    Default In Ed's Own Words

    Found this snippet from an interview on this site, thought i'd share it with you all...

    "Oh yeah, we were actually becoming friends. Before we went to the MTV Video Music awards, we all sat down--(Van Halen manager) Ray Danniels, Dave, Al, Mike and I--Because we knew we were going to get mobbed by the press. And it was actually Dave who said, "Let's tell the truth." Less to remember. And the truth it is, we did two songs for Greatest Hits, we did two videos and that's it. We could go out there and make a killing on tour with Roth, but we're not a nostalgia band, I would never just take somebody's money for playing old songs to bring back memories. Memories are memories, to be left memories. If we ever did that with Roth, we'd have to write and record a new record and then play a few of the old ones. I'm sure a lot of fans of the band would love to see it--but some things, like I said, are better left to memory." EVH

    Yes, Ed did say that but people change over time. Plus, that lineup is not touring since Wolfie is playing bass.

    He's ten years closer to death than he was then. Better to make the cash grab sooner than later.

    But change isn't always for the better. Plus, it's the the arrogance and contempt within that 1996 statement that makes one want to throw it back in his face.

    Where are you pre-1996 Ed, where are you, please come back, this other guy just isn't right!

    And I take it that somehow you are not?

    Yeah a lot of crap can happen over 10 years. Especially with these guys. This is probably the reason why they rarely do interviews anymore.

    It's about Eddie. He prolly realized he was closer to death and the window of opportunity is growing smaller so he went for the cash grab.

    Relax with the defensiveness.

    I thought that was the case in 2004 when he cried during the standing O after his solo. Thankfully Edward is still with us.

    And what evidence have you gathered that proves that Ed Van Halen glanced at the calendar on the refrigerator, did some mental arithmetic and figured out that "Yup, I'm dying...better organise a proper college fund for Wolfie"?

    Unless you know the truth about the situation, you are merely taking a shot in the dark toward what he "prolly" intended. It has nothing to do with defensiveness. Try common sense instead.

    And in case you have not noticed, I'm one of the last people around here defending the actions of the guy. Yet on his own he makes enough outrightly boneheaded decisions in his life, so there is little need for people to go about fashioning new and imagined ones to add to the list.
