Watching David Lee Roth scissor kick in fluorescent yellow karate firefighter/hospital scrubs, and by that I mean they had suspenders, was probably one of the finest Bumbershoot moments I’d been privy to. His tan made George Hamilton look like me. I was with my old roommate Carl, pretty much going hoarse from singing Van Halen really badly. Then we spotted Kim Warnick in the crows nest on the stage. I could practically see her black palm tree hair move from the wind produced by his showmanship turbines. It stays with me until this day. I can almost taste the glazed dougnuts.
