David Lee Roth at Iowa vs Iowa St. Football Game in 1986 – VIDEO

Super 70s Sports:

If you thought Iowa was losing at home with David Lee Roth in the goddamn house, you were sadly fucking mistaken.

On that day (Sept. 13, 1986), Roth — by then riding the wave of a burgeoning solo career after exiting Van Halen in 1985 — strode onto the Kinnick Stadium turf at halftime and performed a jubilant version of his hit, ‘Yankee Rose,’ with the Iowa State marching band. ‘Diamond Dave’ was holding court that weekend around Iowa, playing shows at both Hilton Coliseum in Ames and Five Seasons Center in Cedar Rapids.
