    Default Slightly different take on the Wolfie thing.....

    Hi folks - I hope you are well. It's been an age since I posted on here as I was a bit depressed after the 04 thing but I gotta say that I really hope this tour comes to the UK....I've seen Dave numerous times (the last time was poor) and seen VH with Sammy three times, but I was too young to see 'em with Dave - so I just want to experience the vibe between Ed and Dave as I'm pretty convinced that this antagonism was central to the aggressiveness of Ed's playing way back when..I just hope Ed wears the guitar higher as if it ain't high....he ain't shreddin'!

    Anyway - I digress......Has anyone considered that the reason Wolfie is on the tour is simply as he has far more chance of keeping his dad on the straight and narrow than Mikey could? We know Mike like's a drink or 10...so maybe as Wolf is too young to drink - this will help Ed not go down that particular road again.......? Just a theory.....
    Ed: Actually, the last record I bought was by a band called Brand X
    Al: I make my living by viciously attacking something
    Mike: ...actually I don't drink.
    Sammy: Are these yours Eddie?
    Dave: Look at that ankle - dirty girl!

    Really. If not for Wolf then VH would probably have been finished.

    You might be right about keeping eddie straight but I think this is just Eddie's way of keeping himself close with his own dad who helped and encouraged both Eddie and Alex grow as musicians. Those two played with their father at very young ages and I bet Ed wants to keep that tradition going. They are family oriented people (even though they can sure separate from friends quickly).

    I also would be concerned if I were Valerie. Starting at 16 on a national tour and being around the crazy adult antics...well...he's in for a major eye opening. COuld start some bad habits if you know what I mean. Shit, Eddie was smoking and drinking really young according to stuff I read.

    I hope the kid is awesome and shuts up the critics. I just wonder how the vocals are going to end up (same as us all I know).

    This group sure makes some wacky decisions but its the music that matters most to me.

    oh my! I havent heard a 'yo momma' comeback since middle-school! I gotta feelin' it's about to get Jerry Springer up in hea!
    If it sounds like bull shit, feels like bull shit, and appears to be bull shit, it's probably Eddie talking about his new lead singer being his new brother at a press conference...

    Ah man, you just gave me my first great laugh of the weekend. Thank you!

    Also let me say what a great post Lefty dropped up above. Interesting take on the Wolfie thing. I hope Wolfie has the experience of a lifetime.....in a good way. We should all get over the Michael Anthony thing and give him a chance. Besides, Mike seems happy with life after VH, and wishes the same for the youngster, shouldn't we?
