My Stalker…

DLR / Tech / / 150 Comments

Stalker blog. Part 1.

Help! I have a stalker. A very real one.
75 stalker phone calls in the last 4 months.
All of them at 5:30-6:00 in the morning.
All 917 and 301 area codes.
Every now and then at 2 in the afternoon.
Never on the weekend.
The phone calls show up on my old phone but they don’t show up on the phone bill.

Somebody knows a little bit about tech. They even know how to remove the number out of my phone when they want to. This is not the first time I’ve bought the land and gotten some of the unhappy Indians. There is a list of unhappy ex-colleagues, as there always is in show biz, but this stalker is particularly obsessed. They’re no longer prank calls. Having been through the process with the private detectives, lawyers, FBI and ex-FBI, I can speak with some authority. These stalker calls come under the heading of “Domestic Terrorism.” This is all news to me so let me share it with you. I grew up thinking prank calls were the equivalent to toilet papering the old Coach’s house once a season. Just this season alone, I’ve had my house toilet papered four dozen times. 

As it was explained to me by the professionals, these calls are designed to make you terrified, nervous, afraid, upset and ruin your day which is exactly what happened to me during my first stalker experience in 1977. I went through the phases of anger, fear, denial, etc. Van Halen was instantly successful. We sold 10 million records in weeks. With that success comes trolls and more. I’ve always supported trolling on the internet. You know that. It’s one of my favorite parts. If I was more digitally literate, I would be a critic as well. Having been through the stalker experience one time curiously made the second time even worse. I was more afraid and more intimidated the second time around. It really threw me off in the way where you stop eating or you eat too much and you sleep all the time. I’ve also experienced stalker calls from groups of people. There was a biker group in Florida while we were recording out of Gloria Estefan’s studio (highly recommend it). They got up to 40 calls and started physically following me around. Somebody tried to kidnap my father at gunpoint too. That’s an extreme version of bad news looking to ruin your day. Perhaps these scenarios are a bit more familiar to me than others.

Could you imagine someone sneaking into your apartment and slapping your wife awake from a dead sleep and then running away into the dark? She’s going to have a physical, violent reaction. Her heart rate will skyrocket, her face is going to turn red, she will be sweating, crying and accusing– all justifiably. You think that was dramatic? Wait until that same person sneaks into your home and slaps your little girl awake. I don’t care if she’s days old much less months old. All that it’s going to take is four of those calls and she is going to fear the morning much less the phone. “Mommy, Mommy why is that call happening?” She’s going to stop eating, start oversleeping and begin disassociating with people– that’s the entire purpose and why this is a violent felony and assault. If I have a heart attack because of that phone call, it’s assault and battery plus felony manslaughter. If my wife wakes up screaming and goes running down the dark hall to take care of the children and accidentally falls down the stairs– it’s felony assault and battery with intent. We all know the word “mayhem” from comic books, “The Masters of Mayhem.” Intent to mayhem means somebody wants you to be physically hurt. Getting somebody’s heart rate up and distracting them to the point where they crash their car– that’s violent assault and battery with intent to commit mayhem. Just one call. I’m up to 75 of them in one season.

Somebody out there knows their tech. None of the phone numbers show up on my phone bill. Whoever is doing this knows that it’s a felony and he’s hiding. It may be a woman but i’ll characterize it for the sake of the article as a “he.” I haven’t pursued it beyond all the normal channels. What can I do? But I certainly invite anyone who speaks tech to weigh in here because it’s pretty rare that just one person does this much obsessive conduct and nobody else knows about it. Whoever is doing this works somewhere, they eat lunch somewhere, they sleep somewhere and probably with someone. You better be careful. I’m a stranger and look what they did to me. You’re family, you’re familiar. He’ll turn on you with the exact same teeth and the exact same rationalizations they may have used to come after me. 9 times out of 10 I’m told you get a shot of tequila or espresso in the belly of whoever is dialing that phone they’ll tell you, “I don’t know. I’ve always hated the guy” or “I don’t know he went somewhere I wanted to visit and I didn’t go so I thought I’d fuck him up.” Usually that’s all this is but there’s somebody out there who knows who’s doing this. Give me a call…

    DLR I’m in the computer/mobile forensics business. Message me if you would like.

    • Jeannie  —  September 29, 2016 at 10:02 pm

      Wish I could help, but I can barely use my phone. Good luck, I hope you find someone to help you. I can’t even imagine how it would be to have something like that happen.

    • Nostaljack  —  September 29, 2016 at 10:32 pm

      I hope he will. This is gonna need someone with some skills.

      • Erik Moore  —  September 30, 2016 at 8:37 am

        Sounds like they start work at 5:30 East Coast and get off around 2:00, and don’t have access to their company phone on the weekends. Definitely some chicken-shit working a bad job, but I doubt they’re a threat. One things for sure, you have a lot of fans in senior positions at tech companies. I think it was Dateline, where they tracked down a guy working out of some shit hole In India, so you can track them down and have them stomped.

