    This is from the book Behind Blue Eyes-The Life of Pete Townshend by Geoffrey Giuliano.

    Guitar acrobat Eddie Van Halen liked to tease his elder colleague about his often less than sterling soloing. He'd phone Townshend and quip, "Pete, I've just been listening to Live At Leeds. Christ, man, that's one great album. You play some fantastic mistakes!"

    No way?, Ed really said that about PT? Man, well I guess that could be considered a great compliment, while playing mistakes you often come up with the most stellar shit!

    And of course let us not forget the comliment Eddie payed to Jimi Page. "I love him, but he plays live like he has a broken hand." LOL. I love that one. So true. Out.

    This is from the January 1981 Guitar World.


    GW: What do you think of other "high energy" players around, like Joe Perry, Ted Nugent and Jimmy Page?

    EVH: I hate doing this becaue you're going to make me come off as an asshole. Enough people hate me already.

    GW: Do you like Joe Perry?

    EVH: I don't like him because I don't think he likes me. I met him once. I walked up to shake his hand, and he looked at me and walked away. As a guitarist I don't think he's that good. He lacks feel.

    GW: What about Ted Nugent?

    EVH: Nugent is a very nice guy, but I don't really like his tone.

    GW: And Jimmy Page?

    EVH: Jimmy Page is an excellent producer. Led Zeppelin I and II are classics. As a player he's very good in the studio, but I've never seen him play very well live. He's sloppy. He plays like he's got a broken hand and he's two years old. If you put out a good album and play like a two year old, what's the purpose?

    I'm all for it, as long as the sentence isn't "Glenn, dude, you're a fucking asshole dude". That's where I draw the line.

    I mean, a man has to have principles.

    Wow! 81' n' shit? That's amazing, I don't think I have that one. What's the cover look like?

    JP(LZ) playing live like he has a broken hand and playing like a two year old? Waah! lol ...

    I think JP(A) finally got his feeling back in the 90's though? But back in the day I'm sure! lol ... Uhm? Kick-ass post Glenn, I haven't seen an "actual" GW quote to this day? lol ...

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Unfortunately, I don't have the whole magazine, just photo copies of the interview itself. Didn't the official site used to have scans of some of the magazine covers that VH had appeared on?
