Wolfgang Van Halen Reacts To His Grammy Nomination For Best Rock Song
Mammoth WVH frontman Wolfgang Van Halen was nominated for Grammy for the first time in the category of Best Rock Song, and he shared his feelings about this exciting news on his official Twitter page.
Wolf Van Halen started working on a solo album in 2015 and finished recording it in 2017. He had intended to release it in 2018, but he decided to postpone it to spend more time with his father, Eddie Van Halen, whose health was deteriorating at the time. Following his father’s passing in November 2020, Wolf decided to focus on his solo career.
Wolfgang is the founder of the band Mammoth WVH, after Van Halen’s early name Mammoth. The band’s self-titled debut album was finally released on June 11, 2021, and consists of fifteen songs in total and received positive reviews. The first release of the new album was the song ‘Distance,’ which is a tribute by Wolfgang to his father, Eddie. The heartfelt track was released approximately a month after Eddie’s passing.
In a recent post, Wolf had celebrated the first anniversary of ‘Distance’ with an emotional note. This special song also brought Wolf his first Grammy nomination in the category of Best Rock Song. In his Twitter post, Wolf explained how shocked and happy he is about his first nomination.
In addition to ‘Distance,’ the other nominated songs for the Best Rock Song category are Weezer’s ‘All My Favorite Songs,’ Kings of Leon’s ‘The Bandit,’ Paul McCartney’s ‘Find My Way’ and Foo Fighters’ ‘Waiting on a War.’
