    I'm sure that being a musician meant a lot of time way from home when Wolfie was a child., But it's obvious that Eddie loved being a dad, and loved his son.

    Very emotional tune and video, all my respect. Besides that, I am sure You can do something else than 14 repeated verses, maybe a further or post version of this pure and original expression

    ❤️❤️❤️ Powerful. Made more so because of the video. So much love between father and son. People are people. Rich, poor, famous or unknown. We all want that kind of connection.

    I lost my pop in '06 and it was a huge loss. I don't think the sense of loss ever leaves us. How could it? We just go on. Thumbs up Wolfgang on a great song and a beautiful tribute to your pop.

    It makes me feel kind of weird, but obviously the Man Upstairs gave me something and it touches people, and I'm just so blessed. - Eddie 👍 ... My favorite shredder that walked this EARTH 🎸

    I would guess that all of those who felt it be necessary to leave him hateful comments over Twitter and Instagram... if they have even the slightest ounce of a human soul, then they're eating their words. This is THEE best revenge for Wolfe here, with the upcoming full album and all. But more importantly a sense of closure for his father, or as best of a sense of closure as one could possibly have. You never fully recover from losing a parent that you love

    I lost my dad back in september. and the pain still there. this song helps. thanks wolfgang. my heart goes out to you and family.

  21. Victor Gasior

    Even if you didn’t like the song, how could you dislike the message of this video. A kid who loved his dad and a dad who loved his kid. Bunch of soulless motherfuckers on this planet.

  30. Noelle Seipel

    I always thought Valerie was EVH's Greatest Love...turns out it was Wolfie🥰🙏🏽

  31. Forrest Trump

    For those that may not know.. MAMMOTH was Van Halens original band name back in the day.. Great song Wolf... all the best.. Very impressed with you as a man whenever I hear you speak.. Your dad must be absolutely thrilled to see who you've become.

  32. TAPERETURN BEATS

    Beautiful! All the best on your way

  33. David Leitch

    Just from listening to this one song Wolfgang Van Halen is a very talented young man. In addition to all instruments he is playing, he really can sing! He was doing the lead and back up vocals on this song and he has that other gear in his voice where he can project and sing loud in tune and very passionately. Wolf you wrote a really good song. I hope that working on your own career brings some comfort to you and those who love you. Stay focused and I hope you will spend time Mike, Sammy, Dave and Gary they all shared life with you and your dad and as fellow musicians they will be your biggest fans.

  34. Jen D

    Wolfie, you are an amazing person. Thank you so much for this song, but mostly, thank you for being you.

  35. The Loedown

    Some reason I can't stop watching it!!!

  36. ANDRÉA DO CARMO SANTOS

    beautiful tribute Wolf ... his father was a super father, he always made a point of showing how much love and happiness he had in being with his family. I love your father since I was 12 years old (today I am 46) and I know the size of your pain, this week will be a year since I lost my dad, to this damn cancer ... mine was not a super star, but I had immense love, just like yours. Now I carry 2 pains, caused by this damn disease, my father and yours ... your music is beautiful ... :( I’m still cryin’ Don’t want this place A world without you

  37. drh 7777

    Respect to you Wolf....your Pops is proud of you

  38. Alcor moog

    Son of a legend.

  39. knotval

    I’ve watched 50 times and counting and it just gets more beautiful. It’s a gorgeous reflection of both Eddie’s heart and Wolfgang’s. Clearly Wolf inherited more than musical talent from his pop. ❤️

