Van Halen former bassist Wolfgang Van Halen recently shared posts on his official Twitter page revealing his deceased father Eddie Van Halen’s reaction towards his debut solo album while it was still in the making and apparently, Wolfgang did not want his father to take part in his album.

As you may know, Wolfgang Van Halen recently announced his upcoming debut album from his solo band Mammoth WVH. Van Halen also released his single ‘Distance’ on November 16 which was dedicated to his father Eddie Van Halen.

During a recent interview, Wolfgang was asked about his father’s role in his album since the album has been in the making for a long time before Eddie Van Halen’s death. Wolfgang revealed that his father did not participate in his album other than being a proud dad since Wolfgang wanted to create the album on his own.

Here is what Wolfgang said:

He didn’t take any part in it. The only part he took in it was just being a proud dad. Any time he sat in the studio, he would just take it all in and let me fly. He didn’t wanna touch it. He wanted to see what I could do and he was really proud of that.”

After the interview, a famous website released an article about Wolfgang’s interview and shared it on their official Twitter page. However, Wolfgang Van Halen shared a post on his official Twitter page reacting to their post, and apparently, he did not like the way they put it and strictly stated that he was the one to create the album on his own.

Here is how was the headline that Wolf has commented:

“Wolfgang Van Halen Says His Father Didn’t Want To Get Involved In Making Of Mammoth WVH Album: ‘He Didn’t Wanna Touch It'”

Here is what Van Halen said:

“Well, that’s a horribly backward way of putting it when you pick and choose words and take things out of context to make a clickbait-y as FUCK headline. This makes it seems like he hated it. He couldn’t have been happier with it, or prouder of it.

Later on, Wolfgang Van Halen shared another post and revealed how his father really felt about his album and stated that Wolfgang was the one to made the album on his own and wanted to create his own voice rather than being a kid wanting help from his father.

He also stated that Eddie Van Halen was happy to be there and experience the process of the making as a proud father while sounding furious towards the news.

Here is what Wolfgang said:

“But for real. It’s MY album. I was the one who didn’t want him to be a part of it. Because that’s what everyone would expect. ‘Oh surprise surprise, little kid couldn’t get it done without his daddy’ As I’ve said countless times before, I need to forge my own path.

He was just so happy to be there and watch it happen. Any time he came to the studio it was as a proud father, witnessing his son continue his legacy on his own. Not milking the name for an easy way out. Sorry. Really grinds my gears when people try to speak for Pop. Fuck off.”
