    Very Surprising

    I remember reading somewhere that Eddie and Diamond Dave were doing coke the day of Eddie and Vals wedding. I was very surprised because I didnt expect Ed to do coke I thought he just drank and smoked (maybe pot). As for Dave I knew hes been around the drugs and shit. But ya just wanted to start my own thread a wink.

    that doesn't surprise me. Everyone did coke back then. I'm sure Eddie was on something when he came up with stuff like "Eruption". There was the rumor that he overdosed on coke around the time of VH II. And I remember people talking that you could see traces of lines under his nose in their videos- of course these are rumors. From reading early interviews, I think Eddie stated that he smoked pot and tripped sometimes, but I don't know about anything else for a fact. Anyone???

    Everyone one of them has done everything you can possibly do as a rock star at one time or another. They weren't called the Ultimate Party Band for nuthin'.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Edward has said in interviews he's done about everything but he's never tried heroin. He was afraid he would like it.

    You probably read is Dave's autobiography about the drug use on the day of Ed's wedding.

    I also believe that Ed admitted some drug use in the Rolling Stone cover story interview of him around the time of the release of Balance.

    Default eddie + coke

    I have a certain cousin of questionable repute who supplied and shared with eddie during the monster's of rock Pittsburgh stop. But, i mean, the early eighties and coke was the new pot.

    There's a reason Eddie acts a bit wacked out these days. It's called years of hard drug abuse. You can't snort boatloads of Cocaine, drink booze all day, smoke cigarettes by the carton, and expect to not feel any side effects as you age. The guy has done horrific damage to his body and mind. Combined with a few years of chemo therapy, radiation, etc., it's no wonder he looks and acts like the cript keeper. It's a shame to see what he or anyone with his lifestyle turns into. Ozzy is another example......

    i remember reading an interveiw (as some of you other probably have read the same one) where eddie mentions that there were lines of coke spread out on the mixing board during the recording of vh2 and there were litterally bowls of it sitting on the tables in the studio.

    And I believe he added that it wasn't all necessarily the band's dope.

    Yeah, but I bet both of them have had a shit load of fun as well..
    Perhaps they wouldn't have come up with such great music otherwise !?
    Sadly drugs seems to have some positive impact on creativity, just look at John Lennon.

    I didn't know Eddie was a snorter..
    Did Valerie made him change his mind or did he continue using it in the 90's to?
