    In all fairness not everyone is into the social media thing of having to comment on everything that happens in the world. It's not required and doesn't weigh against them.

    Luke did post a nice pic of he and Ed with a few heartfelt words. They were close. That kind of pain is private.

    I agree.

    No one should be taking names to see who has or hasn't commented on any particular social media platform.

    When I was on FB, I would either message (or text on the phone) happy birthday wishes to friends. Once I was asked why I never wished any friends happy birthday.

    I said, I always wish friends happy birthday. You just don't see it.

    I'm not comparing wishing someone happy birthday with offering condolences, but just because the public doesn't see it, doesn't mean it wasn't offered, or won't be offered.
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

    I don’t care who hasn’t commented, but I’m certainly humbled by who has. We all know the impact Eddie has had, of course we do, we’re fans, but when I see all these people somber and caring, some who knew him well and some who hardly knew him of at all.
    He had a reach he never understood. I don’t think he ever knew the kind of impact he had on so many people.
    That private man, the shy guy, the one who pushed the public eye away, that guy was not reality. He fought demons, and yet at the end of the ride, I think he found more peace and solace then he had ever had in his life. I think the last 11 years may have been his very best, and his exit was with the people that loved him the most and knew him the best.

    Edward, I wish life was more like those last 11 years for you, but know that you made millions of lives better, let us know when that seventh seal gets cracked and we’ll light up the sky

    Edward, finally unchained, love you

    A spiritual one from Carlos Santana. Beautiful. As expected.

    I look at a comment similar to Wooderson when he found out Mitch didn't have a joint (Dazed and Confused) He wasn't pissed. He wasn't mad but it sure would have been a lot cooler if he had the joint. Yes people don't need to respond but if you do, you get a thumbs up from me because you are going out of your way. If you don't its cool too. Just not as cool :-)

    You could say the only one that would truly make a big difference, and maybe even bring a bit of comfort to Al, is if Eric Clapton made a comment.

    Amazing interview. So glad that they were talking right up until the end. And it is clear that Ed suffered a lot and was in a lot of pain, and it wasn’t just for a couple days. For that I’m glad he’s at peace.

    Seems like Clapton was always a bit of a dismissive prick when it came to Ed, which is a shame.

    Totally. I don’t get his whole attitude about it at all. He never really seemed to appreciate Ed as a musician or what he himself meant to Ed. I’m not a Clapton fan at all so basically he can go fuck himself for that over the years. I do know that he is sick now as well so who knows what he really feels at this point.

    Obviously, he had no real interest in Ed's style of playing, but that really shouldn't have mattered. Clapton should have been grateful that he himself had been such an inspiration to Ed.

    I had not heard Clapton is sick. Honestly, been awhile since I heard anything from him.

    I agree with you and Brett....I also wondered if he felt threatened by Edward? Eddie was clearly the new "hot" thing on the block and maybe Clapton did not like that he was being passed over? I have never understood the hate either.....in Ed's later years (say the last 10 or so) it would have been cool if the two of them could have sat down.
