    thats news to me and im pretty sure over the years i have never heard that before.

    there used to be a thread here where someone went through every song and gave really good accounts on what he thought everyone played on...I think it came out to Ed, al and Mike playing on FITH and BOTB and that was it, I don't remember it excactly but the guy knew what he was talking about, seemed like Mike didn't really play on anything according to him.

    I think we all know that a drum machine was used on Once, I could go into a big diatribe about what I thought of ed at the time....I know sometimes I come off as a Sam slappy but I used to be the biggest Ed fan in the world, I just lost alot of respect for him with III. He plays guitar, bass, drums, sings, produces, mixes and writes lyrics.....just too much. Same with BOBW, if Ed would have just played guitar and not tryed to play bass, co produce and mix the stuff it would have been alot better, IMO.

    Ed, threatened Alex with a swift kick to the cup if Al didn't let Ed play drums and so to keep Ed from kicking him in the cup as well as anyone else he let him play drums and every other instrument on the album plus vocals on a song.

    I recall reading Alex was going through a divorce at the time and was not in the studio all the time.

    The kick in the cup jokes are about as old as it gets in VH Land.

    That and "is there a full Oakland '81 show?" queries.

    And 'Will VH make into the RRHOF this year?" polls?

    And 'I heard VH will make a surprise appearance at the Grammys" rumors.

    And reunion rumors with any or all 3 singers.

    Oh yeah...and the Sam vs. Dave dealio.
