Eddie Van Halen‘s son and the youngest member of Van Halen, Wolfgang responded to a fan on Twitter who claimed former bassist of the band Mark Stone died of sorrow caused by Eddie when he fired and replaced him with his son.
As you may know, Van Halen’s original bassist Mark Stone sadly passed away on September 26, 2020. It was revealed by his family that Mark had been battling with cancer for a while until his death. His brother, Brad Stone, shared the devastating news of his death with a short message on his Instagram account.
Van Halen family bid farewell to the talented bassist, who played with the band between the years 1972 and 1974, on social media platforms. Current bassist of Van Halen, Wolfgang also paid tribute to Mark Stone with a tweet he posted recently.
In his tweet, Wolf Van Halen wrote:
“Heartbreaking news to hear of Mark’s passing. Met him a few times and he was a wonderful man. My heart goes out to his family.”
A Twitter user nicknamed Domoraud commented on Wolf’s tweet claiming Mark Stone died from sorrow since Eddie Van Halen fired him from the band and replaced him with his own son. Wolfgang got furious seeing such a terrible allegation about his father and told him to learn the facts before making accusations about people.
Here’s how Wolf reacted to the comment about Eddie and Mark Stone:
“You clearly have no idea what the hell you’re talking about. Educate yourself before you make wild claims like this. It’s pathetic. Have some respect.”
Another Van Halen fan joined the conversation by stating that guy had no idea about Van Halen history, therefore his comments were invalid. However, Domoraud stated that he was a Van Halen fan since 1984 and read about the issue between Eddie and Mark from the magazines at the time.
Wolfgang once again replied to the false accusations posting the picture of a little girl reading a magazine upside down and claimed this was how that guy obtained the information about his father at the time.
Here’s how Wolfgang responded:
“You ‘reading’ those magazines and getting all of that reliable info.”

Sure I don't know all the details about VH history but I know enough to write what I wrote. Like it or no, it's the truth. Stone him self said that VH didn't want him to participate to the recording of the last album he was involve in.
