    Default If not Wolfgang or Mike - Who?

    I searched and couldn't find this discussed, if so please close, but I was curious if either Andrew, Venom, or any others with inside information discussed who is playing bass on the supposed fall tour?

    Mike is playing with Sam and Wolf said he was too young to do it. To this point I had assumed that it was Wolf playing, but again, was just curious if anyone had discussed it.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    I gather its still Wolfie. Its on wilkpedia that hes an official member. This is clearly Eddie and Alexs "perfect idea" to "milk through" the end of the VH legacy. Wolfie will be paid heaps, it'll set up his music career, not just with VH, but with anything he wants to do with it. Valeries probably agreed cause of the money question. Forget the idea of another bass player, it'll never happen.

    Well if Wikipedia says it, it must be true

    Just messin' with ya, of course. But back to the topic, to paraphrase the old "slim and none" adage, it seems like it's pretty much gonna be either Mike or Wolfie, and Mike just left the building. I think Ed's pretty much not going to accept anything less than the Three Men and a Baby quartet.

    The fiscally wise thing to do, of course, would be to get Mike back into the band. But when has this band ever gone the Bon Jovi route?

    It's Wolfgang on bass. There's no question about that at this point. At least he'll be standing onstage with a bass guitar in his hands. Whether he'll be plugged in or miming to someone offstage or pre-recorded tracks is anyone's guess at this point.

    The only real question is whether the band will have back up singers either onstage or hidden offstage.

    Somebody better remember to tell the sound techs to raise the lead singer's and bass player's microphone stands for this tour.

    Dave and Al are both atleast 6' aren't they? Ed is about my height (5'-10"), or so it seemed when I met him both times.
    Wolfie at 16 cvery well could be closing in on the 6' mark as well.

    No way is Eddie 5'10". I am just over 6' and towered over him when I met him. Al and Dave are about my height.

    Al: The usual, as if he didn't know the lights were about to come on... has there been a pic of Alex really happy in years?

    Ed is tiny, I am 6' and I towered over him. If you can find that pic I took with the band back in '95, I was taller than all of then, including Al.

    ...yep, agreed.

    The m'n'g photo I've got from '98 (thanks to the great old VHML) verifies the fact that I'm a smidge taller than Alex...and standing RIGHT next to Ed, I remember the top of his head coming up to somewhere between my nose and eye level...

    ...and I'm 5'11".

    Best guess: I'd peg Alex at around 5'10". Ed around 5'8".

    And I too was surprised at just how small everyone in the band at the time was.
