    Welcome to VHForums, Uncle Dick. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    I doubt this guy's "source" has any inside track as to what Ed might have said to Val, especially about something as serious as this. As long as some guy's got a "source" they're unaccountable.

    But don't be afraid to post for fear of jerks who like to pick on newbies, bro.

    Thanks for posting what you have.

    Again, welcome to the forums. Have fun. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Welcome to the Links Uncle Dick.

    It doesn't surprise me to hear something like this about Ed, but I don't think it's something that should be mentioned in the press. Depression sucks and should be kept a private matter.

    I'm not saying that the guy on the radio is right though, he could be just full of shit.

    I can maybe see the suicide thing in a way, but I doubt it because Ed has said in the past his Dad never really saw him get hugely famous and share in ALL of his success, and that he wanted to be around to see Wolfie grow up. I read that in an interview around the "Balance" era after he quit drinking. He was referring to that.

    Before I get started, I just want to say that I've been a long time lurker, and just finally got my own pc a couple of months ago. The links are the best and I have a lot of respect for all the linkers and your passion for our favorite band.

    Having said that, I have been apprehensive to make this first post, knowing as a first timer with no reputation or credibility I'm likely to be flamed big time.

    Oh well, here goes....

    Last Thurs. morning at work I had the radio on. The local morning show goofs, Lewis & Floorwax, were broadcasting from L.A. the day after the Avs/Kings game. Anyway, every morning they have a live Hollywood report phoned in from a guy named Mike Evans. On this day at the end of his report he commented on Ed's recent health announcement then went on to say that a source had told him that over the last couple of years that Ed had contemplated suicide on more than one occasion and that the only reason he is alive is because of Valarie. They then commented on what a genuwine sweetheart Val was and that was the end of the report.

    I e-mailed the station, KRFX 103.5 the Fox, asking for a transcript of the report, but have not recieved a reply. I doubt that they'll send one. I was sure some other linker would have heard the same report. I would imagine that this Mike Evans also calls in to other stations around the region/country. Anybody else ever heard him,or of him?

    Nice to meet ya Uncle Dick.

    Suicide though? Now I know ed has been prone to depression but wow. I just cant see that. The dude has done so much. Allot of people live vicariously through him he has done so much and experienced so many things. I would simply not understand that at all. Your D.J's are some sick pups if they were saying that for ratings.

    Just cant see how that would be possible.

    Welcome Dick, I've heard of Mike Evans. He used to call in to 550 KTRS in St. Louis in the afternoon, but I haven't heard him in a while. I always enjoyed his reports when I heard them.

    I guess the main thing that surprised me was that I thought this guy Mike Evans was perhaps a syndicated reporter and I was the only one to hear his report. That is why I waited a couple of days to post what I had heard. I don't know how many linkers live in the mile high city, much less listen to 103.5 the Fox.

    Anyway, I appreciate the inital support from my fellow linkers.

    I might shuffle this off to the rumor mill now guys, we've kinda found radio dudes arn't terribly reliable (unfortunately), and generally thats where radio rumors go. If there turns out to be any meat in it, We'll move it back to main

    Welcome aboard Uncle Dick BTW, always great to see lurkers make the leap [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......
