    Default You know Wolfie is a bad mutha...

    Anyone wanna bet Wolfie is a better bass player? I bet he's got the "bad muthafucka" wallet hanging off that chain in the RS pic.

    No matter how horrible you may think Eddie is, no matter how drunk or loony, no matter how evil, "unloyal" to Mikey, or completely insane you might WANT him to be (since none of you even fucking know him)..... you know damn well that he would not put his son on stage unless Wolfie was... a bad muthafucka.

    The boys have ALWAYS done it their way. So I say do it YOUR way boys!

    You can call me a Mikey hater if you want...but let's be completely honest. Just because Mikey was in the band for a long time, and because he can hit some high notes...he really ain't that great of a bass player. He can keep up, granted...but come on. Did we EVER really get to hear a great three piece section just blowing our minds? No. Mikey kept the bottom, albeit well, but it wasn't mind blowing. And maybe I'm just a music lover all the way, but I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have a three piece, and a one sexy David Lee, to show us what rock and roll is all about.

    Wolfie WILL show us what a bad muthafucka he truly is! You know I'm right.

    All I'm going to say is that I'm willing to bet that Wolfie is really going to blow some minds on this tour.

    I remember when I'd sit in my room and listen to Van Halen. I was just a kid with a boom box and some tapes my sister had given me. The tapes were so worn, you couldn't even read the writing on the tape itself.....of course no case.

    I loved everything about the band, yet I had never seen a picture, never seen any film or video of the band and really never read a world about the band.....it was what I heard on those tapes that convinced me that Van Halen is/was bad ass.

    Now my point...how the hell can one picture stir so many emotions for so many people around here. A wallet on a chain, suckin' on suglasses, Ed with a dorky hat and Alex looking prickish......this is what it takes to convice some people that this is a badass lineup.....wow!

    I think the picture looks pretty cool myself, but I'm not going to discredit Mike's contributions to this band just off of photo....as a matter of fact, you can't take away what Mike brought to the table...it's there, on all the records. To bash the one guy in the bad that gave a "fuck" just doesn't make sense to me....
    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

    You gotta kinda laugh at how a picture has all of a sudden replaced 30 year of MA's existence and FOR SURE Wolfie is a genius. Oh and of course, let's just trash Mike in the process of everything. BTW we saw him in 2004 playing 316, he wasn't a bad muthafucka then, in fact he sucked, and Ed threw him out there on stage then. Yeah Ed's never actually done embarrassing things in person right? Sorry.

    It's pathetic that some of you take cheap shots at the only member that gave a flying fuck about you as a fan. You should be fucking ashamed.

    Oh, he's just got too be. He's Ed's kid. I'm sure he can do all sorts of neato tricks............ Go buy a bass and try to learn to play Mikey's parts in 3 months without staring at the fingerboard. After that, try to play and sing at the same time. Good luck!

    Oh it's easy dude. Don't you know Mike can't really play and EVERYONE here can play his parts? If only he were Geddy Lee.

    LOL that now Wolf is a badass and a better player than MA after ONE picture showing him wearing a wallet chain and not looking like a little kid. I'm not saying it isn't possible, but I get a kick out of all the assumptions made around here. Correct me if i'm wrong, but NO ONE here has heard him play. IF you have heard him play and IF you know anything about bass playing, then by all means please enlighten us.

    Did you really think he sucked? Everytime I've heard a bootleg of 316 with Wolfgang, it was basic, but he never screwed up. And I do think it's laughable that people can hype Wolfgang without hearing him play bass. I'm hoping he'll be great, but it's stupid to think he'll have an easy time replacing Mike.

    It was nothing to write home about. It wasn't like, "Wow he's great." At 13 I could play that well too.

    The post that started this thread already seems to have the general attitude of a lot of fans on here, and it's sad. Yeah OK be excited, but taking cheap shots at the one COOL member of VH who liked the fans and loved the music is sad, and I wonder if you ever were a VH fan if that's your attitude about Mike.

    Is it not sad to have people making cheap shots at a 15 year old who may just want to play music with his dad and uncle?

    Granted this new photo is going to stop a lot of the fat jokes but you are going to still have people taking pot shots at him. He was not the person responsible for making the decision of getting rid of Mike. Yes he is Mike's replacement just like Sammy was for Dave. However people want to hold up signs, wear shirts at the shows, heckle just to get under his skin or to make his dad melt down by coming to his son's defense.

    You are right though its sad. Its sad to think that Mike probably would hate the fact what some of his "fans" are saying about Wolfgang. His dad fine but I don't think Mike would want any people abusing Wolfgang just to get back at Eddie.
