I'm sure many of us would react the same way Wolf does to all of the criticism he receives.
    I respectfully disagree; Wolf's perspective is one sided.

    When Ed beat cancer, his biggest cheerleading team consisted of people on this forum; same as when he battled his addiction woes. We all wished him the very best, as we put his well being far ahead of our desire for music.

    With respect to his fanbase, Ed's a bit twisted, and so is Wolf.

    But be honest. Was this you???

    If Dave was 100% certain that Ed was gearing up for a 2021 tour he'd still say he doubts it will happen. In fact, it's more likely he'd sound skeptical. Yes, I'm sure there's plenty of truth to his comment and he knows one day it will end, but I wouldn't read too much into his comment, or Wolf's tongue in cheek response.

    My take: Dave gave a genuine answer regarding Ed's future in the biz. With Ed's health issues and his age, it would make sense if Ed wasn't interested in going out on the road again. And there is a possibility Dave has some insight into this matter. Wolf, no doubt feeling a little protective of his old man, may have felt Dave was a little out of line speaking for his dad, especially when health was involved.

    I have no idea what's going on, but I have a strong feeling I have seen my last VH show. I hope I'm wrong though.

    We all know the drill, if something ever happens with VH again, we'll know it a week or two before it happens.

    I don't think Wolf needed to respond like that. Dave is just going by the facts he has at hand.

    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.
    Yup. There's fear, for sure. He thinks ppl are gonna expect Van Halen, the band. I donno how anyone could. He did the whole thing himself, it's gonna sound far different.

    Of course Wolf's perspective is one sided. He's known his dad his whole life and he doesn't know any of us at all.

    It's all bullshit.
    100 million records sold, diamond records, sold out tours, own line of guitar. I mean what more do they want?
    It's a cause for CELEBRATION, that level of success, how could anyone be bitter and not realize how lucky they are?!? Why be afraid and not choose to be happy??!? I mean just the fact that you got 5150 and can use it anytime you want, it's pretty much awesome. Just shut down social media and get to work.

    Nothing like a bunch of VH fans to tell the son of the guy whose existence is the only reason we’re here, that he doesn’t really know as much as others or what he’s talking about or that he’s one sided or that he shouldn’t pipe up when stupid fans come at him with bullshit....

    I hear ya'. On the other hand, they should probably be at least a little grateful that anybody cares enough about their music to say anything at all.

    Absolutely. Very true.

    Although, one could make the argument that there’s “caring” and then there’s being an over zealous, way-too-involved, dumbass fan who feels like they know better than somebody who’s actually been in the band for the last 14 years and is actually Ed’s SON...

    The fact Wolf has no shame and gets enjoyment in making an ass out of those people on his IG, is brilliant to me.

    Much of the time making an ass of someone else means making a total ass of oneself.
