Wolfgang Van Halen says playing his Mammoth WVH songs live on stage keeps him close to his dad.
Here is what Wolfgang had to say to Rolling Stone‘s Jon Blistein in a new article titled “Mammoth WVH, Dirty Honey Ready to Prove the Heart of Rock & Roll Is Still Beating on 2022 Tour”:
“It’s really the only thing I’ve got anymore, to feel that energy and that closeness with my dad,” said Wolfgang. “I’ll always have the memories, but there’s nothing better than just playing music live and playing the music that the two of us listened to together. We would listen to it all the time, and he was so proud and happy with it. It feels like every night I’m doing it for him.”
Wolfgang added that he’s looking forward to bringing Mammoth WVH’s music to the masses alongside fellow L.A. rockers Dirty Honey.
“To be part of this sick bill. Dirty Honey are awesome,” he said. “It’s really fun to be two of the youngest and hungriest bands in the L.A. rock space, banding up and kicking ass together… We’re both kind of echoing the past, but making it our own and taking it to the future.”
