David Lee Roth's Habit Of Paying For Hot Groupies

David Lee Roth had such an unquenchable thirst for sex during his Van Halen days that he invented an ingenious way to score at the band's concerts - doling out generous cash rewards to staffers who supplied him with the hottest girls, according to a new, unauthorized bio of the platinum-selling band.

The spandex-clad rocker developed a "streamlined" system of "ordering sex at shows" by distributing laminated backstage passes to the security staff - each marked with [the staffer's] initials," writes Ian Christe in "Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga," out in August from Wiley.

"Then, from the stage, [Roth would call] out, 'Blonde, pink top, sector A-4,' pointing out the girls he wanted to see after the show. Whatever crew member's name Dave saw flapping around the girl's neck backstage at the end of the night would get a $100 bonus at breakfast the next morning. As far as intimacy went, it was a little like the invention of the drive-through window at McDonald's, but the morale of tour staff remained high."
