    "I can also see the man who gave Eddie his first shot of vodka and first cigarette at the age of 12 in an effort to help calm his nerves before performing, yet unknowingly turning him on to a pair of vices that would rob him of many prime years of productivity while battling addiction."

    OK, time to settle this...I have heard several variations of this story, one going so far as to quote Eddie himself saying that he got bit by a dog and his dad gave him a shot and a cigarette to calm him down. I have never heard the version stating that it was to calm his nerves before performing (at 12 yrs old nonetheless). Hausman?

    I have always thought it was to calm his nerves before a performance
