    Question Did this David Lee Roth video actually exist??

    Does anyone remember a video that was out around 1985 or so that had David Lee Roth conducting an orchestra?

    I seem to recall also that David Lee was doing some silly things in the video, like maybe falling over or something

    The only thing I can remember is that it was out around the same time as the "Amadeus" movie and maybe there was some kind of tie-in there.

    The video may have been played on MTV but I remember it more from the "ABC Rocks" video show that used to be on ABC Friday nights.

    That's all I can remember. I've asked everyone I know and they think I'm either crazy or have a warped imagination.

    Any info would be appreciated such as the name of the song, actual artist, and why David Lee Roth (of all people) was conducting.

    Thanks for any help!

    Welcome, Rich! I'm going to move this topic over to the "Visual Audio" section. It will certainly get more exposure over there. You can click on the red link at the top left to find this thread...

    I think the video you're talking about is his rendition of "Just a Gigolo."

    Thanks for the welcome Sal. I'm a long time reader, first time poster.

    us007ed, I am positive that the video I'm thinking of is NOT "Just A Gigolo." In fact I highly doubt this is a David Lee Roth song I'm thinking of. He was just in the video being the symphany conductor. The song I believe was a classical piece.

    I couldn't been dreaming this... or could I??

    Hey Rich,

    I can help you out here! I discussed this video in my 1997 book, 1984: The Ultimate Van Halen Trivia Book:

    http://www.trafford.com/robots/97-0007.html

    Question #1924: What role does Dave play in the video for "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" from the Amadeus soundtrack?

    A: He portrays an orchestra conductor in full evening dress

    Hope this helps!

    All the best,

    LucasA

    Re: Did this David Lee Roth video actually exist??

    I LOVED THIS VIDEO!!! It starts out with Dave as a conductor with some crazy tuxedo on. He taps the podium and says, "Ok everyone, this suit's gotta be in by six so lets try and get this right!" Then it plays a song from Amadeus and mixes movie scenes with rock video clips. PLEASE if you find this video let me know. I HAVE BEEN looking for it forever!!!!!

    Thanks

    Mike
