Van Halen videos were always good. Mostly the stadium style rock star vibe with big lights and pyro.
…and then there was Diamond Dave when he did his solo record.. it was MAGIC.
From his creepy sexual innuendos, use of bodybuilders and midgets, fisheye camera angles with absurd characters, and true DLR showmanship; it was hard to deny. David Lee Roth solo was a good thing for the world, for rock-n-roll, and for other bands years later wanting to take a lighter approach in their video making.
