    Default Anyone remember the last press confrence ('98)?

    I remember they took questions from callers and they were playing tracks from the upcoming "3" album on the radio. I seem to recall Ed getting defensive with someone in the audience. He was raggin on Sam and/or Dave not being a team player or some shit. And someone in the audience was like "aaawh, pleeease" or something to that effect, and Ed snapped back "aah WHAT?" "It's true!!!" That was pretty much when I realised it was becoming a trainwrek.

    That said I'd be really surprised if they actually did a press confrence. They know the Mikey questions are coming. Does anyone else remember this? Maybe even audio?

    They will probably have some prepared statements. Still, a press conference will leave them wide open to just about anything. If they are truly at peace with themselves, their decisions and their past, present and future, no worries.

    But we know better...!

    Regardless I'm rootin' for 'em all...this still has the potential to be awesome.

    Maybe they don't take any questions ? They just announce what they are doing, and say they are not taking questions at this time.

    Then why have a press conference, just release a statement.

    They have to take questions and possibly play a little bit. Should be interesting.

    dont remember the press conf, but i do remember the MTV special on "3" done at eds house with all the members. I remeber Ed did 90% of the talking and saying it was magic with Gary and this was the final version of VH and all. Gary was very polite and grateful about everything and not fake at all. It was all about ED and his new found inspiration and a new beginning. The should have called it Ed, Al and the other 2 guys we'll push around and do whatever we say.

    Ed was just a total jackass during that interview. All self absorbed with himself. That was the day I really started to not like him as much. Never really saw that side of him before. Like he was stating that it was his band now and his way.

    Yep 1998 was really the beginning of the end of Ed for me as a person. He just became a dick.

    That whole era of Van Halen was weird. I mean Ed that is. Dude was on a totally different planet in all of his interviews. I don't think it was drinking, because he was always normal even when reading his old interviews from the past or watching them. But that VH 3 tour interview phase was just plain weird. He was never quite right after that. In my opinion. Out.

    I think the failue of III really put Ed in some state of depression, that maybe and hopefully he is now out of.

    Hopefully Ed and Dave's pyshologists will help them through this press conference.

    "Remember Dave, don't mention anything about Eddie's hip. Keep talking about we, not I."

    "Ed, Dave is a showman, he is trying to entertain. Do not think he believes everything he says during the conference. Let it go in through one ear, out through the other. "
    Right here I say....

    I remember an interview with Eddie in a guitar magazine during that time. Ed was all "one with the Universe" and shit. He had some personal Tarot card chick that was telling him that he was a god or something...i dunno, i do remember reading and saying what the fuck. When did this guy go from being a punk kid who wanted to rock to becoming so self righteous and all knowing? Wasn't long after that life kicked him STRAIGHT in the balls. Maybe all these last years has made him humble again..lol..right. Maybe Mikey's tarot card wasn't flipped over in the last seance.
    I'm rambling...still love ya Ed..lol
