Wolfgang Van Halen defends Billie Eilish

In an appearance last month, Billie Eilish revealed to Jimmy Kimmel that she didn’t know of Van Halen, replying when asked to name anyone in the band, “Who? No, who is that?”

The late-night host joked, “I’m gonna start crying,” which seemed to be the collective response on the internet.

Coming to the singer’s defense on Monday was VH bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, telling his Twitter fans to check her out, noting, “She’s cool.”

He then added a message towards the haters, writing, “Music is supposed to bring us together, not divide us. Listen to what you want and don’t shame others for not knowing what you like.”
