    Donít know the man, and certainly cannot judge him as a human being. One period, where he clearly ripped off his fans, certainly is a part of the story of the band VH. And should be taken into account when judging the value of what the band has produced as a whole.

    And by the way, Al, Mike, and Sam also have culpability for going out on that tour as well. They surely knew the state he was in (particularly Al and Sam). Mike didnít seem to be much of a part of the making of the songs and the period spent trying to make a record or planning a tour. So he may not have been fully aware of Edís condition when he signed his contract. Donít know that, just saying itís more plausible he didnít know than the other two.
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    4 #1 albums and sold out tours...I'm fairly certain they think fondly of that time period

    10 in a row. Yeah that might be a record. Now I'm curious if it is.

    I think deep down, Eddie does like the albums he wrote with Sammy. He said in the GQ article, "That is some great music. Maybe those songs are away at college." Or something like that. I'm not sure what he means by the college thing, but he did say its some great music.

    Its possible that he is frustrated that his catalog is forever fractured and would rather just avoid the awkward questions and comparisons. Or, maybe he's pissed that almost half of his life's work does not get the respect he thinks it deserves. Who knows?

    Eddie is a nutty guy. Geniuses are always wired a little differently. Thankfully, the odds are extremely good that I'll never meet him, which allows me to always be able to love him for his contributions to music and my life.

    I’m not advocating for Ed, just pointing out we don’t know him or how he acts and treats people on a day to day basis. So easy to judge based on sound bites by those trying to manage their own image as well as things he’s said out of context or in the moment; (like the 96 interview). We don’t know know the whole story or likely even a fraction of it.

    Judge much?
    I couldn't agree more...Well said. As far as the music he wrote and performed with Sam, I'd bet he's very proud of it.

    I think Ed likes the music, but can't tolerate Sammy in any capacity.

    I was surprised he reunited with Roth, because i believed their bad blood was ocean sized.

    But the Sammy thing is unique:
    Something really bad went on between them, a betrayal or percieved betrayal, and Ed
    will never allow a reconciliation.

    Think of all the attempts, on Sam's end.
    Think of the money he would have pocketed doing some sort of Hagar or dual tour reunion.
    And the fact he won't remaster or repackage something like 5150 or OU812?

    I think you're dead on...Something seriously hurtful occurred between them. I hope they can mend the rift someday.

    It's the bar, the book, the credit for the success...it's eveything. They aren't the same guys they were 30 years ago, let alone since 2004.
    They are complete strangers.

    I don't go looking up old high school buddies or co-workers from years ago, cuz if you were going to stay in touch, you would have.
