    Default Awful Eddie pic in new mag.

    Sorry if this has been discussed but I did'nt see anything allthough I don't check as much anymore.

    I was at Borders the other night and they have one of those typical 100 greatest guitar player mags or something like that. I was flipping through it and got to the section on Eddie. It had an old interview and a first pic from around 1991 when he looked pretty good. I turned the page and went Yikes! They have a full size pic on the next page of Ed from around 2005 and he is doing the typical EVH smile. The pic is from when he looked all messed up and burnt out. His hair is long grey and stringy and his glaring teeth are brown and rotted looking.

    I am really surprised that a mag promoting the best guitar players would put such a horrible pic in there! At least use one that is recent and where his teeth are fixed! I have seen bad pics of him before and cringed but that was on the internet. this was a full size color photo in a mag! I would be pissed if i was him!

    You're probably thinking of one of Ross Halfins' "works". he was the photog responsible for the imfamous Guitar World cover featuring Ed. He's taken alot of heat on other forums for his style of photography in recent years. Some pics appeared of Pete Townsend in some ads for instance where he looked like one of his eyes looked drooped and his facial expression did'nt even look like him; he looked to be in the throws of a stroke and to boot the pic was shot on a closed set. did'nt even fit the type of ad. I'm not excusing Ed's state at that time, he looked like a cracked out hobo, but those pics on top of everything else were incredibly bad. Funny thing is that there were a couple small ones in the mag that DID look way better than the cover. Dunno. They must have payed real big buck for them, then got stuck with what they could use for press time constraints would be my guess. Second rate shit.

    There is no such thing as an aweful pic of Eddie, just some misunderstood ones perhaps.

    Right Kimmie?

    Could it be that the editor of the magazine is doing a version of Toto pulling the curtain to expose Oz?

    Egads, that pic is horrible. Not as bad as the one Eddymon likes to trot out on a regular basis, but still bad nonetheless.

    Ugh...that picture is gross. Look at the color of his front 6 teeth compared to to others.

    Looks like Ed ate a wet cigarette sandwich for lunch and forgot to bruch for about a year prior.

    That's freakin nasty.

    Yeah. I had mentioned before in another post about some of his friends or former employees had said on radio and in print that he pulled off the caps on his teeth. I think this proves it. I had a cap fall off years ago when I was in a bike crash, and I can tell you the tooth underneath the cap that had been on for about fifteen years looked like his do in this pic. I had a couple caps put on after breaking a couple teeth when I was younger, but alot of people have caps put on all the front visible teeth to hide bad imperfections. he supposedly yanked his off with pliers when he was real gooned. Must have hurt like a motherfucker. When mine came off, it was totally sensative to hot or cold. Real painful.

    Yeh mate I agree with you! It just gives the mainstreamers more to use against VH fans and all, like they'll all say "but they're so old" (that's their NUMBER ONE excuse) and then have a magazine to back them up. not that that even matters, but it's just annoying..
    still love eddie though.

    Aw man, I think the clock is slow...
