    Also posted in Ed's passing thread..

    By chance, I got talking to someone last week who has been a reporter for the Enquirer, People, US Weekly etc.

    The subject of Ed's passing came up and they said that they hadn't spoken to Ed in years but that the Enquirer put a bounty on Ed's head during '02-'04 payable to anyone who could get him to talk.

    She said she just got his number, called it and he picked up. Ed flirted with her a lot and long story short, she got a full on the record conversation with him which led to a meeting.

    She chose not to tell the enquirer about it and collect the money.

    Reason? (and reason for posting) is that even she, an 'extremely cynical hack' (her words) could not believe how bad shape he was in. She said that the drug addiction had completely got hold of him.

    She said that she couldn't expose him in that condition and that VH fans should be very grateful for 07-15 as it's nothing short of a full on miracle (in her opinion) that he didn't pass away in '04.

    You know, I'm a 100% Sam guy, but if Dave wants to take a shot at Sam that's fine, it's just poor timing. Sam has always been the asshole in the DLR-Sam feud and I'm baffled so many think differently.

    1.When he joined the band in 1986 he made derogatory remarks about DLR as a singer, which is unheard of from a replacement, because they don't usually want to alienate the fanbase. I believe this a primary cause of the intense animosity that has existed within the fanbase since then.
    2.When Dave briefly rejoined in 1996, he was diplomatic to Sam on Stern, while Sam said fans should throw tomatoes at DLR in concert if he tried to sing any of his songs.
    3.When the 2002 started, DLR basically equated his era and Sam's, which must have been incredibly hard to do considering his ego, saying (paraphrasing) "you've heard either me or Sam blasting out of pickup trucks for years". Sam on the other hand went to the press and called him and asshole, and made fun of him for wearing a wig.
    4.The only comment from DLR that even alluded to Sam during the reunion was a comment about "a lot of great alumni" that had come through the band. In 2015 Sam mocked Dave's vocals on TD, when he wasn't even asked about the album by the interviewer. After that, DLR started slagging back.
    5.Last year Rogan was bashing the Sam era and trying to get DLR to do the same, but he simply made more diplomatic remarks. Sam then said he "doesn't respect Dave's artistry" and was mocking his Vegas shows on IG earlier this year.

    So, Sam is the instigator in this particular feud, but this is awful timing from Dave.

    Everything you said plus--on the 2007-2008 Reunion tour, I only heard Dave zing him once. During one of the ATBL breakdowns he made a crack, something like "I've been to the eeeeedge...I stood and looked down....who's that down there? That Sammy Hagar?" One time out of several shows I saw and many bootlegs. However, Dave did bust his balls hardcore live on Stern in '02 for the "Heavyweight Champs of Rock 'N' Roll" promotion when Sammy was talking to them even way more bright and early PST.

    Yet still so strange and fucked up that Dave said this during these times (or even the annoyingly repetitive "during these uncertain times" in reference to the Rona). There's got to be a reason.

    According to him he had an agreement to document footage from the time when Ed was in his darkest place until the early parts of the reunion with Dave. The video of him during that time will not be flattering to say the least. He then tried to release the stuff against the wishes of Ed and Van Halen, the entity. From the outside it clearly looks like a guy that was capitalizing on a guy's worst moments and trying to make himself a buck. While this site isn't officially associated with VH in any way, we've been thrown bones from time to time, so besides not wanting to jeopardize that, it's also morally gross to let that guy get his 15 minutes of fame by taking advantage of someone with clear addiction issues.

    It should also be noted that he lost in court several times trying to get the ability to release this stuff, so there's a legal aspect to it as well.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
