    Default EVH: In His Own Words

    http://www.vanhalenstore.com/page/VH/PROD/new/B56
    Guitar World Interviews with EVH from days gone by...

    There are 3 never-published interviews..the newest of which is from 1980

    Not to sure what the selling point here is..
    Is it really your words when it's filtered through a reporter's notes & memory?

    I bet it's an interesting read for people outside of this forum...
    You nutso's probably have even read the unreleased stuff, rofl...
    (ok, me too, I admit it)

    I heard of that dude. Didn't rock hard like back in the 70's and 80's or something?
    What ever became of him?

    He became an irrelevant, bitter, washed-up, lying, part-tongue-missing, alcoholic, recluse, fan-hating shoe-pusher who can't stop bullshitting himself or us and who doesn't really care to rock anymore.

    Rock books are back in a big way lately. Just an attempt to cash in on that.

    That's a good question! I assumed that Guitar World's new book was simply a revised & updated version of the old book, but it's (pretty much) not. Although 7 chapters are indeed exactly the same as the old book, half of it isn't. There's 4 new chapters which are taken from various Guitar World interviews that weren't in the old book, plus 3 new "lost interviews" which were never published at all (Which to me is the biggest selling point to a collector). The unseen interviews are all from ALL the way back ('78, '79, & '80).

    There are 14 black & white photos, too, which aren't in the old one.

    There's a lot of space for new VH books done by some serious investigative journalists. If Motley Crue can get a best seller and a movie out of their autobiography, VH surely could as well since they don't give back an inch to the crue when it comes to drama.

    Someone go and explain to EVH it would make more money than his new line of sneakers...

    They might be full of hate in your eyes...but tell me where OneWay was WRONG or LYING in any of those descriptions of Ed he listed

    He was BANG ON every one. You call it hate. I call it TRUTH.

    Not only is this absolutely correct, but I think sometimes it's done for sheer humor. Some of the stuff he says is absolutely hilarious. Only because there's so much truth behind it.

    He's a good guy, and one of my favorite posters. Don't take it so seriously as "hatred."

    and yet you still post here numerous times a day...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Dude you were pretty bitter when Dave wasn't in VH. Let's not be the pot calling the kettle back sir. You had very little nice to say about EVH unless Dave's name was attached to the band.

    Bang on and truth in all caps? Well lets take one point ..washed up. Ed can still play very well. It's unknown if he's truly done so washed up is not bang on it's a jaded fans description.

    Irrelevant...that is totally arguable. He's not on the charts, no new music is out but he's an older rocker..how relevant is Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page? Maybe on the top 40 chart not very...in some circles...very relevant and influential.

    Fan hating...is he really?

    I get why people are frustrated with VH's dysfunction but I do read that stuff as hate. If I were to call someone out here on their physical shortcomings or ailments I would be considered a ban worthy jerk and you all would say "good job fine sir" for banning me but then someone rips into Ed for having cancer and that is considered Bang On and hilarious? I think it's toxic.