      Sometimes in life giving up is not the best option, some of us couldn’t even take NO for an answer,I am one of such,i and my husband has be broke up for more than 4 month now and i love him so much to the extend that i could not do any thing again, i was confused and depress due to the love i had for him.i did everything i could do to have him come back to me but all went in vain. so i decided to contact a spell caster, i did not believe in spell casting i just want to try it may be it would work out for me. i contacted Dr Zaba for help, he told me that he have to cast a love spell on him, i told him to start it. after 3 days my husband called me and started to apologize for leaving me and also he told me that he still love me. i was very happy and i thank Dr Zaba for helping me get back my ex husband back to my highly unbelievable it just too real to be real all you ladies who Still care about your lover i strongly advice you to contact Dr Zaba at the following email address and get all your problem solve..No problem is too big for him to solve..Contact him direct at ([email protected]) call his cell phone

        Good grief! I can’t believe someone is using your FB paid to advertise for spellcasters. LOL

        • Holly Clark  —  September 1, 2018 at 11:41 pm

          Mike I have one too. Also deletes his infof.How do they do this?? The phones I am told are satellite and the IP addresses change randomly… How?? I did have to wonder if we might have come in contact with same person. Mine uses ‘Dave from Florida’ ..ironic? I do know someone from years back involved with Gloria Esteban. That is interesting to say the least. I need to check my dates of when this began.

    • Holly Clark  —  September 1, 2018 at 11:39 pm

Can someone please help me I just escaped a domestic violence relationship and he is blocked but sending all kinds of nasty spam and setting up sex profiles, so I want to delete my gmail or get a new one can someone please help, I’m a nervous wreck, Thank you! Boston Survivor 🙏🏻

  2. woozie  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:25 pm

    Well, it’s not me (area code 608) – but I do admit really wanting to sneak backstage and hang out with you when you were on tour in my city. I was only 13, so it didn’t really work out. ; )

    • Dena C  —  September 27, 2018 at 3:42 pm

      What on you on? Seriously? You are not even on this planet? You and DLR possibly have the same stalker😂😂😂 please stop!

    Hi David,it’s not a uk number I’m sorry your so stressed about a horrid little prick I had experienced a stalker some years back called ex hubby so my heart goes out to you I don’t know why people are mean and stalk you good luck Kirsty xx

  5. Bill Perna  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    I am a phone guy and may be able to help. I have access to data that can be useful. Feel free to email me.

    • Punky  —  December 4, 2017 at 1:31 pm

      You can’t access data indiscriminately… That’d be information that is protected.

    • Holly Clark  —  September 1, 2018 at 11:44 pm

      Bill..can’t people use apps and change phone numbers? I get crazy cell calls from web dealers tgzt say its my neighbors..If they use those web dealers how can you track it? Asking because I too have a stalker???

  6. Terry  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    DearDave. There has got to be someone who will help you to find this person and figure out a way to eliminate this stuff from happening I from the tech end. I would help if I could – but really limited on computer skills. I got to see the mighty VH four tours in a row in Seattle. from VH 2 till Diver Down. Had the excellent Bio you put out awhile back and recently passed it on to a friend at work. Thank you for bringing the best of timely tunes for those with a textured taste. (The Steve Slaten show on KISW) Be well and blessed Terry

  7. Tammy  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:46 pm

    Sorry this is happening! Terrible to hear…I’m praying for peace and this evil one will be caught, arrested and punished!
    I’m praying!

  8. 5150CENT  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    BeginnIng of the year Someone stole a leather satchel out of my car and made fake checks/credit cards from the info they found inside. A couple months ago someone hacked my uber acct and was clocking fake uber rides in Canada. Even creepier, I could see them driving around live via the app.

  9. Luke Hanagan  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    This sounds horrible Dave. We don’t need anything impacting your creativity and the resulting contributions we consume. From a tech standpoint not sure what I can offer but can start digging!

  10. Myles  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    Dave it’s Sammy calling you! Seems he wants to buy your talent since his died on the vine. Big fan from the 201 baby. Edgewater NJ home to the best in Asian persuasion !

  11. Stormy Ray Williams Greenwell  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    I know what it’s like to be stalked for real by EX-BOYFRIEND’S and my Ex-husband over the phone , Facebook , Twitter. Everytime they get a new cell phone number or access to someone else’s phone , I get calls and text . They have gone as far as signing me up for travel brochures and baby newsletters and products , which I have no need for it’s just filling up my mailbox . I somehow get random phone calls from 000-000-000 phone calls and from unknown callers all the time and I believe that’s a direct result of all this harassment . I’m on the Do Not Call registry in my state and I block phone numbers everyday . Along with all of that I have at least 3 of the people who are stalking me come by my house and pull into my driveway and park their cars in my driveway and rev up their engine and just sit there. I called the police several times and there is nothing they can do from what I was told No crime has been committed. I am not a famous person nor do I believe I deserve to be stalked and hounded this has been going on for years and as soon as I think it’s over it starts right up again

    • [email protected]  —  September 1, 2018 at 11:48 pm

      Stormy There should be new stalking laws if they know who it is..also restraining orders..then you can do something. ..being stalked certainly is life changing. .

  12. Frank  —  September 29, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Someone who live in Maryland and works in NYC or vise versa

  13. Jennifer  —  September 29, 2016 at 1:00 pm

    Wish there was something I could do to help. I cannot begin to understand what this would do to a person. Once had a guy I didn’t know I.M. me and call me darling…..freaked me the fuck out. I am trying to imagine multiplying that feeling x1000 or more. Can’t fathom it. Best wishes to you Dave. We are here for you❤

    • jst4horses  —  October 8, 2016 at 11:28 pm

      because we use an open line and open email for our veterans, first responders and high risk youth we too get some unwanted IM, emails and calls. They usually say they are active duty, or from foreign countries and need us to help them with money……..but some are a bit scary and persistent………I had forgotten all about them until jennifer said IM.

