    Few people entertain David Lee Roth like he entertains himself.

    When chatting with VH1 Radio, he talked about songwriting, and he offered really cogent advice to aspiring artists saying, "Most artists who go with pen and ink or start with canvas and brush will tell you you're going to spend seven times the amount on erasers that you do for the actual lead point of the pencil. All good artists will tell you you're going to spend a lot more time erasing than drawing."

    Oh Dave! We love the metaphors. But that's actually some sound, solid advice.
