    He can't play guitar anymore or he'd be doing that right? He's obviously lost his chops.

    Eddie's also an asshole, an alcoholic, an imbecile, and would be nothing if it weren't for David Lee Roth.

    These are just my opinions and I'm entitled to them. Ask Brett, MikeL, Glenn or Homeunit. They'll back me on this.

    Yeah, I heard Brian Young was a better guitarist than Ed, too. Eddie was wise to hang it up when he did.

    Thank you for keeping this list so neutral. God forbid we have any topics about what a great person Eddie Van Halen is.

    Asshole : Yes
    Simpleton easily manipulated by others : No question
    Imbicile : Most likely
    Washed up : Doubtful

    Being dumbass or an asshole does not erode talent. As a human being, Ed is pretty pathetic and obviously has no self-discipline (he IS still smoking after all). But he has been and will always be one of the greatest guitar players ever.

    Eddie really is a sort of idiot savant. With a guitar he's an absolute genius, and almost everybody can agree to that. In most other aspects of life and career he's a bungler. Not as bad as a lot of other people in his business, but no where near being a normal human being. Being a rock-star has to fuck with a person's sense of reality.

    Did I mislead you with the subject line into thinking this post would be neutral or was it something else?

    Hard to start a topic about that since it isn't true.

    Darn it man, grow up. You Dave fan's are obsessed with "the big hypocrisy", even when there is none. You're always looking for an easy way to prove some kinda point about Dave that no one really will care about except other Dave fans. Tell me, how much sense does that really make?

    What about Alex? Both he and Ed seem to take great pride in being The Asshole Duo nowadays.

    That's an interesting way of looking at this. If you bash Dave here it's just another day at the office.

    If you bash Ed here you start a riot.

    </font>[/QUOTE]I was being sarcastic as you were, man. I don't bash either, I call 'em as I sees 'em, but I see what point you're trying to prove.....and I agree with your viewpoint, but you can't make a leopard change his spots.

    It's all relative, man.