  14. Fletch  —  September 29, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    DAVE….it could be one of those go phones or a throw away phone you can buy at Walmart or where ever. Those numbers won’t show up on your phone bill…prepaid phone. Check it

  15. Paul  —  September 29, 2016 at 1:21 pm

    Hi Diamond Dave greetings from the emerald isle. Sorry you are having this negative experience in your life just remember what an inspiration you have been and continue to be to millions of dedicated fans around the globe and realise this saddo will have nothing else going on in their lives I’m sure you will put this behind you soon <3

  16. Dave  —  September 29, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    Dave, maybe it’s Sammy, it appears he has some pent up anger issues. He just cut all his hair off to so maybe that’s got him trying to be like you. Check it out may not be so far fetched.

  17. Priscilla  —  September 29, 2016 at 1:41 pm

    That would totally freak me out. Praying for you Dave. May God bless and protect you.

  18. Pantokraterix  —  September 29, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    If they’re calling your cell phone and you’re not answering and they’re not leaving a voicemail, it won’t appear on your bill because it’s not an actual connection. If they’re spoofing someone else’s number (and it’s not hard to do) then that won’t help anyhow. In Canada, the police have a direct line to cell providers’ security teams to try to track numbers. I’d start there.

  19. Tom Hatheway  —  September 29, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    Hi Dave,

    A previous posting kind of mentioned what I’m going to say. Those area codes you listed look odd; as if it’s a temporary prepaid phone from Walmart or Target. I live up in the Bay Area and know all the original area codes from here since the 70s ;and 80s. Same for most of California, they are mostly recognizable. I get calls from odd area codes now and never pick up.

    I hope someone on this list can help you further and you can obtain complete and full resolution.

    Always enjoy your work and shows.


  20. Paul  —  September 29, 2016 at 2:26 pm

    I am wondering if perhaps it is a Skype number.

  21. Jeff McHarg  —  September 29, 2016 at 2:43 pm

    DLR! It’s me McHarg. Sorry to hear. Would be great to hear from you. Drop me a line.

    • Nostaljack  —  September 29, 2016 at 10:28 pm

      Yeah, there’s an idea. It’d be easy to grab any area code you wish. Sadly, people can also hide their IP addresses so if he/she wants to remain hidden, that’s what’ll happen.

  22. Stephanie  —  September 29, 2016 at 2:57 pm

    Sorry Dave :/ 🙁 , yes stalking is terribly wrong ! I hope they / you will find the person :/ 🙁 !!!!!!!

  23. Mary  —  September 29, 2016 at 2:57 pm

    Dear Dave,
    I do not like hearing about this. How upsetting for you. My daughter is in intelligence in the Army. She is well trained at catching bad guys. I will ask her about this. I will pray they leave you alone. ✌?️???

  24. Captain Karma  —  September 29, 2016 at 3:07 pm

    Probably some loser who’s got nothing better to do with their time than harass washed up and washed out 80s icon who doesn’t currently hold a candle to the talent he once had. Grow a set Dave…it was probably one of the thousands of people you bowled over with your big asked ego. Paybacks a bitch huh?

    • Cap'n K  —  September 29, 2016 at 3:54 pm

      You, my friend, are a butt-hurt jealous loser.

    • Fullbug  —  September 29, 2016 at 4:28 pm

      Yeah, its likely someone like you, asshole…..

    • mags  —  September 29, 2016 at 6:45 pm

      You are Not A Nice Person. Why are you so mean? You need a hug but nobody wants to hug a meanie.

    • Michele  —  September 29, 2016 at 6:58 pm

      Captain Karma…your girlfriend must have been offered a backstage pass and liked DLR better than you. Not hard to imagine. Deal with your bitterness and get a life…really.

    • Nostaljack  —  September 29, 2016 at 10:30 pm

      This is a real issue. I know you’re trying to be cute but stalking can end in all the wrong ways. You may not like him but surely you don’t wish…you know where this is going. He needs help and he’s even using his website to get some. This is truly nothing to play with. Have a heart and leave the nonsense out of this.

    • Rachel  —  March 24, 2017 at 7:23 pm

      Honestly? Small minded moron with a small weenie had to say something, right?
      You don’t hold a candle to this man. He was an icon? He is an icon…your jealousy is showing!

  25. Pattie Ong  —  September 29, 2016 at 3:37 pm

    Jeez Dave, let us know how this turns out.

  26. Kevin  —  September 29, 2016 at 3:45 pm

    Block their number!

    • Nostaljack  —  September 29, 2016 at 10:31 pm

      The stalker will just use another. Getting other phone numbers isn’t hard to do at all.

  27. Robin Bailey  —  September 29, 2016 at 3:49 pm

    I’m very sorry to hear that Dave. They really need to get a life. On a better note, I hope that some sort of new music comes out soon with you singing it. Your albums and tours really make my year, and I was thrilled to still be enjoying Van Halen with the only singer that matters in 2015.

  28. Ray  —  September 29, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    DLR- Sorry to hear this is happening to you. Perhaps a simple fix or band-aid could be setting your phone to direct all unknown calls directly to voicemail? Many mobile phones have options in the contact list to change the result of an incoming call including assigning a different ringtone or sending calls straight to voicemail. Set the “unknown ” callers (not friends in contact list) to silent ring if any at all. Hope this helps. PS..we need YOU to run for Political office..Rock on!

