    if eddie is so tight about everyone elses stuff, you can imagine how bad he must have freaked out when the rest of them hassled his guitar company changing, and him striping everything and those cheap charvels they are selling.

    i bet he lost it hypocrite style.

    I kinda been thinkin bout the whole endorsing thing with Ed gettin all legal and restricting on what's allowed/not allowed at VH concerts etc. At first I thought he's just bein a prick and may be somewhat jealous of Sam and his Tequila and Mike's Hotsause, but I'm thinkin this isn't the case. Ed does what kind of endorsing? Most if not all I've seen have been directly music related, which is what he's all about, no? The D-tuna...the guitars....the amps etc. What Sam and Mike are doin is using the music to sell thier unrelated to music wares. Is that wrong?....dunno. Guess it all depends on who ya are. For Ed, it's a no-no cause it's usin the music for the wrong reasons. Kinda reminds ya that Ed is a real musician............that likes to drink alot !

    what? well if eddie freaks out on mikey and sam for selling their products right, and he has this large ego problem, i bet he freaking flipped out when anyone else asked him what the deal was with all these guitar companies, and anything associated with eddie for sale. i thought it was clear before...

    Don't forget milk. Or baseball caps. Or pewter necklaces. Or leather wristbands, keychains, pins, buttons, can koozies, dog tags, clothing, zippos, and cameras. Oh, and fifty dollar guitar picks made for ten cents apiece.

    If it's striped, it must be music-related.

    I get Eddie on this one...

    I agree with Ed on this. WTF has Cabo Wabo Have to do with VH. It's not owned by the band anymore,only Sam I Am and ironicly was a problem amongst many of Sam quitting the band. As for the Hot Sauce, WTF?

    Ed sells music related products of which were not posted in arenas or talked about; "Waitress, bring me a new striped phase 90"

    Here is proof of what I'm saying. ED said nothing when Sam endorsed Washburn guitars or Crate amps which were specific to Sam I Am.

    I have seen Mikey in many, many signature Bass guitars, strings blah, blah ads and Ed didn't say shit.

    Why should you promote something like hot sauce or tekillya ( I call it that) on the VH dime? Ed and Al weren't and let's not forget the band is VAN FUCKIN HALEN not Van Anthony or Van Hagar to some peoples displeasure.

    Plus finally one more thing. There is no band. Mike is a hired hand on the last tour as he pointed out and Sammy did not "rejoin" against popular belief. He essentially agreed to the reunion tour per contract through Irving Azoff nothing past that obviously! So why shouldn't a Band with 2 brothers who by the way write all the music as we know from Mike's interview and let's face it my first grader could have penned the lyrics on those 3 new ones. So I agree whole heartedly there should have been some stipulations as set by the Van Halen brothers. If Sam and Mike were so put out by it, don't sign the contract and don't do the fucking tour. Sour Grapes!

    Besides Sam I Am has made many, many, many millions off his shitty tekillya
    and old Mikey is part owner of Disney World. WTF are they hurtin over a few bucks for on these 2 bottles of crap.

    Now, don't get me wrong Mike, I love ya. I hope if the band ever hits the launch sequence again you are on board. But I'm gonna have to say I hope $am will not be suiting up. I'm sick of all his shit, running mouth and Jimmy Buffet act. And my God that new song is fucking horrible and anybody that likes it "sucks cock by choice" Deadwood quote!

    I guess Pepsi and Nissan were music related too? Edward himself said that he might as well make money from the endorsement since they could use the music without VH playing it and they wouldn't get paid much of anything.

    Note to Edward:

    I love you Edward and always will but that doesn't mean you are always right and this stinks of sour grapes. You were "forced" by Sammy to have Mikey back for the reunion. You gave in but made Mikey take a pay cut. Seeing that he might benefit with a tie in of the hot sauce, you made sure that was limited as much as you could as well. Man, let it go. You might find some peace in your life without all the anger. You don't want to leave this world with regrets and/or bad feelings with those who have meant so much in your life.

    I guess its the endorsements that Mikey and Sam used the band's fame to sell a side lined business that took thier focus away from the band/music in some degree is what was the problem for Ed. I can honestly understand his point there. If I ran a business or project together with someone, and they used that business to promote another of thier own on the side, I'd soon realize that my partner isn't solely focused on the initial idea by being distracted by a second. Is it wrong for Ed to expect them not do expand and do something other than VH? Yeah I guess you could see it as a control freak kinda thing, but we all know what Ed was all about from the start. He's a musical genious and I can see it being his driving force. Sammy has a more business/have fun with it attitude and that's way kewl.

    Is Ed to serious with the music? Ya maybe, but that's what makes him great musically. Is he a business man? Not from what I've seen so far. I guess it all comes down to choices and Dave, Sam and Mikey made thier's and ya, it wasn't to Ed's liking. Ed's doin his thing and really hasn't been complaining, he still makes his music and ya it sucks we as fans don't get to hear it. That part kinda ticks me off, but i'm sure we haven't heard the last of EVH !

    Each member of this band had thier own hand in it's demise, and up until now Mikey's had the least involvement in that and that's why I repected him alot. We all knew Mikey was the most solid member of VH, no whining and fuckin around, and I just don't see what he had to gain by this. Was it to help Sam's arguement and put more blame on ED?....dunno. This last interview was kinda like a nail on the band's coffin. I'm hope'n it has the opposite affect, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I side with you. It is my opinion Sam's tequila and Mike's hot sauce should be promoted outside of the VH music world.
