    Just wondering what would VH have to do to pull out of this death spiral they seem so hellbent on travelling...

    Seems like the most obvious and logical explanations as to what's been going on, basic communication from the band and starting the promotion for the next record have just been seriously abandoned.

    I'm just sick and tired of this "hurry up and wait" process. Does anyone out there think that VH can make this a POSITIVE thing or do we hear the Grim Reaper on his horse?

    This may be wildly off topic, but it struck me today (then I got up [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]).

    It seems like the more stable Edward is personally with his drug/alcohol demons, the less stable the band is.

    When he sobered up he says he got a better idea of Sam's lyrics, and that caused problems that ended that tenure. And all those problems lead to the great year of many VH lead singers in 1996.

    Anyway, just a thought that isn't very developed.

    I would say Eddie start drinking again! But that would just be mean, and cruel. Glenn does seem to have a point though
    I am awesome

    I think the problem is Eddie is thinking too much. In his old articles he always said he never thought that much and just let things flow. Now he has changed and he's putting too much thought into everything. Over analyzing things can be a crutch. I think he needs to take some of his old advice and be a little less intense.

    Substance abuse does seem to internalize Eddie's demons. I don't know that any of us can really say anything more than that on the subject.

    Those that know him well might be able to toss in some insight, but they shouldn't.

    I think you guys are right about Eddie thinking too much.


    remember when they just went in and made albums in a few weeks time????

    left the mistakes on it--i never knew the difference.

    the thought of Eddie sobering up and realizing Sammy's lyrics were terrible always makes me smile. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I agree Bru, the excitement is lost.

    "We get to the hotel, there's people partyin' in the parking lot, people gettin' down in the elevator, wow! I swear to God I had this one chick, this chick was poundin' on my door, she was kickin' and screamin' at my door 'til about 6:30 this morning. Finally, I just said, 'Fuck it!' and let her out of my room!" - David Lee Roth

    This is why I really wish that DLR and Ed could work things out. Remember what Dave has said about the way things were in 96 ?

    The whole "shut up and plug in" mentality. Ed was against that. But that is what Ed, Alex, and Mike need to do with DLR. It might even help to go to a different studio and do this. Maybe Ed is somewhat of a hermit and fixed in his ways in his 5150 studio. Just a thought.........
