    Default Eddie VH a fallen guitar hero

    I could have responded in each of the Threads about Ed but just decided to start a new one instead about Eddie VH. I really don't understand why so many people have such a hard time understanding why Ed says what he says. Lets face it. Ed is/was a great guitar player, rock star, icon, and guitar hero. Ed is also a severe alcoholic and drug addict.
    Every alcoholic and drug user that I know has the same problems that Ed has, they lie, cheat, and steal, and bring everything around them down. The only difference is that Ed is rich and famous and can still play a great guitar. He puts on a cute monkey smile and hits the whammy bar and everything is good to some people. The reality is that Ed can't be held to the same standard as people that don't have his addictions. His version of the truth is so distorted by now, his brain probably has physical damage at this point due to his years of alcoholism. He was my guitar hero, made great music, and brought a lot of fun to a lot of people. But now he is just another person, possibly trying to recover from his addictions, and the world around him is burnt and scorched- it is not unusual. The truly sad fact is that it just a shame because Van Halen had such an awesome reputation in rock, other bands have had addicts in their bands but the reputation remained. Van Halen has managed to almost entirely ruin their once fantastic reputation. He has pissed off or pissed on just about everyone around him, including himself and his band's legacy . Ed is a fallen guitar hero now and as a diehard fan, I really don't know what they can do at this point to get it back.

    You should have just responded to all the other threads. Thanks for keeping the wall of text short.

    Fallen??? Uhh, no. He's just not interested in it all anymore. He has been to the edge and stood and looked down. We are all thankful that he was able to back away.

    With all the Dave, Ed and Wolf bashing, maybe this should become The Circle Links

    you make some ok points about alcoholic/drugs which of course plays into everything we know about EVH.

    Don't think fallen is accurate though. What are the problems...?
    1) Put his kid in the band after fallout with Mike.
    2) Only 2 studio albums in 17 yrs (ok)
    3) Mentioned some bad stuff about Mike once in 8 years.

    One of my favorite EVH tribute videos on the web!!!
    Lots of killer clips in there.

    Notice how the first person he thanks is his "best friend and son, Wolfgang."

    We can probably do without another thread for this, so I'll close this one and offer to anybody interested to continue the pile on in the other threads, no problem.

    I'll say this though- That guitar god award video was fucking awesome! What a great compilation.

    Also, yes, the happy go lucky cheezy grin charisma Eddie that we knew in places like the Panama video is long gone.

    Yet I'm still forking out a little cash to catch the show next week and looking forward to it.
