    When I see those recently cleaned up videos of Ed from ‘78 going into these crazy body movements and shim shams while banging out his solos, both my eyes and ears are mesmerized! This new kid from Italy, whose name forever escapes me, is frightfully boring to watch. He makes me not care that he’s sitting on a unique right hand three finger picking technique.
    I know a guy who organizes big parties and he has had bands actually cancel because they are scared to perform live. You will never learn the craft of entertaining sitting in your basement playing through your audio interface. That’s like learning about sex by masturbating to internet porn.

      Wolfgang never earned his entertainer merit badge. He’s a basement wanker but he has his dad’s studio to wank in but it’s the same thing.

          Ed was not a natural entertainer. He admitted himself he would just stand there and play and Alex would throw drumsticks at him telling him to get his ass moving. Getting Roth in the band helped in that element but Eddie put the effort in and became one of the coolest stage stormers ever. Mike said Van Halen hired a choreographer to help them with their stage presentation and they would film the shows to see how they could improve. This is called being in the game and being a pro. Now you fuckin kid, time to get serious if you want to stay in the game.

                MeatWolf must be approaching 500 POUNDS!!! And this crazy cow is preaching about "the body needs nutrition" and "there's nothing wrong with indulging"!!!

                Jesus Christ, the fat son is just a few years past 30...and there's no way he doesn't already have early heart disease!!

                I was just watching some Van Halen live footage from 2012...and MeatWolf wasn't exactly Karen Carpenter...but he looked...okay. Comparing his weight from where he was a decade ago to where he is now...
                It is literally difficult to actually look at Wolfgang!! He just looks so gross, so huge... I know I sound mean, but it's fucking disgusting!!!

                  I think she’s more nutty than Ed was. Ed once he cleaned up and got off the ethanol and chemicals seemed fine.

                    I hear ya...but WolfGangbang probably just sees this as another thing to resent about being in show business.

                    He probably thinks his complete lack of a stage persona is some sort of badge of honor.

                    I was watching some footage of WolfGangbang performing live...and he just sort of stood there...like a big lump of poop on the stage. One of the only times he moved was to lift his big, fat leg onto a guitar pedal to switch on an effect.

                    He has the charisma of a large black sweat rag.

                    Another thing WolfGangbang doesn't get is:
                    He doesn't have great songs. If you're going to be in the business and don't put the real work into writing great songs, you need something else dynamic about your stage presentation.

                    He's so entitled (his shit doesn't stink), he probably thinks every generic rock track he writes in 5150, recording instrument-by-instrument, is as great as any song on FAIR WARNING or ELECTRIC LADYLAND...or even OK COMPUTER or SUPERUNKNOWN.

                    SO...because he's already convinced that he's as talented and creative as his father (he might even think he's more talented because his dad didn't write the vocals), he doesn't need to do anything about his stage persona or his image.

                    I wonder what WolfGangbang thinks about his 2nd album only reaching #29. Does it bother him? Who is he going to blame for this? Whose fault is it? (I bet, in his mind, it's somehow Dave's fault...or somehow Alex's fault...he's probably one of those guys who takes all the credit when something good happens...but when it doesn't go well, he finds someone to blame.)

                      I think we are seeing the reason Ed crawled into the bottle so much. Can you imagine being married to her? Ed should have divorced her before she got pregnant with Wolfie.

                        No pro is going to get on social media and insult and fight with fans. You go on social media to promote your band and thank the fans for supporting you. But like mother like son. Only a fool spills their soul on social media.

                          Yes. And Ed had a sweetness about him when he wasn't drunk...and when he wasn't bitter.

                          If you read Ed's 2015 interview about Van Halen's "hopefully long" future, there was a sweetness in his words. He talked about Dave being "incredibly funny" and how they could sometimes just finish each other's sentences because they'd known each other for so long. He was truly excited about there finally being a live album with Dave (yes, some of you don't like TOKYO DOME...but I fucking really enjoy it...listened to it again yesterday while I was making dinner). He was excited about finally releasing some unreleased music from the band's archives...and excitedly talking about tons of footage (even 8mm film footage of Alex & Eddie playing music with their dad more than 50 years before). In 2015, Van Halen was an ongoing project/endeavor for Eddie...he still had a "sky's the limit" attitude, excitedly talking about "the next album" with Dave (and MeatWolf).

                          You listen to Val talk...she just talks quickly and rambles on and on about herself...and her need to "indulge"...just me, me, me, me, me.

                          When Eddie was sober and not in a bitter state, he could be very likeable...and he would actually talk nicely about fans and the other band members (not just himself). Eddie was SO talented...but he really wasn't constantly full of himself in 2015 (unlike 1996-1999).

                          Wolfgang certainly seems to have learned what kind of a person he wants to be from his mom...NOT his dad.

                            Ed was dealing with several health problems. The problems and the medications can affect a person in a bad way. Liver problems can chemically change a person where they develop some personality disorders. But yeah the people who knew Ed said he was a great guy.

                              Absolutely. People like to say that the alcoholic has "no one to blame but themselves," and maybe there is some truth in that. But people who are happy and/or feel good about themselves don't seek solace in a bottle.

                              To answer your question: FUCK NO, I cannot imagine being married to a woman like that. I dated a lot of different girls before I met my wife and decided (pretty quickly) that I wanted to marry her (though I still took my time with courtship because people should always take their time and be sure). Eddie was blinded by the fact that a Hollywood T.V. star was into him. He jumped in, headfirst, married her super-quickly. (Dave was apparently watching from the sidelines, confused...Dave apparently did NOT understand why Eddie was so starstruck.)

                              And then, Eddie was in a relationship with a totally self-absorbed Hollywood girl who was used to everyone paying attention to her. I bet she railroaded Eddie in that marriage.

                              VH fans never really consider why it was so important for Eddie to build that studio in his own backyard. YES, he wanted "musical control"...a place in which he could immediately work on his ideas, like a laboratory. BUT...he also wanted a place to go hide. (He said once that he feels like the house is Valerie's...she makes all the decisions about what they put in the house. But the studio was Ed's...and he was always escaping there...recording all night...even sleeping there.)

                                People in bad marriages often drink to escape the pain.

                                My oldest friend did that. His wife was a fucking cunt...always bossing him around...constantly being narcissistic...trying to keep him from his own parents and making them spend so much time with her family (sound familiar?). My buddy became a serious alcoholic. It got bad. He's my oldest friend...I love this guy. And I was so fucking worried.

                                Guess when he quit drinking? (It's not a hard answer to guess.)
