    Thread title "Ken Burns: I'm not sure that I respect Eddie Van Halen" is vastly different than what he said. He didn't say he doesn't respect him, he's being very granular saying he doesn't respect him to a certain level in comparison to some other musicians. That's very different. Reminds me of the yahoo news headlines I read, then see the article isn't that extreme.

    You only get so much room to type a thread title, folks. The OP couldn't put the entire paragraph in the title for context. You get the full story when you read the post, just like a newspaper headline.

    The whole quote was printed in the first post.

    He doesn’t respect Ed enough to compare him to other visionaries .
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Okay, I don't respect Ken Burns in the way that I respect actual historians. He's an easily swayed hack with little or no historical training making weighty and influential documentaries with little or no input from actual historians. He perpetuates the myth of "The Lost Cause" distancing slavery from the central impetus of the Civil War.

    Like him, love him, or hate him - Ed revolutionized guitar for better or worse...

    Just like Ken Burns revolutionized documentary making that is nostalgic and historically misleading, inaccurate shit....

    Default Ken Burns: I'm not sure that I respect Eddie Van Halen

    I wouldn’t imagine Ken Burns would think anything of Eddie Van Halen. He’s a pretentious asshole.

    By the way I use iMovie all the time when I do my guitar videos, and I hate the Ken Burns effect and never use it.

    Ummm...Shelby Foote is/was a highly regarded Civil War Historian.

    I haven’t watched anything else Burns has done, but the Civil War doc is outstanding.

    Not sure who this Ken guy is, yet do know that not everyone is obligated to worship Eddie Van Halen. He might not know the history or the innovations/importance? Many don't, or that it's been so long that they take it for granted. Then again, artists often only follow other musicians within there own genres. Many country players might genuinely not know about a hard rock pioneer? Same with blues, etc. Clapton even said that Eddie wasn't a true blues player. They don't "get" Edward the way we do, kind of like how Ed said he never listens to music on the radio. Perhaps an overstatement, yet the gist is there - he doesn't care/nor do they.
