    Default 2 things EVH said.

    Earlier this year I think it was the Esquire interview EVH said that the Sammy music is at college.
    In the Guitar Center interview. EVH sais " If Wolf goes back to school I'm going with him"
    Makes you think?

    ...it was the second to last question:


    ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?

    Yep, sure is. Perhaps we have some slight hope left for some Pleasure Dome?

    Anybody know Wolfgang's view about the Sammy years? Has he ever stated his opinion about VH's music with Sammy (or let alone Gary and VHIII)?

    I didn't want to start a shitstorm thread. That was not my intention. Just thought those two quotes were interesting .
    Maybe I am reading to much into things said at two totally different times.

    I've seen the link to the first line. What about the second? I'm trying to google it myself but not finding it yet.

    As far as being one of the few musicians touring with a son as bandmate, Eddie Van Halen says it isn't a problem, "I don't see Wolfgang as my son in the band. Every once in a while when we're playing, I'll look over at him and be so damn proud. I just get such a proud feeling being on stage with my son. Any other time, he's just one of the band. He's that mature. He's far from a kid. He's an equal y'know? Sometimes I forget he's my son. Balance is not a challenge. Daddy does not have to oversee his son's life. He's not your average bear." When speaking of his son Wolfgang, Eddie Van Halen is a more enthusiastic to talk about specifics for the future, which he says will be, "Music, music, music. What is next for Wolf is the next record and the next tour. He's no different than I am. Music is his life. If he goes back to school, I'll probably go with him."

    I can see the connection you're making, it makes sense. But it doesn't really hold too much water. I think those comments are completely disconnected. I think he just wants to let Wolf drive the boat. Eddie is now so selfless that his career and his direction will go wherever Wolfgang will lead him. Wolfgang is 21, and there are a great many musicians that wish they had gone to college. That is a very realistic possibility for Wolf. He could take 10 years to get a degree -- it wouldn't matter. But I would respect him greatly for doing so -- still respect him completely either way. I think Ed was just talking off the top of his head. But I think he was serious. Whenever Wolfgang goes go college, I'd bet $100 that Ed would enroll too and go to classes with him!

    All in all, though, with his intelligence and observation, I don't doubt that Wolf's thoughts are banging out more VH albums while the guys still can. He can go to college any time he wants to. His life is wide open -- he was born into an incredible world of opportunity is he smart enough to know it.

    The guy is obviously on cloud nine over the fact that he has a new lease on life and his son is the main reason for it. He also said that if Wolf started his own band he would ask to play in it. Man, I am happy for this guy because it seems that he's as happy as hell.

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I just thought it was interesting topic for discussion . Don't think EVH is that cryptic anyway.

    You don't think EVH is being cryptic? Then how do you explain THIS bit of the aforementioned quotation you posted?:
