    Default :::Wolf's Album Is Finally Finished

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/van...on-solo-album/

    "Wolfgang has been posting photos and videos from the studio at his Instagram account since early 2015."

    ***
    I look forward to hearing his album, and hope (and presume) that his efforts are coordinated with Van Halen, meaning that if we're ever to hear anything else from Van Halen, it would be now or never.

    I dunno how these things work...I guess a release date of 2018 is a bit optimistic?

    "I don't think he owes us, and I think few if any do. What we would like is for him to release music, since he is our favorite musician. It's a wish and a hope, not a critique." - Dave's Dreidel

    He looks good in that picture, with the Blabbermouth article.

    Getting into touring shape?

    I'm pretty sure that was a pic from a few years ago. Maybe even when he toured with Tremonti.

    Oh man, i think you are correct.

    Regardless, i'm really interested in hearing the entire album (because i think each track will be different).

    This kid has major balls.

    The pressure to release a solo album with the last name VH on it...
    1. before your Dad or Uncle has done the same
    2. be under the high level of judgement/scrutiny that VH fans will put you under.

    I'm hoping it's a STP/RAGE/QOTSA vibe...

    I'm interested too. I hope it's good. I hope it's great, actually.

    I think Squalen predicted this kid just might be the Tom Scholz of 2018.

    Wonder if he drum-tracked in Al's 5150 live room with one of his snares.

    You know he did!

    I definitely would.

    You know for sure he's grown up as a kid playing Alex's kits that are scattered around 5150... he might have got attached to a specific 4 or 5 piece setup

    Iím interested to hear his album. Obviously itís his connection with VH that draws that interest but Iím going to try real hard to not have that influence me when I listen to it.

    I really hope after this hard work heís got something good

    LOL. No, that was you.

    My prediction. He overengineered the shit out of it for years and it's gonna be a Creed/Avenged/Tool/AlterBridge knockoff and if he doesn't tour the hell out of it, nobody is gonna know it ever dropped at all. It'll be millennial nu-metal rock, which is kind of his thing. The only chance it has of breaking any ceilings is if that boy can sing lead. I hope that he can, he deserves a career outside of his father's shadow.

    I don't see how he could pull a tour off.

    Performers like Michael Jackson & Prince had their shtick, and concert goers went to see them as much as they went for their music. If anything, Wolf will come in with substance, but no flash.

    I give Wolf a lot of credit in putting this record out, but if anything, I see it as his attempt to get from under his father's shadow. Where will he go from here?
