for over 500,000 shipments in the U.S. The album was the first to feature vocalist Howard Jones and drummer Justin Foley. The End of Heartache was released on May 11, 2004. The album debuted in the top 40 of the Australian album charts on May 17, 2004 following a successful tour of that country with Anthrax. The album won the 2004 Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards for Best Album. The title track was nominated for Best Metal Performance for the 47th Annual Grammy Awards and they released a live DVD “(Set This) World Ablaze” in the same year. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on December 7, 2007. In 2005, The End of Heartache was ranked number 401 in Rock Hard magazine's book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time. The band has performed at festivals such as Soundwave, Wacken Open Air, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Ozzfest, Download Festival, Rock On The Range, Rock Am Ring, Mayhem Festival, Monsters Of Rock, Pointfest, Knotfest and Heavy MTL. They’ve sold over four million records in the U.S., have been considered notable within the New Wave of American Heavy Metal and are considered one of the earliest leading forces of the metalcore genre.

Falkner joined the Three O’Clock as guitarist for their album “Vermillion,” which was released on Prince’s Paisley Park Records. After the band split, Falkner moved to San Francisco and joined Jellyfish. The band’s 1990 debut was a minor chart success and received some radio and MTV play. He did session work in the early 90s before embarking on a solo career. In 1996 he released his Elektra debut album, “Jason Falkner Presents Author Unknown,” which was produced, written and performed almost entirely by Falkner.

In the early 2000s he toured with Air and contributed to albums by Beck, Aimee Mann, and Travis.
