    Default Dave claims striped guitar was his idea

    This morning on Roth's radio show he claimed that it was his idea to stripe Eddie's guitar. He said that he stole the idea from the bass player in The Clash. He also said that the spray paint used was his and that Eddie didn't build that first guitar. His guitar tech did (can't remember his name) and that they had a name for the guitar that was other than Frankenstrat. It all went by so quick that I don't remember what the name was.

    Did anyone else hear that this morning or of Roth's claims before?

    Absolutely never heard of that! How come Ed's guitar TECH could have build his first guitar as Ed built it before they were signed? Or did Ed already have a guitar tech at that point in their amateur career? Seems dubious.
    I mean come on "the paint can was his"...does he want Ed to pay him back for it?
    It's not by appropriating everything Ed did that Dave'll be able to hope for a reunion. This is just childish and useless.

    Now think about this, living with that ego day after day after day in close quarters on the road. And some may wonder why Edward would have reservations about getting back together with Roth.

    Even if he did make an offhand comment, "Hey Eddie, check out the Clash's guitar. How cool would that look on yours?", after this many years and all the different levels Edward has taken it past the original, how do you claim credit. Isn't that sort of what Gene Simmons does, claim credit for everything he has ever come in contact?

    I would not read too much into this seemingly off-handed remark. Look, frankly age does funny things to one's perspective, as well as memory (believe me, I speak from experiance ...I remember walking 5 miles to school in New Jersey, through the snow, up-hill both ways ).

    It's one thing to say stuff in a bar, quite another over airwaves when broadcasting...hell, it's the fellow's first week.

    I say cut him some slack...it's only a radio show folks.

    You're right Craig. I guess I wish he would just think a little before saying something like that, you know, being a bit biased about Edward. Especially if we can ever hope for a reunion.

    Well saying that he came up with the guitar was not as bad as what he said later.

    Basically said Eddie is doing crystal meth and that is the reason why they have not done a reunion. Lost out about 500 million dollars because of it.

    Wow. I must have missed that part. I only listened for about 15 minutes today. Unreal.

    I wonder if he stole the idea of putting iced tea in his Jack Daniels bottle from the Clash also!