  29. Steve  —  September 29, 2016 at 4:08 pm

    Dave, careful. I’m sure it goes without saying. Your stalker could be right here offering help. Make sure you check them out before accepting their services.

  30. cl  —  September 29, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    Hi Dave…I feel your pain, I’ve been stalked too. It sucks like a Hoover. But here’s this…907 is generally assigned to Brooklyn, New York. 301 is Baltimore, MD. East coast, probably hacked your phone, sold it a few phishing operations. If you answer they can do more damage than if you just ignore the calls. I’ve got a little of this going on now. I just let the people that matter to me know that I keep my ringer off and if they want to talk to me they better leave a message. Good luck in this. It all just makes me shake my head and mutter “what the hell is wrong with people?”

  31. Tim Aebi  —  September 29, 2016 at 5:21 pm

    Fuck’em! You’re David Lee Roth. They can eat shite. They can’t touch you.

    • Tim Aebi  —  September 29, 2016 at 5:33 pm

      Just a reminder – stand true – they can’t touch you.

  33. Michael Pesole  —  September 29, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    Omg. I’m sorry for your troubles. There has to be some sort of professional to be able to help you out. Lots of fuckwits out there.

  34. Robi  —  September 29, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    It’s most likely someone’s ex looking for a new and improved ex…

    Seriously, I’d suspect Hagar and the Bass Player™ are behind these shenanigans.

  35. Greg  —  September 29, 2016 at 6:26 pm

    Thanks for sharing Dave. What’s your daughter’s name?

    Just kidding, I get the analogy. What would be really cool is if the calls suddenly stopped after this was posted. Then you could narrow it down to the 40 people that read it. Hey now. I kid because I love.

    I do hope it stops, though Part 2 would be a very boring post if it does.

  36. Bruce  —  September 29, 2016 at 6:38 pm

    You can’t just block the number?

  37. Fat Sammy  —  September 29, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    I admit it. Its me. I want you to stop making great music with Eddie and Al so they will take my fat ass back and tour with me. 😉

  38. Jeffrey Weber  —  September 29, 2016 at 7:32 pm

    And someone said fair warning..
    Gonna hunt that poor boy down…

  39. Taylor  —  September 29, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    I think this must be some sort of spam bot. I was thinking about this post and remembered I was called by a 917 (New York) area code at 3:19pm a few days ago. I live in the Midwest so getting a call from one of the coasts is definitely not normal. I was never called to the extent you are, but they might have your name and that’s why you are getting so many calls. I’m guessing if it is a spam bot it’s probably a phishing scheme of some sort. If it isn’t phishing then it’s probably political garbage.

  40. Elaine Kay  —  September 29, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    Man, I know it’s a pain… but couldn’t you just change your cell phone number??

    • Tom Hatheway  —  September 29, 2016 at 9:18 pm


      If he changed his number it would just get found out again eventually. All of his friends, cohorts, management, coworkers and musicians will have the new number.


      • Elaine Kay  —  September 30, 2016 at 4:56 am

        True enough. I had to change mine three times to get rid of someone’s calls, but it did, eventually.

  41. DAVE  —  September 29, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    Get the “IMAZING ” APP!!! Will print out Entire call History (numbers,Dates,Time,Incoming-outgoing, since Phone was activated. Don’t need any more proof than that!!!

    • Dave  —  September 29, 2016 at 9:27 pm

      Email me for the Info I’m in NYC and It only takes 1/2 hour to complete

    • Mike  —  September 30, 2016 at 3:30 am

      Any phone company can give him that info. He doesn’t need any app.. my God . I am sure he is dealing with one of the big 3 for phone service this really sounds so silly.
      Change the number . Don’t give it to those you just met in a bar .

  42. Nostaljack  —  September 29, 2016 at 10:37 pm

    The problem here, as has been stated, is that anyone extending help in the form of “message me if you like” or “contact me for help” could very well be the stalker in question. He/she is likely LOVING this attention and his/her ego is surely being fed big time by all of this. I have little doubt that he/she is reading each and every one of these messages and savoring each one. The best thing to do would have been to handle this as privately as possible without bringing this kind of attention to him/her. Of course, what’s done is now done. Perhaps remove this from the site and continue tracking him/her down privately?

    • SP  —  September 30, 2016 at 6:48 am

      Exactly – all they want is attention…hopefully his! An overgrown child- Good post

  43. nick capitano  —  September 30, 2016 at 12:50 am

    hi David, it sounds like an inside job. How could someone get your number and know that it’s your number. Someone who had your number was irresponsible in letting it out. Hope it ends soon and the person is brought to justice.

    On a lighter note I turned 50 last May and just want to thank you for all the cool music I and so many millions of others got to grow up with. Man Van Halen was a way of life back in the 80’s! I miss those days. Hope to see you on the next VH tour. BTW all your solo stuff is bad ass too!

  44. Jaimie  —  September 30, 2016 at 1:42 am

    The TP’ing of the house sounds childish, probably unrelated, plus risky on their part. Security cameras? You should! At first I thought this could be hacker but of course, those guys don’t walk to talk to “anyone”, unless you’re another hacker! lol Chances are they don’t know you and you don’t know them, just a freak.

    Time to “Turn you from hunted into hunter”!!! : )

    • Elaine Kay  —  October 1, 2016 at 7:07 pm

      Metaphor, dude, metaphor…

  45. Daniel  —  September 30, 2016 at 2:48 am

    Being stalked is a dreadful nightmare. Hope you’re able to find out whoever is putting you through this hell. Especially with the resources and technology you have, working in your favor.
    Best wishes.

