    Default Ed's Teeth

    First, let me preface this by saying that I am a huge VH fan.

    However, earlier this year, while at the Salt Lake concert, my wife noticed Ed's teeth (or lack of). His mouth appeared to be an unnatural-looking black hole. After being tipped off to this, I noticed the same thing at the subsequent three shows around the country I went to.

    Have they simply rotted out of his mouth (too many cigs and alcohol)? Does he occasionally wear dentures? The reason I ask this, is that over the weekend we were in Cabo (what a place!) and there was some really cool VH memorablia at Cabo Wabo. Again, in one of the photos my wife noticed that Ed seemed to be wearing dentures.

    Not really all that important in the grand scheme of things, but there isn't much else to talk about these days from the VH camp. --Let's hope they change that soon!!!

    Also, FYI- I am a new poster here, but have been visiting the site for a couple of years now, and look forward to communicating with fellow VH fans.

    --Also, if it is posible, I actually like Sammy and Dave equally well!!!

    Yes Ed could use some work in the dental area no doubt. Looks worse as he's gotten older. If he's wearing dentures, well good, probably looks a lot better.

    I think Ed still has his teeth, but not all of them. From what I have heard, he had the caps removed off his teeth not too long ago. He has also always had a mouth shape that makes it hard to see his teeth unless he gives a huge smile, so those two factors probably make it look like he has no teeth. Not to say that he hasn't lost some, though, and he may have dentures for all I know.

    There was a guy at the local Guitar Center who told me that he was one of the locals they hire to help roadie in Myrtle Beach on the III tour. He told me that Ed accidentally went on state in Myrtle on that tour w/o a partial he normally wears and didn't realize it until he had to sing. I'm not saying I believe this, but he did claim to see it first hand.

    I've seen many shots of Ed's teeth since the mid-eighties. Ed seems to have a frown shaped upper jaw as opposed to a "normal" smile shaped upper jaw. look at it as an upside down half circle, if you will. So when he opens his mouth, he looks toothless. I've noticed this for over twenty years. I just think it's his bone structure. But why speculate? Just teeth. Are we not here because of his band and his playing? Fuck his teeth. Seen Ginger Baker, or Waddy Wachtel? I have. Up close. Ed's teeth are fine.

    Dental crowns (also sometimes referred to as "dental caps" or "tooth caps") were removed from Eddie's front teeth.

    You know it's a slow day in Van Halen-land when we are discussing Eddie's teeth. I must admit, it's an interesting thread.

    Someone who was a 5 star holder that talked to Ed at the pre show said he told them when they took part of his tongue, some of his teeth had to go.
