    Default An idea

    I never start threads here so don't rip on me. Just an idea but not sure how to proceed. Already we have seen some cool interviews and videos, etc of Eddie just in the past 2 days. I know people are posting them in the Pass Away thread but I think with all the traffic, some will be lost. Would it be appropriate to maybe have a thread that only mods or whatever can post cool content or even members if they see fit? Keep discussion in the main Eddie thread but an archive of all the wonderful tributes, interviews, videos, etc so its easily accessible

    Just an idea and if its a bad one, mods you can delete this

    I like the idea. Photos of tributes, interviews, none of our responses except for liking them. A place to go look at everything without all of the complaints and fighting between us. It would be a great place for the ultimate tribute to Edward.

    Also makes me think that maybe stars like Edward should announce their death a couple days ahead of time so they can view how much they were loved the last day(s) of their life. Imagine Ed seeing all of these tributes.

    From what Iíve read in a few places online about the last few days of his life I donít think unfortunately he was in a position to take in any tributes or stuff like that. He knows though how much he was loved by the fans.

    Yup. If he wanted validation from the fans, he would've released some stuff or made some statement. He didn't do that, so that wasn't his priority. I remember 1991 when Freddie Mercury passed away, he was obviously concerned about public perception and made some statements.
    Unless he planed some release for later. Irving Azoff made some statement about this today, but how much of it is him speculating, or how much of it is some official plan, not sure. In the statement it seemed that Irving knew even less about the vaults than we do here at the Links.
    I think unreleased Eddie stuff, as it's so rare, should be kept in a separate thread from the tributes, who are plentiful.

    I 1000% agree with the OP suggestion.

    I miss so many interesting tidbits lost in 60 page threads.

    One thread dedicated to "media" would be enjoyed by me every night.

    I support the idea.
    Frankly speaking I am unable to follow all the threads, and I know i'm missing great videos, pictures and who knows what else. I would appreciate to have a place where I can go thru them when I'm back from work, son is asleep, and I have my own 10 minutes for that
    Be ready for my new amp "III OSIS" produced by H^3 in stores soon [that was funny in 2006]

    Love the idea. Especially if nobody can comment/post except mods. Of course, the mods have to do the work of finding the stuff if that’s the case.

    Would love to get all of it collected in one spot, especially interviews of not only Ed, but tributes and band members would be great!
    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
