David Lee Roth is one of rock’s greatest frontman and, overall, one of music’s most unique characters.

When he’s on stage, he’s the ultimate showman. When he’s off stage and talking with the press, he walks a line between brilliant and insane. One minute, he takes off on a stream of consciousness that convinces you he’s not all there. Then he’ll throw out a surprising one-liner that’ll make you think, “Holy s—…Diamond Dave’s has been smarter than all of us this whole time.”

In honor of years of zaniness, let’s wish a happy birthday to the one, the only David Lee Roth by looking back at these ten quotes attributed to him.
