David Lee Roth Changes His Name


Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has changed his name -- more or less.

In an announcement released Monday, the singer's reps say after reading that country act Lady Antebellum has changed its name to "Lady A," Roth was inspired to "change" his middle name to "L."

The announcement reads, "Diamond Dave, following Lady Antebellum's example, will be dropping the 'Lee.' From now on he wants us all to call him 'David L. Roth' or simply 'El Roth.'"
