The Rockstar Ramblings: She's The Woman

Van Halen has released their second single titled “She’s The Woman” from their latest album ‘A Different Kind of Truth’, this song is one of the six new songs that were based on older material. Here’s a look…

The video starts with classic slide moves of David Lee Roth and a smiling Eddie Van Halen. Everyone having a good time? Roth follows up with his version of working the pole.

0:43 Roth shimmying across the stage as the Van Halen boys look on, is Roth entertaining the audience or the band? Sometimes it is hard to tell. I guess that’s why Diamond Dave is often referred to as an entertainer first.

The video is the band playing their small come back show at Café Wha? in New York City combined with other stages (appears to be same stage as first video “Tattoo” in a lot of shots) and still photos moving across the screen.

1:11 David Lee Roth deep in thought or trying to remember the lyrics? Discuss amongst yourselves…

1:29 A still shot of an airborne Roth. Probably not recent, but still awesome!

FAVORITE YouTube comments: 3) “She's? the Wombat!” by k4cper3k 2) “no videos should contain lots of? still photos or overalls” by changeofaddress1 and 1) “cool, but who is the new young bassist? !!” by ccbbom.

1:44 A Kodak Gallery of still shots, then we get a look at Eddie Van Halen in red pants. Good to see he still has a little flare, and is not ALL frayed sweatshirts and jeans.

2:10 Was that an album promo in the middle of the video? A distraction or genius? Discuss amongst yourselves…

2:16 Roth using his scarf to “cool down” Eddie during a guitar solo.

2:48 An ass cam (we know because it says ASS CAM) displaying what appears to be a revolver tattoo on Roth’s ass!

2:55 “Thank you very much. Yeah!”

Tattoo was shot at The Roxy, this video is a mix of arena shots as well as a few rehearsal spaces, and of course The Cafe Wha?

Picture of DLR jumping (and every other photo) is from MSG this tour.

Best part of video for me is:

@2:31 Ed makes use of DLR's dance floor.
