    Look, all I was doing was stating an opinion, end of story. I apologize if I am not up on every little detail of the band. I enjoy them, had a few questions, that's it.

    Basically, we are on the same side in that we enjoy their music. I have my personal opinions about them but will keep those out, since it appears to have hit a nerve. My apologies.

    No need to apologize for daring to start some conversations. That's what the message board is for.

    Your personal VH ops certainly shouldnít hit any nerves. Donít let us fanboys piss in your Cheerios.

    My point was that your questions were easily answered if youíd skimmed just a few of the standard long term threads, rather than fire up new ones simply because you donít take the time for some minor research.

    Youíre not wrong about Eddie and Alex not giving a fuck lol.

    Eddie has mental issues.

    Love his music, but it's obvious he deals with some problems.

    A-OK. I still listen to his music nearly every day.

    I think that pretty much sums it all up there.

    I am almost hesitant to go further with this reply, lest I be accused of thinking that EVH "owes me something."

    I am kinda tired of hearing that pat response, since there isn't a person on this board who feels that EVH owes anyone anything.

    I also know that the guys have worked hard; that they have earned their retirement, and to this sentiment I wholly agree.

    I am also sure that someone might come up with: "just because EVH doesn't proceed in the way that you think that he should, doesn't mean that he's wrong and you're right." This too, is true.

    Now that we've gotten all of that out of the way , here are a few examples that bring joy to the viewer's heart, along with the education and inspiration that's necessary to perpetuate music in younger generations:





    It'd be cool if we saw this from EVH. He doesn't "owe" us this; he doesn't "have" to do this, etc., but it'd sure be cool to see. Why? Because he's a very likeable guy who's so good at what he does .
    Well, Ed puts out a lot of gear that brings a lot of joy to many guitarists. He's always been a tinkerer.

    The only thing VH owes me is when they sell a concert ticket or an album. I expect to get a concert and a CD in that jewel case for my money, but that's the end of the transaction. If I like it I'll come back for more, which I have to date. Them not being engaged with fans during their down times (and the frequency of those down times) only hurts their own lifestyle as they can't charge as much the next time when an entire generation of people has forgotten their importance.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    That's a fair point. What I meant to say, is that the guy has a good sense of humor, and is a natural storyteller. All of this is moot, however; he clearly isn't interested in doing anything.

    Agreed. Even though I don't play, tone wise, I think the Wolfgang series of guitars are among the best sounding.

    Again...I am not looking to dog the guy; I simply wish that he was out there more. Few have the creativity that EVH has; I appreciate his work that much; it goes no further than that.

    I was confused by Squalens, and GlennyVH's avatar. I thought VS lost his mind and was arguing with himself.

    Even laying your head down, hurts.

    I haven't had it in a while, but it shows up at random times.
    I had that a few years ago, finally manifested itself as 2 ruptured discs in my neck between C5/6/7.
    Within 2 weeks, I couldn't bear to even exist.
    Just short of 4 weeks, I had surgery (doc said it was the same thing Peyton Manning had) and when I woke up: Pain gone.

    There have been some side effects, but they are worth it to get rid of that pain.
