Wolfgang Van Halen is asked a lot about Van Halen and if he would perform his late dad’s music in concert. In a recent interview posted on LoudWire.com, he was asked and said, “Absolutely not. If I do, I’d want it to be, like, really f***ing different. I wouldn’t wanna just sit there and play ‘Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.’ I’d wanna do a cool acoustic cover of ‘Little Guitars’ or— something different. I refuse to tread the same ground as my dad. I need to forge my own path.”
Wolfgang had played as the bassist in the band alongside his dad, Eddie Van Halen and uncle, Alex Van Halen, since their reunion tour in 2007.
Another Quote From Wolfgang: “I mean, I’d never do tracks or anything. I think that’s lame as shit,” he said of how they will tackle the songs live. “So I think at some point, it might be important to get a fifth guy, like an auxiliary dude, who could do the other guitar and the background vocals.”
Wolfgang Van Halen is the son of the late-Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli
