    Default No Nirvana for Eddie

    I am not sure if this has been posted earlier but i just ran across this blurb about Eddie making a fool of himself at a Nirvana concert.
    If this is true it is very sad.

    SMEAR'S VAN HALEN HORROR

    Guitarist PAT SMEAR was horrified when his hero EDDIE VAN HALEN appeared in a drunken stupor backstage at one of NIRVANA'S gigs - as the ageing rocker made a total fool of himself.

    Smear, who made his name with punk rockers THE GERMS, was dumbstruck when the JUMP rocker drunkenly dropped to his knees and begged KURT COBAIN to let him join the SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT rockers on stage for a number.

    After being refused, Van Halen lost even more of his dignity when he turned to Smear and demanding to play on "the Mexican's guitar" - Smear is part Cherokee and part black.

    Smear says, "He was just being a freak. Like all of us, he got too f**ked up in public once and embarrassed himself."

    This story has been going around for years. I first heard it from a guy who heard it from a guitar tech that was supposedly there That version of the story involved Cobain drilling thru a guitar and holding it up in the air and having it spin while Eddie looked on in horror.

    Default Eddie and Smears

    I read the article at www.contactmusic.com
    In the search type in Smears Van Halen and it will come up. The other story is different as it talks about Cobain being a prick to Eddie.

    yeah! They suck! Nirvana sucks!! Thats why Eddie showed up at THEIR concert and wanted to jam.........its pathetic that Eddie would even try to appeal to that audience and pathetic that Nirvana would slight another musician of that caliber. the power of alcohol fucks things up again.

    I have also heard about this. I was told that there was a video of it somewhere and Cobain was trying to talk to somebody with the camera and Eddie was drunk and being, well, drunk. But I don't know.

    I find this extremely hard to believe that this is true seeing how Cobain died in 94 and any time before this, Van Halen was still kicking major ass. Being that Ive read shit about Dave and Sam saying Ed has an ego(firstly, Dave saying ed has an ego is like Ted Kennedy saying Ed has a drinking problem, secondly if i was that good, id have an ego too) I highly doubt he would be begging some talentless power chord garage band to let him play on stage. Not buying it...
    WHOAOH! Hey you! Who said that? Baby how you been?

    I just sent an email to Pat - let's see what he has to say about it...

    whats wrong... a drunk eddie trying to impove on that fuckin noise would be a good thing. He could only help.

    a drunk rock star back stage, who woulda thunk, just more proof that idiots like cobain killed rock music.

    I doubt that Eddie would beg Kurt Cobain for anything.

    Nirvana is trash.

    Big deal. Maybe it did happen. None of you guys have done anything crazy or stupid when you've been hammered.I know I have.
