    Default Running with the Dweezil - New VH podcast!

    https://www.dweezilzappa.com/pages/c...th-the-dweezil



    A podcast for all Van Halen Fans!

    Runnin’ with the Dweezil - Featuring Guitar Greats Reflecting on Edward Van Halen’s Unparalleled Legacy
    (Runnin' With The Dweezil does not claim to be endorsed by Van Halen)

    From Van Halen’s infamous backyard concerts to their electrifying 1978 debut and on through the present day, Runnin’ with the Dweezil will cover it all.

    “Our goal is to provide an entertaining in-depth look at each Van Halen album seen through the eyes of top guitarists. A song-by-song discovery of the nuances in the music that literally changed people’s lives” says, Zappa.

    "Production of the episodes began in the summer of 2020 and I was really hoping to share the stories from our guests with Edward,” Zappa says.

    "Then as now, there continues to be an outpouring of gratitude for all of Edward's contributions to music. It would have been a dream to record an episode with him that would explore his own personal musical journey. His sudden loss has inspired an even deeper connection to his music for me and so many others. We want to honor and celebrate him and that's why we're committing such an enormous amount of time and effort to make this podcast unlike any other.”

Feeding America also supports programs that prevent food waste and improve food security among the people we serve; educates the public about the problem of hunger; and advocates for legislation that protects people from going hungry.

    I like Dweezil and I understand 5% is going to Mr. Holland's Opus and Feeding America but I have to say this rubs me the wrong way, and I know people here will probably give me shit for my opinion.

    Donate all of it if you're going to charge for this. Portions of which have been discussed by some of these artists in other interviews on YouTube for years. I've heard Dweezil, Vai , Nuno, Gilbert, and Satch discuss VH plenty of times. I've watched a ton of videos dissecting the brown sound as well.

    I agree 100%

    Honestly I wanted to post when I first read the initial post , but I backed off



    Everything in my opinion right now is way way way to early

    For Christ sake let the family grieve - Bad enough losing a family member , and then add the Holidays on top of it

    I loved what Wolfie has done , God Bless Him , but leave it at that for a long long time as far as I am concerned

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS

    Honestly- I just clicked the VHND story & gotta say I'm shocked....

    I'm not one to comment impulsivley without knowing for sure what the score is....but Jesus....I'll go ahead & comment anyways Good God look at what's listed I can't see anything even remotely enticing & wtf is up with the timing hard to view this as anything other than a pathetic cash grab. Coming from Dweezil who we know Ed produced his first single is just a hige surprise. But not in the good way.

    Wtf.

    Seriously people canít just do something unless itís for money? It would be nice to just have a discussion of these albums without having to fucking pay for it. You can go on YouTube and hear lots of smart guys talking about Van Halen for free so whatever. Most famous guitar players have already given their views about VH a billion times anyway, itís already public knowledge. I mean Iíd rather listen to a guy like Rick Beato talk about the music anyway honestly.

    Very disappointing that Dweezil is now trying to cash in on Edís death too. Pathetic.

    Now if ALL (not some piddly 5%) money for the shows was being donated to cancer research or to that Mr. Hollandís Opus that Ed supported for music for children then thatís different. But itís not, basically all is going in his fucking pocket. Fuck him.

    Surprised to see this from Dweezil. He definitely drops a few notches in my book.

    And he wanted Ed to do the show. Not sure he would've been cool with this.

    Yes I was shocked as well...I love pods (especially the D&D Unchained one which is FREE) so when I saw this come in my feed I was excited but now this? I am at a loss for words frankly......I listen to quite a few podcasts and NONE of them cost a dime.

    This is super disappointing. Initial ads for this, and calling it a podcast, were not indicative of a price tag being attached. I could understand monetizing via ads and sponsorships, but this just feels gross.

    Heís not really trying to cash in on Edís death. Production started Summer 2020 and costs need to be recouped. I also find it hard to believe Dweezil would do anything against Edís or the familyís wishes. Weíre assuming he is, but we just donít know.


    Iím interested to hear about the quality of the production because for that price, it better be out of this world good. Quality content is relatively cheap to produce these days but maybe these episodes contain extensive behind the scenes footage? Maybe ADKOT recording footage? Not sure how that results in the bottom line cost of the product though.

    Iím not willing to shit on Dweezil for this but I donít see the point in charging money when, like you said Brett, you can go on YT and watch any number of videos about VH that contain great content for die-hard fans.

    I wouldnít be charging for it if I was Dweezil.

    1. The timing isnít good. 2. This could easily be released for a fraction of the cost.

    Make the cost a $5 donation to Hollandís Opus, or something.

    Well 5% is going to Mr Hollands Opus
    and 5% to feeding American

    But still that is a pretty steep price for a podcast especially these days. Hard to tell what the production cost without actually hearing the thing, but I am sure someone close to the site will subscribe and let us know if it is worth it.
