    I'll bet they are more amicable than the rumor-mongers want us to believe. Dave referred Eddie to his uncle, Jack Roth, a cancer surgeon in Houston. Dave and Eddie have a long history together. While they do not agree on everything and have very different personalities, I would guess that rumors alleging they cannot be in the studio at the same time are a crock. Even Valerie Bertinelli has said that Ed is a lot more forgiving than she -- and it's clear she does (did?) not get along with Dave. What do you think?

    I'd be willing to bet that they don't like each other and most of the rumors are true. Most families in America are comprised of a bunch of people who can't stand each other and they're related by blood. When it comes to dealing with other people, comprising, egos etc. history and past means nothing. I've written off people that I knew for 15 years because they pissed me off so I wouldn't doubt these guys doing the same.

When I say Dave and Ed have history, I mean more than just knowing each other since high school. There's something about having a perfect professional connection or great professional success together that can make people more tolerant of each other. (Heck, what do I know? I'm just an optimist . . . )

    Seriously, I don't think they hate each other, I think it's even worse than that; they don't trust each other. Eddie believes that Dave broke a bond by leaving in 1985 and Dave believes he was flat out lied to and deceived in 1996.

    If you don't trust someone, you can't deal with them on a day to day basis without there being problems. And these aren't the kind of problems and insecurities that can be overcome as if they were 26 year old rock stars. There's FAR too much water under the bridge to just shrug it off and ignore it for the sake of the band.

    In 1981 they all NEEDED the band to stay together. Now, they really don't need it anymore, so it makes it harder to step back to a place where you're dealing with people you really don't trust.

    Funny, but as I read this topic, I hear my daughter's video playing downstairs on the TV. It's "Fox & The Hound". Anyone remember this? Well, it just hit me the similarities between Tod & Copper and Ed & Dave...

    -both grew up together and pledged to be friends forever (I'm sure Dave and Ed early on thought this might be the case)...
    -both parties split up and each side grew and matured into what nature intended...
    -both parties came face to face with their childhood chums and it was obviously different...
    -both fought with the other one visciously, even drawing blood (figuratively in VH's part)
    -both came together and reunited when the chips were down, albeit for a brief time...

    Am I reaching here? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Could be...I need to go turn that silly movie off.

    Oh no!! [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] That means I have to go back down and watch it again (for the 25th time)!!! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    hahahaha! Just the ramblings of a very observant daddy and VH fan! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I'll try to get started, Ms. Lawchick. If I don't get it done, do I have to stand in the corner again?? Just as long as I don't have to wear a dunce cap that says "I love Axl" on it, I'll be cool! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Here is a subject that has really been done to death but I'll comment on it anyway. Nobody knows what the feelings are between Ed and Dave except those really close to the two. We can speculate and theorize but when it comes down to it, it's just a guess. I've been pissed at people before only to get along with them really well. Some people I can't stand and nothing will change that. If the two of them have problems, I'm sure they will deal with it the way they want to. I hope that they are on good enough terms where it will mean a reunited VH will come forth in the future.

    I don't think they know if they get along or not.

    They've got a working relationship, or did anyway. By all accounts they were never friends, although they enjoyed each other's company in '96 prior to events overshadowing everything.

    Go along to get along comes to mind here.
