WOLFGANG VAN HALEN released a musical tribute to his dad yesterday. It’s his debut single “Distance”, which he called an “open letter” to EDDIE VAN HALEN. It includes the chorus, “No matter what the distance is, I will be with you.”
And the video is old home movies of Eddie being an AMAZING dad to Wolfgang.
It ends with a voicemail Eddie left for his son, praising the song and saying, quote, “I’m so proud of you and I love you so much. Call me if you get a chance, I just want to hear your voice.”
He says, quote, “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.”
