    it makes me really happy to see him happy and sober like that. that video was one of the best things to come out of this tour so far. i love all the concerts and saw and all the stuff on the internet, but that was a really neat look behind the scene.

    Saw the article around 45 minutes ago, came here and sure enough there was already a thread. Some interesting tidbits:

    But he will talk about singer David Lee Roth. Contrary to what has been reported, he says there's no tour-nuking feud. "Dave's the same as he's always been, funny, witty," Ed says. Then he laughs. "Sometimes I can only take that in small doses, because he just goes on and on."

    Wolfgang jumps in: "He's like the Energizer BunnyŚ wind it up and see what happens."

    "But Dave always lands on his feet," Ed says.

    and

    "Alex and I used to joke, why didn't Mom and Dad have another kid for a bass player? Well, now we have our own Van Halen bass player," says Ed. "So now I think, why didn't Valerie and I have another kid? Could have been the singer."

    There you have it... Dave can thank his lucky stars for birth control.

    I like the comments on the old albums and how Wolfgang discovered them. Cool little story.

    Pretty interesting video. We hear so little from Wolf that it's nice to see him like this. The article mentions Japan, and then possibly something interesting in 2013. Looks like good times ahead for VH fans.

    Hey thanks so much for posting that. I loved seeing and reading that. Ed definitely looks older anymore but looks great and it's wonderful to see him with his son. How sick Ed was in the past it's really nice all this is happening.. not just for us fans but him and his son. Awesome stuff. You can see the VH resemblance in Wolf. lol

    So awesome to hear the entire band is doing well and they even have possible special plans in 2013!

    Loved it. Interesting how Wolf often finishes his Dad's sentences.

    After Wolf/Eddie recount the story about how Wolf "stumbled" onto the old VH albums, it makes you wonder if Wolf dug up those old unreleased songs and convinced Eddie to dust them off and release them officially on an album.

    You can see Eddie beam with pride both in concert and in this video. After all the dark years, its great to see Eddie in such great spirits.

    I really like this. Nice read and the video just shows what a happy, sober Eddie Van Halen is like and just how great of connection he and Wolfgang have both personally and musically. Keep on rocking guys!
