He is a very competent bass player. Of course, just look at who his daddy is. It’s no wonder. 🙂 Eddie Van Halen is one of the best guitarists to have ever walked this earth.

He looks like both parents, but more valerie IMO

At any age, being on stage with thousands of people in the audience must be surreal, but at 16? That has to be mind blowing.

I’ve been reading reviews of the VH shows for a few weeks and the majority of the things I have seen regarding Wolfgang are quite positive.

He seems to be holding up his end of the deal very well and is probably having one heck of a time up there on stage!

It’s not that him being 16 that matters, His father was long into writing the first VH songs at that age. If anyone wondered how he would do all there is to say is “DNA”

When i went to see them in calgary, Wolfie did very well, as far a bass and backround vocals. He did great in my opinion 😀
