    Default "I met VH" stories...

    I'm hearing all of this hate towards EVH and how he doesn't give a shit about fans. Can I please hear some examples of incidents proving this, please?

    Sure, pick an album. Even III was an honest effort (by Ed and GC), even if it didn't work. Even when critics panned it, they said at least Ed sounded 'fresh' on it.

    Before the door slams on this thread I'll say that most who have met him have had good experiences, including myself. So I doubt you'll get very many first hand accounts, everyone is judging his actions at this point since he's not saying anything.

    Even today on the radio the promoter for Live Nation said EVH is one of the nicest people he has ever met. The one time I met him he was cool. A little too nice to my wife but hey what the fuck, He's Eddie fuckin Van Halen!

    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.

    You'll get plenty of first hand accounts from people who bought tickets in The Rings for the last tour. After awhile, when everyone you come into contact with turns out to be a dick, or shits on you,( Mike, Dave, Sam et.al.) you may want to look in the mirror.

    I don't doubt for a second he used to be an all-fan-friendly guitar player of Van Halen the band at a certain period of time.

    Let's put it this way, how much a person can value his fans when he's so full of hatred towards his own (now former) bandmates? I can assure you both Mike and Sam are number one fans of band's music, does Ed's behaviour towards them qualify as an example?

    hummm

    Unless you know him personally we just guess and assume .I like his music and guitar style..But to say he's a jerk for not touring this year ( I prob will still happen ) Is not cool at all .I can see he has an alcohol problem..How many alcoholics do you know that say everything that makes sense???
    Why should edd then...The edd vanhalen we see today is not the guitar hero I once Idolized..I can tell you that....

    So what's the point of this thread to bash EVH? What we don't have enough other threads for that?

    I've met Ed 3 times (actually spoken to him), twice at those Meet and Greet things. He was very nice both times, and extremely nice in 1995. However I also saw him at the market once, and I said hello to him in passing and he said, "Hey how are you." That was it.

    We don't have a thread dedicated to bash EVH in the first place, no. We have one for Wolfie, in Mike's forum.
