    This sucks. I can't stand it anymore.
    I grew up with this band. Eddie's music changed my life.
    VH was the best. Timeless music. Timeless innovation. Timeless Rock N Roll.

    Now it's just the remnants of a bad soap opera.

    This divorce is just the final nail in the coffin.
    Valerie is one hell of a woman. She put up with a LOT of Eddie's shit over the years. She must have just reached a point where she was going to lose her sanity.

    This sucks. Eddie is so gifted, and like most gifted people, he has an addictive dark side which will most likely destroy him.

    THIS REALLY, REALLY SUCKS.

    I'm broken hearted. Everything I grew up with is being torn down. It's like the whole fucking world is past it's peak. Just look around!

    It is a very depressing situation all the way around. I keep thinking about how Wolfie must be feeling. His world has to be totally blown apart right now.

    How much closer is this whole thing going to have to crawl into the gutter before Ed just calls it quits?!?!

    I hope it doesn't come to that. I still have faith that the day will come where I will walk into a music store and by the latest Van Halen album and line t purchase tickets for their next concert. Who's with me on this one? Please their must be some of you still out there. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    from where we are sitting it DOES seem that Eddie's life is in the shitter right now. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Hey, he made it 20 years with her, and I usually last only 6 months with a girl--relationships are hard, and marriage is even tougher.

    no singer
    no record deal
    cancer
    dwindling fan base
    wife leaves

    talk about the weight of the world

    from where I'm sitting it just looks like all the bad shit started for Eddie around the time they were getting ready to record "Balance" and just kept building, thru the reunion fiasco, thru the release of 3, on thru the cancer and possible reunion the next time around.

    It also looks that although Eddie "claims" to not want to do anything with Roth and Hagar(and from what it really looks like -Roth) instead of REALLY moving on from them and doing his own thing no matter WHAT ANYONE said(like he claimed he was doing) he actually let this grudge fester in him and it eventually ate him. Eddie really does need to make some peace in his life. The "thing" that Eddie carries with him to make him want to drink and close doors in his life is NOT healthy, and I fear that he has one of those Hollywood shrinks that is doing nothing to help but rather just sucking his money out of him.

    then again, I don't know the guy, but I know the routine rather well.

    remember that time when Eric Clapton shut the world off for a few years? Yes, he was abusing H, but it was everything else too. Even George Harrison(a guy who had the right to NOT help) would go over to Eric's house and try to help him.
    I think Eddie is going thru the same thing Clapton did. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    it could always be worse---see a homeless person

    Well lets hope it doesn't get to that stage for Ed. The bottom line is that he still has his son alive and well, Eric didn't.

    Yeah...

    I feel sorry for the guy.

    For someone who has given the world so much with his music, it's sad to see him go thru so many obsticles in his life. Alcohol, drugs, cancer, now this...

    He deserves better, but like most artist, he has his demons and it appears, right now, they are winning...

    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    I know that it is a very bad and private thing for Ed. I wish that he could know how many people still care and hope that he can get through this. I know he still has and will continue to have alot of supporters here on this site. But as for VH I cannot help but think that it is the end. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    I'm sure most of the people on this board is pretty bummed about VH going 'down in flames'. Sometimes, things need to hit rock-bottom before they start going their way. I guess we can say that Eddie has indeed hit 'rock bottom'. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    I don't succomb to this "oh woh is Eddie" crap.

    Over the last 30 years, the guy has had every advantage in life that 99.99% of people in the world haven't had and will never have.

    I don't hate the guy or his family, or wish him or them ill will. But frankly, unless he makes some music that I like in the future, or tours with Roth again, I don't care. And I think I speak for a vast majority of past/present everyday VH fans.

    He made some great timeless music in collaboration with DLR (and some good tunes with Hagar too). I have the records. They're great. Dave tours, and I'll pay to see that mofo any time. As for Eddie, who the heck knows...

    It seems like everyday something negative happens in the world of Van Halen. One day, it's no record label. The next, it's no lead singer. Now, it's no family to support Ed. Frankly, I'd chop off my own hand to hear some new music from these guys, but music truly is secondary or tertiary right now compared to getting people's lives back together. No way I'd take new music over a happy, healthy and worry-free Ed right now. As much as people bash the guy, I can't help but feel a whole hell of a lot of heartache for Ed. We want new music, we want him to communicate with his fans, but damn, what is there to say right now? Who knows how long all this crap has been going on? Call me a sheep or whatever you will, but Ed's got my support always. Somebody sign me up for a cot or something up on Howdy Doody Mountain.

    EVH has had music longer than almost anything else...that includes wife and child (NOT a negative comment on family). He won't give up music because it is a part of him, kinda like oxygen is part of anyone's existence.
