    Hey guys,

    Was thinking the other day about Janie....seems to me something not right there between she and Wolf. Never comment or like each other's posts on social media, they never comment or mention each other in interviews etc.....seems strange.

    I feel bad for her; I know she likely received a nice portion to take care of her for life but she lost her husband of around ten years and she obviously loved Ed; in addition I think we have to acknowledge that along with Wolf we would not have had the last three tours and ADKOT perhaps if not for Janie.

    Just thinking out loud......
    It's 5150 time!

    I donít think weíll ever know enough about those relationships to understand the full story. Nor should we.

    Iíve got my own thoughts, but Iíll keep them to myself.

    I will say I know she experienced severe major losses in a row last year - thatís super rough and I feel for her.

    That is interesting, but a step is a step. My ex divorced her third husband last year and my sons have nothing to do with him, not out of any ill will, he's just not there dad.
    Might be she's just not his mom, maybe was tough on him , Ed and Val splitting
    Dealing with it.

    Yeah, it's his stepmom. I am sure they were cordial, and I am sure Wolf as smart as he is realizes the important role Janie played in Ed's life.

    But as said before, the only thing they had to bring them together was Ed, and he's gone. Not really surprising when you look at it from 30,000 feet, but we have no idea what their relationship is, and we have no right to know.

    I'm grateful for the role she played in helping Ed get sober and taking care of him in a very difficult stage of his life. I'm so sorry for the successive losses she has endured in the last two years. She'll always be part of the Van Halen family to me.
    I miss Eddie Van Halen.

    One thing the last few years have shown me is that we as fans, don't really know what the dynamic is regarding VH, the members, personal relationships, etc Obviously can offer an opinion of what we think but definitely won't be judging or thinking person X should behave a certain way with person

    That said I don't know if Wolfgang every gave shout outs to Valerie's husband V2.0 I have not seen any on Twitter. So why should we expect him to do so to Janie or show signs of a very close relationship? its pretty likely that Janie and whomever Val's husband is are just there spouses. He had a great relationship with his parents and there wasn't really an emotional void that required him to accept them as Mom or Dad V2.0

    I am a Step Dad and while the kids are between 29 and 35. Been in their lives for 11 years. We have our own individual relationships which are very good. However I won't be their dad even if they are currently not speaking to their father. I won't step in thinking I am. I don't press the issue. I am simply there if needed. Some other guy in my shoes may be the dad. He may be viewed as the evil step dad. Its different strokes for different folks. Not one size fits all

    She has been through a lot in the last year with losses of several family members including Ed. I know how fucked up I was just from losing my dad, I canít imagine what she went through.

    Iím fine with this discussion I just want to remind everyone that we need to be respectful towards her here. She was Edís rock for a long time.

    Yep, she was his rock and right by his side all the way to the end. I can't imagine the pain and suffering she has had to endure with all the family losses coming all in just a few months of each other.

    Ed was a public figure because of his work, but I don't know if everything about him needs to be public. Maybe his relationships can stay private. The interesting thing about EVH was his music. I don't think the stuff from his "time off" is vhlinks material. Because then where do you stop? I'm hoping we'll avoid a tabloid approach when it comes to Ed and the band.

    Didn't she lose her mom, husband and brother all within a year? I mean, dear God, I would be spitting bubbles.

    I also wondered, what if she decides to move on and move out, what happens to 5150 since it's on the property? Does Wolf legally own the property?

    I wonder if it's set up under the Van Halen corporation and she gets to live there but isn't actually owner of the property? I always thought she played a huge role in getting Ed sober and clean.
