Channeling David Lee Roth

Please join me and return to a lost golden age of glam rock through this live clip of the Atomic Punks, a Van Halen cover band: The lead singer's imitation of DLR, one of my heroes, is uncanny. I particularly admire his use of the red belt/panties rig over the snakeskin tights---the combination creates a trunked, superhero effect that works well for him when employed in conjunction with the rakish white scarf. But, as always, attitude is key: watch this consummate showman take complete control of the crowd at the 2:47 mark.

Few heterosexual men in the world could pull this off.
