If you're old enough to remember the many joys of the Reagan era, and still young enough at heart to enjoy its attendant ironies and contradictions, read on! For this is a tale of a giant of that era and what he's doing with himself these days.
I'm willing to bet that when contemplating the legendary front man's contributions to the pantheon of human culture, the following sequence of words does not occur to your thought - David Lee Roth: Japanese crime film auteur.
And yet... here we are.
It turns out Diamond Dave has been in Tokyo for the past year or so (just living, lovin') and he's starting to look like a cross between Kinji Fukasaku and Quentin Tarantino.
Details on the short film are hard to come by, but apparently Dave actually wrote the script himself and there may or may not be plans to make a feature length film.
So I suppose the question now is this: David Lee Roth - gigolo, samurai, or both at once?
