I love stories, especially ones that share insight into a time or place in history that many people didn’t have access to. I also love music. The combination of these two passions may explain why I have read the biographies of almost every popular musician who has published one (Note: I highly recommend Slash’s.) It also explains why I think story time with Mr. Roth is so “awesome”.
In this video published to Van Halen’s vimeo page, David Lee Roth explains why they wrote a “No Brown M&Ms” clause into Van Halen’s contracts. I think the reason is pretty brilliant, and no it’s not because he’s allergic to food coloring or gets off on being a rock diva.
