Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen shared a part of Howard Stern’s podcast on his official Twitter page and confirmed his appearance on Monday’s episode of Howard Stern Show, the release day of his debut solo single ‘Distance.’
As you may remember, Wolfgang Van Halen teased his appearance on Howard Stern Show for the Monday episode by sharing a post on his official Twitter page two days ago yet he did not officially confirm himself as a guest and did not make any further explanations.
Van Halen will release his debut solo single named ‘Distance’ which is from his upcoming solo album, on Monday, November 16. Previously, Wolfgang stated that the inspiration for the song was his father, the legendary Van Halen guitarist recently deceased Eddie Van Halen.
Here is what Van Halen said about his debut solo single:
“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 this song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their own life.
I never anticipated ‘Distance’ would be the first song of mine that people would hear, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release along with me. This is for him.“
Wolfgang Van Halen recently shared a post on his official Twitter page and confirmed his appearance on the show and shared another post a few hours later, audio from Howard Stern Show in which Stern reveals that Van Halen is going to debut something that will move his fans to tears. It can be assumed that the big debut should be Van Halen’s new song ‘Distance.’
Here is what Stern said in the audio:
“Next Monday, something I’m very excited about, I’ve heard from Wolfgang Van Halen. We just lost his father and I love Eddie Van Halen and the band. Wolfgang of course missing his father, he’s gonna debut something new on our show on Monday and we’re gonna talk to him and I’m very excited about that.
Wait ’till you see what he debuts. He sent me something I’ll share with the audience on Monday that will definitely move you to tears.“
