Wolfgang Van Halen took to social media to address Van Halen reunion rumors that have surfaced.
The rumor started in a private Facebook fan page alleging there would be a reunion with Sammy Hagar fronting the band and Wolfgang on guitar filling in for his late father, Eddie Van Halen. Michael Anthony on bass and Alex Van Halen in his usual spot on drums. This rumor also alleges Eddie Van Halen gave his son and brother his “blessing” to continue the band without him.
The rumor then started to make the rounds and eventually Wolfgang caught wind of it, and he responded, “This is just a sh—y lie attempting to capitalize on these awful times. Please stop with this. Anyone peddling this s— is not only hurting the fans, but hurting me and my family.”
Eddie Van Halen died on October 6 following a long battle with cancer. He was 65 years old.
