Will the real David Lee Roth please stand up?

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t have a clue what David Lee Roth looks like anymore. I can only picture him in videos from the 80s, such as California Girls, Just a Gigalo and Jump with Van Halen.

That’s why I’m not too surprised when people in Oakland, Ontario (near Brantford) throught a guy recovering from a peanut attack was Roth. The man was driving erratically, and the Ontario Provincial Police pulled him over. They realized he was having an allergic reaction, and brought him to the hospital.

After he had recovered, the guy went to a bar with nurses and doctors, and even got on stage and sang a song with the band.

According to one story in the Hamilton Spectator (found here) “Dean Hajas, a local songwriter and record producer, says Roth is an old friend and stayed at his Oakland home for three weeks in May and June. Hajas says he met Roth while working in Los Angeles in 1993.”

Hajas now denies that Roth stayed there. Plus, another guy recorded music with the imposter, and now wants his tunes back.

Even though I couldn’t reconginze Roth now, there should have been a couple of clues that he wasn’t real:

1) Is David Lee Roth allergic to peanuts? Apparently not. He said in a statement that “the only thing I’m allergic to is criticism.”

2) Roth was performing in a concert the night he was pulled over in New York. Did not one resident in the town check out Roth’s web site while he was visiting, and notice that he was supposed to be in another country?

3) If you spend three weeks in a small town in Ontario to get away from it all (I’m assuming, why else would he be there?), would he not be dressed up as flashy as what he is on stage? Wayne Gretzky doesn’t try to get away from it all by wearing his hockey jersey, does he?

    Thanx A HEEP
    The fact that OPP pulled a man over and rushed him to the hospital to save his life should be commended. The “boys in Blue” have a hell of a time on the front lines of providing safety to the community at large, and should be praised and assisted when a “job well done” is looking for praise. However, OPP released this privacy to the MEDIA with the intent of showing the public that the force is with us and keeping our ROCK STARS on the straight and narrow has its ups and downs. CTV showed up at my house and interviewed the neighbours without verifying the validity of the claim with myself. Later that eve they ran the edition with follow up by radio stations and Newspapers around the World. When the MEDIA finally got hold of myself, I decided to utilize this event to expose many facets of MEDIA, Entertainment, Intellectual Property Infringement and Government Enforcement Agencies. If the MEDIA runs my interveiw in its unedited full length, the publics ability to decide for themselves if TRUTH is being reported (or not), would be in the hands of the many. For a century and a half we have been told that ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL invented the telephone. It turns out the AGB slipped Western Union 10% of earnings and removed the patent title pending from ANTONIO MAUCHI (sp?) within the halls of the Library of Congress in Washington DC. If something as important as the telephone can be misappropriated as truth and the person responsible for the Intellectual Property is stripped of ownership within the halls of the Library of Congress, then what happens to all other Intellectual Properties (IP) and patent pending World wide? Good Question?
    WIPO World Intellectual Property Organization had a meeting the first week of Feb. 08 where 500 delegates from around the Globe met to discuss the very topic of IP and its proper protection,development, and distribution. Only problem is, a Country like Canada sits as one of the top 5 Countries of the World for IP piracy. Added to this we only represent 4% of the Music buying Public. If you break up all the genres of Music into categories of Jazz, Country, Rock etc…….. how much revenues are actually available to the owner of the IP after illegal sharing and distribution occurs on Global scales? Further, our enforcement agencies have no ability in our own country, why then create laws for sandwhich eaters that attend delegate meetings in DUBAI, at the tax payers expense. McGuinty released a copyright protection law after apologizing to the Aboriginal people of Canada stating, “if the artist or the artist representative or distributors believe they have been infringed upon, the artist and its representative have the responsibility and the right to go after the infringer! Our question? If you order a pizza from Gino and eat the Pizza without paying Gino, is it Ginos’ responsibility to go after the infringer? Of course not! That is what law and law enforcement is about. As artists our product has been devalued by society and justification for theft is being supported by the Government. Many fingers have been pointed at the Aboriginal Initiatives for acting as “law less”, when infact and in truth, it was the powers that be acting on ignorance and attitudes inherited by attitudes and perceptions by our forefathers. These attitudes transcended from our professionals of society and have been allowed and justified by the children of societies elite. These same children who disrespect our IP will pay $200.00 for a specific tag on the back of a pair of boots or $5000.00 for a specific amp / speaker / wiring package for the sports car of choice. Our society has infact taught its own inheritors to “take when no one is looking” and to devalue the out come of hundreds of hours of creativity. The same society will pay $100 000.00 for a painting with 3 strips of colour for the house of parliament? Now I ask! All of the public that enjoy “art at will” how they would feel if they were not paid for their vocation of choice. Teachers, OLG employees, Hospital employees, Lawyers, cooks, etc…………………………….100’s of hours of work taken from you? You are not paid at all? You still have bills? Children? Vehicles? how do you survive when society is “AT LARGE”. The USA is now making mothers and fathers responsible for IP theft. One mother was charged $260 000.00 for copyright infringement and many others have followed. If a parent purchases an air rifle and the child uses the gift as a weapon, society holds the parent responsible for mis use. If a child takes the keys to a vehicle without permission, and the child kills or hurts another person as a result, the parent is held responsible by society.
    B.Spears is in every story! isn’t she!
    I wrote Slave 4 You in 1999 and have SOCAN registry predating B. Spears liner notes claim of ownership as “previously unreleased original”. Please go to B. Spears / Dean Hajas / Matt Haywood / Bruce Scavuzzo / HHO Publishing / Wade Leak / SONY / BMG to get the story on how an artist of corporate nature has stolen from the very sorce that provides the parts for the public to grease. Somehow the product has been misappropriated and so has the grease!
    You be responsible! You make a choice! You be informed!
