    This is just going back many posts and really doesnít mean anything anymore, but I just wanted to comment. People need to stop blaming the fall of hair metal on grunge. The reason grunge succeeded was people were sick of the horseshit that was being put out in the pop metal scene. Bands like Extreme were part of that. Had that style of music not become self-indulgent, predictable, and boring, grunge wouldnít have killed it.

    To me thereís nothing worse than what metal became in the very late 80s and early 90s. Most of those new bands were just fucking terrible. They didnít need grunge to kill them. They were shitty already.

    There was nothing less cool than seeing two fucking long-haired dudes sitting on stools wanking More Than Words to each other. Good fucking grief. And you wonder why that shit died? Youíd rather listen to More Than Words than STP, AIC, and Soundgarden? My condolences to you.

    Every musical genre has a lifecycle. Grunge went away in a few years and morphed into alternative pop. Alanis Morrisette ruled 1995/1996 and she aint grunge. No Doubt was number 1 at end of 1996 and that sure aint grunge. Hair Metal was going out with or without Kurt. I always say this but I remember buying Soundgarden for Loud Love in 89. It was on Headbangers Ball. Faith No More had hits way before grunge. Janes Addiction too. Music was already changing.

    Concerning the Wolfy show....love how he hates anybody to talk about his dad but he and Valerie sure love to make a profit based on his name. No way in hell does he get this show without his dad's name being attached to him.

That song has become a timeless anthem. RATT is still played quite a bit on classic rock radio. Extreme and Mr. Big, far less. Nuno is a great musician, no doubt. He's not a great riff maker like a guy like Eddie was. That's what prevents him from joining the upper echelon of guitar players. He's very good. But not great.
    What didnít help was the bullet boys, enuff z nuff, winger, stryper, Nelson, and the other crap that came out.

    It was just too much.

    I saw a quick segment on one of the entertainment shows last week with Val and Wolf. Val went on and on about how "hard" wolfgang has had it and how proud she is that he worked through it.

    what a bunch of horseshit. he's been given everything he has. I mean I'm sorry his Dad died, I really am but let's be real and maybe I'm an asshole for saying this but everyone's parents eventually pass away. if he's still having issues with that go to counseling or something.

    I wish him all the best with his musical career. I wouldn't buy anything he puts out cause of the way he treats vh fans but still, I hope he has a good career for himself.

    And the shitty part about the late '80s/early '90s were all of the great bands that never made it past club/theater level because they were unfairly pigeon-holed as "hair metal".

    Badlands, Blue Murder & King's X are the 3 bands from that era that should have exploded.

    All of us lose our parents. Itís part of life. We all have to deal with it. I lost my dad the same year that Ed died. It was very very hard. It didnít stop me from living. And exactly, if heís having a hard time accepting his death or moving on from it then yeah, he needs counseling. But the idea that heís going through something that nobody else has is ridiculous.

    Like you said, heís been gifted everything in his life. Yeah he worked hard to be a good musician. Ok. BFD. Itís a lot easier to do that when you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, your dad is Eddie Van Halen, and you have access to play music 24/7. The rest of us donít have that luxury. Ed and Al didnít even have that luxury. Their story is a hell of a lot more compelling than anything Wolfgang has gone through. Give me a fucking break.

    The whole fucking thing is embarrassing.

    Exactly. G'N'R was the only good new thing in that late 80's time frame. Too bad they weren't more consistent with their style of rock.

    I should say, I liked Extreme but they weren't going to save music at the time.

    I never understood the whole grunge scene--some of it was good, but I needed more musicianship. Nirvana was shit, IMO. Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, AIC etc were all good bands. But, overall, they just weren't the answer for me. It was a nice diversion for a time, though. And they were better than the other shit that came out in the 90's like Limp Bizkit and the industrial metal (Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie). Admittedly, I bought into the hype of those bands too for a minute. LOL

    VH really needed Roth to rejoin the band after the MTV reunion--at least for an album and tour. Instead they...oh I don't have to tell you folks what happened.

    Like you said, heís been gifted everything in his life. Yeah he worked hard to be a good musician. Ok. BFD. Itís a lot easier to do that when you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth and your dad is Eddie Van Halen, and you have access to play music 24/7. The rest of us donít have that luxury. Ed and Al didnít even have that luxury. Their story is a hell of a lot more compelling than anything Wolfgang has gone through. Give me a fucking break.

    The whole fucking thing is embarrassing.
    I lost mine and it damn near killed me.


    But I recovered.
