    Default Will Ed go see Cream jam in England?

    I would think this might be as positive of a scene as Ed could wish for, Clapton, Baker and Bruce tearing it up live in 2005. You know these cats are gonna take it to the best place yet, and Ed's gotta be there! I know he's still a fan of those jams deep down, and seeing them do it again, might just light that fire inside Ed that no record company, tour promoter, lead singer, or disgruntled group of fans, could put out!

    I can wait for new Van Halen, so I hope and pray, Ed takes time out from the studio to go and be a part of this, even if just as a fan! Even great guitar players have to recharge the batteries from time to time.

    And what if, just what if, Ed got to go up there and take a turn or two with a band he has spoken highly of so many times. I can't imagine being there seeing the Cream, let alone, EVH jamming a tune with them. I hope Ed goes over there, and I hope and pray something very special happens. Mr. Clapton might just be the right tool for the job!

    And underneath the arch, it turned into a march,
    and there He found a spark to set this fucker off!

    We are down the road! I Can Dig It! Can You?

    Interesting thought...

    I would think Ed would absolutely be there! Knowing that he and Alex were so heavily influenced by Clapton and Baker, it would be a shame for them not to attend. I personally would not like to see Ed do any sort of jam with Cream. Those few shows they're doing belong to them and the legacy of the band. He can jam with Clapton anytime...

    I think that going to England would require being sober enough to get on a plane, and I'm not sure that EVH is willing to put down the bottle for that long at this point.

    No chance this will happen. If they played in LA then MAYBE but no chance London. IMHO.

    That's what Ed's probably thinking at this point, since he most likely isn't sober.

    Hasn't Clapton done nothing but talk shit about Eddie and Van Halen for nearly 30 years in all the magizines? I know that Clapton is Eddie's first guitar hero. But, if Clapton has talked shit about Eddie, then I'm sure Eddie is the last person Clapton wants to see at his reunion shows.

    Sad but true.

    If Eddie would happen to go. He would have to just be a common fan and not demand to go backstage or anything.

    This is Clapton's night.

    Yep, but let's not forget Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker -- without them, it'd be just another Clapton show. Perhaps one of them likes Ed.

    I've never seen a quote from Clapton where he has said a word about EVH, good or bad. Maybe I just missed it?

    I remember about 20 years ago reading an interview with Clapton where he was asked who he thought the best newer guitarists were. Clapton said Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughn. Clapton was then asked specifically about Ed and replied that he didn't think much of "playing fast".

    Clapton doesn't like playing fast? I've heard Stevie play extremely fast.
