Wolfie Talks EVH Tribute

Wolfgang Van Halen says the proposed Van Halen Tribute Tour “never even got off the ground.”


In a new interview, Van Halen said, “What I can say is that there was an attempt at doing something. But, you know, I don’t like to speak negatively about people, but there are some people that make it very difficult to do anything when it comes to Van Halen. After being in Van Halen for a long time, I really have strived to have an environment where there is no walking on eggshells and there is no personality that you have to deal with. It’s just guys having fun making music and just having a good time. But, you know, from my time in Van Halen, there was always some stuff that gets in the way from just making music and having a good time. And, I think, that’s what happened.”


Van Halen also explained that the tribute was not going to be a tour but rather a one-off concert and said, “I would really just like to do something for Pop.”
