    Default EVH Bi-polar? A need for some medical input

    First there's the new Sam interview and the plane incident. Then also the fact that 1978-1996, although EVH was drinking he seemed to be able to interact normally with other human beings. Then his loony behavior in the last 10 years (cure for cancer, blessing people, hiring wolf, etc).

    We all know he tried therapy, with no visible results.

    Could it be that he has some condition that could be treated with the right prescription drug? Age and alcohol probably made it worse, but it was there already. I'm seeking some medical advice from the doctors visiting this board. I think that's what all the recent stories point to - it's way more than a guy just "battling his demons." It seems that's what Sam and others are hinting at: the guy has some mental issues, and I'm thinking (but I have no professional knowledge whatsoever) that with the right prescription drugs, our hero could be back in action!

    don't know if that is evh case, but i guy i work with would act so cool to you and others and then he would go off in another direction with the way he acted, aka a dick. we think he may be bi polor. i dont know if ed is like i said he could just be the shit he went thru and trying to stop drinking.

    I'll be the first to say Eddie has a problem and an ass, dick or whatever. But I don't think it's a good idea to assume anything like this. Not fair, so not a good idea at all.

    i wish Sam would do us a favor and STFU about Van Halen. he's starting to sound like the guy who was dumped ten years ago and is still pining for that poon.

    he could be bi-polar or it could be Korsakoff syndrome due to his long term alcohol and substance abuse.
    in any case its really none of our business, we shouldnt speculate or pass judgement unless we are directly involved.

    Years ago, I posted something similar. I'm too tired to search, but as I've grown in my own life, I've realized it is none of my business.

    Having said that, I think Ed is a tortured genius. Whether it's bi-polar, or some other mental illness, I don't know.

    What makes it so difficult for most of us to accept, I think...is that he always seemed like such a happy guy on stage, always smiling, always having a good time...

    That on-stage persona (2004 excluded) does not equate to the stories that are told and agreed upon by so many others.

    Shit, he looks pretty normal save for the amp throwing for the 07-08 tour.

    Last, I think Ed is the kind of guy you want to root for. When he delivers, it puts smiles on all our faces. When he doesn't deliver, or he acts like an ass, we kind of try to look the other way.

    No one's passing judgement here. Trying to find an explanation and who knows, maybe some psychiatrist who is a fan and visits this board might notice something similar to a patient her or she is treating, and get in touch with EVH and help him.

    It's not likely, but there might be a way us fans could HELP the guy. No one on this board is happy about the current situation.

    I'm of the opinion this isn't appropriate to discuss in the absence of a real diagnosis. Ed has problems, but we're not privy to whether they're related to a genuine disorder or simply a toxic concoction of old age and ego. I tend to learn toward the latter.

    Closing.

    He's a musician. He's not your blood relative. Being dissatisfied with the state of Van Halen hardly qualifies a member of this board to play Mr. Fix-It in the dude's personal life.
