Wolfgang Van Halen has just released “Distance”. The first single from his debut solo album Mammoth WVH. The song which was said to be his father Eddie Van Halen’s favorite track is dedicated to the late legend. The music video is comprised of old home videos of Eddie and Wolfgang. Needless to say it’s a tear jerker.
“I never intended “Distance” to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate it’s release. This is for him. I love and miss you, Pop.”
Wolfgang will be donating a portion of all proceeds from “Distance” to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation. A charity that his father was very supportive of, and one that the Van Halen family holds close.
You can view the video for “Distance” below. Just have a few tissues handy.
