Wolf Van Halen Reflects on What His Famous Father Taught Him

In a recent interview with Louder Sound, Wolf Van Halen spoke about what his famous father, Eddie Van Halen, taught him through the years. “It was my father that showed me the way,” Wolf shared. “He taught e a straight-up AC/DC, Highway to Hell-style beat. And I took it from there.”

Wolf Van Halen also considers himself more of a drummer before anything else because that’s where he is the most comfortable. When asked how many instruments he has played over the years, the musician stated, “Drums, guitar, bass, and I dabbled on keys. I’ve also worked a lot on my singing. If you consider that an instrument.”

Wolf Van Halen also admitted that his father wasn’t always the best teacher. “I would ask him to play something, but he would just proceed to be Eddie Van Halen. He would look at me and say, ‘Do that.’ To which I would laugh and reply sarcastically, ‘Sure thing. No problem.’”

When asked about his appearance in his father’s final album, A Different Kind of Truth, Wolf said he was only a part of the album as a way to support his father. “He was newly sober and because of that, [he] was dealing with some performance anxiety. So I was very happy to be there for him.”

Wolf Shares Details About the Group Mammoth WVH

In regards to releasing his album under the handle of Mammoth WVH, Wolf went on to add he wanted the group to be viewed as a band rather than a solo project. “Growing up, I always liked the name of Mammoth and I vowed to use it later in life. For those that don’t know, it’s what Val Halen were called before becoming Van Halen. My dad was Mammoth’s singer. So that also makes me feel like a kindred spirit.”
