This awesome double-sided concert tee is for David Lee Roth, from his 1986 tour which promoted his album Eat 'Em and Smile. This was the singers' debut solo album after leaving the band Van Halen. The album was a critical and commercial success and praised for being much rougher sounding than Van Halen's new album 5150, which featured Roth's replacement Sammy Hagar. The album managed to peak at the number four position on the Billboard 200 and it included songs like "Yankee Rose", "Shyboy", "Tobacco Road", and covers of classic lounge songs "I'm Easy" and "That's Life".
Roth first began performing in the early 70s when he was only in his late teens. It was during this time that he met Alex and Eddie Van Halen and eventually joined their band Mammoth, which would later evolve into Van Halen. Roth later left the band due to creative differences. While Van Halen were looking to explore more synth heavy new wave sounds, Roth was more interested in pursuing a more guitar laden hard rock style. He compiled a supergroup consisting of Steve Vai, Billy Sheehan, and Gregg Bissonette to back him and wound up releasing a total of six solo albums over the years.