  46. Mike  —  September 30, 2016 at 3:27 am

    Hi Dave,
    Seriously. … you can do the obvious. ..
    1.Change the number .
    2. You can block the nunber.
    3. Phone company can block the nunber.
    4. Phone company can trace the number.
    5. Cops and Feds can triangulate the number.
    6. Start stalking back.
    ( leave their number on bathroom walls , make fake Craigslist ads, sign them up for aLloyd kinds of things , post the number here and we can all give your stalker a few million calls )
    Just be creative. ..

      OOH. I like the idea of posting the stalker’s number online so that THEY get what it feels like. 🙂 Jacka$$ needs to reap what he sows!

        hi – aren’t you are facebook and deleted several accounts stating you were married to a David Roth and talked about tours, etc ? Others have written so much about you pretending to be with Roth. Changed your name several times. google it and your other names. I started looking online after all of the fake FB posts.

    • Stephanie Collison  —  September 30, 2016 at 9:39 pm

      Yes change that number. Who cares who it is do not satisfy them through publishing them. Change that number!!!

  47. Joe  —  September 30, 2016 at 4:26 am

    I haven’t seen anyone suggest changing YOUR number, to a private, unlisted one. I have always wished I could just call up someone famous, but them numbers are not so easy to get. I did call troy lucketta and then studied with him, I also called and reached alex van halen once but it was a business call regarding a national drumming event. Also it probably was not suggested because it seems such a simple solution and that it was probably assumed you already tried that, but how do they, (he), keep getting your new number. Seems that would make it easier to catch them too. The worst part about doing that is going through all of the people that you actually want to call you to give them the new number, which i know is a pain. Other than that there has to be some sort of tracking you can catch them with. what happens when you answer? what do they say? you got me curious. Just thought the obvious thing might have been overlooked because of not wanting to have to update your number to all your contacts, hope you find a solution. And i think the idiots who think its sammy really have no clue why sammy wouldn’t take a minute to even think of doing that. Too bad there isnt an idiot test to make sure stupid people cannot get online.

    Hi David, I know for personal experience the nightmare of being stalked. For many years some crazy or unhappy person phoned and ask for me -said my full name- and then nothing more, just silence. It was terrifying and then one day suddenly stopped. People here are giving you many possible alternatives, at that time I decided to not answer the phone and family and friends messaged me. Be safe and relaxed, this is the best antidote against the stalker.

      Right? I’m sure it’s a “fan.”

  51. S.P.  —  September 30, 2016 at 6:42 am

    It sincerely distresses me that you are so distressed as to make this issue public. I wish my tech advice were better than “call you Mom, she’ll make you feel better.” It sounds like the best of the best are working to rectify the situation, and I’m sorry for your trouble. You certainly did nothing to deserve it more than being one of the finest-lookin’ guys to ever grace our planet. You’re funny, too-
    Having experienced first hand how the anonymity of technology allows folks to bring their worst baggage, mental issues and general “mishegas” right to you, I sympathize. I’ve experienced both fear and tears. If it’s any comfort, 99% of us would, with information such as your #, respect your privacy (or at worst, call to sing to you on your birthday). Heck, if only I had your address, I’d leave a homemade challah on your doorstep every Friday, with a nice note (something tasteful, of course).
    I doubt it’s a disgruntled anyone – more likely the kid who always sought negative attention by acting out, just grown up and unmoored in life.
    Shana Tova – wishing you a happy, healthy, sweet, safe and productive New Year – I personally will be praying for an EEAS reunion.
    So, what flavor do you like?

    • Señorita  —  September 30, 2016 at 11:10 am

      I agree, Monica. Kind of like when a kid who ought to know better acts out but then when they see they don’t get a rise, they stop.

      I’m not sure how are beloved Dave is handling all this when it’s happening, but I hope you somehow can understand the childishness of his actions and not let it get to you.

      As an alternative, I recommend hiding out in the studio!!? just kidding..sorta. =\/H=

  54. Agnes James  —  September 30, 2016 at 9:26 am

    Please read my testimony, it can bring solution to the problems you are
    facing in life. I met this spell caster Dr Mojo online and read the
    testimonies of many persons witnessing how he has help them solve problems
    of any kind such as fibroid without surgery, Infertility, cure of diabetes,
    breast cancer, weak erection, regulation of menstruation and pains, stroke,
    HIV / AIDS, successful interview and work examination, political
    achievement, recovery of lost money, quick sales in business or commerce,
    choice of good marriage partner, power to bring your ex back, stopping your
    man or woman having affair outside your relationship or marriage, power to
    win pool, lottery, visa approval, reduction of sagging breast, gun
    protecting spiritual ring, promotion at work etc … I contacted him
    through his WhatsApp instant messenger with the phone number +27797427509.I
    was absolutely desperate to have my husband back. Life without my husband
    was a pain for me and my children. I wanted a drastic change and I thought
    that only magic can be the only solution because he was so cruel towards
    me. After discussing my problem with Dr Mojo, he gave me hope that my
    marriage shall be restored. He gave me confidence that he will make my
    husband to come home and he did It! It was a great miracle, He never asked
    for money before helping me, all he requested for was some few items i had
    to purchase, and i provided these items immediately, he performed the spell
    and my marriage was restored immediately. His help is invaluable! I do not
    know what I could have done without Dr Mojo, he does his job well, his
    powers are so real and effective, I think he is the best caster I can count
    on when it comes spells, although at first I never believed in magic until
    I had to try, I think there are many who are depressed, desperate and want
    this spell to return their happiness, so I have to use this medium to reach
    all those who are facing one problem or the other. Contact him immediately
    and I can guarantee that your problems are solved. You can also contact him
    via emailaddress;[email protected]
    website;, for quick response call him or
    message him through Whatsapp instant messenger with his number+27797427509.
    Good luck, i hope you find your heart desires.

