As if 2020 was not enough with the coronavirus pandemic, lockdowns, and restrictions, it was also a devastating year for Wolfgang Van Halen due to the loss of his beloved father, Eddie Van Halen.
Fans, family, friends, and other musicians were all in deep pain after the heartbreaking news, however, nobody was hurt as much as Eddie’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen as he expressed his emotions multiple times through his social media posts after the incident.
Recently, Wolfgang Van Halen shared pictures with his father on his official Instagram page and expressed his emotions about 2020. Wolfgang stated that he will be a different person this year and despite the beautiful things that happened last year, it’s all bittersweet due to the loss of his father.
Here is what Wolfgang stated in the caption of his post:
I’ll never be the same person I was before this year. Hopefully, I can figure out how to process it all, but only time will tell I guess.
Some wonderful things did happen that I’m very thankful for, but it’s all so bittersweet. I wish he was here.”
He went on to say:
“It’s very hard to keep going and at this point, I still don’t know-how. Time keeps moving regardless and you somehow find a way because you don’t have a choice. As much as I’d like to just crawl in a hole and stay there for the rest of my life, my father would be so disappointed. I’ve gotta keep moving. If not for me, then for him.
It’s been such an awful fucking year for a myriad of reasons. All things considered, I hope everyone is staying safe and well.
Here’s to hoping things start looking up in 2021. I’ll see you all there.”
As you may recall, Wolfgang Van Halen announced the heartbreaking news of losing the legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen after a long battle with throat cancer via a Twitter post three months ago.
