  • Eddie's Baaaaack!

    OK, so this may be old news to some of you, but now that EVH is out of rehab he's inked a deal with Fender to produce 300 replicas ($25k a pop) of his Frankenstrat. He also now has his own EVH line of amps, the 5150 III, and indicates more guitar offerings are on the way. Physically, this is the healthiest I think I've seen Ed look in years and years. But, will it last? Here are my thoughts:

    - The 25k guitar deal is a money-making scheme and nothing more. Meant only for collectors. WHY would Ed do this after the Charvel Art Series guitars, which are basically the same guitar, only un-reliced? I can't imagine this guy ever needing the dough. Besides, wasn't one of his reasons for doing the EB/MM and Peavey Wolfgang guitars was to offer a high quality, highly playable guitar at a decent price?

    - Has anyone here played the 5150 III amps? I'd love tos ee a combo offered. I'd guess these amps are based on the Soldano sound also?

    - Will Ed stay fit and focused and put out some new music with Van Halen (or anyone)? And I'm not talking porn soundtracks either. I was very disappointed that he couldn't get sober enough to tour in 2007.

    - When will finally stop playing stupid wino/druggie rockstar and ackknowledge what he truly is: The Greatest Guitarist Ever?

    I wouldn't say he's "back", Fender just decided it was the right time for them to produce these overpriced relics. What does Ed have going on? Absolutely nothing of merit. This is actually old news and the release was supposed coincide with the VH tour Ed was too junked out to do. I'm sure Fender is pretty pissed about that.

    As for "best guitarist of all time"? He hasn't been relevant for the past 15 years. He's just another drunk celebrity to laugh at...running around town all toothless and whatnot.

    Come on man, find some respect for yourself. If you are going to be a junkie at least do it in the privacy of your own home. If you do go out, don't forget your teeth.

          He needs to dedicate himself to being sober for the next year maybe more.I feel sorry for him.If he keeps getting handed deals like this he'll probably never face the fact that he's a full blown polysubstance abuser and have any chance at recovery.Poor guy's infor a heavy dose of reality if he drinks or drugs again he may not make it.Good luck Eddie,be true to yourself

                He looks pretty good. New teeth and 'dew work wonders. Hope he comes back. The rock scene seems pretty dead (or dull and repetitive). It would be great to see him back. Greatest guitar player ever? I don't think so IMO, but he was one of few guitar players who changed the genre in his time, and he was a great guitarist, even if not the best. I'll give him credit for that.

                  That's the best I've seen EVH look in many, many years.

                  Good luck to him, although I think the $25,000 Frankenstrat scam is bull****************.

                          Thats the best he's looked since the Balance tour.
                          I really hope he stays clean.
