    without this degenerating into a continuation of the 'ed looks like a bum' thread, is there a possible reason for ed wearing the fingerless gloves? arthritis or discomfort or some such? or is just the crazy whim of a guy who can dress however he wants now?

    Probably to get people to ask why he's wearing those gloves.

    One time during the grunge period, I took a pair of my husband's red plaid boxers and wore them over black leggings with Doc Marten's, a Guns-n-Roses t-shirt, and my husband's blue plaid flannel shirt. I wore that to a boat show in Norwalk, CT and was quite a sight for that crowd! I thought I looked damn cool, but now I laugh at how I dressed up. It's a conscious choice to be different. Ed had a look going that day, there's no doubt about it. Oh, and I remember taking a razor to my jeans back then too. (Unlike my sister-in-law, who preferred to go out and pay $75 for a pair of Guess jeans that were all stylishly ripped up the same way.)
    Could this be magic?

    Maybe it's to deter him from somking. It might make it a pain to hold a smoke with puffy gloves on.

    I dont want to start a flame war here but he probably wears them because his hands are cold. Smoking and drinking both cause poor circulation which leads to cold hands and feet. I know this because my father used to wear big leather gloves in 80 degree weather. Ed probably cuts the fingers off so he can still play... and it just looks cooler...

    I think it might have to do with the handshaking thing. I've never tried to shake hands with someone I've met when they are wearing gloves, and after reading in one of the guitar mags a few years back about Ed not shaking hands at meet and greets, there's a slight chance this could have something to do with it, but it's only a guess.

    Yikes! Layne Staley took to wearing those gloves to disguise the fact that he was tapping the veins in his hands. I'm not insinuating that EVH is a heroin-addict, but it's still a mystery just the same! Maybe he just thinks he looks "cool"?
