    I saw the pics and commentary that Grant had linked on his website. I don't know the gentleman who tried to photo and speak to Eddie, but man, this makes Eddie look bad. Granted, I know any butthole out there can go pester a celebrity to death and stuff, but I don't think this was the case. Eddie seemed to be pretty selective in photo ops and autographs. I don't know guys, but this kinda seems to back up other stories I've heard over the years about him. He seems like he can be pretty harsh toward fans sometimes. I know there are a lot of you out there that have awesome stories about him personally. I believe those as well. Share a story with me about meeting him or the group as a whole for that matter. I am not here to bash him, but rather, to understand him better.

    Awwwww come on people. Surely you can give me some insight here. You mean to tell me I got 15 or more views on this topic and not one of you is willing to tell me what you know of Edward Van Halen. I'm waiting. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    I don't understand how you can say he was selective about photo ops. Those of us that followed him around the course were able to take as many pictures as we wanted and talk to him all day long. He stayed after the tournament for at least two hours signing autographs, taking pictures and just generally chatting with the huge line of people that were there to see him.

    Harsh with the fans? Hardly. He may have been a little harsh with a few members of the media....but they had it coming

    AHHHH CHELLE: Love of my life, Why are you putting words in my mouth? I didn't say he was harsh to the fans, I said it seemed like it. I have heard other stories from people and had recently seen this guy's pics and made what is quite possibly a bad assumption...I don't know. This guy might have put his slant on it and I (like I said) don't know the guy. He could have a grudge against Eddie or whatever. I was just looking for comment from people that have met him since I have not. Eddie is ok. I have nothing against him....because I don't know him.

    I have to agree with Chelle. Eddie wasn't extremely accomidating to people that asked him for pics on the course. Eddie seemed very happy go lucky for the most part that day. He joked with his gallery and even fooled me once...fucking Ed. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Dude, I don't want to be harsh with you; after all, I'm a peaceful sort of guy. Anyway, the lack of response is probably due to the fact that this topic was beat to death a couple of weeks ago. Look it up. Past stories of fans meeting him on other occasions can be found here as well. Peace.

Just saying this topic was pretty much covered from every possible angle. Any new posts will just be a complete re-hashing of what was already covered a but load of times. If you go through those 2 threads that should pretty much burn up your day!

    Tone is so hard to tell on these damn boards sometimes. Sorry if I sound like an asshole sometimes. Look, I didn't know how well this subject was covered and I guess maybe we can all learn something here. It is too easy to jump to conclusions here. I guess I just thought from the wording that I had made you angry by posting that topic again.

    Sometimes?

    Dude, if you'd ever visit MY board, you'd see that the golf thing was covered fairly well there too. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
