    How do you think EVH views himself?

    To me, EVH sees himself as a lucky guy. Also as a talented musician who worked hard in order to become who he is to the fans and the musical industry.

    I believe he knows he's been there and done that and is tired. Tired of the whole thing and tired of being sick....and just wants to live the good life.
    I see nothing wrong with that

    Default How Do You Think EVH Views Himself?

    Iím guessing this one goes about another hour and a half before it becomes a Sam v Dave argument.

    I canít answer how Ed views himself but I can take a stab at how Ed views us.

    Here goes:

    In need of a life.

    Thatís it.

    If Ed is indeed sick, I do hope he in Iceland or some place very cold. (Prevent the spread of the virus)

    I think he is satisfied with what he's done musically and with his place among the guitar greats and is now happy to just be a regular guy. He's never really seemed to care much for playing outside of VH or for any self promotion outside of his gear. If he was unhappy with his perceived legacy he could certainly record, tour, collaborate with others, write a book or whatever else.

    Ed will always view himself as the guy that said:

    Jimmy Page is an excellent producer. Led Zeppelin I and II are classics.

    As a player, he's very good in the studio, but I've never seen him play well live. He's sloppy. He plays like he's got a broken hand and he's two years old. If you put out a good album and play like a two-year-old, what's the purpose?

    I remember reading that quote in either Circus, Creem or Hit Parader back in the early 80s. Not cool.
