    i was just thinking how relieved i felt when i saw that eddie looked healthy and was able to speak normally in that little video he made when he opted to stay away from the NAMM show.

    if he's not doing well now, maybe things took a turn for the worse around that time?
    if that's true, then he should have looked pretty bad in the video, right? unless, of course, he made that video way before the NAAM show just in case he wouldn't wind up going. nah. he's not that calculated.

    how sad is it that we have to just keep guessing all the time. ugh. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    All this secrecy is just stupid. How hard is it to keep in touch with your fans? If Eddie is/was sick, how hard is it just to say that he is and is concentrating on getting better before moving forward? If they are working with Dave, then why not just say so, and tell your fans that you're trying to work it out?

    Second thought

    Maybe the status of his health changed a couple of times ?

    i can tell ya this much - the only thing worse than battling a serious illness is being a public figure who's battling a serious illness.

    Does anyone know of any other 'major' bands that keep their fans unaware of what's going on? I'm not being sarcastic either, just wondering. I'm not a public figure so I really don't know how they (VH) are feeling about this. The smart thing for them would be to just communicate thru their website for the fans. A few words now and then wouldn't be so bad. Of course, we don't know what's really going on. Maybe it's something that they don't want to share. Hey, that's their own business. On the flip side, as fans, we care for the band not only on the music side but also on a personal side. I don't know but what else can I say about all of this. I can only sit and wait.

    Well, he has short hair and was wearing that damn half glove on his hand ....

    But, it wasnt like you could really get a close in view of his face. He seemed in good spirits..laughing and cutting up, etc.

    IMO, he looked OKAY !!

    i have felt for a long time Eddie's is sicker than has been let on. I understand that too I can see him not wanting something private like his health in the news, so the best thing to do is not say anything at all. As far as the nam video went the first thing I thought was he didnt look good. I hope he is fine and all is well but when Dave's statement came out the first thing I thought about was Ed's health I hope I am wrong and I hope he is ok.

    he certainly didn't look like he did in 1982.
    i mean, the booze, drugs, and cigarettes do a number on your looks even if you never develop cancer.
    but, as far as someone undergoing cancer treatment/prevention goes, and as far as someone who recently had his hip replaced goes, i think he looked pretty good.

    damn, this IS frustrating!!!

    Maybe the tabloids should just run some bad piece on Eddie like they did with Suzanne Somers, and that way he and the band will finally open their mouths.

    Damn good idea Cabo1984! Anybody here work for a tabloid? Maybe this would flush the band out of hiding.

    At this point in the game, I just want the band to start opening their mouths, not just a measly 3 sentence statement on their web site, the fans deserve more than they have been getting.

    If the man's sick, its personal, leave him alone. I'd hate for somebody to be all up in my grill if I was bad off. I'd shoot the fuckers. Then I'd take their wallet. Yeah!!!!!!!!
