In 1993, seven years after leaving Van Halen, David Lee Roth was busted in New York City for buying a small quantity of marijuana. Shortly thereafter, Roth was asked by Howard Stern, "So, Dave, you lookin' for publicity?" "Howard, this is a $35-dollar pot pust," Roth replied. "If I was looking for publicity, I would have pooped on the sidewalk."
["We're playing every casino, ballroom and whorehouse that will have us," Roth remarked while touring ten years later. "And the band is furious -- they'd plug their amps into livestock if I'd let 'em."]
