DAVID LEE ROTH | EAT 'EM AND SMILE (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/LIMITED EDITION/GATEFOLD COVER)
After his first successful run with the mighty Van Halen in 1984, the legendary David Lee Roth embarked on an amazing solo career which yielded him enough gold and platinum records that King Midas would be envious. Eat ’Em And Smile was a huge success for Roth in 1986, yielding a chart topping rock album as well as ranking up several Top 40 singles with heavy rockers like Goin’ Crazy and Yankee Rose. Armed with an incredible batch of tunes and his super power trio of legendary shredders Steve Vai (guitars), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Gregg Bissonette (drums), Eat ’Em And Smile went on to become one of this artist’s most enduring and critically acclaimed works.
