    Default Serious issues put this VH tour in jeopardy, mark my words!

    Ok, flame away at will. I don't care. I haven't posted here much but because admittedly I can't stand Ed for what he has done to this band (yes Ed....not Dave or anyone else). But I will tell what is happening to a once great band who that is in NO condition to tour because of one guy.

    VH rehearsals are starting to deteriorate rapidly due to Ed's resumption of drinking. This guy loves his wine and he has jumped back on the vino bandwagon in full force. There have been multiple firings in terms of tour staff because of Ed and he is verbally abusive to just about everyone (which isn't surprising because I had several myself with him in my time around the band).

    Dave is VERY concerned about this and I know has expressed it to management.

    That's it. The same old story with him. His drinking destroyed a once great talent and a once friendly guy.

    Ed doesn't need a tour or even music...he needs serious therapy and I hate Alex for what he is not doing to save his brother!

    Bottom line: Seem them early (if the tour even happens at all).

    If this is all true, don't hate Alex or anyone else. If an alcoholic is going to drink, he's going to drink and nothing anyone can do or say will stop him.

    Ed has a phone, Ed knows what to do to get help. He's a big boy.

    Anything is possible I guess but can he really be that stupid???? If this tour goes down in flames because of more BS from Ed the band will look like an even bigger joke then their already perceived to be. I didn't expect 1 month of rehab to cure the guy but with his sons involvement I did expect him to be on his best behaviour during the tour. I guess we will wait and see how things play out.

    While it seems to be believable based on past history it still seems a little fishy because of the Wolfgang/Valerie connection. I would imagine Val is on top of this shit, probably walks right up on Ed to get a wiff then ok's the boy to play. No way does Val let the fat kid out of her site on this deal.

    So maybe if I got some clarification as to where Val is on this then I might by it.

    Anybody who thought that Ed was "cured" was probably fooling themselves. I'm sure there are still some bumps, but hopefully for his sake, he can hold it together and beat this thing in the long run.

    State your sources, friend, otherwise you are speculating.

    Ask a recovering alcoholic if they are ever cured, they will tell you no, it's a day to day fight.

    Glad the Toronto shows are early on in the tour.

    Agreed. I know that a lot around here think he's all better now because he got his teeth whitened, a new haircut and a stop at a celeb rehab but despite what many around here think, Ed is NOT GOD.

    Hope this report isn't true but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it was. His health is far more important than a stupid tour.

    Yep!


    If it is true, it's Ed's personal buisness and his alone. Why can't people just leave it at that? I wish him all the happiness and health in the world!



    Just enjoy and be thankful for all the great music he's given to us!
