    1. An acknowledged alcoholic, coke addict, liar, adulterer, and very public chain smoker for 30+years suddenly being criticized as a bad role model.

    2. EVH appears at a CHARITY event, finally talks about Van Halen and now he's the villain.

    No, he's been the villian since 1996. It's just that most of us fans thought he would wisen up and get his shit straight. I guess we were wrong. Shame on us.

    Besides being "An acknowledged alcoholic, coke addict, liar, adulterer, and very public chain smoker for 30+years suddenly being criticized as a bad role model", I did not know Ed was also good at Ironing [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Oh, Irony? Sorry, I thought he said Ironing. I'm sure Val's got him trained to do that too [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    I never had much faith in Eddie getting it together. He's never struck me as a particularly great person: a great guitar player no doubt, but weak, easily led and increasingly bitter. He's probably surrounded by people who tell him how great he is, and doesn't have much sense of reality.

    I mean how stupid can you get as far as PR goes. You win over an increasingly hostile fanbase by saying you have cancer, and then two weeks later you're finally seen in public, smoking and with your 10 year old son. It's just crazy - and too bad it was at a charity event which should have scored postively.

    I don't for one minute believe Dave is a better human being. But at least he understands how to fake it in public. The most I was ever hoping for out of this was an orchestrated show of public unity, a good album and 2 hours of live magic where all the real problems can be temporarily put aside. That's all I care about Eddie isn't my friend and I wouldn't want him as one.

    Jonathan, this is a damn good post for a Godless, pot smoking, heathen such as yourself. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] I concur with all you said here in this post.

    Personally I have never found ANY musician to be that great of a person. Not Dave, not Ed, not Sam and certainly not Al. Mike seems like a genuinely nice guy, but who knows.

    hey...aren't you a musician? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] But yeah I agree. Fortunately (for me) it's always been irrelevant to the music they make.
