    dam thats messed up,sounds a little iffy,that does'nt sound like ed i mean he does a couple charity things for the lapd.
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    maybe people shouldn't shot first and ask questions later. you might want to give the guy the benefit of the doubt until you find out if this is something he

    Maybe they're not a legit charity?

    Funny how their protest page uses the logos without permission too. They seem to have a bad habit of accidently doing that don't they?

    They portray it as if their entire world fell apart because they had to pull their listing, yet a volunteer relisted it? Considering how devastating it supposedly was to have to pull the auction, you would have throught it would have been the talk of the office.

    Something smells bad there me thinks...

    I remember back in the 90's some asshole promised a bunch of sick kids at a hospital that Eddie Van Halen was going to visit them. The kids got all excited but the person was bulshitting them. Eddie heard about this and went and visited them. It was a news story on TV which showed Eddie showing up and spending time and taking pictures with the kids. Eddie takes a lot of crap. Not all of it is deserved.
    And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Genesis 21:17

    seems like it is a legal or business/money thing. cant judge, dont know the woman and i certainly do not know eddie. ed probably wouldnt do that knowing his charitable past and how good he is with fans.
    so who knows! tis a mystery! end of story

    By all accounts over the years, Eddie has been very charitable. I doubt he is suddenly not. Especially when it comes to children with special needs, he is not THAT fucked up IMO.

    There has to be another side to this story thats not being reported. But the bad part of any story is always looked at first.

    - First - I'm sure Eddie isn't patroling ebay looking to shut people down.

    - Second - His attorneys are paid to stop copyright/trademark infringment.

    - Third - Did you approach ELVH BEFORE the auction and ask for help, or did you just start bitching about it here? Ed has a track record of helping charities.

    - Fourth - Good luck on your auction... I hope it gets up and running, if it is, in fact, for kids with Downs.

    I don't know who you are, and how true any of this is...and I don't care. I'm removing your URL, I don't this site in any part of this. And there's already a thread on this.
