There was no love lost when they first met back in the early 1970s. Then there was all of the mudslinging when they parted ways in 1985. Grudges are dumb. Sometimes, age and loss lead to wisdom and perspective. It makes me happy to hear that Dave and Al are in constant communication.
    It's true that there was a hatchet to be buried from those two events but once that's done, you're left with the 13 years in between where they shared a life together riding to the top of the world.

    The thought of Al and Dave talking everyday is a nice one.

    Any chance we could get some confirmation on that from Al?

    Somebody coiuld look for Al driving his Porshche as what was filmed the other day and ask:-)

    Dave is Dave. If he and Al are talking, then I am happy. I think Alex needs to have somebody in his life who he can share memories to. Parents are gone along with Eddie. Unsure of how many people are alive who knew Alex's parents. Obviously Mike and Dave but outside of that, not sure who. Its not like they had cousins over here.

    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    I took the 'my guitar player passed away' comment to be directed at the 15 year olds running MTV who wouldn't know who EVH is. I don't think it was a posthumous shot at Ed just as I don't think Wolf's recent Twitter rant was aimed at Dave.

    Dave is very clever to die his hair the same colour as his scalp.

    Wrong. You are supposed to assign the worst and most nefarious interpretation of anything a former member of the band says about another.

    Most assume Dave in private is the same energy and personality as Dave in front of a camera or on stage... That's really not the case.

    His wit, sarcasm and humor would all be there but dialed back 7-8 spots on the dial. Some of the folks I've spoken to who've been around Dave say he's actually quite calm and laid back for the most part... at times quite quiet and reserved when not in showman mode.

    “My guitarist passed away. He's either in heaven raisin' hell. Or he's in hell, consequently in heaven.

    Read into that as you wish.

    And he would have me say it just like that.

    And I carry on that spirit deliberately."

    That was my reaction to seeing and hearing this come from his mouth....Disrespectful as all hell, Dave....And yes, I couldn’t fathom spending more than a few hours with him. I’d toss the fucker through the nearest window in no time...

    I'm thinking of that video of him at the dog show from years ago.

    He owns the stage and he owns the screen. He is the definition of rock star.

    I still appreciate Dave's schtick and I'm glad he got to hang at the VMAs.

    I do think the "my guitar player" comment was borderline. I get that it was likely tongue-in-cheek, but it didn't really stick the landing considering the context.

    Agreed. Borderline, definitely.

    He’s held back all this time (presumably because he’s so grief stricken) and he chose that moment to mention Eddie being dead?
