    "Eddie Van Halen is an awsome guy! We have been talking lately, he sent us a donation. People should know he didn't ignore the ice bucket challenge but wanted to do something less public and from his heart. #eddievanhalen

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    This is the Eddie I've come to respect. He's always done right by people and organizations that need help. Sometimes I break his balls on this site but that's only out of frustration from wanting to hear new music etc...Eddie does a lot of good too and he deserves recognition for that.

    But wait he didn't pour a bucket of ice on his head and donate 30 dollars like I did. What an ass

    See stuff like this makes me think that as a person, Eddie is a decent guy. He just doesn't do well in a band. Makes him a crummy bandmate, not a terrible human like people paint him out to be.

    Kudos to Eddie and glad that Jason and him had a chat

    Ahh, there it is... I knew someone was going to try bring in some negativity into this thread...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Love to see this band do something PR wise like the ice etc. I guess they shot their wad when they faked the parachute jump. WTG Ed.

    Nice to see both Ed and DLR donate to the ALS cause. It seems that Dave always cared for Jason Becker and it looks like Ed and Dave have Jason in common.

    Very classy. Way to go both Ed and Dave.

    With no music to talk about, we overanalyze the shit out of this stuff. So Ed wrote a check? That's easy. He has more money than all of us put together. Took him 5 mins.

    Bottom line, we don't know what kind of a human being he is. He is a great guitar player, though, when he actually plays.

    Whether he poured water on his head (or not) and whether he (or one of his staff) wrote a check to ALS (or not), we don't know much -- and we project onto him what we want to believe. We have no idea if he made this happen, his PR people said "look, you need to do something, so we will send a check". From his heart? Maybe. Maybe not.

    I'm not tearing the guy down, I'm only saying we have no freakin' clue and yet we argue about it.

    imo.

    EVH has always supported Jason Becker. Always. He's great with some people, less great with others. A man of many contrasts, with a complex personality.

    Default Somewhat random thought ...

    I'm always baffled how there is shitty video footage of Ed (doing his ALS with poor Becker pledge) yet crystal clear still photos are evident

    Same goes for the live performance of 'Beat It' w/Michael Jackson and co... The video absolutely sucks , yet there's pics galore online . Ugghhh . I guess baffled isn't the right word .... I'm pissed off ! Haha
    "There's too many people on this basketball that's floating around the sun, who are too afraid to allow themselves to FEEL" - Edward Van Halen
    "Van Halen was never about the singer..." - a very wise fan.
