    Default The three Van Halens on Twitter?

    For those folks on Twitter who follow the three Van Halens, a question. Am I correct that Wolf runs his own account, while the @VanHalen and @EddieVanHalen accounts are run/managed by a non-band member?

    Alex's account looks abandoned.

    In any event, my user name is below; would love to connect with folks.

    Best - Greg

    That's my understanding, Greg.

    @eddievanhalen is 100% run by Janie, I believe.

    @vanhalen has not had an update since December 2013, so I consider it abandoned.

    @alexvanhalen -- he only posted once in 2009 (and has 10k+ followers!)

    @wolfvanhalen is in fact Wolf's own account and he does post regularly.

    Other important ones, of course, are @JanieVanHalen and @wolfiesmom (Valerie), also @MarkTremonti.

    Alex is so odd to me. Nothing against him, but it's like he simply doesn't exist 99% of the time. He's about the most invisible member of any major rock band I've ever seen. He's never played or recorded with anyone else, there are almost no interviews with him unless he's with the rest of the band, he never participates in NAMM or any other trade shows or clinics, he has no online presence, and no one ever seems to notice. It's especially weird to me being such a big Rush fan because Neil Peart has always been so heavily criticized for being private and reclusive. And yet, Neil is always doing stuff at the Drum Channel, has done clinics, does interviews in print and on video all the damn time, has written several very personal books, maintains a website where he keeps an online diary, has performed with countless people and contributed to their records, and on and on and on. Even Eddie gets all the pressure when no one knows what the hell is going on with VH and Alex is just immune. It's one of the weirdest things in major rock to me. He's just Eddie's puppet who doesn't even exist on his own.

    All truth. Hell, Neil just did an interview with NPR on Tuesday.

    I think Alex is in a heavy glass case that reads "Break open in case of tour only".

    Meant to post about this last week but forgot! Alex did do an interview for the Beware of Mr. Baker documentary, but his part was cut from the film.

    Wow. It's like he's invisible even when he doesn't want to be!

    Yeah, I want to see that, I know Neil was interviewed for that, too. I've always been sort of a casual fan of Cream but they are interesting, especially Baker. I'm glad you reminded me of it!

    It's a good documentary, although Baker is pretty unlikable.
