Eddie Van Halen’s son and talented bass guitarist, Wolfgang Van Halen, took to his official Twitter account to share his thoughts about the death of the original bass guitarist of Van Halen.
Back in 1972 when Eddie and Alex Van Halen established the band, they added Mark Stone as a bass guitarist. However, they decided to replace him with Michael Anthony in 1974. This week, Stone passed away due to cancer and saddened the community.
Wolfgang stated that it is so heartbreaking to see this news and revealed that he met Stone a few times before his death. Also, Wolfgang mentioned how a great personality he was.
While mourning the death of Stone and paying his tribute to the original bass guitarist of Van Halen, Wolfgang didn’t forget to pray for his soul and shared his condolences for his family.
However, one of the haters of Wolfgang wanted to make a pretty bad accusation about the death of Mark Stone, even though the band members were mourning his death.
A Twitter user named Domoraud claimed that sorrow is the reason for his death because Eddie Van Halen fired him and took his own son as a bass guitarist to the band. But, Wolfgang had something to tell about this terrible accusation.
Wolfgang replied that this guy has no idea what he is talking about, and he needed to educate himself before blaming someone. Also, Wolfgang said that this behavior is pathetic and disrespectful to the death of Stone.
Here is what Wolfgang Van Halen said:
“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 named Domoraud replied:
“Sorrow killed him. He has been fired from Van Halen by Eddie who took his own son has a bass player for the band. Unfair. May he RIP.”
Wolfgang Van Halen replied:
“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.”
