Wolfgang Van Halen - Mammoth WVH - Distance (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

“As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life. I never intended ‘Distance’ to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release. This is for him. I love and miss you, Pop.” - WVH
Proceeds from “Distance” will be donated to Pop’s favorite charity, Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation

I’m so happy
You’ve found a place
That’s better for you
Than this rock we’re living on
I’m so nervous
Don’t know my place
A life without you
I’m not ready to move on
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
I’m so tired
Can’t see your face
My memory of you
Slowly fades when I go on
I’m still cryin’
Don’t want this place
A world without you
I don’t think I’ll ever move on
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
I’m so happy
You’ve found a place

    Just from listening to this one song Wolfgang Van Halen is a very talented young man. In addition to all instruments he is playing, he really can sing! He was doing the lead and back up vocals on this song and he has that other gear in his voice where he can project and sing loud in tune and very passionately. Wolf you wrote a really good song. I hope that working on your own career brings some comfort to you and those who love you. Stay focused and I hope you will spend time Mike, Sammy, Dave and Gary they all shared life with you and your dad and as fellow musicians they will be your biggest fans.

    beautiful tribute Wolf ... his father was a super father, he always made a point of showing how much love and happiness he had in being with his family. I love your father since I was 12 years old (today I am 46) and I know the size of your pain, this week will be a year since I lost my dad, to this damn cancer ... mine was not a super star, but I had immense love, just like yours. Now I carry 2 pains, caused by this damn disease, my father and yours ... your music is beautiful ... :( I’m still cryin’ Don’t want this place A world without you

    Other than this beautiful video ....10 REASONS WHY THE WORLD KNOWS ED LOVED HIS SON MORE THAN LIFE ITSELF (that an outside person can know from interviews & film/TV footage down the years).......1/ He Named his Guitar after Wolf ....2/In guitar player interviews Ed would always endearingly segway from talking about guitar components to proudly talking about his SON ('If I exceed at the speed of sound HE exceeds at the speed of LIGHT') .....3/ When Ed would take Wolf to parent teachers meetings as a boy he would find the teachers shocked to find that he (ED) was the ONLY parent present among all the nannies.....lol.....4/ Because in 2004 during his solo onstage Ed would invite Wolf to walk out onstage playing for himself & when Wolf had finished playing 316 Ed would say to the audience into the microphone - 'THE FUTURE' while holding back the tears.....5/ Because there was no generation gap between Father and Son. Dad wasn't a distant aloof authoritarian type Father , he was Wolf's BEST PAL ......6/ Because ED avoided pressuring Wolf to do music like Ed's mother had pressured him....He let Wolf find it for himself and protected Wolf from the mistakes Ed's Mother had made on him....7/ He let Wolf modify the music with his own contributions to it (Listen to Wolf drop Eds intro technique for Romeo Delight an octave while Ed improvised harmonics over it,,,also the fantastic bassline groove Wolf plays on Beats Workin') .....8/ Because after Ed and Valerie separated Ed remained good pals with Valerie because he put the well being of his son before ex marriage politics.....9/Well, just watch the old footage of Ed, Val & Wolf on the Arseno show (Although poor Wolf is probably embarrassed by it..lol)......& 10/ Well, just watch all the hundreds of bootleg DVD footage of our two compatriots on stage jamming & going head to head in solos, going round each other in circles, jumping off drum risers together,,, talking (shouting..lol) in each others ears during the volume and laughing together.......During these moments the audience weren't looking at DAVE believe me.....lol

Lastly your father inspired my to put the drums and piano and guitar into one single instrument and magically i did . I want you onl;y to see what i made Actually On Dec 5th 2007 you and your wonderous father inspired me to make the thing I even have a 12 minute film of you both that i on;ly wanted you to see first .

As a fellow human being, I do respect his artistic flavor of music composer & esthetics. Wolf, I am wishing you all the very best in your future endeavors. Always keep your life grounded and create music you actually will enjoy sharing with your audience. Your Dad truly loved you very much & those who know you & knew your Dad Love you as humans first.

It’s damn tough for you right now, but it’ll get easier, I promise. Putting out videos like this certainly helps the healing process, and remembering and thinking about him everyday achieves the same. Cry, scream, get angry, just never forget; lock him tight in your heart. Much love to you Wolfie. Oh, and the songs superb! Good luck with the album, too. Simon.

    Wow. Just wow. This would be dynamic and powerful even if what happened hadn't happened. WVH, you are a superior talent in your own right and were clearly raised in an atmosphere that encouraged that to flourish. Not a single thing about this track reminds me in any way of the Van Halen I have loved since I was an itty bitty child in the early 80s when I first heard them - and that's its brilliance. You're your own man and your own musician with your own identity... And I will own any piece of music you release the day it drops.

    I Loved your father more than any words could ever say! He was my friend and mentor all through the ninties and he was my world and my idol!! He was many things to many people but I just can't believe that he's gone. I modeled my life after him - he drank Sharps' beer, I drank Sharps' beer. He smoked cowboy killers (Marlboro Red) I smoked cowboy killers. He later smoked Camel lights, I smoked Camel lights. He wore 3 X T-shirts I wore 3 X T - shirts. He build and painted his own guitars and modified them I did the same! He was my hero to me since my parents got divorced when I was three years old. I remember when I first heard Eruption for the first time ever. I was like " Holy shit! What the hell is that? Two guitars, a synthesizer, or what?!" I was hooked. And that was when your Dad first made it on the scene. I too am old enough to be your father but I always admired him for what he could do musically and what his words meant to me every time I heard them. I wanted to make a new neck for the 5150 Strat ever since I heard that it got broken. I make guitars and custom guitar parts. However I built an exact replica of it as a tribute before all these EVH clone guitars were being painted by everyone and their brother and sold on evilbay and even before Fender started making them. I guess that this will never happen now that your pop's dead. I am so devastated by the news I could only imagine what you're feeling now. It still doesn't seem real. I can't get it through my head that he's gone. Although you sound nothing like your Dad you are AWESOME!! I am glad that you are following in your Dads' footsteps just doing it your way. He has so much to be proud of!! God bless you, Wolfie! Rock on, brother!
