    I’m surprised to see Wolf acknowledges that Live Without A Net exists.
    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "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?"

    Funny reading who defends Wolf. The kid is a spoiled brat.

    The coolest members of Van Halen left the band in 2004.

    Compared to most of us here, or most people in general? Probably so. But in the context of his upbringing I think he's about as normal as anyone could realistically expect. Again, just based on what we've seen of him the last few years, obviously I don't really know him.

    He knows deep down, he doesn't belong there. It's his dad's band. Not his. He should've done his own thing. He and Dad thought the fanbase would get over the Mike thing and embrace it. The ones that knew who the fuck he was, didn't, and the ones that didn't know who the fuck he was didn't care about who was playing bass or drums. Such is the life of many a rhythm section. His best bet if he just couldn't do the solo thing and Dad really wanted to prop him up in the biz was to come in as the 5th member and make VH a 5 piece.

    Shocking to see which members get off on bashing him.

    JD I do think your opinion on Wolf would change if Sam were fronting the band and not Dave. I do think youíre a little jaded because of who is in front of the mic.

    Wolf does not come off as a nice guy on social media. He comes off snarky and arrogant, like so many of his generation. Whether he feels justified or not to behave that way, or you think itís OK for him to be that way, thatís fine. I personally think thatís a shitty way for someone to behave towards fans. Especially fans that he had no involvement in cultivating to begin with. Are some fans assholes? Of course. But that comes with the territory when youíre a celebrity and youíre using social media. Either you have a thick skin, deal with the animosity, and laugh it off or choose to look like a dick. And some celebrities just donít even use it.

    Nobody is a VH fan because of Wolf.

    I'm not going to wish him a Happy B-Day because he singled me out and tried making fun of me on FB. I was flattered by it and thought it was funny. I secretly hoped he did it while in 5150 recording his album. Probably ruined a few good days of recording I'm sure.

    Were you the one that posted that exchange on here? I remember someone here talking about an exchange with him.
    †"He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesnít 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

    Lol yes I'm the one who's jaded. We will go with that Brett. You could just as easily say the same exact thing in reverse with a few of the Sam fans here, if the singers were reversed but I know you never would.

    I for one do think he should ignore the assholes on here and social media. But I dont think the particular response being discussed here was all that out of line.

    Donít get all defensive, of course you can say the reverse. Yes you are jaded because Dave is singing and many others are jaded because Sam isnít. I didnít say otherwise.

    I still think Wolfgang behaves poorly online and I donít care who the fuck is singing.

    I just think you would be a little less of a Wolfgang sympathizer if Sam was standing next to him on stage. Thatís all Iím saying. And Iím sure those who donít like him because he is standing next to Dave might feel differently about him if he was standing next to Sam

    He let my wife take a picture with him in 2012. Sure he could have said no.

    A lot has changed with his attitude in the last seven years if his online behavior is indicative of how he really feels about the fans.

    I hope that's just his online persona. I'm guessing he gets a lot of shit on twitter and he seems a little too thin skinned. Needs to learn to ignore some stuff.
