    Default EVH/Sly Stallone annecdote

    I was just listening to a new interview with a guy called Matt Hannon who starred in the 1991 film Samurai Cop, which is a personal fav of mine. This guy had been listed as deceased on the imdb.com site for the past 3 years, but has suddenly come out of nowhere to reveal he's still alive and is filming a sequel, so I was pretty interested to check the interview out

    about half way through this 2 hour interview he starts talking about the days in the mid 80s when he was Sly Stallone's bodyguard, and he starts telling this story which I have transcribed as best I can. (the interview can be streamed here, this particular bit comes in when the timer hits -1:05:50):

    There was a time when Sly lived in Malibu on a road called Broadbeach (?) road and there was another celebrity that lived down the way, Valerie Bertinelli and her husband at the time, I can't remember what his name...uh...the... Wolfgang, not Wolfgang, what's his son that plays guitar for uh....whoever Valerie Bertinelli's first husband was...But anyway he was a couple of doors down from Sly, and Sly came tearing down the road and apparently this guy didn't like that he did that and yelled something to Sly and Sly pulled over and got out and now they're having this argument and I went to slow down because I had a turbo porche, and he was just being like anyone else just having a little fun on a private road...well Voyo (sp?) our Russian friend, he pulls up behind Sly on the chase car and I see Sly and this guy face to face, Voyo jumps out and he just goes after this guy, and he's in his face grabbin' him, and Sly literally has to jump on Voyo's back and starts choking him trying to pull him off cause he knows 'I can't be having you do this, I'm gonna get sued!'...this is the kind of stuff that would go on.
    - the guy "Voyo" is Sly's other bodyguard who was also on duty at the time.

    So EVH and Sly had a standoff, ending with Sly pulling his own bodyguard off Ed?! I just thought that was pretty funny, and I've not heard that before, has anyone else?

    What I find amazing is this guy knew Valerie and Wolf's names but couldn't remember EVH I believe he's genuine though. maybe just not a rock fan!

    Cool little story, although I think he remembers Eddie. Just playing around a little with the interviewer.

    That's an understatement! Much more accurate to say he was living under a rock if he didn't know about VH in the mid-80s. "what's his son that plays guitar for uh....whoever"...

    ...Yeah right. He had to have been playing around there. You would be hard pressed to not know about VH if you were living in Nebraska....much less working for a guy who lived next door to EVH himself! ....In LA!

    haha...true.... but I listened to this guy talk for 2 hours, and I honestly don't think he was fooling around there, I think he genuinely had some kind of random 'brain-blank' moment

    either way, it was an amusing story so I thought I'd share it

    This story sounds questionable. Ed had fast cars galore, I'm sure he did the same thing. It's also quite a distance from the house to the road., with a giant gate. I'm pretty sure Ed isn't bionic.

    I would also think once Ed saw it was Sly he might've relaxed a bit....cuz it was Rocky/Rambo.

    Think you may have your houses confused. The beach house is right on Broadbeach road.

    You're probably thinking of Ed's house next to 5150, it meets that description.

    So the guy knows that Wolfgang, Eddies son plays in the band, but cant remember the band or Eddie? Most VH fans couldn't even tell you that!

    Well its good that Stallone and his body guard didn't come to blows with Eddie. I doubt they were wearing any sort of genital protection devices like a cup.

    Yes I went there.

    Wow, that's a couple threads now where another favorite star of mine fucked with a member of Van Halen. First Sly, then a member of Zeppelin, what's next--Chevy Chase and Seinfeld pinning Diamond Dave down and farting on his head?

    Anyone can have a brain cramp. It happens.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -
