Wolfgang Van Halen calls the rumor about the band’s future “a s–tty lie.”
Over the weekend, rumors from a private Van Halen fan group on Facebook reached Eddie Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang.
The rumor said Wolfgang and Alex Van Halen would team up with former members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, with Wolfgang switching to guitar, in order to continue making music as Van Halen.
Wolfgang pulled no punches shutting down the rumor.
Eddie Van Halen died on October 6 after a years-long battle with cancer.
Last week we found video with a soundboard feed from what we now know was the final Van Halen concert while Eddie Van Halen was still alive. You can watch that full set here.