    While I am huge and long-time fan and believe we might be distant cousins (NYC, Uncle Manny, same last name connected, and oddly enough,my father is a retired ophthalmologist who was friends with your father) I can you it’s not me!

    Looking forward to a Part 2 where you solve this and it ends in a hurry. This kind of bullshit IS scary, especially in an age where everything is transparent and everything can be found. Your post reminds of a quote of yours’, something along the lines of, “my two biggest motivators are fear and revenge.” RIGHT ON!

  56. PNL  —  September 30, 2016 at 10:24 am

    Mr Roth,
    I’ve been getting 917 area code hangup calls for months. I just got one 10 minutes ago, in fact. I think it must be a robot sales call or the like. I don’t know for sure but I certainly wouldn’t worry about it.

    Take care,

    • Elaine Kay  —  October 1, 2016 at 8:48 am

      Another good point. Google the number? Sure you have already. Many of the robo-call numbers come up on the ‘net.

    I read about this on Eddie Trunk’s website. David, these people are usually big-time cowards. BTW, I support the death penalty for stalkers and identity thieves, but then I tend to extremes in these matters. Don’t let it harsh your vibe too much, Ice Cream Man

  63. Elaine Kay  —  October 1, 2016 at 8:47 am

    Well, you have a whole lot of concerned fans, which is great!! Seems like this post has received the greatest number of comments so far. If I may make a suggestion… is it possible that this is some collection agency and you’ve been a victim of identity theft?

    Anyway, best of luck getting this straightened out. If not, there’s always Mossberg!

  64. Kevin R Vulcan Ab  —  October 1, 2016 at 8:56 am

    It could be some sort of internet application that is used to make the call? Perhaps the stalker is a computer programmer.
    I have also heard of hackers being able to clone your cell phone and sort of take it over when your phone rings the stalkers phone that is cloned rings too.
    if you are using a smart phone it is possible for someone who gets close enough to you to to steal the data or clone it. also check your credit card statements perhaps you have been hacked.

  65. Gina  —  October 1, 2016 at 11:17 am

    Did he/she say something? I had 2 stalkers in my life. The first one called me at night and hung up the phone. It turns out that it was the husband of a friend. The other one groaned. I had an idea who it may be, so I took a dog whistles and … The next day had a man in the neighborhood a acute hearing loss.
    There also were some physical attacks in my life. Both make equally nervous, scared and so on.
    If you need a break: Go on vacation or just come over. Give me a call…

  66. jacquelyn  —  October 1, 2016 at 7:17 pm

    If it’s a cell phone, maybe get rid of it for a while, if possible. Or, get a low tech flip phone just for emergencies. We used to get along just fine without cell phones in the good old days.

  67. Kelly Cole  —  October 1, 2016 at 7:42 pm

    Hi Dave – you do have a couple of options. One is a device that activates and signals when your phone rings and captures all calls. This device can’t be manipulated because it does not have a number it identifies with and your phone is fooled to not know it’s there. 2nd option is another device with similar cloud like technology with a lot more security. Either way – you have options. No one should live in fear and you are absolutely right. They are criminals, insane and if they are doing this to you, they are doing it to others. You can direct email me for more info on devices and methods and I can assist you. These devices are portable and can travel with you, by the way.

  68. Kelly Cole  —  October 1, 2016 at 7:59 pm

    Dave – Btw, to add to my previous post I am intentionally not revealing what these devices are called and I’m being slightly ambiguous about describing the actual technology in case your stalker is reading this…..

Am sure his going to help you do it, good luck..

    Go luck though..

  72. Todd P  —  October 2, 2016 at 9:13 pm

    A few Q’s:
    1) Are the calls 5:30-6am PST and 2pm PST? (Sounds like East Coast work hours 8:30 – 5pm..stalker starts and ends their day with you.)
    2) Do you answer? Do you say “Hello”? (“Hello” can be a trigger for an automated robot to speak back to you. Change it up..answer with “This is Don.”
    3) Do they respond? Do they say something consistently? (Certain words or phrases can give a profile of their origin.)
    4) Have you conducted a factory reset on your phone? (If the calls are not showing up on your bill – they may be data/internet placed calls with a trojan app which appear to be a phone based call but are instead something like WhatsApp)
    5) How many people with your old # hire pranksters and misfits? (Yes, Howard – I’m thinking of your whackpack – maybe)
    6) Will those you have investigating tell you who when they find out? (Be sure to call the pencilneck and tell them to stop. Do not let them weasel or shuffle – give them the directive and be firm. Don’t leave a window.)
    7) I’d say reach out to me but I’m too stinkin busy D-Ro 😉 Reach out to Beau D & Assoc..they will make it go away.

