That's a good interview actually. It sounds like both Ed and Dave are just out of their minds with not getting along (I believe they are BOTH dopes) and there's poor Michael who just wants to play music. Ok, Dave is nuttier than Eddie by a tad, but Eddie looks much worse.

It's on my desktop at work. I've asked a few people, "Recognize this guy? He's a famous rocker", and no one has recognized him yet! LOL When I tell people who he is, the reaction is always "What happened to him?!"

Re: Dead Man Walking! No...seriously!

Here is the real reason why left Peavey (copied from the eddievanhalen.com forum).

Quote:
For legal reasons I cannot name the person I have spoken to here, or tell you were we spoke:

This snatch of a conversation comes direct from the mouth of a person quite high up in the company (Peavey) that I had the privilage of meeting and dining with earlier on today (it's amazing what who you can meet through networking)

"When EVH heard that we had signed Joe Satriani he basically threw a huge hissy fit and took the huff, especially when he heard that the Satriani amp was planned to replace the 5150 as the companies hi end amplifier. Not long after, he decided that renewing his contract would not be in his best interest"

Later on in our conversation (and after a few more glasses of wine) this little gem was dilivered:

"Of course you know that originally Ed was going to make his signature amp with Soldano, Hartley offered him more money, so he took the design he came up with along with Soldano and walked"

We also discussed the Charvel deal (apparently this was Ed's attempt at being petulant and also to try to get more money from Peavey to stop him walking - finacially this was not a viable option for the company at the present time)
So much for a G3 tour featuring Ed.

Regards

André
