    SIDE-NOTE: In all my years of being a Van Halen fan, I have never seen the Dave & Sam hardcores unify the way they did in 1996. They both were pissed off and joined together to let their anger with Ed be known. As Sammy said, "And I'm sorry for Dave too...because he also got screwed over in this entire mess."
    "I had a girl beating on my hotel door all night...She was screaming, crying. Finally, I said, 'What the hell'...and I let her out!"- DLR

    This is now the 2nd person that claims Al was drinking again during this time period (Sass Jordan was the other one).

    I think that Ed might have had a few relapses, but by all accounts, he was sober-ish during the recording of III. And apparently sober in comparison to Al.

    But if we add the fact that Mike didn't play a lot on III, so it seems Ed's playing all the instruments on that record? He's clearly not a Prince/Dave Grohl/Lenny Kravitz type of guy.

    That makes sense. I recently reread an interview with Gary Cherone where he mentioned one of his 1st interactions with AVH was to participate in an intervention on him.

    During the making of VH3, Ed was seeing Val's therapist who was a new age holistic person. I think he too was probably the most sober he had ever been. Doesn't mean 100% but he was just in a weird place. I think like many people with addictions, Eddie replaces them with another. Goes 10000% into it and think he did with this therapist

    Dude, Ed was using. Definitely alcohol, but it was obvious that it was more than that too.

    Well he certainly sucked with NYPD BLUE. That music was a mess.

    Nah, it's not you. It's just that the guy talks like an idiot. Especially the ending...all confusing. When he claimed he never had substance abuse issues himself, I kind of doubted it.

    No, it was a fucking mess like I said before. Impossible to follow, and the guy comes off like a complete fucking idiot. Itís no wonder that album is such a piece of shit.

    It's pretty clear that he was going in as Ed's servant. He had no rock producing credentials. Andy Johns went in with "I did Led Zeppelin records, what do u got?!?!." Bruce Fairbairn had done Aerosmith. Ted Templeman, the Doobies.

    This guy had zero reference a got trampled by Ed. He was out of his element and out of his league. "I'm no genius" - yup, we noticed.