  73. Pantokraterix  —  October 2, 2016 at 9:41 pm

    Reposting because I entered my website incorrectly. If they’re calling your cell phone and you’re not answering and they’re not leaving a voicemail, it won’t appear on your bill because it’s not an actual connection. If they’re spoofing someone else’s number (and it’s not hard to do) then that won’t help anyhow. In Canada, the police have a direct line to cell providers’ security teams to try to track numbers. I’d start there.

    Dave,very disturbing to hear all of this but you got to outsmart them. ..and you will!!!!! This highly likely means going through illegal ways since all the ones you already asked for help can’t (or won’t!!!)….it’s a different world in cyberspace and they (unless they are a huge fan) will not go where they are seen! ! I (like soooooo many others) want to help you but the ones that really can are very underground for obvious reasons….so think about that and you will at least have to “protect them ” in a way… in order for them to reach out to you…and ALWAYS trust your instincts and never go about this alone!!Stalking sucks big time cause you don’t know where it will lead….Your safety AND sanity first! !!! We will all make sure that this predator is turned into a prey ok?! Maybe talk about this in your blog part2 and opening a safe temporary email or something for them to contact you…Btw make sure you don’t isolate yourself and keep doing a lot of cool stuff etc but amp up your security for the time being ok!!! Remember that eveyone who’s had a stalker knows what that does to your mind and know you are no exception…millions of peeps every year in the US alone are dealing with this shit! !! We are all here protecting you with a invicible circle!!!!!

  78. Stephanie  —  October 3, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    David, I have some informations about that ( I mean it for real! :/ ) – but I don’t want to write it here in public ( because these people could read then what I write here in public and thats not good ) ! If you want to know it, then let me know it by sending me a message to my e-mail-adress (maybe you or another person you trust!) ! Greetings and best wishes.

    Dear Mr. Roth:
    I heard about this subject while driving home from court this evening (announced on Hair Nation). My two cents would be to collectively memorialize all relevant events into a single police report and have your local counsel subpoena your cell phone carrier’s database history to detail the source from the incoming signal. I would then hand that sheet over to your tech and p.i., put on a pot of coffee and let them single out the actual source and location. If it were robotic, the pros would’ve figured that out by now. Chin up and keep on keeping on. My best, Mike

  82. Dana  —  October 6, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    Why not just change your number. Someone of your caliber needs to change numbers of phones and credit cards etc. frequently. It’s not me, by the way. I did message you alot on FB, but I only wished to get a “HI” from you, then you made it to where nobody could message you {sigh} Anywhoo.. just change your number. LOVE YOU DAVE!

    I am sure all will work out eventually. You are a smart guy and have lots of contacts. I’m sure a lot of savvy folks will help you uncover this and find out who this individual is. Until then, hang tough and thanks for sharing so some of your fans can help.

    Truly want to thank you for all the “smiles” you’ve give me since 1978. I ended up playing professionally as a rock drummer in the mid 80s. Headlined all the clubs on the Strip. Used to go to the Sunset Grill before shows hoping to meet you there at some point. I always got the chicken sandwich which I was told you liked. I’ve met all 3 of the other guys in VH during my time in the business. Never had the honor of meeting you unfortunately. Hung out with Greg Bissonette a couple of times back in the day. Great guy. Perhaps one day I can shake your hand and thank you for your tireless effort to the craft. You are the best of the best. Thank you for all the years of service Dave. I know it will all shake out and you’ll get this solved. All the best, Rikk

    Dave as an ex combat vet of two wars and multiple combat tours I know you’re smart enough or I pray to have guy’s protecting you with a good skillset. Not just some big lummox. I am talking ex delta members or British SAS, Navy SEALS. Money worth the protection. I get it man I grew up next to you in Burbank, California and my cousins knew you when you guy’s were called Mammoth. I can totally see how this would upset you for I have severe PTSD from all the things I did and saw in wars. You’re probably already way past this page, but hire a very well known cyber tech guy and trap them. If he or she can get an ISP it’s game over. Always loved your stuff Dave. I thought Eat em and Smile blew the doors off most of your old VH catalog!! The tour at the Forum was LEGENDARY!! and you also know Gina Zamparelli, which is a bonus. she is a amazing woman. Just keep your eyes and ears focused. Remember the age old adage keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Nothing but the best to ya Dave!!

    HI Dave, I was actually looking for a way to email you, came upon this website and dont really know for sure that it is …really you. If it really is you, I just wanted to tell you
    I was 14 years old when I first heard your voice. I went to many many concerts in the Phila area .. and some years later saw you in Delaware at a place called The Big Kahuna.
    my oh my, so many years have passed. Still, my very favorite David Lee Roth memory is when I brought with me a cloth/sheet banner to the Philadelphia concert in
    the early 80’s .. I had my girlfriend and myself holding the banner.. before the show in a picture.. (she has the picture) .. but another picture of when you finally had
    it in your hands on stage. Yep, the very next day, driving to work, it was talked about on the radio.. how cool that experience was. One other time .. we once again
    made it down to the front row area.. (we were very wild ladies back and You were entertaining the masses.. pointed at me.. and said the words : “I know I
    can get YOU off” .. lol.. oh blush .. 🙂 anyway, I just wanted to tell you, that .. while I”m not a stalker.. I wanted to tell you that I have always enjoyed your entertaining
    style and awesome vocals. If you go on FB, I’m under Lee Christaldi Smith .. anyway, hello, and I got to thinking, just block the freaking number calling you.. I have to
    do that with many unknown numbers. Hope the situation gets fixed for you. oxoxo

    For over 20 years now my dad has relentlessly stalked my mum and he has beaten her, destroyed her property, tried to get her evicted from her home and fired from her job, he lived secretly in our basement, tapped our phone, stole our mail, wrote nasty letters to everyone we knew, sent my mum 100’s of hateful and bizarre letters and rang incessantly. His sick fixation has landed him in jail but that has not changed anything. My mum and I have done everything right: Blocked him, reported him, moved, changed names and inform everyone but still he hunts us.

