In 2007, Van Halen announced a reunion that included three out of four of the original members. Who was the new member? Well, that would be Eddie Van Halen’s son and Alex Van Halen’s nephew Wolfgang Van Halen who would be filling Michael Anthony’s shoes as the band’s bassist.
Since then, Wolfgang has been tearing it up on stage pulling off some of the best bassist-to-guitarist chemistry with his dad. However, now he is flying solo, at least for now.
Wolfgang has posted several photos and a video of himself hard at work in the studio recording his own original music. It seems as though he is pretty much doing all of the instrumentation himself, though I’m sure given his various connections, both in and out of the family, that some legendary rockers will appear on the project.
As of now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that he is stepping away from Van Halen.
Below are his various posts of himself in the studio, but be sure to check out the clip he posted of himself playing drums! Holy cow!
