    Some more interesting stuff.
    I think he might be talking about us here at the Links in this interview.
    Also mentions depression and anxiety.

    Good stuff.

    Wolf, I'm glad the assholes are reaching out to you and apologizing, but just know that most of this site recognized your contribution to the 2007 comeback and it was the minority that had stupid shit to say. But none of that matters anymore, you're still so young and there is so much ahead for you to accomplish on your own.

    We all loved your dad's band and while your future has nothing to do with that, he left you a springboard to take advantage of -- so you might as well jump.

    Good luck to you.

    Why the fuck do you have to dig that shit up, sludge?

    After years of bullshit, baseless accusations of faking it, and unwarranted hate for not being Michael Anthony - we finally have a majority of the folks here being positive. And you know heís checking this place out.

    Wolf - Youíre talented as hell and people are stoked about your new tunes. Thank you for bring the only reason why we got any Van Halen activity these last few years. Sorry some of the assholes here still donít get it.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Sludge could have just asked me for the records as I am the official transcriber.

    Surprised this kind of mud slinging is going on; is there a benefit at this point.

    Move on Sludge; clearly Wolfgang is.

    WTF dude? I've said it before, internet is the death of CONTEXT. You're taking that quote out of its context. If you compared 15 year old Wolfie joining the band in 2007 with veteran bassist Michael Anthony, you could say one is a bass player, the other is a guitar player who switched to bass for a tour, hence not a bass player per se. Plus you have to remember the circumstances of Mike's dismissal, which weren't pretty.
    But even at the height of the 2007 criticism, most people here were quick to point out that Wolf wasn't to blame. He's not the one who made the decision.
    Moreover I don't think Van Halen fans can be expected to have guessed some of the personal stuff going on which we are only learning now. They were not communicating and wanted their reasoning to remain under wraps.

    This is the annoying way of the world now it seems. I guess Brett now must put out an official press release profusely apologizing to the world.

    link to a repost of the "Dirty Cell" interview that was referenced in this interview. Eddie was talking about the first time he really heard Wolf sing in a 5th grade school project

    Default FORBES interview of WVH

    Lol! I apologize for nothing Iíve ever said about Wolf. Sorry if anyone is expecting me to. If I said that I had a very good reason to in my mind. I donít know who this metalsludge character is but if heís that dork that runs that really lame website making fun of 80s metal bands, heís one of the biggest hypocrites around and also unfunny. So I really donít care what he thinks about me. I have no problem owning up to anything Iíve ever posted on here.

    Iíve never hid any of my feelings about how Mike was treated and how Wolf took over his position. And I never will.

    I havenít done anything wrong towards Wolfgang, nor have a stalked him around and berated him on the net and social media like so many other assholes have. I said my feelings about situations on MY OWN website and left it alone after that. If people canít handle that I felt a certain way about him back then, then they can leave. Sorry to be blunt about this. Most of you guys know my feelings about everything anyway.

    I didnít read this interview, but if he doesnít want the support of this website, itís ok. I didnít create this website for him, I created it for Van Halen the band. Not just his dad.

    I think weíve done a lot of good for him and everyone associated with the band for 21 years, but if he doesnít think so thatís fine. Life goes on folks. I enjoyed meeting him in 2012 and my wife really liked taking a picture with him. So whatever. And to be honest guys theyíve never really acknowledged we exist anyway except for Daveís people who reached out to us in 2012 to be part of the media shows. Just remember Van Halen didnít do that for us, Dave did. The VHND has always gotten the glory that way, and you know itís probably a good thing actually.

    I feel horrible for him that his father died because I just had my father die who was my hero too so I know EXACTLY how he feels. I think about my dad every day and Iím sad almost every day. Just like him Iím sure. I already said I wasnít even that big of a fan of the song that I heard but I appreciate how good of a musician he is and the sentiment, so I donít know how much more honest I can be about Wolfgang and my feelings on him. I wish him success. I was glad to see him atop the iTunes list. Thatís all Iíve got to say.

    So we can stop posting about me now and go back to what this topic was about. I appreciate you guys sticking up for me but thereís no reason to. Thank you.

    I was just joking Brett. The way of the world is now people getting shit for things they said decades ago and then apologizing for because of being publicly ostracized, which is one of the most annoying things in the world.
