Yeah, it's all very odd. I suspect there's been a band 'implosion'. This is pure speculation on my part, but the evidence would suggest that Eddie is a 'difficult person' to work with and he's not over his alcohol and goodness-knows-what-else abuse, despite his brush with throat cancer.

Unfortunately, it looks like EVH's productive years are gone and I'd be (pleasantly) surprised to see a new, decent album from him again. A great shame.

It was fun to watch, but lets see if people go to the shows and buy the albums. I watched all of the episodes, but when my friend asked if I wanted to get tix for the INXS concert, I was "ehhh... nah". I have no plans to buy the album either

Thats a complete rumor. VH's spokesperson said they had no plans to do anything of that nature. As of now, Sammy isn't really in the band and neither is Micheal Anthony. Sammy is doin his own thing and is about to release a new record soon while MA is singing/playing bass for a Lynch supergroup of some sorts. Ed hasn't really lost his touch, the man can get it just like he did in the old days. The only thing holding him back now is his alcoholism. He's too drunk to ever do much of anything. I don't really care if I hear anything new from a half deaf, hobo fashion designin, alcoholic.

Hey slow down, bro. if you play guitar you're probably using a lot of licks and techniques of this 'half deaf, hobo fashion designin, alcoholic' without even knowing it. You should thank him everytime you play a (tapping) lick someone has copied from Ed :evil:

First off, why would EVH go to Cow Town Guitars? That's a small shitty hole in the wall Guitar store when he could go to Sam Ash which is a few feet from it? :wink: I use to live right down the street from them and wouldnt even walk across the street to go there lol.
