Album of the Day
David Lee Roth continued to scale hard-rock heights with SKYSCRAPER, the performer's second full-length solo album. The 1988 Warner Bros. collection was produced by Roth and guitar virtuoso Steve Vai, who together add a high degree of polish to these 10 tracks, most of which were co-written by the pair. Highlights include “Hot Dog and a Shake,” Billboard Rock chart-topper “Damn Good” and Top 10 hit “Just Like Paradise”; the album as a whole also reached the Top 10 and went double-platinum. The band (which includes bassist Billy Sheehan shortly before he left to form Mr. Big) sounds like it's having a blast, and the sense of fun is contagious. This is David Lee Roth's birthday, and we'll wish him a happy one with SKYSCRAPER.
