    Wait...never knew Jones and Jackson came to Eddie's house to recruit him for Beat It. Somehow, the picture in my head of MJ banging on Eddie's guitar case is cracking me up.

    If "that" MJ had had some intervention soon after that point in his life, he might still be with us.

    I've been a vh fan since 84 and I've never seen a pic of Donn Landee until now. Kinda cool to be able to put a face to the name.

    Donn Landee looks a bit like Marc Goodman from the early MTV days.

    I bet Eddie is thinking "this would be creepy if I was 11 years old."

    He could still be thinking it is creepy, even at his age...

    Awesome, thanks! I love all the US Festival stuff.

    But...

    You guys on the forum who are not obsessive-compulsive won't understand this but things like this drive me crazy:

    aside from a one-minute snatch on 1996’s Balance album


    When simple things like that are wrong it always makes me guarded about what other errors there might be that aren't so obvious.

    Nevertheless, I know it's just me being picky. I guess I should have been an editor, haha! This series is great fun and I can't wait for the rest!

    Interesting theory in the comments that Dave left the band because Eddie was locking himself in the studio getting drunk and letting Dave and Templeman sit outside for hours...and that Dave leaving may have saved Eddie's life since he was motivated to "prove he could succeed without Dave" and slowed down on the booze a little. Dunno if there is any merit to that...but interesting to think about.

    The stuff about the clash (heh) with The Clash always cracks me up. The Clash stuck me as full of themselves and hypocritical elitist douchebags. Getting into a verbal war with VH was a very bad idea. Having Dave on the other side makes it impossible to win.

    All this talk of Ed and Donn Landee being so close makes me curious as to what exactly happened between them.

    anyone?

    Apparently the same thing that happens to just about everyone that is close to Ed at some point.
