    Default Interesting Ed Item from the Tour

    Just spoke to my brother who knows a high ranking broker here who deals with Live Nation and he had an intersting fact about this tour. . The tour has basically been booked in 4 segments as opposed to all at once. The reason for this is because Eddie has to pass a drug/alcohol test every 2 weeks. I'm not sure if the tour is stopped if he ever fails a test but the promotors are testing him that often. I'm assuming the thought is that they can back out of this thing rather easily if Ed fails a test and not have to worry about cancelling dozens of dates.

    Um, that is hearsay, not fact. Difference. Would need a bit more context or evidence to qualify as a fact.

    so far this source has been bang on about the tour. But you're right it's not a fact - only what he was told by Live Nation. Don't see why Live Nation would lie about that though.

    What kind of test can they give you for alcohol? Unless you're drunk at the time of the test, wouldn't the alcohol be flushed out of your system in a day or so?

    in 2004 - I don't think there was a given second where Ed could have passed an alcohol test.

    I think they require the same test for Ozzy but in reverse.

    Are you kidding? I honestly believe that he couldn't have passed the hotel bar without venturing in.

    I would think that is quite extreme, however it would be encouraging. But that begs the question, will there be another leg after this one? If drunk-guy-observation-from-the-fourth-row is to believed, they won't come back from this break.

    I'd be VERY interested to learn more about this.

    seems plausible...and as for the alcohol in the system, my understanding is that if you're drinking regularly and you take a urine test, it will show up, even if it's been a couple days since your last drink...just like with drugs, the amount of time it takes for the body to metabolize it lengthens with longer term/chronic users...anyone in the field care to clarify this?

    If its true, it's exactly what's wrong with music today...corporations controlling rock and roll, totally sick.

    If this is true, Wolfie is probably supplying Ed with "clean" urine.
