    I was surprised looking at the pics. At first I thought they were from 10 years ago. Lockdown agrees with Dave, he looks younger, almost has long hair again. There's a youthful energy in those pictures.

    To think that Ed is going to want to get back onto the bus at this point is crazy talk.
    Such a boomer.

    I think Wolf’s point was that, Dave doesn’t really know where Ed’s head is at and shouldn’t be speaking for somebody else. So yes, in a way he is deciding for Ed. You said he was stating where Ed is currently at...that’s pretty much deciding for the guy.

    Just because Dave happens to be the only person from the band who’s talking doesn’t mean what he’s saying is accurate, no matter how much you or I might believe him.

    We weren’t there. We have no idea. I still tend to believe most of what Dave is saying but if the guy’s son is coming out and pushing against that narrative, it says something.

    I also love the fact that the guy doesn’t mind calling out retarded VH fans who comment on his posts. He’d be absolutely hated if he posted here on the daily...

    Rarely when I read or hear something Dave says does it make sense. This interview is no different.

    For the Wolf comment, it's surprising that he's shocked by Dave's comment. I thought he understands today's media culture and the fact that Ed & Al's silence, while a great tactic in 1985 to create band mystique, is totally unsuited for 2020. The void left by their silence will inevitably be filled by more talkative people, be it Dave, Sam, Ted Templeman, etc, etc. They get to write VH history now. If the others don't like it, they have the option to speak up. They choose not to.

    Wolf is Eddie's son, and as so, he knows that he has an actual connection to his father that none of us middle aged fan boys have never and will never have. Many of us have idolized Eddie since the first album was released way back in 1978, which was 13 years before Wolf was even born. I think a lot of lifelong fans feel a sort of "sense of entitlement" to Eddie and the band Van Halen. Wolf probably just shakes his head at this mentality. He likely doesn't understand it, and frankly, we really shouldn't expect him to. He obviously knows how incredibly talented his dad is, but at the end of the day, Eddie Van Halen is just his dad. I'm sure many of us would react the same way Wolf does to all of the criticism he receives.

    Cool interview of Dave being Dave. Painting is a great outlet for him since he can’t tour now.
    As for VH, what he said sounded valid to me but only a few really know how Eddie is doing.

    A - the word "ret&rded" has been retired from here on the Links

    B - Contrary to public opinion, Dave knows what is going on with Ed and in Ed's head, he just didn't pull that out of his ass.

    C - Wolf didn't push against the narrative, he was being publicly disrespectful to one of the main architects of his lifestyle. If he disagreed with what DLR said, there is this little thing called a telephone, he could have picked it up and called him. Also, what narrative? That Ed isn't well and isn't into recording and touring? What, is that some newsflash to some? One album of re-worked demos from the 1970's in 22 years? Ed is taking an extended break currently. Good news is that he has picked up a guitar and is playing, and he hadn't done that in a while, so there is that sliver of hope.

    D - Wolf would do fine on here. Angry Canadians? Not so much.

    back looks long in the first photo, front looks long in the second. Either way he seems to be growing it out.

    In the first pic, the photographer got him to do a genuine laugh and not the "forced grin" he's been doing for the last few years. It's been decades since I've seen pics of him like this where you feel you're seeing the real Dave, and not the "Diamond" act.

    Wolf's response means one of two things: either he was being a complete dick (e.g. "don't answer for my Dad), or EVH is going out again - and I do think that EVH is going out again.

    In what way?

    Either a final Halen tour, or he goes out with Wolf.

    Why am I so certain about this?

    Wolf's done sat on his ass, and has done NOTHING to promote his work. How can he expect to launch a career on his own this way? He can't; I forsee a final VH tour with Wolf opening, or I see a trio scenario (Wolf, EVH, AVH).

    Talent or not, killer riffs or not, Wolf's an unknown quantity; who would go out and see him - especially when the guy does nothing to promote his work?

    By default, EVH HAS to be involved at some point, until Wolf gets off the ground.

    Ed’s looking a bit advanced these days, so I just don’t see him wanting to go out on the road.
    He’s aged a lot with his health woes, I’m thinking they missed that window of a final run: 2018.
    Wolf, I think, is just scared to do anything in his own.
    He won’t even release a full song, and he’s dragged the thing out for years.
    I think he likes the idea of working on an album, but has internal fears putting out into the public.
