Lee Roth has to get 14 stitches to his nose after he injures it during a baton twirling segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Kimmel:
He clips his nose and actually moves the nose. The world of baton twirling is very dangerous. He came offstage and our medic was trying to stop the bleeding. There was good deal of blood. David wanted to put duct tape on it…Immediately after the show he went to the hospital and the doctor put 14 stitches in his nose.

These types of songs have a wicked sense of humor and a bite at the same time, just like real people. With Van Halen music, there’s such a dark humor to it that a whole lot of people have literally marched off to war to that music.
