    No doubt. I hate the fact that the one man on earth whom I bend the knee to artist-wise, celebrity-wise, turns out to be a complete dick.

    After 2004 when it was revealed that Ed didn't want Mike. Blew my whole image from then on. I was still a fanboy up to that point.

    In lighter news Sammy Hagar has theoretically discovered the second way to rock.

    I'm still an EVH fanboy. I just don't wear blinders anymore. Particularly after limp-dicking Mike in '07.

    They just seemed so chummy during the Hagar years. Like true friends and normal guys.

    Sadly it’s all bullshit.

    Glad Sammy and Mike are still buddies.

    Sounds like Alex was the worst of the bunch, which surprised me.

    Monk mentions that Alex & Dave were the only guys he wanted on the radio,
    to do interviews.

    He said Mike had nothing to say, and Ed was usually asleep or fixing a guitar.

    In the interview, he said Van Halen were all great guys in the beginning, but by the end,
    they were coked out, vindictive assholes.

    Ouch!

    True role models who are worthy of our adulation for being good human beings are hard to find. This is why I am so grateful for my parents.

    It wasn't bullshit in the beginning. They were all tight for the first two and a half tours, Eddie and Sammy in particular.

    Then Eddie pulled his weirdo lead singer rivalry horseshit again, same thing he did with Dave.

    I'm not sure why EVERYONE has to be there, if they do a ton of research and
    talk to those that were.

    Having said that, i really enjoyed Noel's perspective.
    Yep, you're right.

    There would be thousands upon thousands of history books that would never be written if everyone thought with such a narrow minded view like that.
