    Default Ed on Cover with Musician's Friend with Interview

    Got my Musician's Friend monthly catalog/magazine yesterday.

    Some here will recognize it, it's a gear catalog that always has an interview of the month with the cover artist.

    This month it's Ed, and of course they say the interview is at www.musiciansfriend.com/cover.

    Of course, the link brings up the July interview with Carlos Santana!

    I wonder if it a mistake by Musicians Friend or did the Mighty VH in another great PR move pull the interview?

    They touched up Ed's photos out the ass, especially page 3.

    Sent them an email asking about it, we'll see.


    Link below for your pleasure.

    It redirects to the Santana page.

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    They definitely used the healing brush or other Photoshop tool in every photo. The wrinkles around his eyes should match or be close to the wrinkles in his hands -- the last photo also had some major work in the hair dept. WOW!

    I think this link (http://www.rexfeatures.com/set/1343922) -- posted in another thread -- clearly shows what ED looks like as of 6/2012.

    Question is... were they edited by the photographer or by the MF Art dept?

    I don't get why they photoshop the pics of Eddie. He is an old guy now, let him look his age. Or maybe Ed got some plastic surgery for the tour?

    Before we get the link up and running, I'll predict the content of the interview:

    Musicians Friend: Ed, you're great. You're awesome!

    Ed: Thanks.

    Musicians Friend: What have you been up to?

    Ed: Lots of things. I have new stuff to sell.

    Musicians Friend: Tell us about the stuff.

    Ed: It's the best stuff ever. Even better than last time. Everybody should buy some.

    Musicians Friend: Tell us more.

    Ed: I test all my stuff myself. If it doesn't meet my standards, it doesn't go out. My stuff is really durable and won't break down.

    Musicians Friend: This piece of stuff is new. I like it.

    Ed: Yes. I made some changes. I'm a tone chaser and this is the best-sounding piece of stuff in its class.

    Musicians Friend: Any more news from Van Halen land?

    Ed: Yes. Things will happen some time. In the meantime, buy my stuff.

    Musicians Friend: Thanks for the interview.

    Ed: You're welcome. Buy my stuff.

    I'm with you -- It's not fooling anyone!

    This isn't perfect by any means but I can assure you it was down in under 5 minutes using a Photoshop technique:



    I guess if "younger is better" in a marketing report, it's going to remain a common practice in advertising.

    Wow, now there is a guy with past substance abuse problems that make Ed look like a choir boy!

    Those videos have been up on there for quite a while I think.

    My understanding from the magazine was that it was a new interview.

    Maybe I am mistaken and it is just a bad link and that they don't have anything new.

    Hahaha That's some funny shit there and sooo true with all his interviews lately.

    Probably because he's not passed out on the floor anymore.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
