    Default Here's my thoery/s...

    1. When I played in bands I always drank and 'stuff'- as soon as I stopped I kinda got annoyed at how everyone else was partying and I wasn't.The whole gig thing was a bit of a pain so guitar became more of a hobby than way of life- maybe the same for Ed?

    2. Van Halen have used mudslinging for years -maybe it just a publicity thing- it worked in the past. The politics were as fun as the music....sorta....

    3. Ed's hit the 'grumpy old man' stage of life where everything annoys him.

    4.Ed's not gettin any.

    5.Ed's worn out from gettin too much.

    6. Money and the industry have completely changed him....

    I think Ed's always had pretty high levels of insecurity and paranoia as well, which influence a lot of what we see.

    This is my signature saying someone (you choose) made Van Halen better so I can say "Deal with it".

    I think the years of alcohol and substance abuse has caused a chemical imbalance in his brain that kind of gives a bipolar type of mentality.

    Yes - agree with these. These guys (Ed, Al and Dave) have acted on occasion like poorly-parented juniors in high school. I have always felt that their emotional growth seemed to stop just as their careers took off...so maybe 1977? I mean, who says the things they've said to each other through the years and as Ed did as a 60 year old? Um...poorly-parented juniors in high school.

    It all started when the illuminati gave him that pick he put on his tongue.

    VH Links- Main Van Halen discussion....Isn't that what I'm suppose to do? I'm just having a bit of a laugh at it, it's been going on for years! Band soap operas are always fun.
