Yesterday Wolfgang Van Halen released the first single from his Mammoth WVH solo project. That first single is “Distance”, and it has landed as the #1 song on all of iTunes.
Wolfgang took to social media saying, “#1 on @iTunes . Not just rock, but overall. I’m speechless.
“The response to Distance has been mind-blowing and I’m so thankful for each and every one of you.
“Know that the weight of this moment is not lost on me.
“Wish you were here for this, Pop.”
Regarding the writing process for “Distance” Wolfgang said, “As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life.”
As of the time of this writing “Distance has also gotten over 1.1 million views on his YouTube channel.
