    Lukather tired of being asked about Ed

    From www.melodicrock.com:

    Lukather: "Just because I'm friends with Eddie Van Halen doesn't mean I know everything about his fucking life. People are always asking about him. He's my bro man, him and Alex.
    I don't know what they are up to. I don't even want to know.
    When Ed comes by the house or when Al and I do out for dinner, we don't talk about that."

    www.melodicrock.com: "I was going to bring this up actually. You do get asked about Ed all the time as he doesn't do a lot of talking for himself. How do you feel being Eddie's unofficial spokesman?"

    Lukather: "If Eddie doesn't speak for himself, why should I speak for him?
    I am not his spokesman and if he doesn't want to talk, why do you think I will talk for him?
    He's my friend. He comes by the house we hang….my son loves the music.
    Why can't we all be friends?
    We all came from the same era, why is it so strange to believe we aren't all friends?"

    That would be nice but Ed is not obligated to say anything.
    I don't think anything is going on with the band anyway.

    The only thing that really matters here is that Eddie is drinking way too much and still smoking. This guy is only going to run into more health problems along the way. It's sad that he"quit" drinking in 1994, because at this point in his life he's very unlikely to try again. It doesn't even matter about the music right now, the man just needs some help and guidance.

    BTW, Steve shouldn't have to answer for Ed either, that's for Ed to do.

    In a interview in 1995 in rolling stone magazine he said he came home shit faced at 8am and his son was asking what was wrong with him. Ed said that was one of the reason's he wanted to quit drinking. I think the only way he will quit drinking again is if his son makes a impact on it some how. I know how it is with a family member that is a drunk. I had a grandmother that drank liqor like a fish and everyone tried to get her to stop. She died of a bad liver. I just hope that ed does clean his life up and not for me cause i am a van halen fan but for himself and his family.

    For our purposes (here on this board), this is the main point. There's really nothing to tell, because there's absolutely NOTHING going on with the band.

    He's not...believe me. Not wanting to get off topic....Luke's intense, but ultimately he just speaks from the heart and whatever is on his mind is what comes out in any given interview.
    A very humble and friendly guy - an open book so to speak.

    Too bad Edward's not. But then he wouldn't be Edward if he was.

    I don't blame him for not wanting to say anything. What's to say?

    Altho it would be nice to know if VH is officially done. Officially, not speculatively.

    I disagree - surely any band that respects its fans is obliged to tell us something - its Ed's band therefore the onus is on him - if it's over then say it!!!!!

    We can only hope that because it would be so easy to say it's over yet they do not, it means somewhere, somehow down the road, Edward wants to put out more music. It leaves the door open. At least that's what I continue to think but then again, maybe they truly don't give a darn if we know what VH or Edward's future plans hold. If he says it's over, people would ask if he's coming out of retirement like so many have done before him.

    I can imagine that Steve Lukather would be slightly miffed that people keeping asking him about Ed. But really, it is a sign of great love that the people still have for Ed, and really, it wouldn't be too difficult for EVH to put a message on the website once a month saying how he's been, what he's been up to.

    He doesn't owe it to us, but it would be a nice courtesy.

    Steve Lukather is just pissed that nobody asks him when "Toto" is putting out a new album. Nobody asks him about the follow up to "Rosanna"
