Wolf Van Halen Clarifies A Fan’s Claim About Eddie Van Halen’s Last Shows, ‘Stop Looking For Things That Aren’t There’
Former Van Halen bassist and the founder of MammothWVH Wolfgang Van Halen shared a post on his official Twitter page reacting to a fan who made an assumption about Wolfgang’s father, late guitarist Eddie Van Halen and Wolfgang strictly stated that people should stop making theories about his father.
As many of you might know, Wolfgang Van Halen has been constantly dealing with fans who share their opinions about his father on social media platforms after the passing of Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen on October 6, 2020, after his long battle with throat cancer.
Recently, a fan shared a picture she took from a live performance of Van Halen back in North Carolina in 2012 in which late guitarist Eddie Van Halen, bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, and frontman David Lee Roth were performing altogether.
After seeing the picture, another fan made a comment about the picture stating that the legendary guitarist was having the best time while performing with his son and his long-time bandmate David Lee Roth. While up until the point there’s nothing wrong with her comment, that fan also stated that Eddie Van Halen must know that show can be the last despite the fact that the performance was from 2012.
Here is what that fan said:
“Your pics capture Eddie’s joy so well… it is obvious he was having a blast playing some new stuff, playing with Wolfgang Van Halen, and rocking with David Lee Roth… I’m betting he knew this may be the last hurrah“
After seeing that fan’s comment, former Van Halen bassist shared a post on his official Twitter page stressing the fact that they toured three more years after that performance, and Eddie Van Halen was perfectly fine during that time. In addition to this, Wolfgang also stated that fans should stop making false assumptions about his deceased father.
Here is what Wolfgang said:

We toured again 3 years later. Stop looking for things that aren’t there.
