    EVH and Drinking

    This may or may not have been talked about already...for awhile there I wasnt around much...
    to the point...Except for maybe on the balance tour...EVH has always been drinking....and he was always smiling, always goofy grinned, good time Eddie...
    Always played every note to perfection, or close to it...always had a great time and interacted well with whoever was on stage with him...
    Until 2004....
    I saw them here in Spokane....Ive heard boots..... Eds solo was a sorry shell of what it used to be...he looked and sounded like someone who was just sitting on his bed noodling around on the guitar and then looked up and noticed that he was on stage... and then for awhile he was ok...
    And like Sammy said...sometimes he didnt even recognize the songs....
    At times Ed looked surly...withdrawn....in his own little world....
    I , for months now , have been thinking that Ed is into something worse than alchohol....DLR I know...brought up meth....
    Could be heroin??? I dont know....
    If this is the case....AL has to know....and if that is so....I wonder if hes tried to intervene....
    I worry for EVH....
    I miss the good old, goofy grinned, thumbs up , best damn guitarist in the world....
    Saying my prayers for you ED
    Get better
    Soon

    Its probably enamal fumes from painting guitars. Ed please stop painting guitars.

    There are times when Edward looked and performed completely normal. He looks like he needs food and water. Edtheopian.

    Edward Van Halen was/is in sorry shape. I believe the problem was that he was simply put, DRUNK OFF HIS FUCKING ASS! I heard he even blacked out quite a few times & didn't know where he was. It's a shame, but, he's an alcoholic, & he desperately needs help. He won't get help until HE is ready to, just like any alcoholic, and he hits what they call "ROCK BOTTOM" !!! Rock bottom is different for everyone though, and some NEVER make it back. I hope he does, Ed Van Halen has been such an insperation in my life since I was about 13. So was the rest of the band, Dave & Sammy too. Their music touched my soul, made me crazy, humbled me, got me thru bad times, and pumped me up for good times. So I hope & pray that Ed finds himself again, & makes it back to where he should be, and if he happens to read this then he should know that there are thousands, maybe millions of people / fans, that really DO give a shit about him. He didn't JUST write hit music, he touched our lives! WE CAN NEVER THANK YOU ENOUGH!

    I just wached again to the EVH photos from the Oscar After Party,.. but IMHO, he didn't even look that bad.

    Yust my two cents.

    Ed was God, Ed is God, Ed will stay God.

    Give the man a break.. let him take the time to recover.. and sooner or later.. ARMBI

    He used to drink alot when he was younger...
    He sobered up for a few years...
    He went through cancer treatment...
    He lost his mother...
    He lost his wife...
    He started drinking again...
    He's older...
    He doesn't have anyone in his life that can objectively contradict him anymore...
    He can't cope with the chemicals and people like he used to(not that he ever was a people person)...
    His relationship w/ his son is the only important thing in his life...

    ...meaning he has created his own world that he resides in. It isn't the world WE want him in, but WE don't have a say in the matter.

    If he ever decides to step out of that world, I'll gladly accept him in any way, but right now all one can do is pop in a VH cd and be happy for what we got.

    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
