Wolfgang Van Halen was voted among the world’s best rock guitarists by readers of Musicradar.
The website devoted to musicians recently rounded up its year-end polls – from pop/funk to metal and progressive – to rank the ten best guitarists in rock today. Wolfgang came in at #7.
Here’s what Musicradar had to say about Wolfgang:
Following the illness and eventual untimely death of Eddie Van Halen in Autumn 2020, the young Van Halen threw himself into a solo album in the truest sense — writing and recording all the instruments on Mammoth WVH self-titled debut. He’s since fleshed out the band but the writing is deeply personal. Distance — a heart-on-its-sleeve gut-punch of grief —
floors us every time.
