    National Enquirer - February 11th - "Eddie Van Halen BACK ON BOOZE"

    I know this magazine is tabloid crap, but this story sounds pretty accurate, and I see no reason for them to write this if it wasn't true. Here are some of the quotes from "a source":

    "It's the same old sad story for Eddie. He had a few good weeks when the tour began in September, but then he started drinking bourbon to wind down after the shows."

    "Val knows. For the time being, she's allowing Wolfie to stay on the road with him, but she's warned Eddie that if he doesn't stay away from alcohol, she'll yank Wolfie off the tour."

    "Counselors have told Eddie that he needs to take a sober sponsor out on the road, but Eddie says he can handle this on his own. History has shown he can't."

    The story also says he's desperately trying to keep his boozing secret from Wolfie.

    If you want to read the article, it's in the National Enquirer, February 11th issue - page 57. It also has a recent picture of Eddie that I haven't seen before.

    I would like to assume Ed is staying off the sauce... but you know how history is about repeating itself...

    Can anyone say their suprised? The fucker was acting and playing shitty before Christmas, so big surprise. Ed is to much of a "big shot" with all the yes men for him to ever truly believe he has a problem. Maybe if Val did yank the kid and the tour got cancelled it would jerk a not in Ed's ass. If nothing else, it would hurt him in the only place he is concerened: The Wallet.
    But I doubt she would do that cause then her own alimony payments would suddenly get thin. Fuckin hollywood......

    Must be true, Ed is a big Bourbon drinking If Ed was hiding it, he is smart enough to know Vodka is the drink of choice. It is amazing that we are now quoting the Enquirer on Ed's condition.. This is pathetic

    Pretty much what I thought, his playing was better for the first month of the tour from the bootlegs i've listened to. I noticed from November onward he was in 2004 tour mode with his playing...so I figured he was half in the bag again. This was brought up in a previous thread around here a few weeks ago.

    Anyone that's seen him on this leg knows that if he has been drinking, it's indeed been after the show.

    And, just to throw some gasoline on the fire.. Val was on Wolf's side of the stage for almost the whole show in Dallas.
    Don't drink the Jim Jones punch. They're called theToxic Twins for a reason...

    As in after the show the previous night and right up to the show the next day? If he's not drinking then I don't know wtf he's doing because his playing is all over the place...again. Really don't give a fuck, it's his deal, but if he's sober then something is going on with his motor skills. I was really happy to hear him playing well from the stuff I heard from late September through October, after that pffft.
