    Ed enthusiastic maybe ??

    OK here is my take on this reunion thing, and mods if you don't wanna nother
    thread about this just close it it won't hurt my feelings.

    I think the whole reason Ed is back with Dave is because of Wolfie, supposedly according to Ed (grain of salt inserted here) Wolf was digging all the old tunes So he (Ed) got the idea to have Wolf play bass and jam with Dave, so as bad as it sucks not having MA with the band it may just be possible that the only reason it's happening anyway is becuase of Wolfie in the first place ?

    Glad wolf digs the old tunes but man, I think Mr. Anthony would be diggin that shit a helluva lot more than punk ass wolfie. Anthony has earned the right to play them over the last 30 years. Wolfie wasn't even born until what? Balance!? I'd have to think Dave can recognize, respect and see that. I totally doubt wolfie playing bass had anything positive to do with the reunion or was any kind of factor at all. I really need to believe DLR would rather this be with Mike and Ed's just being a fuck.

    Dave should've stood up to Ed like Sam did. I guess he just doesn't have the pull.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    I don't know. To me, this doesn't seem implausible. In some households, Dad buys the kid a car for his/her 16th birthday, in the Van Halen household, the kid gets the chance to tour with a monumental rock band.

    The guitar is way more important than the bass in that band. I'm sure Dave has realized that Ed is far more likely to play well with someone he loves rather than someone he hates on the other side of the stage. With MS still in the band it would just be a cashgrab and EVH would inevitably play as badly as he did in 2004. Now he will be motivated to blow people away so that it's a positive experience for his son.....Dave knows that.

    Dave and Mike never got along back in the day. Dave knows the reunion is about the singer and the guitarist. You can back fill the drums and bass, and the tour will still sellout every night.

    Who is the bassist for the rolling stones? who is that old dude druming for the rolling stones....People only care about mick and keith...ditto for classic van halen

    yeah, I'm sure Ed's real fired up...just like he was on the BOBW premier when he sang "it's like a whole new begining"..problem is in about a month or so after the tour starts he'll either be hammered and get pissed at DAve for no reason or he'll get pissed at Dave for something and get hammered and about a month after the tour starts we'll get an interview from Ed about how shitty it really was...or an interview from Dave saying the same thing.

    It's always the same thing with Ed, he loves it..then a few weeks later, he hates it.

    This thought could be a thread in and of itself, but I think this whole stink bomb of no mike/add wolfie is completely centered around Ed trying to force feed some sort of legacy aspiration he has for his kid. In principle, it's admirable I guess, but in reality it's just an overdriven ego with too much pull for his own good, forcing an unnatural and unethical fit in to this thing prematurely. He's forcing Wolfgang Van Halen on to the music scene on his coat tails at the expense of Mike Anthony and that's FUCKED. The kid has the Van Halen name. I'd say if he can't make it with THAT head start in the world, then he obviously isn't supposed to be a musician. Point is though, that he should have to go out and earn his own salt, not let Daddy steal somebody elses.

    Fucking Ed. Dickhead.

    actually that's not the case at all. It was in 2004, there are no other examples of this. Please fill free to let me know of all the other times he got sick of working with someone after a few weeks.

    No, they care. And you'll care too when you hear the mess. Or when the CD skips.

    Sam wasn't trying to convince Ed not to include his son in the band.

    That's a different kind of problem then just getting Ed to agree to work with Mike again.

    I strongly disagree with that statement when it comes to Van Halen. These guys packaged themselves very well as a unit/team. Probably better marketing job than anybody in the business in that respect. People DO know who Mike is whether by name or by the Jack Daniels bass, or the whacky solo's or flying around in the panama video. That's just the average fan. The hardcores and people in the music scene know what element he brought in vocals, that is irreplaceable.

    Mike should be there just like Ricky Martin should of been on the Univision show I saw this weekend for the much anticipated Menudo reunion. I know Menudo has had over 30 members but without Martin it isn't the same.
