    Default QUESTION AND OBSERVATION ON EDDIE

    I have nothing but respect for Eddie's musical abilities and what he has overcome in life with cancer and alcoholism. It's great to see him look so healthy.

    2 observations I have:

    1. I have never met the man, but he seems like that coy family member who wants to keep everyone guessing, and will never give a straight answer (except for this past week.. finally) Any misdirection the band puts out is from him - that is evident. Clearly he knew months ago about the tour and therefore had to know about plans with Dave, yet he played the coy "I dunno" role. Which leads me to the question of "Really??? Why, Eddie?". He is one of the biggest bullshi**er's to the media. Don't believe me, take the most recent example... hasn't DLR been clamoring to record new music over the last several years, and yet Eddie indicates nobody had the time. I would bet a lot of money that DLR would catch a last minute flight from Tokyo to LAX if Eddie said "Dave, let's record tomorrow". This just doesn't add up. Why does Eddie roll this way?

    2. And now, for a much lesser and non-meaningful exercise, look at his appearance on the Smithsonian event vs. how he looked on the Kimmel and Ellen shows. Looks like a full head of hair this week. Funny how everyone bags on Roth for his hair (plugs or wigs) yet nobody seems to notice Ed's different look.


    Okay.. that's it.

    Default QUESTION AND OBSERVATION ON EDDIE

    Ed's hair looks the same to me. It just grew out a little and a slightly different style. Ed is nowhere near losing his hair like Dave. If Ed has a rug, it's the best ever.

    Can somebody please inform mine of this?

    Now if you were saying "It fell out, that's what hair does", I'd be right there with you.

    I won't deny Ed's a blatant liar. I'm not sure I buy "not having time" to record a new album.

    To me it seems he probably lied about not having your plans at the Smithsonian just for the element of surprise. Kimmel, Ellen, the tour, all of that had to have been fairly finalized, but timing on the announcement wasn't right.

    And IDGAF about his hair.

    I don't care about his hair either, but he definitely has had a touch up and I don't mean coloring. He had a nice big bald spot in the crown area at the Smithsonian.

    Who cares?

    Well I wasn't supposed to say anything but the cats out of the bag. So I was over Lebron James house three weeks ago teaching him some post up moves to assist in the playoffs. Door bell rings and its Eddie Van Halen and if anybody remembers the first interview that Eddie did with Jas Obrecht, you know he likes to ball. So the three of us had a rousing game of 21 which I could have won but was kicked in the nads by Eddie. Should have worn a cup,.

    Anyway after the game, I asked Eddie why he was stopping over. First was to help Lebron with his first solo album. Second is that he wanted to sample what LBJ uses when he needs to seed his scalp. Anyway LBJ has a barbershop in his basement so Eddie sat down while Lebron applied the treatment.

    True story

    Seriously WTF?

    Every guy in this band, past and present is gray as could be. Sammy "gasp" doesnt' have blond hair. Its as gray as Barbara Bush's bush. They all use product and if one is going to talk about covering up bald spots, what about the pelt on Mike's head? Guy has more hair now than he did on VH1. He went to the clinic and said "I want to go the full Kevin Dubrow"

    These guys are in their 60's. They all have help with their follicles

    Hehe, I think everyone missed the point DD was making about "appearance". Dave changed his hair everyone had a shit attack. Ed does it no one said anything. That's all.

    Not really sure Ed intentionally changed his appearance per se. At the Smithsonian event he had some kind of styling product in his hair and was under bright overhead lighting. That's going to make almost anyone look at least a bit bald / thinning unless one has incredibly thick hair. Granted, he does have thinning hair like most males of that age group. But when his hair is blown dry and appropriately styled it no doubt covers his scalp just fine. If anything, the hair and makeup people at the tv studios may have used a little bit of concealer to strategically cover his scalp. Pretty much standard procedure in the tv and movie industry. His incredible playing is of course what matters, but we do tend to analyze the appearance of our idols, especially ones that we've been looking at for decades in many cases. Now Dave, I'd be willing to bet he did have some modern micrograft procedures in the down time. That remaining bald spot on his head will no doubt fill in by the time the tour kicks off. As others have pointed out, even with the existing short hair he looks like John Paul Jones from certain angles, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Now if he'd only continue to focus on singing in the pocket and within his natural range, then we'd have the band firing on all cylinders. Others have no doubt noticed he has reintroduced his classic shorter scream, which seemed to be missing during the 2013 shows.

    Did it ever occur to anyone around here that maybe, just maybe, Ed is on medication to take the edge off of his alcoholism? He's too happy these
    days. Not "obliterated" from them, but in "happy" mode all the time.

    Can you say "Sedated?"




    No one's talking



    of course

    All that bullshit about "I don't where Dave is now" is just that. Bullshit.

    Ed knew all along where he was.

    So what you are saying is bagging on Roth wasn't enough so lets bag on Eddie too? And you are a fan of this band? I will never understand fans like that. They aren't fans that's the whole thing.
