    For clarification purposes: Before the HACK where we lost all the AWESOME
    tour info on here, I had printed that review by 9on10scale to keep in my scrapbook.
    So, I actually got it from this website originally. He was there and wrote that within a few days after "THE EVENT". He is a VERY reliable source,
    he is Sammy's nephew and ONLY occasionally posts here.
    So, this is not a rumor or speculation and OLO concurs, so you know it's
    fact....."smile". OLO is also reliable.
    If others have a hard time accepting that "the hero" has issues related to his alcoholism and find denial of reality easier, then that is their issue.
    Sometimes people have a hard time dealing with the reality when their "idols" have serious problems. The brain is great at denial.

    The guitar in that picture is from the Hamilton show a few weeks before the final show in Tucson. I had a 5 star for that show and had front row seats. During Up For Breakfast, Eddie lay down on the ground right near me. Anyway, his chord came out of the guitar and he couldn't get it back in as the song started. He got really upset and went beside his cabinets to go off stage to get another guitar and before he got the new one, he smashed the Charvel. The winning bidder on that guitar got the broken neck, plus a new one with the guitar fixed up properly and everything, and the message written on the body by Eddie.

    Today I watched an MPEG video of Ed destroying his guitar at the final show.....he just looked pissed, smashed the hell out of it...thru it in Sam's directions, just looked around, gestured towards Sam and said something into the mic....waved at the crow and calmly walked off of stage.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Oh my god - I've just saw the video....was that it? That is what all the posts, theories. counter - theories have been about??!!?!? Jesus - that was NOTHING! Why do people be as pessimistic as possible about this band? That truly was the biggest let down - after all the posts I was expecting Ed to be running around naked, with Devil horns growing out his head, salivating at the mouth with both fists clenched ready to take on the rest of the band.....jesus - he even smiles and gives a thumbs up at the end.

    What is wrong with people?
    Ed: Actually, the last record I bought was by a band called Brand X
    Al: I make my living by viciously attacking something
    Mike: ...actually I don't drink.
    Sammy: Are these yours Eddie?
    Dave: Look at that ankle - dirty girl!

    HEY!!! I can't view it either!
    Somebody PLEASE...(I know there are great computer techs on this board)...please post it somewhere that we can view it with Media Player or Real Player. I've wondered about this incident since I first heard about it.
    I still believe 9's comments about the backstage stuff though.
    Thanks !!!!!

    It's not that big a deal to be honest. A bit of Pete Townsend. I suppose the thought of Ed doing something like that, which he's never really done before seems strange to some,. All I can think is "Ed NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!.. That lovely Wolfgang!!!!"

    I think Ed is frustrated... He was headed in a direction that most
    haven't accepted and I think that has got to him alittle bit. To
    me, even IAT and LTS isn't old Van Halen like.... Listen to the
    instrumental from Twister.... It's ashame things haven't worked
    out better.
