Wolfgang Van Halen Pays Tribute To His Late Father Eddie With New Song “Distance”


Eddie Van Halen‘s son Wolfgang Van Halen has paid tribute to his late father with a newly debuted track, “Distance“. The song comes from Wolfgang‘s Mammoth WVH solo project. He commented of the track:

“As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life.”

The track was penned by Wolfgang prior to his father’s untimely death due to cancer this past October, with Eddie himself having heard it before his passing. Wolfgang commented further on the track:

“I never intended ‘Distance‘ to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release. This is for him. I love and miss you, Pop.”

All proceeds from the single will go towards The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
