    Default Wolfgang talks about VH1 Photoshop incident.

    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

    Well Brad was in charge of that site so Iím going to assume he did it? Who else wouldíve done it? That makes no sense because he also worked for Mike and did his site for at least a time. Maybe it was someone else.

    If I recall they had hired some other SoCal web development/multi-media outfit to do a full revamp of van-halen.com. I don't remember the name of the company... but there was speculation among the fan sites that Starks was out with the brothers, due to his on-going relationship and handling Michael's madanthonycafe.com. That was just fan talk and probably bullshit... who knows.

    I did check today and it appears Brad is still doing Mike's site... there's a reference to bobothewebmonkey on the contact page which is a nickname that Mike bestowed on Brad back in the early 2000's...

    So it was a mistake by the web-designer?

    Then why didn’t they make a statement throwing the designer under the bus back then?

    Bro, they didnít make announcements about shit. Anything, Zilch, nada.

    Plus if memory serves me correct, Eddie kinda had a lot going on in that time period.

    No web designer is going to go ahead and make a decision like that on their own.

    Let alone VAN HALEN's web designer. "Hey, I'm gonna remove Michael Anthony from the album covers today because that would be cool...."

    Default Wolfgang talks about VH1 Photoshop incident.

    As much as Iíd like to say the band isnít being honest here, you never know. I mean if youíre building a website and you really have no amazing connection to the band, you probably donít even think itís a big deal to switch the picture like that. I have a feeling whoever was working on the website was just some web designer they hired and not like some ultra Van Halen fan. They probably thought it was a clever idea. They probably didnít have to ask permission on every little thing they put up there, and were given some creative license to do what they wanted. Other than Wolfgang, the other members of the band really didnít give a fuck about the internet very much. I doubt they were monitoring every little image and thing put up there. You know they donít care.

    I appreciate Wolf's attempt to change the narrative on that sad chapter, but erasing Mike (temporarily) was purposeful and would not have been done without a certain someone's approval or direction. They reversed course when fans went ape shit, plain and simple.

    That was truly one of the low points in the history of Van Halen.
