    ...Remember when Dave was on Letterman? I'm not sure about the year--but it must have been 1984--Rumor has it that Dave and Ed were supposed to be guests together, but Ed was too coked up to go onstage...so Dave went on alone while Ed lurked backstage. Rocks of cocaine were falling out of DLR's nose as he chattered on to Letterman. [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    I've never seen that episode of Letterman. Love to see it though. Can we get some conformation from the boot Gods here on this? Out.

    I saw the show where Dave was promoting the Crazy from the Heat EP. Have it on tape actually. That was in early January '85. Is this the show you're talking about?

    I know the one. I had it on tape for years also. Dave was his usual self, rambling on about whatever and cackling maniacly. I remember Dave reading an excerpt from a VH biography someone wrote about the "code" Dave used for roadies to pick up certain honeys in the audience. Of course, Dave didn't deny it. That was right before the breakup.

    As far as Ed, coke and the other stuff, I've never heard that one. Ed has made several appearances with the band over the years, but not on this particular show.

    If this story were true, my guess is that DLR would've made sure to prominently include it in his "Crazy From The Heat" autobiography -- especially in the aftermath of the '96 reunion fiasco since this story would be another dig at EVH.

    i'm nost so sure. with dave i get the feeling he could write a dozen of those books with stories.

    perhaps it just got chopped when the editor was editing out 'asshole meanspirited' comments.
