    Either that is just snippets from past articles thrown into one or Ed just gives the same comments on everything these days. I know he does a lot of the latter.

    Maybe everything back then is just a haze from all the years of drug and alcohol abuse and he has to read his old Guitar Magazine articles just to remember what happened.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I know the article is dated Nov. 25, 2009, but this isn't a new article, is it? It looks like a new compilation of past interviews or a new appearance of an old article. I would like to know when Ed said all this. Anybody know?

    There are some underhanded comments, but overall - what a great read! I really enjoyed it.

    I'm not sure if this is all that new. I'll have to dig out my old GW Legends, but this sounds exactly like a interview he did after FUCK was released as he went through and gave the same review about each album.

    I'm not positive about this, but if anyone has that article at the ready, I'm sure you'll see some very close similarities.

    JINX! We posted the same thing at the same time.

    If you have the GW Legends issues, it should be in there.

    Im pretty sure I have read that snipped about 5150 before.

    If not, it is nice to see Ed talk about Sammy.

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    Hmmmmm. I agree with a lot of you. Its not new. I've read all that before, unless Eddie has learnt to re-cite everything he said over 15 years ago.

    Some of these reads do sound familiar......I have read some of this before....in fact I think some of this was in a Guitar Legends magazine maybe late 90's early 2000's? but there is some added stuff about "Eruption" on how he actually used the Echo effect, and about "Jump" also never heard him say 1984 was his favorite album etc.

    "Poundcake" as well... Ed describes how he used the 12 string in detail, I new he used it but never heard him tell it like that.....amongst other stuff that is sprinkled through out the article.

    Bottom line to sum it up.... I think this is new interview material mixed with some old interview material... He continues to look healthy.....kinda looks distinguished in that picture if you ask me. I think we are gonna here from this band again!

    I think the tip-off is at the top of the Guitar World page: GW Archives.

    My question is if they're all from the same (past) interview, or are they a collection of things he's said over the years at different times?
