DIAMOND DAVE MAKES STAYING AN EXTRA DAY WORTH IT
STURGIS RALLY'S MOST FAMOUS MUSIC FESTIVAL TO CLOSE WITH A JUMP "Diamond" David Lee Roth, rock 'n' roll frontman. Kung Fu sage. living, breathing action figure, will close the 25th Annual Party at the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground, during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Saturday, Aug. 12.

ROTH WILL BRING HARD-DRIVING ROCK TO STURGIS MOTORCYCLE RALLY
By the time he hit his mid-20s, Dave was a world-class frontman with platinum albums under his black belt from his work with his high school buddies, Van Halen. With an arsenal of massive hits ("Jump,"
"Panama," "Hot For Teacher," "Runnin' With The Devil," "Dance The Night Away," and many more), Van Halen took over the world and knocked Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith out of the top-band-in-the-world spot by the late-'70s.
His subsequent solo career yielded a truckload of hits, including "Yankee Rose," "Goin' Crazy," "Just a Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody," "California Girls," "A Little Ain't Enough."
LEAD-WITH-YOUR-FACE ICON TO GET CRAZY FROM THE STURGIS RALLY HEAT
His music has become a staple of FM radio, TV commercials, movie soundtracks and sporting events everywhere. As an ambassador for hedonists everywhere who has rocked arena around the world, Roth is still rockin' hard, and sidestepping into other arenas, and carrying on his "belligerently enthusiastic, lead-with-you're-face approach."
The self-proclaimed Toastmaster of the Immoral Majority, even authored a best-selling autobiography, 1997's Crazy From the Heat?
Roth has been for years, the most recognizeable quarterback for legendary bad boy rock band Van Halen. He is and extremely successful solo artist, a music video pioneer, best selling author, and world traveler. Like so many of his Sturgis Rally Music fans, "Diamond" David Lee Roth has led the life that most ordinary folks only dream of and has gone places most people will never go, even in their wildest dreams. "I've been places with my face you wouldn't go to with a pistol," says Roth.
WHERE ELSE BUT THE STURGIS RALLY'S CHIP?
After six top-selling, multi-platinum albums with the Van Halen brothers, an eight-album-strong solo career, and a budding film and television career that includes a guest spot on HBO’s Sopranos, and enough lavish world tours to make even Donald Trump green with envy, where does a genuine Rock God go next?
