    Great job Wolf! Talented, no doubt. Ed would be so proud.

    Blown away... very modern yet his own thing. Confident strong vocals and all the instrumentation is spot on. I love that he didn’t go for the big EVH type solo...but notice that Trem picking? He came by that naturally!

    very nice! It's good to see him doing his thing, it would be a bummer if he made a copy of his father work. It's refreshing to hear new things coming.

    Touching song and lyrics, a memorable tribute with the video too...I'm sure both he and dad are proud of that one.

    EDIT: man, on a second listening I felt moved by that line at the end of the chorus "you'll be okay"...I remember an interview with Valerie, she said they were at his side when he passed and his last words to them we're "you'll be okay" as he smiled and died. Not sure if Wolfie consciously used that or it's a happy coincidence but it's a nice touch.

    That is really touching, a great memoir to his father.
