    Default I look forward to seeing Wolfgang

    I'm as disappointed as the next CVH fan that this isn't going to be a true full reunion and it does suck that MA won't be touring. I think we've all known for a long time that CVH would never truly come back. I know that I don't feel the same about VH -- or music in general -- as I did back in the great '80s and even if they did reform it simply wouldn't be the same. Too much time has passed.

    Having said that, I look forward to seeing Wolfgang play. I remember the day that I heard he was born. I fell asleep, as I recall, on a Sunday night and the CNN report of his birth woke me up. I thought "Can't wait to hear *this* kid jam."

    I believe that Eddie, at least in part, inherited his chops from his dad. Let us not forget that Wolfgang is a Van Halen. A *young* Van Halen. I'm willing to give new blood a chance. Being Eddie's son, he may be one of the few people that can actually talk some sense to the old man without getting his ass kicked, figuratively speaking.

    Will I go to the show? Absolutely. Will it be the VH that I loved in 1984? Of course not. Sadly, that band is gone forever.

    Let the flames begin.

    Not me. It's not going to stop me from going,but if Ed refused to do it with Mike they should have at least hired a true professional bass player. Wolfie just helps to make the whole thing Mickey Mouseish.

    You seriously recall the detailed account of how you learned of Wolfgang's arrival?

    can't wait either, let's not forget this kid INSPIRED Eddie to get back on the road.

    that's what I'm looking for.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    I do because it woke me up. I waited for it to be reported again so I could be sure of what I'd half heard.

    No... I actually had hope that CVH would come back at some point. And that point was this year... however... they removed one member... and now it is not CVH. Never did I ever imagine this is how a Roth comeback would go down.

    The only reason Dave is back is so that they have a selling point. Cause Wolfie, Ed and Al and some jerk off lead singer, wouldn't sell as many tickets as... Dave, Wolfie, Ed and Al! Because in the grand scheme of things to the average buyer... Mikey is just the bass player.

    I don't want Wolfie there to talk sense into his daddy. that's not the bassist's job. Alex should have punched his brother in the face a long time ago and said, "Straighten up, Bro!!!". And that is another reason why Ed wants Wolfie there... because he is now in almost full control of this band.

    Now to the next issue...WHO GIVES A FUCK IF WOLFIE IS TALENTED???. I'm sure the kid is good, I don't doubt that! But he does not belong in a Classic Reunion with Roth... period. If Ed wants to write a new chapter for VH that's fine... but don't tour with Roth unless your giving the total package, not 3/4.

    Will I have a good time at the show with my buddies? Of course! Will it be great to see Ed and Dave on the same stage together? Absolutely. But that is all, "in the moment stuff". Right now, I am of the attitude of, "If you are gonna bring back Roth... go for broke or don't bring him back at all!".

    bottom line to me is Mikey should be there if Roth is coming back! If it was some other fuck lead singer than fine, that would be the NEW Van Halen. But not Roth.

    They just toured 2 years ago... it's not like it has been 10 years like it was before Sam came back.

    No MA, No CVH

    WVH should form his own band within his age-group or generation and compose his own music. Whether that band succeeds or fails will be their own doing and merits.

    WVH is in the VH band only because of EVH's decision. EVH is the coach, team captain, president, prime minister, king, emperor, absolute ruler, etc. and whatever he decrees and commands, goes.

    VH III = failed
    VH IV = fail
    DLR, circa 2001:

    "Hey this is David Lee Roth and I promised you the news and here's the news.

    About a year ago myself and the great Van Halen band played together once or twice and it sounded amazing!

    In the following several months Edward and I, Edward Van Halen and me, David Lee Roth, created some of the most amazing, phenomenal - the hands fell off the clock ladies and gentleman and we wrote three astonishing tunes.

    That was last July (2000) and since then I haven't been up to the studio, we haven't really been in touch and we haven't made any music, but I am holding forth, I'm in the shape of my life and I got the high note - I'm ready to go.

    And I am positive for the future ladies and gentleman.

    Stay tuned and I'll tell you what the future brings..."

    I don't care why he's back ... as long as he's back.

    He's his son/family member first, bass player second.

    The time for him to do that was ten years ago. He's had ten years to do it. Maybe it's time for someone else to give it a shot.

    Perhaps he doesn't belong but this is what we've been given. I'll make the best of it and won't make any comparisons to CVH. There isn't a lot of point.

    Eddie doesn't seem to listen to anyone, least of all the fans. I think he makes his own choices. I'll go to the show and do my best to enjoy it for what it is.

    lame thread.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    There's no reason to leave this open. Nothing we haven't covered already. Closing.
