“No, I haven’t actually spoken to Wolfgang yet. I obviously didn’t want to talk to them, I spoke briefly to Alex just after Eddie passed, I wanted them to have their privacy. I have talked to Wolfie a couple of times, and everything’s all good, obviously.
We spoke briefly after Eddie’s passing, but Alex has been pretty much grieving or however, you want to put it, pretty much been to himself. So I’m just kind of letting that happen and I’m sure at one point we’ll talk again or even get together.”
