    i have little issue with him reacting to tweets aimed at him. This was just dumb though. He's just being a troll.

    I agree, I donít mind him lashing out when someone goes negative on him, but this just seemed like ďhey hereís an opportunity for me to be snotty and show all those ďfansĒ

    People get internet brave and say stupid things, Wolf included. But lashing out at people that are just asking for more, well thatís fans. Itís also supply and demand, without those people having the thirst
    There are no albums
    No concerts
    No merch
    No house
    No cars
    No studio

    In short, the people heís lashing out at are responsible for the material things in his life and his career

    So return fire when fired upon, but other than that show some humility, be humble and thankful

    This goes with something I said before; Ed (for example) likes to tinker in his studio and drive his Lamborghinis.... Who does he think paid for all that? The fans...

    Why would Ed tell Wolf something that he himself doesn't seem to believe?

    When I saw that post, I noticed a bunch of comments that said "Call Sammy", call Sam & Mike", "Roth sucks", "get back together with Sammy", "Call Sammy" again. I'm sure that would be grating if all you are doing is posting a current picture, imho. Also the kids a millennial

    Yeah, those comments would annoy me, as well, if i were Eddie.

    First of all, he's not gonna scroll through his comments and be like:
    Wow, this guy Greg says i'm his favorite guitarist for over thirteen years...
    But looks like he thinks i should give Sammy a call...
    Can't let Greg down, gotta do it.

    Wolf may be a bit annoying, but the fans are equally grating.
    Eddie doesn't care that you like his playing & want Sammy back.

    We can argue singers all day but thereís not one fan who prefers him over Mike. And he knows it.

    Especially when Sam cant shut his big yapper. Some just need to let it go. Go see a Circle show.

    This idea that the fans are solely responsible for Ed's wealth and therefore have a right to act like douchebags on the internet is preposterous.

    Ed created music with Dave, Mike, Al, and Sam that people wanted to hear. You paid for the album and bought a concert ticket. To somehow think that entitles you to claim that your responsible for his success is utter bullshit.

    No wonder the guy doesn't have any use for his supposed "fans."

    I suppose that I have been more vocal than most, about wanting to hear new Van Halen music.

    I love the art that the band produces; for me, it's not a matter of having something new to listen to on the radio, or having a concert to attend. I love their work, which I see as timeless.

    Moreover, as others have expressed, I also would like to see the band "close" in a way that's honors their legacy.

    That said, here's my issue with Van Halen's bassist:

    He's not the first artist to feel the way that he does; Ann Wilson confessed struggling with similar feelings, and I am sure that others have as well. In Ann's case, however, she realized that she wouldn't have a stage to perform on, if it weren't for the fans who put her there.

    In Wolf's case, he squawks more than most, for a position that was literally handed him.

    Sorry...I don't take kindly to his ongoing, lousy, attitude, when the majority of us have done nothing but praise his abilities.

    Yep it all goes hand in hand. If Ed, Al, Dave, and Mike didnt practice in Dr Roth's basement for thousands of hours, and play probably thousands of gigs in tiny clubs perfecting their stagecraft, we wouldnt have this band to be fans of.

    That said, it is a shame there aren't more releases, and that the band isnt as big a fans of their live performances on the early tours as many of us are. But that is their choice to freely make.
