    Default 2004 - Wolf joins Ed on stage

    Pulling this out for a couple of reasons......

    1. Not that I need any reason to get fired up for the show tomorrow night but I've been watching some bad Ed from 2004 and 2007 so I will appreciate even more the remarkable turnaround in Ed this year. I can't wait to see a night of flawless playing from him again. Been way too fucking long.


    2. In 2004 I hadn't followed anything to do with the tour. When I went to my show in New Jersey I had no idea that Wolf had been joining Ed for 316 so I was completely caught off guard when it happened. I've got a shit load of special concert moments through the years but there was something about that one that got to me. I thought it was awesome.

    I watched a Humans Being from 04 then some Ed solos from 2007. As you would say, holy fuck on a cracker.


    I'm floored that he's back the way he is. Just want to enjoy this VH year as much as I can. Never thought I'd see it again.

    Indeed. It's great to see him back in form. Never thought the day would come either.

    At some shows in 1998 Wolfie used to just run onstage during Ed's solo.

    I recall him doing that at the Spectrum in Philly. He would just hug Ed..and run back off.

    As bad a state Ed was in during that 2004 Tour, there were definitely some good moments. This was definitely one of them. Ed was also pretty sober for that NJ show, as well. You can tell when he speaks and when he plays.

    Same with Toronto. He was pretty good that night as well. Seems like after July was when things started getting really bad for Ed.


    Wish Ed would have played this at our show in Toronto in 04. He would have been sitting RIGHT in front of me and Jetguy_5150.

    Still have fond memories of that tour and time period.

    I can also cleary remember that Wolf ran on stage at the gig in Munich in 1995 when they opened for Bon Jovi. When they bowed at the end of the show Val who was standing besides the stage was pushing him gently onto the stage and he stood there with those HUGE headphones on and was looking like he saw ghost. No wonder, I bet a kid isn't used to 50.000 people cheering.

    After seeing this clip I completely understand Ed's desire to make music with his son. Although this tour wasn't Eddie's finest hour,this was really special.

    If only Ed could get in that kind of physical shape without the booze. I love that he's sober...but it won't matter if he dies from a heart attack.

    Dude in 2004 he looked like a meth addict.


    Maybe Ed's put on a few pounds but you make it sound like he's John Candy.

    Just worried about him. I want him to live to be 100. Agree that he also looked bad in 2004....but this isn't good for his health either.

    He's always been trim and fit. He is really out of shape now. Never seen him like that.
