    Default Eddie live in '04

    Okay, I'm just gonna' wing this. I saw a show last year from row 2 right in front of Ed and I swear to God...sometimes it looked like the man was not playing his guitar when the music was coming out. It was the Auburn hills show...(saw four other shows)..and I never noticed it at the other shows but I was not either close enough, or on his side of the stage to really pay attention. Look, maybe it was just me, maybe I had a few...but as the concert was ending I was exiting and I heard another guy speaking the exact same sentiments to a buddy of his, he was calling it a Milli Vanilli situation, I don't think I would go that far, but I saw what I saw!!! I personally don't know how they could even pull this off....unless he was just faking the whole thing...'cuz sometimes he looked like he was right on, but other times....and I can be a blind bastard at times...it looked like he was into the whole experience. I love Ed, but he did seem pretty trashed that night, is it possible his guitar tech was covering for him in certain areas...could that even be done?? I was just wondering if anyone else saw any of this last year???

    Don't want it to...really... didn't mean it to!! And if that is the case then mods, close it right now. I am a EVH FANATIC, but I saw what I saw. If it is not okay for this site, then please close it now!!

    Yes, that's exactly what it was 'cause Eddie is a robot and they had some technical problems last year.

    *Note... His guitar tech was also the one drinking the wine during the shows.

    Maybe it was the delay/echo that got you caught off guard...

    IF he was playing over audio, it would be MUCH more difficult to do that rather than playing normally. ESPECIALLY if you were as smashed as Eddie was during the shows.

    You have my doubts.

    I saw the same thing at the show I was at. I figured it was because of sound bounce from the back of the arena. I was a 5 star and saw Ed warm up at sound check. There is NO reason to have someone else play for him.

    I believe that you thought you saw it, but it would be impossible for anyone to pull that off.

    Acts lip sync everyday. Why would 'finger sync' be so beyond belief? I was at the Auburn Hills show and given how piss poor the guitar playing was I have a hard time believing it was pre-recorded.

    Although most of the performances I saw/heard didn't sound like the Eddie I remember...

    ...unfortunately, it WAS Eddie playing and not his tech.

    Have we sunk this low?

    Eddie not playing Eddie during his own show's?

    I was pretty close for the San Diego show, Ed played the entire thing. I have also (like a lot of other's on this site) seen just about all of the boot video's from the last tour, Ed played all of those as well.

    Your either wrong or a jackass.

    And by the way, Ed and the band was the shit for San Diego, best I have ever seen, and I have been to every tour since 5150. On some of the early boots he did sound like shit, but not when I caught them in person.

    Well, I certainly could be wrong and, yeah I definetly might be a Jackass. ..I've certainly been called worse! Lets get something straight though, I never said he sounded terrible. I saw five shows last year and enjoyed the piss outta' all of em. The AH show was the only one I noticed this at. Anyway, didn't mean to ruffle any feathers, I just thought what I saw was unusual and obviously a few others noticed it also. Regardless of if this took place or not, Ed is still the Man.

    Yes it is the echo of the sound bouncing of the walls of the arena.

    I came off a little angry on my post, sorry about that man.

    I was trying to say that your either wrong or your just trying to start some crap, in that case you would then be a jackass (I honestly didn't think you were just strarting something).

    And I was actually responding to the other dudes that said because Ed sounded so terrible it had to be live, I know he did sound pretty rough early on, but not when he got to the West coast.

    Shamefull! down right shamefull. Ed fucked himself on the 2004 tour. I don't know what happened to the guy but I was totally dissapointed in Ed. I don't want him to go out like that.
