Junkyard singer is in jail

Post by TexAzHair »

David Roach posted on Facebook yesterday that he was getting ready to go spend some time in jail (DWI?)

He said his GF had contacted the jail to let them know that he will need to detox

Hope all goes well for Mr Roach..... love Junkyard!.... and without him there is no Junkyard

He's looked pretty rough the last few years when I've seen them. When he heads to the stage he looks like someone just woke him up. But give him/them credit, once Junkyard gets going they bring a hard rocking straight ahead kick ass show.

unpaid tickets, I think, though the DWI doesn't sound too unlikely, either.

just wondering what he did with that $10k+ that was raised for him on GoFundMe...

Dave always came across as a guy that lived the hard drinking bar fly trouble making lifestlye throughout all of Junkyard's lyrics. For better or worse. There's some honesty in the salesmanship there.

Now I ain’t talkin’ about no light-weight, penny ante weekend warrior
I’m talkin’ bout drinkin’
Talkin’ when got two bucks left, you don’t want nothin’ to eat
You just gotta keep drinkin’
Talkin’ bout when you get home at three but you don’t make it til four
Cause you can’t find the door
I went home went straight to my bed, I didn’t make it that far
Fell flat on my head
Woke up to the morning light, burned a hole in my brain
Cause the sun’s so bright
Reached out for the first thing I could find was as half drunk bottle
Of some cheap wine
I stood up and I drank it down, started my day by spinning around
And I can't see nothing through my bloodshot eyes
The way I’m livin’ you'd guess it ain’t no surprise
Ya, whether I live or I die
We’ve seen it work we’ve seen it all before
We got you now you’re such a tragic bore
You keep knockin’ on my door

Ya but there’s no way out so I’m stayin’ in
Drinkin’, drinkin’ my blooze again
Ya but there’s no way out so I’m stayin’ in
Drinkin’, drinkin’ my blooze again

His girl gave that dude head, so I think the judge should go easy on him.

I can never remember if this is from a Junkyard or a Sea Hags song.

Eh. He lives like he wants to, not like he should. Yeah.

I guess that’s life in Hollywood.

Shrug.

He’ll come out a better person. He’s a simple man with all the time in the world.

I offered to buy David a drink after a show a few years back and he said he was cleaning up. Had water in his hand. I wish him all the best. Love junkyard
