Wolfgang Van Halen Not Interested In Playing Father’s Songs With His Band

Wolfgang Van Halen has made it clear that he is not interested in playing his late father’s songs with his new band.

The former bassist of Van Halen spoke his mind when asked about the possibility of Mammoth WVH covering Van Halen live during SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation” radio show.

“Absolutely not. If I do, I’d want it to be 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 some shit, something different,” Wolfgang told Eddie Trunk.

He added, “I refuse to tread the same ground as my dad. I need to forge my own path. I’m not gonna put out a Van Halen cover album or anything. If I do happen to, it would be under that context. It would be different.”

Wolfgang made the remarks a few days after releasing his first-ever solo song, “Distance,” in which he pays emotional tribute to his late father, Eddie Van Halen.

Further, while giving an explanation to a Twitter follower, he said, “Playing to Dad’s isolated tracks would be dumb and a complete mockery of his legacy. I don’t want to play to his tracks. . I want to play with him.”
