David Lee Roth Lives in Pasadena

For FishbowlLA, this was easily the most surprising take-away from Geoff Boucher‘s excellent weekend profile of the returning Van Halen frontman. That the colorful rock’n'roll and radio survivor currently resides in the vicinity of flower petal floats, stately Craftsman homes and the state’s oldest highway.

Boucher in fact for this story paid a visit to David Lee Roth not long after this year’s Rose Parade:

Earlier this month, on a crisp, sunny morning in Pasadena, Roth, now 57, welcomed a visitor to his 20-room, Italianate mansion to talk about Van Halen past, present and future.

There are also a half-dozen shots (like the one pictured) taken by Robert Gauthier of Roth goofing on his Pasadena front porch. New album comes out February 7.
