He’s Pretty Pissed

In an interview on Trunk Nation in November, Wolfgang Van Halen explained that he will “absolutely not” play Van Halen songs with his new band Mammoth WVH because he wanted it to be “different.”

And now, Wolfgang didn’t mince words on social media when someone told him to pay tribute to his father. A Facebook user commented on Wolfgang’s page, “Wolfie, I like your stuff. I just think the time to honor Dad is now. You’ve already shown you can stand on your own!”

To which, Wolfgang replied with: “I honor my dad by existing and doing what I do everyday. I’m not f**kin’ playing ‘Panama’ for you guys.”

He then posted a screenshot on Twitter and captioned it with, “Y’all are never gonna f**kin stop are ya.”

“I’m gonna cover the Bowie/Jagger version of ‘Dancing in the Street’ just to piss y’all off,” he added.

“*Plays in band with Dad* ‘That spoiled brat is just riding his daddy’s coattails’ *Plays in own band without covering VH* ‘Yo, why isn’t he riding his daddy’s coattails??’” he noted in the same thread.

He even considered putting that particular comment on a t-shirt: “Lol, I should get a shirt that says ‘I’m not f**kin’ playing Panama for you guys.’”

After missing out on some shows because a member of his team tested positive for Covid-19, Mammoth WVH are back on tour providing support for Guns N’ Roses through October 3.
