    Default Anybody else wonder if Ed fell off wagon?

    When Dave posted "Get Ready" message on his home page, I think most believed an official announcement was days away. 4 Months later still - NADDA! Finally read excerpts from Sammy's book and I must say I was horrified. Being Dave guy, I wasn't really into 2004 tour so I didn't really follow what was going nor did I frequent VHlinks. I gotta say I was floored from Sammy's book about Ed's drinking and erratic behaviour and it is just downright sad and pathetic. The saddest part, was hearing how Wolfie was in Hagar's dressing room crying after Ed allegedly trashed his dressing room. With the confusion of Grammy's debacle this past week, I'm starting to wonder if Ed started drinking again. Maybe the guy just can't handle the pressure. Throughout all the dysfunction of Dave and Sammy to me the one common denominator is the Van Halen brothers' drinking. I know Al has been dry for years but Ed has obviously struggled with bottle. According to Hagar, excessive drinking was a problem when he first joined band and continued for Ed during 2004 tour. In Dave's book, he mentioned when they split in '85, Ed and him hugged at his dad's place and he alluded to Alex's drinking problem. Back in the 90's, Dave also went on Howard Stern and blasted the brothers' and finally admitted the main reason he left was because the brother's were stoned all the time. I'm not saying Sammy and Dave were perfect (both have admitted as much) they weren't'. I will say, Ed's long history of alcohol abuse is cause for concern. If so, fuck any new music, fuck any tour, fuck Dave reunion or whatever you wanna call it. This guy needs to work on himself. I'll just savour the 6 pack and few Sammy songs I liked. Hope I'm wrong but just thought I'd throw this out there for discussion.

    Like Interscope would have signed them if he did? Same with Columbia as close as they were to signing with them.

    Each time something negative happens with this band I'm sure Ed's history will come up and speculated about.

In light of dormancy of band and countless delays, I thought it was legitimate reason for current problems. It's not a dump on Ed thread. Moderators, close if you must.

    I think he's just being a control-freak. You don't need to be a drunk for that.

    Gary Cherone looks happy and healthy. Wolfgang Van Halen is a class act.

    Seemed perfectly normal the other night on the Grammy nominations concert.

    He could be off the wagon but who really knows.
    Not like there's a ton of information from the band letting the fans know about release dates or anything.
