    Default RS writer David Wilde's recent run-in with Dave

    David Wilde from Rolling Stone was a guest on a podcast I like called "Rock Solid." He talks about a recent run-in with Dave at the Billboard Awards.
    It's about the liner notes Wilde wrote for Best of Both Worlds.
    I've never been a fan of Wilde's writing but it's kinda interesting. It starts around the 22 minute mark.

    It's the one album I never did pick up so I've never read the liner notes. David Wilde should've simply just explained what he said in the podcast to DLR right then and there. Most likely DLR would've understood and things would be cool between them.

    David Wild is more than just a regular guest on the Adam Carolla Show; he's what I'd call a contributor. So I've listened to him talk, 45 minutes at a time, on a regular basis for the last 5-6 years. To get him to talk shit about an artist is to pull teeth. This wasn't some anti-Roth vendetta.

    That said, it will be fun to watch the anti-Sammy people contort themselves to spin his defense of Wild wanting to include Roth in the liner notes, spin defending Ed wanting to exclude him, and spin Roth's out of line, bullshit attack on Wild.

    yeah that's my feeling too. whenever blowhards like Eddie Trunk say "Dave never could sing" it cracks me up. There was a time he could. Was it the BEST voice in the world. No, of course not. But it was good and most importantly, unique.

    this same podcast did an all Van Halen episode back when A Different Kind of Truth came out if you're interested:

    Remember what kind of shape Eddie was in back then.

    And is it REALLY "mad"? Just 3 years later, Ed had Mikey photo shopped off all their album covers on the VH website.

    Now, ten years later, he's shit on Mike again, and even on Dave a bit. This, after he's supposedly sober.

    I'd say at this point, it's par for the course.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    Given his state of mind at the time and how he feels about anyone that isn't in his circle of "brothers" at any given moment, it's not surprising.

    If they did another best of today he would try and make sure Sam and Mike weren't included. He's just a weird dude that way. There are multiple people that talk about how they "used to be" great friends with him and then they haven't talked to him in 20 years. Whether we like it or not, to anyone that isn't blood, that's just the way Ed is.

    I can't believe Matt Bruck has been by his side for as long as he has.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    This pissed off Dave confronting Wilde reminds me of the story that made the rounds at Howard Stern's premiere for "Private Parts." The story was Dave got into the theater and was pissed his seats weren't like next to Stern or something. I think he approached whoever, Gary or Stuttering John, and was like I'm fucking leaving. And did indeed leave before the film started.

    This isn’t directed at you Pacfan because I understand the point you are making but when people mention Eddie being in bad shape, I feel like saying, “so?” As if him being a druggie and a drunk excuses anything or means that his hurtful behavior wasn’t hurtful to those around him.

    I assume I’m not the only one who thinks/assumes that Ed was the one that told Dave that David Wilde didn’t want to add him to the liner notes? I wish I could assume that repulsive behavior is below Ed but at times, history says otherwise.

    think Matt's a yes man. but also wonder how much he tried to clean Ed up in the shitty years. I suppose it required Ed to face it and Wolf to help.

    Man that is a long time to be hanging on to your anger. This band behaves like a bunch of gossiping high schoolers, even today. For all his smarts Dave can be as big of an idiot as Eddie can. Eddie or Alex had to be the ones to blame it on Wilde, where else would Dave get that idea from? Its just how this band operates, always has, always will. A simple phone call from Dave to Wilde would have cleared it up, then another call to EVH to say WTF? Instead, this poor bastard gets ambushed over 10 years later over something he barely remembers. Working with or for this band in any capacity must be a real nightmare, there seems to be no sense of decency in any of them.
