    Default Wolfie Playing Striped Bass?

    Is that a Frankie striped 4 string bass I see in the intro on van-halen.com?

    I bet he'll play it live.
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddie’s prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    I'm not totally against Wolfie being involved but I really wish he would carve out his own identity if he's going to do this. Playing a bass that looks just like dad's iconic guitar is kinda lame. He's young and creative. He should make his own design. Maybe some crazy new twist on the striped concept or something completely his own. Mikey has a JD bass, maybe Wolfie should do a Koolade bass!

    or, instead of straight lines, he could draw in some wiggles... and a picture of the wiggles!

    Yeah at first when I saw it I just figured they used Ed's Frankie because they didn't have anything for Wolfie. That was until I realized it had 4 strings.

    Wolfie should play a silver spoon shaped bass...
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    I'm still in disbelief that:

    -EVH is crazy enough to do this thing with his son.
    -So many people are ready to go with it instead of saying "this is madness, we want nothing to do with this!"

    Clearly EVH now has major psychological issues that may or may not have been caused by drinking and should not be allowed to "run wild" with them.

    Does Wolfie's bass have a 1971 quarter on it? Wouldn't a 1991 quarter be more appropriate?
