Van Halen Icon Tempted To Retire After Tragedy


Eddie Van Halen’s son Wolfgang unloaded on 2020 in a new social media post as he continued to mourn his father’s death. Wolfgang said he was tempted to ‘crawl in a hole’ for the rest of his life, but he won’t retire.

Wolfgang Van Halen wrote, “Fuck 2020. I’ll never be the same person I was before this year. Hopefully I can figure out how to process it all, but only time will tell I guess.

Some wonderful things did happen that I’m very thankful for, but it’s all so bittersweet. I wish he was here.

It’s very hard to keep going and at this point I still don’t know how. Time keeps moving regardless and you somehow find a way because you don’t have a choice. As much as I’d like to just crawl in a hole and stay there for the rest of my life, my father would be so disappointed. I’ve gotta keep moving. If not for me, then for him.

It’s been such an awful fucking year for a myriad of reasons. All things considered, I hope everyone is staying safe and well.

Here’s to hoping things start looking up in 2021.

I’ll see you all there ✌️.” Wolfgang Van Halen will release his debut album as Mammoth WVH in spring 2021.
