    Default Wolfgangs Stage Presence

    I wonder if wolfgang has worked on his stage presence for this tour. Last tour he kind of just stood in one place. I wonder if he has worked on that over the last couple of years. He has some of the best teachers in the world at his finger tips. Van Halen used to be about the great live performance and they owned the stage but that is slowly fading. Now that Dave and Ed are older and don't move around as much as they used to, they could use young blood to fill those shoes.

    They're older. They won't be running around like they did in 1982.

    As for Wolf, who cares? I won't be there to see him.

    I know they won't be running around like they used to but at least with Mike there was more of a show. Ed and Mike would do certain things together. Mike also would do things with the singers. I know that Mike has a lot more experience under his belt but I just figured it might add to the show. After all we are paying a lot of money to hear music and see a performance, right?

    For his own sake, if he didn't work on his stage presence in the last 4 years shame on him. He has two of the greatest live performers in rock history in his band to learn the ropes from.

    Personally, I'd prefer if Wolf hung/planked in the shadows while on stage.

    Wolfie's there as an albatross. He'll be lucky if I even look at him once during the performance.

    I wonder if he'll plank for us. That'd be cool.

    Agreed. Just don't get in the way of DLR and/or your dad.

    He did seem to loosen up a bit on the 07/08 tour. Having seen them at the beginning and the end of the tour it was apparent he was getting more comfortable with it. Hell, what was he 16 or 17 getting on a stage in front of thousands of people night after night for the very first time. On top of that I'm sure there was a fare share of people like Zachenfoot shooting daggers his way.
    I think this time around he'll probably appear a bit looser on stage.

    I took it by referring to him as an albatross you didn't care much for him.

    That's not really "throwing daggers" at him.

    I think he's kind of a douche and I won't be there to see him but I'm not going out of my way to diss the guy. It's the Ed, Al, and Dave show now, and it was in 2007.

    I know people say they don't care or don't pay attention but think about how many people discussed this on the 07/08 tour. A lot of people missed Mike for a lot of reasons but also missed Mike because of his stage presence as well.
