    The opposite. That's my favorite part of the song lol. The "King-sized repercussions, trouble by the dozens" part.

    That, and a good intro to and by father and son at the beginning.

    Not me. As a drummer I love that the drums come in purposely out of time and not just on the "1" like 99% of music.

    Yeah, normally I love things a little out of time. I'm not sure, but perhaps it's because there are vocals over it that throws me off. IDK, it just comes across as a little weird to me. Just a minor criticism...glad I'm in the minority on it. Love the song, though.

    People are asking Wolf a lot of ADKOT questions and it's cool that he's answering them, some interesting tidbits. But it'd be cool if they went after some bigger fish.
    Anyone here ask him anything? Other than when Brett reached out about the "creepy" Linkers.

    Agree. It's an opportunity that's being lost here. A Van Halen who is actually responding on social media and the bigger fish remain elusive. That guy probably knows everything that's in 5150.

    I'd like to ask Wolf about his favorite gear for each instrument and why. I'd also like to ask about his favorite genres of music.

    Sammy Hagar did the probable. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Well yeah let's take advantage and ask some good ones. I think a good one would be what other demos they at least considered for ADKOT, and more so, what changed their mind on the next studio album in general.

    A Top 3 would have to be about asking him about the vault of course. Like "when" and throw in about 25 "pretty-pleases."

    I'd think we would get more replies if the questions were focussing about him and his new music. Perhaps some ADKOT tidbits.

    All other of those questions we are dying to get answered would be better put together in a one hour Q&A with Ed or Al, moderated by, say, Greg Renoff? And in that Q&A they announce a remastering of each album with a 40-page booklet with photos from the accompanying tour and a live take from the same. If Rush can do it, VH surely can. Ok, getting a bit carried away...

    I would already be happy hearing from Wolfgang, his ADKOT insights and some more teasers from his new music.
