    I gotta admit, I have never been an Eddie fan. I thought he came off extremely good here though. Humble. Has let age takes it course (grey hair and all). He does not come off like the epic douche he has appeared to be for decades. It even makes bringing his son into the band a nice thing. I find the asian interview chick very boneable as well. Something about those thick legs and 70s hair.

    Watched it last night. Good stuff. Amazing talent that has let the bottle high jack his career for yrs. The effects of alcohol & drugs makes even the most capable feel insecure and defensive. That is how Eddie came off for yrs. Glad to see he has stayed sober I just wish he would put out more fresh music. Not a fan of the last Van Halen record but I would love for him to grow old gracefully and put out some great solos albums. In the mold of Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin.

    Great interview, and I think he looks great. He's an older man what do you think he should look like? Howard and his jet black hair. Lol

    It's a bit of a shock if you compare it to how he looked during the last tour just 2 years ago. It would seem more natural if these guys would just age gracefully without dyeing their hair for years then just suddenly stopping one day.

    See: Keith Richards

    Real good interview. Enjoyed that.

    When he was a stoner, he could not get three words out. Here, he is actually interesting to listen to.
