Wolfgang Van Halen says he won’t be sitting in during David Lee Roth‘s final upcoming Las Vegas shows at the House of Blues. During a chat with Spin, the Mammoth WVH leader and son of the late, Eddie Van Halen was pressed about making a cameo during the dates and responded, “I don’t think so. . .” When pressed that Roth had mentioned an appearance possibly happening, Wolfgang laughed and said, “Yeah, I know. I don’t know about that (laughs).”

Regarding the possibilities of his uncle Alex Van Halen drumming during the run, adding, “Well, I’m not talking for Al or anything, but I haven’t heard. I haven’t talked to Al about it, but I mean, that doesn’t really seem like something Al would do.”

He went on to say, “The thing with Van Halen that people should have learned right now is that if it doesn’t come from them, it’s not true. And Al has not made any public statements about this. So I wouldn’t expect it. If he didn’t say it, it’s probably not true. People love to talk about dad and the way he ran the band, but that’s not really true. Al’s the kind of the one who was in charge and in the way that the band publicly sort of related.”

Wolfgang is currently in the process of updating his and his father’s -legendary 5150 L.A. studio, which was the home to Van Halen — and now Mammoth WVH — since 1983. He was asked about the possibility of him finally going into the archive to deal with his dad’s legendary unissued works: “Like I said, a monumental effort that needs to have its proper time dedicated to which, y’know, it’ll happen eventually. But as I said, don’t plan on it. Don’t wait for it.”
