It's been a busy 15 months for Wolf Van Halen. He released his long-awaited (and outstanding) debut album last June, went on tour with Guns N' Roses, and he's fresh off a killer performance at the recent Taylor Hawkins tribute concert. The talented musician recently tweeted that he's back in the studio to start working on his second record before he goes on tour with Alter Bridge in late 2022 and into 2023. We can't wait to hear what he does next, but what are we supposed to do to pass the time until then? One option is to order... Read more →

We have all of the respect in the world for Wolf Van Halen. The son of the late guitar icon Eddie Van Halen and actress Valerie Bertinelli has basically been in the public eye since the day he was born. His dad named a guitar instrumental ("316") after Wolf's birthday. He occasionally played "316" with Eddie during the troubled 2004 reunion tour with Sammy Hagar. Wolf eventually replaced longtime Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony for several tours. It was a move that angered a lot of the band's fans. However, we saw the young musician play shows in every tour... Read more →

Give Sammy Hagar credit: The 74-year-old singer (who turns 75 in October) is still out out there busting his ass. He doesn't need the money, especially given his successful tequila and rum ventures. The guy lives for singing and performing live in his sixth decade in the music business, and he still looks and sounds great. The faces around him change every so often, but the modern Jimmy Buffett is still delivering some old-fashioned rock. Hagar and his current band, The Circle (featuring former Van Halen bandmate Michael Anthony, Vic Johnson, and Jason Bonham) have a new album coming out... Read more →

Wolf Van Halen announced his arrival as a solo artist last year when he finally released the long-awaited Mammoth WVH debut album. The son of the iconic Eddie Van Halen quickly established over the course of 14 songs that he has his own voice and sound that's distinctive from his father and uncle Alex. Wolf wrote and sang every song, as well as played every instrument on the record, showing that musical talent runs throughout the family. It's no fluke that Mammoth WVH was nominated for a "Best Rock Song" Grammy for "Distance," Wolf's emotional tribute to his late father.... Read more →

Wolf Van Halen has had a terrific run in 2021. His long-awaited debut album finally came out last June and earned rave reviews for its catchy hard rock sound that was different from his legendary father's approach. Wolf and the band then hit the road this summer, opening for Guns N' Roses in shows across the country, along with a handful of solo concerts. That tour recently finished, and then there was the announcement that Mammoth WVH will open for the Scorpions in Europe next spring. All in all, not a bad stretch. Not bad at all. We were wondering... Read more →

It's been just over a year since Eddie Van Halen died, but it's still hard to believe that the guitar icon is no longer with us. The man reinvented his instrument, both with his playing approach and technical innovations., setting the stage for legions of imitators to try to copy him. He lit up the rock music landscape for almost 50 years, from infamous backyard parties in high school, to Los Angeles clubs, and then arenas around the world. He was a creative force who went through some mind-blowing highs and dark lows during the course of his life. However,... Read more →

Wolf Van Halen finally launched his solo music career this year, and he's off to a terrific start. The son of the late great Eddie Van Halen (and nephew of drummer Alex Van Halen) released the first Mammoth WVH album in June. The record makes it clear in no uncertain terms that while Wolf Van Halen comes from a famous music family, he's got his own vision. The talented 30-year-old wrote every song, played every instrument, and sang all of the vocals. Turns out, he's got a great set of pipes with an impressive vocal range that we previously only...

It's all coming together for Wolf Van Halen and his Mammoth WVH solo project. The talented musician released one of the best rock albums in years a few weeks ago, and now he and his new bandmates are rehearsing as they get ready to ht the road with the legendary Guns N' Roses. Mammoth WVH just announced their tour dates from July 31 through October 3. As you might expect, the Guns N' Roses tour will be a busy one this summer and fall, but the most interesting thing is that Mammoth WVH will also be headlining a handful of... Read more →

Wolfgang Van Halen faces one hell of a daunting challenge as he sets out to make his own mark on the music industry. The son of guitar icon Eddie Van Halen, and nephew of drummer Alex Van Halen, is ready to hit the road with the first album from his solo band, Mammoth WVH. (out now) The record was finished almost three years ago, but it was shelved while Wolfgang looked after his father, who died after battling cancer in 2020. The younger Van Halen apparently thinks now is the time to unleash it on the public. Friends, the music... Read more →

We're heading into the final stretch of waiting for Mammoth WVH's debut album to be released on June 11, and now Wolf Van Halen has given the world the title track, "Mammoth" with a new lyric video. It's another win for the talented musician, and our immediate thought is that this should be the opening song for every Mammoth WVH set. Close your eyes, and it's easy to picture each member walking out on stage as the music begins. The guitars and drums grab your attention in the first 30 seconds and don't let go, which is just what a... Read more →
