    Default Will Wolfie Do Any PR?

    Just wondering what everyone thinks about the idea of Wolfie doing interviews/PR for the new album. Is this even a remote possibility or will they just leave it all to Dave? It would be easy to shelter him from this type of thing, but I think it would be cool and we'd get a fresh perspective on a lot of the recent goings on. Would Ed allow such a thing? Probably not...

    If you see Wolf doing PR, it will be alongside his dad, uncle and Dave. Or in Teen Beat.

    I don't think VH will do any sort of PR that they cannot control. Fluff pieces and video snippets like the ones they released would be my guess. Can't see these guys doing a live interview except DLR. Someone could ask him about MA, and he would go on a two minute non-sequitor that doesn't answer the question, the media guy would not have a clue what DLR just said, and will go on to question number two.

    There are too many tough questions that they will not want to answer. Mike, Sam, and to a lesser extent Gary. They just don't want to talk about anything that happened in the band between 1985 through 2006.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    No way they let WVH do any interviews on his own. He has been trained by the BEST in not saying ANYTHING. I know Ed loves his son but you know the law was laid down not to divulge too much. For a guy his age and having been raised with Twitter and all this social media, he's really disciplined in that way. You know he would like to let loose.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure CC - have you never seen him on the TV? I remember when some random person with a camera caught up with EVH, Janie, Wolf and his bird outside of a restaurant and Wolf looked like a deer caught in the headlights. The most he could do was let out some barely comprehensible squeak about his new, shaven haircut. It didn't look to me like he was "dying to let loose"!

    I respect what you are saying Dibs, but He's 20 or 21 yrs old now. A grown man in my book. One that is in a huge influential band that is about to rock the nation with a tour and new album. I think he is ready and willing to talk his ass off but we know he won't. I don't get the "shy" vibe from him. I think he takes after his mother. Just my guess that's all.

    CC - I think we're going to have to agree to disagree; I definitely get "the shy vibe" from him (or maybe it's that he's been so 'repressed' by his Dad that I'm mistaking it for shyness, I'm not sure...And, to be honest, I really don't like thinking of Ed as some evil dictator in the guise of a father - I have a feeling that when he's not piddled he's a loving Dad).

    In response to the post just before this - yes, WVH does 'tweet' like a little birdie but there's a world of difference between the persona one portrays on the internet and the real self. He may well have confidence online because he's not having to face those people and communicate with them in real life.

    I just get the feeling that for Wolf, P.R is more about 'planking re-enactment' than public relations... Let's face it, if you get your kicks out of lying prone and in silence for several hours at a time, that doesn't seem to suggest that you are the most communicative or sociable being on the planet, does it?

    Dave didn't do any interviews last time either though right? They did the press conference and, someone correct me if I'm wrong here, that was it. They didn't do any other interviews or press at all to promote the tour.

    I have a feeling that the focus is going to be kept on the 3 original members 99% of the time. There may be an "Eddie & Son" interview here or there, but I doubt the press will show any interest in interviewing Wolf, since he has none of the history or experiences the other members have.

    Wolfie? Heck, will any of them do any PR?

    It's kind of hard (as has already been mentioned) to do any sort of unrestricted Q&A or open forum thing for anyone in the band when over 20 years of the band's existence is off-limits for discussion. Actually, it's even more restrictive than those 20 years. I can think of all sorts of topics that would be instant interview-enders apart from their history. "What do you think of Chickenfoot?" "What happened with the R&R Hall of Fame induction?" "Do you ever talk to Gary Cherone?" "Is there any chance that Michael Anthony could do some shows with you in the future?" Plus questions about his divorce, his stopping of the last tour for rehab, the porno soundtracks, recycling the old material to a greater degree than before (at least we assume that so far), anything at all about VHIII, and on and on. Basically, any interview with anyone in the band is going to be limited to specific questions about the 13 new songs and any questions about gear Eddie's using on the album and/or tour. That's it. I can see Eddie sitting down and actually handing the interviewer a sheet of paper and saying "Here, these are the three exact questions you can ask me."
