Watch the Late Joan Rivers Interview GWAR and Van Halen’s David Lee Roth

  • Axl Rosenberg

Joan Rivers has died at age 81. The outpouring of grief from the metal community thus far has been minimal, limited, as far as Vince and I have seen at least, to this tweet Motörhead from and this tweet from Body Count’s Ice-T. Even though she had the speaking voice of a Cookie Monster vocalist and the face of a Slipknot mask, I guess she wasn’t extreme enough for the extreme music scene.

Maybe these will convince you all that Joan Rivers was metal as fuqq, though: a 1990 interview the comédienne GWAR’s Oderus Urungus and Beefcake the Mighty, and an interview with David Lee Roth conducted I dunno when (but it looks like it was roughly around the same time, maybe a few years earlier). Both are every bit as entertaining as you’d imagine. Watch:

R.I.P. Joan! May you forever broadcast from the red carpet at the Pearly Gates.