  40. Walter Evans

    Other than this beautiful video ....10 REASONS WHY THE WORLD KNOWS ED LOVED HIS SON MORE THAN LIFE ITSELF (that an outside person can know from interviews & film/TV footage down the years).......1/ He Named his Guitar after Wolf ....2/In guitar player interviews Ed would always endearingly segway from talking about guitar components to proudly talking about his SON ('If I exceed at the speed of sound HE exceeds at the speed of LIGHT') .....3/ When Ed would take Wolf to parent teachers meetings as a boy he would find the teachers shocked to find that he (ED) was the ONLY parent present among all the nannies.....lol.....4/ Because in 2004 during his solo onstage Ed would invite Wolf to walk out onstage playing for himself & when Wolf had finished playing 316 Ed would say to the audience into the microphone - 'THE FUTURE' while holding back the tears.....5/ Because there was no generation gap between Father and Son. Dad wasn't a distant aloof authoritarian type Father , he was Wolf's BEST PAL ......6/ Because ED avoided pressuring Wolf to do music like Ed's mother had pressured him....He let Wolf find it for himself and protected Wolf from the mistakes Ed's Mother had made on him....7/ He let Wolf modify the music with his own contributions to it (Listen to Wolf drop Eds intro technique for Romeo Delight an octave while Ed improvised harmonics over it,,,also the fantastic bassline groove Wolf plays on Beats Workin') .....8/ Because after Ed and Valerie separated Ed remained good pals with Valerie because he put the well being of his son before ex marriage politics.....9/Well, just watch the old footage of Ed, Val & Wolf on the Arseno show (Although poor Wolf is probably embarrassed by it..lol)......& 10/ Well, just watch all the hundreds of bootleg DVD footage of our two compatriots on stage jamming & going head to head in solos, going round each other in circles, jumping off drum risers together,,, talking (shouting..lol) in each others ears during the volume and laughing together.......During these moments the audience weren't looking at DAVE believe me.....lol

  41. Cynthia Rose

    This song Distance is so beautiful. Eddie Van Halen is looking down from heaven so proud of his son just as he was in real life in Van Halen. RIP Eddie! VAN HALEN ROCKS FOREVER !

  42. Michael Harrigan

  46. Matthew Fisher

    This is for Wolfgang. Just like you I recently lost my dad and I miss him every single day. Thank you for writing this amazing heart felt song. The 1st time I listened to your tribute to your dad I broke down. Our dad's were our best friends and your song evoked so many memories. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  47. Tami Abrahamson

  48. Beverly Watkins

    I absolutely LOVE this!! Thank you Wolf for sharing your dad with us!!

  49. John Crafton

    Dude, nice song. Sad that its release had to coincide with recent events. It sure would've been lovely for your dad to have been around for it. Both the song and the video reinforce my desire to be more heavily involved in the lives of my children. Thank you for that.

  50. Adam Cooke

    You're talented. You definitely had a blessing in your family.

    Thanks for sharing your life with us Wolfie. It’s heartwarming to see your dad was something more important than a superhuman guitar player.

    You are an incredible talent. Thank goodness you were born in the right family. The voicemail at the end makes me cry every time.

  68. JT 5150

    Right at 3:25, that little bend at the end of the solo; it’s subtle but you can hear the “Eddie” in the way Wolf does that bend

  69. Mar Sauce

    While millions mourn the musical genius that was Eddie Van Halen, this poor kid is just missing his father. :(

    Hi Wolfgang .. Im Clark Ive found a friend of your grandfathers here in BC where i live She played accordion with Jan Van Halen for a decade She is 90 years old and her son is from Holland too hes 66 he always has pride his momma played with Edward and Alex's father and he told me when Edward passed on to the stratosphere and i was .. well humbled . He also plays guitar and wrote me a song when my dearest friend passed in January and we spoke of his mother . Today i cried when i heard your song Its beautiful as are you family's music indeed . I kept me up till 4 am on piano and i wanted to reach out to find a way to get you or your uncle to speak with this lady . Shes 90 but seems sharp and i hope you see this message she has memories that only she can tell you . I wrote WISHING when my buddy died and that keeps him alive with me too . Bless you kind man . Lastly your father inspired my to put the drums and piano and guitar into one single instrument and magically i did . I want you onl;y to see what i made Actually On Dec 5th 2007 you and your wonderous father inspired me to make the thing I even have a 12 minute film of you both that i on;ly wanted you to see first . Let me know and please take calm careful ki9ndness in thgis life You are a brilliant musician Peace WVH and love I saw edward in concert in 1982 my father took me your film made his memory come so close i had tears i adore this song Thank you .
