    Let’s give Wolfgang Van Halen his due as bassist in VH. Eddie tried replacing Mike countless times. I love Mike. But Ed always wanted someone to challenge him. That’s why he loved Sam as a musician. Ed never pulled the trigger on a new bassist, maybe because at least Mike wouldn’t ever be in the way. It worked. But Wolf did the trick. He was great.

    Wolfie's pretty damn good at everything. I was really impressed with his voice above all.

    He has that musical genius blood running through his veins.
    Sings and plays all the instruments quite well.

    This is terrible to say. But it is what it is.

    If he would lose 50+ pounds, he would already be the front man for a big time band.
