    Dear Edward,

    I know you are probably quite confused about Van Halen's future, but I also know that in your heart you are aware that the choice must be David Lee Roth.

    I remember reading an interview of yours after the depature of Hagar and among the many things you mentioned something you said I have never forgotten. You said "At least Roth didn't lie". Please remember those words when it is time for you to make your decision.

    Also, keep in mind the way Roth has carried himself this summer. No cardboard cutouts of Eddie Van Halen, no "dry humping" of a Eddie Van Halen shirt, no bashing of Hagar or yourself in the media. Dave has been just being Dave. You know that probably better than anybody.

    I could go on for quite a while longer but, you know these two gentlemen better than I.

    Edward, you have always said "It's for the fans." Now, give the fans what they want and call David Lee Roth.

    Sincerely,

    EVH FANATIC

    Yes Eddie, all Dave has done is call you names that blatantly allude to your alcoholism, a disease which you yourself have said has lead to some of the most destructive times in your life. Thank god Dave has found the high road!

    BTW Eddie, if you'd care to respond, you'll have to do so in the Opinions forum. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    </font>[/QUOTE]Boy Glenn you are funny! For someone who claims to be a Dave era fan first you do spend alot of time bashing him.

    As I mentioned Ed KNOWS Dave well. I'd rather be called Eddie Van Heinken then have someone destroy a cardboard cutout of me or dry hump a shirt.

    I don't know, I just can't see Eddie sitting there giggling whenever he hears Dave calling him Van Heineken and then saying "Oh that Dave, he's such a kidder. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img] "

    What a load of shit! Explain how what I said was a Dave bash. Has Dave, or has Dave not, been calling Eddie a name that is quite clearly a reference to alcohol? Is it not widely known that Eddie is a major alcoholic? Eddie has stated that his alcoholism has lead to problems and poor decisions in his life.

    There was no Dave bash there at all, not my problem that you're just looking for them anywhere.

    As I mentioned Ed KNOWS Dave well.
    Sure, but if Eddie loved Dave's sense of humor so much they'd probably be able to stand each other, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Remember the last time the two of them stood onstage together, and Dave was "just being Dave". Yeah, Eddie looked like he was loving that too.

    I'd rather be called Eddie Van Heinken then have someone destroy a cardboard cutout of me or dry hump a shirt.
    Great, but you and I aren't Eddie Van Halen. It's not important what would be offensive to you or I given the above options.

    It's funny, Eddie takes a lot of shit for being a stick in the mud, in particular when it comes to the humor and style of David Lee Roth, but suddenly I'm supposed to believe that Eddie is probably loving being called Eddie Van Heinken by his old partner? Possibly he does, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

    Better than being called Eddie Van Schlitz or Eddie Van Pabst.

    </font>[/QUOTE]Never said Eddie "loves it" I just think that it doesn't bother him like people think it does.

    Your opinion is your opinion Glenn and I understand it. [img]smile.gif[/img]
