    Default What Wolfgang needs to do...

    I was thinking, since its commonly believed that the tour from a few years ago and the album/tour now is largely due to the influence of Wolfgang, what he needs to do after this album/tour is talk his father into bringing back MA and then stepping back to become a rhythm guitar player. I know I'll get beat up over this because one of the aspects of this band that we admire is that they are 4 piece band (at least I do), but if the only future alternatives for this band are A) what it is now, and B) the original four with Wolfgang playing a second guitar, I would take it! The main reason Wolfgang is here is because Ed has dreamed of playing with him since he was born. Well, he'd still be playing with his son; plus, the die hard fans would get their original lineup back. I'm sure it would even take some pressure off of Wolfgang while on stage. If Ed and Dave could mend THEIR relationship, then surely Ed and MA could (especially considering how MA has expressed multiple times that he would come back; even after Ed has shit on him ever since he left).

    Just a thought.


    Not to keep talking hypotheticals when we're in the midst of the most exciting news with this band since at least the mid-90s, if not mid-80s, but just thinking aloud...
    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...

    Sounds nice, but I think Mike has made it pretty clear that he's quite happy where he is and is not interested in the VH drama anymore.

    Wolfgang needs to act like he's part of Van Halen. He will never fill Mike's shoes, but if your gonna be up there own it son.

    In order of preference

    Van Halen with Mike. No Wolfgang.

    Van Halen with Pat Badger or some other seasoned bass player. No Wolfgang.

    Van Halen with Wolfgang. No Mike

    Van Halen with Mike and Wolfgang playing guitar.

    Two guitars will change the sound much more than not having Mike's backgrounds there....you know since they are just piping in his backgrounds anyway

    This whole "Wolfgang in Van Halen" could have been done in a way that made everyone happy. And made Wolf even happier, I bet...

    Original 4, with Wolf touring with them as a special guest. He could have played a few songs as the rhythm guitarist, or even replacing Ed or Al on a new track. Hell, even guest as lead vocalist, just like MA did for a song on the VHIII tour. Even share credit for a track on the album. And the band remains CVH.

    Very few would have any problem with that, IMO. Would have been fun to see the shows.

    Plus it would have been a better springboard for Wolf to start his own band one day.

    This is shit that's NEVER going to happen!!!!
    EVER!!!

    I hate that I get myself so riled up about these ludicrous scenarios. BUT Damn !!!

    It boggles my mind how and why some of these ideas are thought up.

    Wolf on guitar? That would never work. Ed IS the rhythm....


    it would be a clusterfuck...
    If cleanliness were next to Godliness, then that would make you the devil...(CLUTCH)...

    Perhaps Wolf was the spark that reignited his dad's ambitions to keep the VH train going. In that light, we should thank him.

    We'll always be comparing the singers /other members not being replaceable, and everybody has their favorites. But every time the roster changed, a new flavor was brought into the music. Give Wolfgang a chance. Perhaps he can also bring in some modern elements into the band, that would otherwise perhaps try sounding like it was 1978 all over again - and that won't work anymore in attracting a wide audience today.

    Bout a week ago I woulda said something along the lines of 'no - Wolfie needs to get the hell away from VH and make his own way, Mikes been shafted etc etc'

    It's early days but I'm wavering a bit.

    Perhaps - inadvertantly - he may well end up being the guy that gets this band to some kind of happy ending.

    And I mean all of 'em (well except Gary).
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......

    A second guitar player? No fucking way!!! For what I see, Wolfgang made a great job in NY.

    Get over it !!

    Jesus !! Get over it FFS, Mike will not be coming back to Van Halen ! Wolfie played his ass off last night and sounded great. Just accept it, it happened years ago, Mike is happy with the Foot (and also playing great; showing what a great player we all knew he was but didn't get the chance to express in VH), and Wolfie has been an incredibly positive influence on Ed and probably one of the main reasons why we're getting the chance to enjoy Van Halen now.

    Rant over.

    Does the noise in my head bother you ?

    Wolf is Ed's son and VH's bass player forever more, and that is cool. Get used to it. Mike's not coming back.
