Eddie Van Halen and LL Cool J on Piers Morgan Right Now...Ed Not Making Piers Happy
cnn | 5/3/2013

Posted on 05/03/2013 6:38:47 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache

Eddie Van Halen is on Piers Morgan with LL Cool J and Piers was just gushing all over LL Cool J for beating the crap out of a burgular and Eddie says..."If a guy breaks into my house his face will be smashed with an UZI."

Piers didn't care for that and after the commercial says he will be coming back to talk about this "bombshell".

Ed is a big gun owner.

Ed just guaranteed his drug trubles (past hopefully) will ensure Jerry Brown’s Brownshirts (Oh the irony) at his Cali residence.

You know I didn’t even think about that...too true. Piers stayed away from the topic after the break...you could totally tell Ed didn’t give a crap what Piers was gonna say about owning guns. I remember when Ed got busted 2 decades ago because he forgot he had his glock in his suitcase at the airport...I wanna say it was LAX.

Okay, get it right, he didn’t say his “face would be smashed with an uzi”, he said he would be “facing an uzi”. Why would you smash someones face when you’re holding an uzi?

Seriously.

I think it was.

I think he got his meth problem sorted and was never arrested, but he did rehab. In Cali. So it comes down to does he still have enough clout to overcome the coming demonization. It aint the 80s anymore and Ed lost many fans over the Hagar/Anthony fiasco.

I did get it right...he said smashed with an uzi because LL Cool J smashed the face of the burglar of his house and Eddie then said that breaking into his house he would be smashed in the face with an uzi. Basically saying yeah he couldn’t inflict the physical harm that LL could on a burglar so Ed would instead use his Uzi.

Go, Eddie! Tell 'em about it!

Eddie NEVER did meth. Booze, pot and coke, yeah, but he's been running clean for years now.

Janie's got him squared away now, and he's rockin' with Wolfie and the gang. TG.

You sure about that? I am almost positive. The teeth were classic meth before he got them fixed. I could be wrong but...

Regardless, I hope he is clean permanently. Kidding adide the guy redefined an instrument.

He had cancer of the mouth and/or tongue.

Maybe that’s why.

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE VH/Eddie. From VH1-5150 I probably wore out 2 albums/cassettes each.

But O like Steve Vai a lot more...(ducking and running...;)

I can say meth is one of the few 'items' I never heard of the band sampling that junk, if Ed took up with it the way his addictive personality would have led him to, it would have killed him.

He had one third of his tongue removed as it was cancerous. His teeth were not photogenic, but oh well.

I know he always had bad teeth but there were several pix that looked exactly like meth mouth. It was around the time he had bottomed out. I know he had an alcohol problem and some drugs. There’s just something that sticks in my head about it. I dunno why. Like I said, maybe I am wrong, and with so many people saying no, I most likely am.

That's completely understandable, after all, Vai is the best EVH tribute guitarist there is. No one rips off Eddie as well as Stevie Vai. (snickers snarkily)

One of my acquaintances here in Hollywood used to be one of the set guys for the Hot for Teacher video so he’s been to a lot of videos back in the 80’s to 90’s.

He told me that aside from Guns N Roses and Kiss, only Van Halen groupies were the hottest he’s seen. It’s like they knew where the video was being shot and an entire 1000 people would just show up. And it’s true Eddie Van Halen was self-disciplined enough to say no to them as he was married to Bertinelli.

I think the way it went down Eddie found himself accidentally addicted to crystal meth because it was often found in the street cocaine he was buying. When he is sober, he definitely still has it. Hopefully this time it will last.

I made it through 5150 but after that ... Wasn’t VH. 5150 wasnt either but it was good on it’s merits IMO.

VH needed DLR to ‘be’ VH.

Thanks. I needed that. I hadn’t heard much from Eddie and wondered if his talent had left him. Then I clicked on the video from last year playing Eruption at Charlotte 2012. Unreal. I can’t believe he can still play like that. For that alone, he deserves my decades of hero worship. And for Panama...and most of 5150.

Firstly, I have to say HOLY SH!T, this is the only thread ever devoted to the Mighty Van Halen since I've been here, and that's been a while! Yay!

I don't know if you've visited the Van Halen News Desk, but there's lots of good stuff there!

Me too. They seemed less "edgy" and just too mainstream. That may have been their goal, and they sold a lot of albums, but I just didn't care for it.
