    If I didn't expect anything today, that would have been it (thank god I'm ready for anything :p ) Oh well, atleast he sounds happy about it, and quite frankly, the world needs more medical personel.
  3. Ergh, he would be about the last person I'd want to see if I was that injured.

    :rollno: :eyebrow:
  4. at least he isn't performing anymore!!!!
  5. It's a pity... The world needs more vocalists in gold lame suits.

    Hey, at least he is working!

    I actually liked his show.

    Hopefully he will eventually get back on his feet. He just needs to remember his age when choosing his outfits. ;)

    MAN! How bad must HE be hurting for money? I've been a paramedic a long time and we generally envy the paychecks of people who flip burgers.

    This is REALLY not a field you get into if you want to make a decent living. I have a hard time picturing a former rock star living on what a paramedic can make.

    Fortunately I'm married to a Social Worker, so I can rely on her big paychecks to make up the difference.(Where is the 'rolling-my-eyes-so-hard-that-they-might-fall-out-of-my-head' smiley?) My wife has had her Master Degree since 1979 and has only broken $35,000/year twice.

    Again, how bad was Dave hurting for money?

    Oh and I have to pass along Conan O'Briens joke about Roth already being replaced at his new ambulance job...by Sammy Hagar. :p

    This story has been going around for several months now. From what I've read it has nothing to do with money, and I applaud him for doing it.

    This kinda sucks... Roth-VH was the first concert I ever attended as a kid... In fact, w/ Roth as the front man, is the ONLY way I've ever seen VH. To this day, the 1984 tour was one of the top 5 shows I've ever seen.

    Sure, he's more obnoxious than me, & prima donna doesn't even cover it... But, damn... Just kinda pisses me off, because him falling to THIS, is sooooooooo.... pathetic.

    Anymore, he acts like a hard-up bar wench...

    Man could they have possibly picked worse pictures of Roth for that article?!

    Good for him!
  19. I think former 70's teen idol Bobby Sherman is a paramedic as well.
  20. I don´t understand you guys. Every day we read about stars and celebrities who died of OD, stabbed their wives or got caught buying child po***graphy. And you say DLR has fallen?!

    Nothing wrong with honest work. He gets my respect. Go Dave!
