    that is what ed has said in the past, but what father goes around saying his son is terrible at something. I'd like to hear him play. On the 2004 tour Wolf came out during some of the shows and played 316 while Ed jammed around it. It was very cool, but anyone who has a little know how on a guitar can play 316. I'd love to see the kid rip it up.

    While 316 is not terribly difficult to play, it was very uncanny just how much Wolfie sounded like his dad. The way he played the notes and his sense of timing and rhythm was a bang on replica of his father. He's had two more years of practice and turned 15 this past March, so there's a good chance he might be rather good by now. It would be nice if there was a continuation of the VH legacy.

    Anything is possible, but I would tend to think
    that they'll be more like Bruce Lee/Brandon Lee were to martial arts.

    One is a guitar icon and innovator while the other is pretty good on guitar.

    That's my prediction.

    From what Ed has said, Wolfie is best at drums. That may have changed and he may be better at guitar now, who knows. He can obviously do both, though!

    If Eddie or VH tour again, I wouldn't be surprised to see Wolfie play live more.

    Well, Eddie originally was a drummer before him and Al switched instruments...

    Hey, I got an idea!!! Maybe they can have Wolfie play bass and pound fifths of JD if they can't get Mikey back...

    That's not as far-fetched as it seems! In an interview, Ed said Wolfie plays bass better than "some people that drink Jack Daniel's"...maybe he's had the idea in place for a while!
