  1. Wolfgang was also a member…. Where is he on the list? Now that he would of inherited Eddie’s fortune

  2. sammy hagar the vocalist who made changes to van halen made the music feel more character and more colorful and the feel of love in its era

  3. >> Yeah….we like to forget about that <<

    Cmon dude. Can you really call yourself a true VH fan saying that about Gary? The album may not have been as popular as the rest, but there's good songs on VHIII. The live shows were epic!

  4. You say Eddie is the richest at $120 mil, but then go on to say Sammy is worth $150. Last time I checked, 150 is higher than 120

  5. It doesn’t really matter how much each member of Van Halen is/was worth, does it? Some seem to mention Wolf- Well, I’m SURE Eddie left a will, and he did have a wife… I’m also sure that Eddie made
    sure his wife would never want for anything.. After his wife, ( or before his wife was mentioned in the will, IDK) I would bet that Wolf got the bulk of Eddie’s fortune, including the recording studio, which he built with and for Wolf, with him in mind, and all his cars- what would his wife do with them besides SELL them? So, pretty sure he left those to Wolf, with a few exceptions, of course, giving one or two to much loved friends, and other family, like Alex, who he wanted to make sure they knew he loved them, and thought of them by leaving them something.. Same with his guitars- some to friends and mostly, to Wolf.. Wolf was Eddie’s WORLD! Eddie loved his son to the moon and back, and never forgot who mothered his son..
    The rest of the bandmembers have lives to live yet, and the story is still open for them.. Who knows how their money is tied up- cars, property, homes, etc. In the end, its who they love and loved them back, and are there for them that will tell their stories in the end.. We’ll see..
    I DO just wanna say, that it was Eddie’s one of a kind guitar playing that brought my interest to the band, back in the late 70’s, and my love, interest, never left- just call me ” old faithful” ❤, like a lot of other fans who loved Van Halen and still want to cry that the band is gone now, but ESPECIALLY, that Eddie’s gone.. 😢That still hurts, to a lot of us, and might, just, always…💔 And Wolf- he’s go a long full life ahead, in rock n roll, if thats the path he chooses- but his possibilities are endless! I just hope its in rock n roll because he IS so talented!🤘❤
    Gary Cherrone? Really? 🤔Think about that decision….

  6. Vh went from a rock band to a Moe band when smy joined. Would have never bought an album if samm y was 1st. Never bought one after 1984. It ended for me then.

  7. 1. After that many years of killing it, they should all be worth at least twice that much. Music industry is such a racket.

    2. How is Michael Anthony worth as much as the Diamond (sorry Michael), after all, wasn’t it David Lee Roth’s father who funded the band in the beginning?

    3. Didn’t Sammy (2/3rds his dough?) and Eddie start the Cabo Wabo Cantina together?

    4. If I had to choose I’d take the David Lee Roth era, pure rock and showmenship!

    Is that a word?😄
