    Default Is Dave trying to help Ed?

    I've listened to a lot of Dave's show, and on at least two occasions, he's basically called Ed a drug addict.
    At first, I was kinda pissed because I thought it was pretty mean spirited on Dave's part, but then I wondered if he was actually trying to help Ed with some form of intervention.
    When Dave and Alex spoke, maybe Alex gave Dave his "blessing" to confront Ed via the airwaves, since nothing else has worked.

    Then again, this could just be a dumb theory, and I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about.

    i was wondering the exact same thing this morening. It may be that AS IRonic as it sounds, Dave may be the only one who can get Ed to ehlp himself.
    Sound carazy? maybe. But DLR, if u listen to him, is quite intelligent and extremely positive. He believes in bettering self in many ways.

    He is certaionly on the same level,socially as ed, so why not?

    No I think you may have a point - why say a reunion is inevitable and then refer to Ed's drugs habit unless you've kind of ok'd it first? It just doesn't make sense - only time will tell I suppose but remember this is Van Halen so anything is possible!!!!!!!!!

    Wouldn't that be something. Dave helps Ed clean up and they become best buddies again. I can see the interviews now. "We're like brothers or soul mates" "This guy doesn't suffer from LSD" If it could happen and we all know in the world of VH anything is possible than more power to him. I would love there to be a roth reunion with VH, and that's IT, no more reunions with anyone. Stick with the same 4 guys and tour until you can't tour anymore.

    I didn't believe Sam was trying to "help" Ed last year, and I don't believe it with Dave either. I think both have tried to deflect the balme, maybe rightfully so, for what has become of VH. I also think both are savvy enough to know that a little p.r. could help their outside ventures. I'm sure too that there's just a ton of frustration coming out too. We already heard how much money Dave believes Ed has cost the group, and Sam may share similar feelings.

    Most importantly, whether it was the intent or not, I doubt either said anything that resulted/will result in helping Ed.

    As much as I WANT to believe Sam and Dave are trying to help the situation, I think you nailed it with that post.

    I think it has nothing to do with trying to clean Ed up.

    He has his number and knows where he lives. Why would going on the air and confronting him be better than stopping by 5150?

    I think Dave could be more inclined to be bitter towards Ed (if he is on meth) because he lost out on millions, a Rock Hall Induction and now has to wake up at 4:00am every day to do a show that probably will be cancelled within a year.

    I also think he wants Ed to call in and what better way than to make accusations about him.

    Sammy did it in the press and then Ed talks to the Two Dorks.

    It worked before so Dave thinks it may work again.

    I doubt it's an intent. It's just an offhand slag, much like Sam did. One thing those two frontmen share is an inherent ability not to know when to shut the fuck up. Although in a heads-up showdown, I'm gonna give the gold to Dave.

    A little humility and pride-swallowing mighta gone a long way in 85...and 96...and 2000...and 2006...and so on, and so forth.

    Does Ed do drugs?

    I know at the L.A. Show on the 2004 Tour Ed did smoke a Joint in front of the crowd. Which everyone went crazy! Than he started to play his solo.

    I'm pretty sure Ed doesn't give a fuck about Dave's radio show...and I'm pretty positive you can't help Ed out over the airwaves...

    Sammy tried to help
    Big Al tried to help
    Mikey tried to help

    and most important of them all Valerie tried to help then finally gave up, I think Ed is a lost cause folks and it is upsetting because I'm a huge fan of Past, Present and Future Van Halen and I grew up idolizing Ed and Van Halen. His personality really transformed after OU812....really depressing!!

    I care about Ed's health as I'm sure do many others. Without Eddie Van Halen, you, and I, would have never even heard of David Lee Roth.

    Period.

    Unfortunately the only one that help ed is ed himself, I would think that Dave would be the last one that ed would listen too.

    I have been a huge fan of vh for a long time, but unfortunately I think that people have their hopes up for nothing, I think vh is probably most likely over.
