Eddie Van Halen’s son Wolfgang spoke to Entertainment Tonight saying that is possible a tribute show honoring his father.
Here’s what Wolfgang said:
“No way. That’ll never happen. I think a message to the Van Halen fans [would be that] some things just really suck. I don’t have a dad anymore and I have to figure out how to process that and deal with it.
”And, that’s the process that Van Halen fans need to go through and realize that you can’t have the band anymore without Eddie Van Halen. The music will live on forever, but you can’t have [the band] without him. Impossible.
“My dad would probably be really pissed off at me if I [tried to take his place,]. He’d probably be, like, ‘What are you doing playing my stuff? Go do your stuff.’ He would’ve been really upset, like, ‘You have all this music you’re sitting on. Why wouldn’t you go forward with that?'”
