Wolfgang Van Halen said his favorite Mammoth WVH Track is one fans haven’t heard yet.
“I’m really proud of [the song] ‘Stone’,” said Wolfgang when asked by Metal Hammer’s Rich Hobson to nominate his favorite track from Mammoth WVH, the album due out on June 11th. “I don’t really count ‘Distance’ because it’s a bonus track, ‘Stone’ is the one I consider the album closer so I really wanted to go for broke and make an epic song.”
Along with the album’s bonus track “Distance”, Wolfgang has released four other tracks to be included on the album: “Don’t Back Down”, “Think It Over”, “You’re To Blame” and “Feel”.
Wolfgang also reflected on his time as bassist in Van Halen, particularly his experience recording the band’s final studio album – 2012’s ‘A Different Kind Of Truth’.
“It was such a fun experience,” said Wolfgang. “I’d wake up early every day excited to go to work, driving over and picking up dad like we were going to school, just getting in there and doing it.”
Wolfgang added that a follow-up to ‘ADKOT’ was never planned due to his Eddie Van Halen’s health struggles.
“It wasn’t really in the cards,” he said. “Considering by the time we toured again my dad’s health issues really started to crop up so we couldn’t really invest in that. I like to think if that hadn’t been the case we’d definitely have worked together more though.”
