    Default Eddies real age!!!!

    I Dont think Eddie knows where he is. Does he even know its 2007? In a interview in metal edge in 93, Eddie said he was 38, and in a interview in classic rock in 2004 he said he was 47 and Alex was 51, surely they ar'nt 4 years apart!!!! I know he was born in 1955 which makes him 52, please tell me if I'm right.

    All the confusion stems from the entire band lying about their age in the early years to attract younger girls....or something like that.

    But if you want to blame Eddie for that too....knock yourself out !

    I remember that, Ed said it was Dave's idea to do that. from a '96 article, "...I should've known when Roth said, "Let's say we're two years younger than we really are." And I'd say, "Why? I'm only 22. What's the difference?" That still causes problems for me to this day. I'm 41, and people think I'm 39. ..."

    Nope...that one is actually on George ! Although I'm sure he blames Ed for it as well, back when they were doing mountains of blow together.

    For many years I thought Ed was born in 1957 and Al in 1955. When I was a kid I had a paperback Van Halen book that was sort of a bio on the band. In that book it gives those years as the years they were born. Also last week when it was his birthday the dj on the radio also said that it was Eddies 50th birthday. So which is it.

    When Al Gore invented the internet, he also cause a time shift which caused Eddie's age to go back 2 years in the late sixties. When Van Halen released "Balance" in '95, everything went back to normal.

    Oh shit he caused the Bears to lose too? I knew he was responsible for OSU pulling a Michigan against Florida but did not know he actually fixed NFL games too.

    I have heard Janet Jackson's nipple gate was on Ed along with Britney not wearing her panties.

    As I remember.. Dave did not want any of the group to be married as well .. ... Less female fans I guess.
