There is just something seriously wrong with this picture. Come on! I just can't and won't buy into it with a 17 year old kid on stage. :shake: It looks like a high school band with him there IMO.

Actually, I saw that show when they were in Portland, and Wolfie didn't do too bad. Sure, I would have preferred Michael Anthony in his familiar role as bass player/amazing background vocalist. But for my money, it was Diamond Dave's drugged-out, lackluster, trying-too-hard antics that tainted that show far more than the obvious inexperience of the youngest Van Halen.

Drugged out? Or just drunk on JD? Not that there's really any difference between the two on his part when it comes to lack of professionalism. I would think that Dave would have taken this reunion tour more seriously, especially having waited so long to get back into the band. If it turns out he was in fact drugged out as you say, that's just really disappointing to hear. :shake:

I'm not sure if DLR's blank stare is from "legal" (i.e. prescribed) drugs or alcohol or what, but when you see that guy on talk shows and such, he's whacked out. Something is permanently wrong with him, I think. He has this kind of "false-happy" look on his face all the time.

It's sad.

Van Halen - Discography Reviews

Van Halen (Self Titled) 1978 :star::star::star::star::star:



Inner Sleeve


VH1. No, not the channel. The Album. This ranks only slightly behind 1984 as the best Van Halen album ever IMO. What's not to love about this one. The bulk of this album still makes up a good chunk of their set list: Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love, Eruption, Ice Cream Man, Jamie's Cryin', Runnin' With The Devil and You Really Got Me. This album still holds up rather well after all these years. I still remember getting this on Christmas and playing it over and over. My Mom was kinda regretting getting me this album, especially on Christmas because I kept playing Running With The Devil over and over. My bad. Sorry.

Fave Songs: All of 'em.

It's all about Van Halen (I). That's a hell of a way to "introduce" yourself. :)

Peace...