    I saw this on your twitter..although I AM in The USA at the moment, it’s certainly not me. I have been stalked also, even knew my address and in the (same) industry. Frightening all the same.

    “Living life to the fullest, buckshots and bullets!”
    I can only speak for myself, being that I’m a light sleeper, induced or not, naturally guarded. I have had a few stalking incidents, to where I wouldn’t leave my house, all I can say is I feel so much better knowing I have a security system and a shotgun by my side. I just sold one of your JD road cases from your solo tour that a friend of mine bought in the 90s. Your cool dude, blessings your direction!

    Are you able to update us on this?

  97. Chris Sack  —  April 23, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    I’ve had a stalker myself before. It ain’t fun! People I tell the story to now laugh, but they can’t relate. Dude, I met you at the Tunnel in NYC in about the mid 1990’s. I can barely remember it though. Both of us were in no state to discuss the philosophical questions I had about music. I kinda get the jest as to why you resent the Van Halen’s, but wonder why you can’t let the impact of the music and a feeling of duty to imbibing us in that creativity to supersede any issue you have with them. We are simply humans that too often let our egos derail us or our resentments contain us. Screw the past! You are the true lead singer of Van Halen! Do whatever it takes to remove whatever negativity exists between you and Eddie. If you do so and they are still dicks, then humble yourself and let it ride. The music is far more important because given your realm of influence, self indulgences matter not!

    Dear Dave
    I had come on your site to find a way to write you and saw your blog. My younger brother just idolized you and was murdered a couple years back by a jealous ex of a friend he was staying with. I never dreamed nor
    He that that could happen and it’s caused me to feel afraid and take things much more serious, so you absolutely should be proactive.There are some unstable people out there and it’s scary. I had promised him a painting of you and or Van Halen and never got around to it, much to my regret. Now I’m doing a huge painting of you and wanted to have you sign a quote “The worlds a stage and I want the brightest spot” DLR.
    Nothing will bring him back but this is for him and it would have made him smile. My email is [email protected]
    Thank you

    2 of the worst days. The day you realize you have a stalker and the day you learn your stalker has lost interest.

  100. Bryon Ayers  —  October 18, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    Dave, I’m a technically challenged guy from East TN. I can’t help. I’m not musically challenged either but play a mean air guitar! Growing up I emulated your stage presence and dress code. I’m now 51 years old and still enjoy watching you from the 80’s and 90’s. I say that all to say this. I am quite mesmerized by your creativity, persona, style and energy. What would it take for this East TN boy to get the opportunity to sit down with DLR and ask you some questions about what makes you tick? I would be amazed to hear back from you!

  101. Kevin  —  November 15, 2018 at 9:05 pm

    David, I came to assist you on resolving this stalker issue . Unfortunately, my time travel machine malfunctioned and I missed it by two years. I will try again. Have patience,

  102. Wendy  —  November 16, 2018 at 3:17 am

    My husband left me for a younger woman and I was devastated. It was as if she had him under an evil spell, Paul turned against me overnight without any warning. It happened last year, I was desperate so I used every single spell casting website that I could find with no results. A friend sent me the link to Dr. Todd’s site and I contacted him. He started working with me on June. As a result from all of his wonderful work, my man and I are back together. I’m so happy and privileged to have such a great person like you on my side. Thank you! Todd’s contact manifest [email protected] com…

    Thanks Dr. Todd! My lover is back. I ordered the ULTIMATE LOVE SPELL and it took only 5 days to work… I feel so happy. I hope to get married soon! Todd’s email: manifestspellcast @ gmail. com…

    Try Elaine Kay. She’s been telling everyone who will listen you 2 are married and has been very convincing. On Facebook she made a profile of you and put a group together known as Friends of Roth’s Treehouse. Just letting you know .

  105. Sandra Staats  —  December 23, 2018 at 7:19 pm

    David you should know that a person who is using the names Elaine Kazarian, Elaine Kay, Elaine Engelhardt Garcia, Rebecca Lyn Viers, Dave Roth and maybe others is telling people you are secretly married and you are going to go public with a reality show called I married the real David Lee Roth. She’s been telling us nasty details about your sex life that we don’t want to hear. This is not a prank. There are 30 of us from a group that she had on facebook. Most of us were or are ill and she preyed on us! She is dangerous to some people.

      I think this is not the chick at all. She knew him growing up only. She’s on many sites .. She don’t know near as much as some chicks do.. I met her and may be wrong but you never know but I really feel strongly about the chic. She’ll tell everyone she’s his and to leave him alone.. Now there’s guys that out there with his name or parts of his name that make me wonder too

  106. Sherry  —  January 6, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    We all know who it is Dave.. If you ever look around on your sites fans have created. I know and many others. If I were a betting woman, I’d bet my home on it.

  107. Deb  —  February 8, 2019 at 5:33 pm

    this person goes by David Roth and girlfriend Elaine. She has taken down her FB page because people called her out when she said she was with you. Sick people in this world. I truly do not believe this guy is David Lee Roth.
