The bass player and the youngest member of Van Halen, Wolf Van Halen got pretty angry with the rumors around the future of the band and strongly reacted to the fan page, that spread the fake news, referring to his family.
As you know, the sudden death of the legendary guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, has shattered nearly the whole world, from his most beloved ones to the global metal and rock communities.
The legend passed away on October 6, 2020, at the age of 65 since the cancer cells had moved to his brain. Prior to that, Van Halen had fought with tongue and throat cancers since the 2000s by receiving treatment in Germany.
The most devastated one with the great loss and the son of Eddie, Wolfgang Van Halen, has taken both Twitter and Instagram to share tear-inducing throwback photos and videos about his father to honor his legacy and remind his fans once again how amazing a musician and a father Eddie Van Halen was.
After days of silence on social media, Wolfgang has returned to Twitter to express his anger at the rumors that Van Halen is not over yet. Wolf responded to a fan page that says there is a strong possibility that the band is not over yet and they’re planning to come back with Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony.
Targetting not only this account but also all the people who try to capitalize on these awful times, Wolfgang said they’re just spreading some shitty lies. He continued by explaining that anyone peddling this shit is not only hurting the fans but hurting him and his family.
Here’s what was said in the news Wolfgang reacted:
“Van Halen Update: There is a good strong possibility that the band is not over (like it or not).
This is the word that is being talked at the VH camp. Sammy Hagar: Vocals, Michael Anthony: Bass guitar, Alex Van Halen: Percussion, and Wolfgang Van Halen on guitar.
It has been mentioned that Eddie Van Halen told his son and brother, I give you my blessing.”
Wolf Van Halen responded as:
“This is just a shitty lie attempting to capitalize on these awful times. Please stop with this. Anyone peddling this shit is not only hurting the fans, but hurting me and my family.”
