    Default What Really Happened on the Last Night of the 2004 Tour?

    I know this was discussed at some length before the hack. I never really got the real deal. I know Ed was pissed, right? He stopped playing a good part of the end on "Dreams" and smashed his guitar. There was also a whip cream fight of some sort?...

    Who was there?
    Who knows the real story..Was it just in anger of ending it with Peavy?
    Any pics of any of this?

    Had a clip of it over at G101, and from what I could tell it was just a bunch of over blown hype, which is nothing new at the Links by the way.

    I even asked Ed's tech about the alleged blow up, and he stressed that whatever it was, it wasn't due to any technical difficulties or anything like that. The fact there was a smashed up EVH Charvel with pics of Ed smiling with the guitar in pieces up on ebay, shows me that it was all just a goof. I'll see if I can find those pics for ya.

    Depending on who's take, it sounds like possibly tensions came to a head that night, not to mention "if" Ed is in as bad shape as we hear, I am sure that didn't help matters, but only time will tell.. Sucka, can you make out what Ed says in the mike after he totals his guitar?

    Haven't seen it in awhile, but I don't remember being able to make out what he's saying. He's always mumbled into the mic though, so that's nothing new.

    I had read an article about the last night that the 5 star package people said when asked if any pranks were gonna go down, they said "You don't want to be in the bathroom during Right Now." Didn't he break a guitar during right now?
    Pete Townsend broke guitars all of the time. It's just the media looking for any sign of VH to break up again. I've seen that pic of Ed with the broken guitar. Mike has a pic of him ripping the strings off of a bass. If something was seriously wrong, I think we would of found out by now.

    I forget who is was but they were backstage.....maybe it was Sams nephue. He said something to the affect that Ed was hammered and picking fights with everyone that was in staggering distance. He also mentioned something about Ed rubbing lemons into his eye's.

    And thats about what its worth.

    I think I remember reading that interview you did with Ed's tech. Wasn't he the guy that's been a tech for several other big names?
    Thanks Sucka, It would be cool to see the pics!

    Yeah, Eddie screamed at everyone backstage and told Sammy he loves him and then would curse him out and even went after Mike and Mike went back at him...and he was yelling about the writing all over his body and Sammy tuned to his nephew with a look like "see what I have to put up with"...

    And at dinner that night with Mike and 9on10scale Sammy said if that fucker doesn't get 3 months of therapy I'm not going back...

    A big thanks to skyburst38 for reposting 9on10scale's take on the last night of 2004 tour.

    skyburst wrote
    I saved a copy of this thread that was written by 9on10scale, Sammy's nephew

    I will type it just like he wrote it

    "Well wwhere do I start? First I am thankful this reuion did happen becaue I forgot how great a band actually can be while playing together)the show in Phoenix) back in August might have been one of the best Van Halen shows I have ever seen and I have seen close to 50. But after Friday night I personally will be content with Sam and Mikey. I get in free and get the royal treatment but you the fans who shell out allot and I mean allot of gash to have to put up with fucking drunk idiot is in my opionion a travesty. The man was shit faced around noon, when to be woke up and drank again. He started a fight with Sam, Mike, Irving and all of us in the dressing room prior to the show. No reason just a drunked fool. Sammy turnned and looked at me and said "now you see why this is so fucking hard to do" man I do this for fun and this just isn't fun! Mikey tried ot ignore it but finally had words with Ed also. As he walked around back int he dressing rooms punching walls and rubbing a raw lemon in his eyes and all over his face wiched was drawned on with black marker(he didn't even know who did it)? I will say this, this is is the honest truth, Ed acting out was his way to tell Sammy he doesn't want him to leave. A couple of times during the fight he sould say Sam ou just don't udnerstand me and I love you man. Then he would call him names and all kinds of stuff. It's like dealing with a 2 year old. I won't go into the show right now later I will, after the show, Ed left instantly and I had dinner with Mike and Sam. They both were very emotional that Mike and Sam care about the whole crew, Sammy gave 8 cases of signed Cabo Wabo to them and promised one way or another that they would work together againl I am in a hurry right now so I will try and put down more later. The only good things that was said the whole night was by Sammy "if the funker goes into treatment for about 4 months then we can talk!!" Outside of the boys in my opinion its done!"

    I think that there is a followup thread to this where 9of10scale says that he may have been a little harsh and that Eddie has to make some tough decisions and that they may all work together again. Correct me if I am wrong.
