    That was cool, but there were some moments where Ed seems really spaced out.

    Many thanks, JB - I've never seen any of that before! Do you think it's possible that our Eddie was just a wee bit plastered???

    Wow. Ed sounded like a dick through almost the whole interview.
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    I really want to think Eddie isn't a racist. But this treatment of saying "a guy rang me up and I thought he was prank calling" turns into "some black guy phones me up". This and the whole Pat Smear thing kind of put him in a bad light about that.

    He seems drunk, but hey, it was the lifestyle then. I guess it does sound assholey if the #1 guitar player of the day is asked "Do you listen to anybody now and have an ear for them?" and he just bluntly says "Nope". But we all know that as ironic as it is, Eddie doesn't really listen to current music.
    If I told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what I've gone through over the last 20 odd years, what it took to finally get where I am, people just wouldn't fucking believe it. So it's pointless. I now realize that I can't change people's minds, and I really don't want to or need to try. I'm at peace with it, and that's all that matters. - Edward Van Halen

    Loved it! I can't believe I'd never seen that video clip. It makes me really wish there was more stuff out there for us to discover that is new to us. I loved that whole era (85-89).

    Yeah, he was drunk, but I think he spent most of the 80s (and 90s) (and 2000s) that way.

    Haha! Well....he always did really! if you read most of the GW, or GP articles over the years, there's always been some real gems where he says something like; "I don't want to sound like an asshole but...." Then he'd make a statement about someone else or their ability or something, and yeah...Ed....You sound like an asshole! haha! he was still likeable, but sometimes he'd just drop a backhanded comment at someone, and you're like, Jeez...Where'd that come from?
    It's just his way. A lot of it probably came from too much social lubrication prior to the interviews which he was known for.

    What did he say about Pat Smear. I'm surprised he even knows who he is.

    You think that was being a fun drunk?? He was being your classic pain in the ass drunk. The only reason those other two guys put up with 2 minutes of that shit was because he was Eddie VH.
