WOLFGANG VAN HALEN ‘Killed It’ Playing Classic VAN HALEN Songs At TAYLOR HAWKINS Tribute Concert

Written by on September 5, 2022

Wolfgang Van Halen‘s mother says that he “killed it” during his performance with Dave Grohl at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert.

Valerie Bertinelli took to Twitter on Saturday (September 3) and subtweeted a video showing Wolfgang rocking out onstage earlier in the day with GrohlTHE DARKNESS singer Justin Hawkins and acclaimed session drummer Josh Freese at Wembley Stadium in London. Bertinelli wrote, “WOLFIE KILLED IT. So proud of you @WolfVanHalen.”

The four musicians played two VAN HALEN classics as a tribute to Taylor at the late FOO FIGHTERS drummer’s memorial concert in London.

Prior to launching into the first of the two tracks, “On Fire”Grohl told the audience: “It should come as no surprise that Taylor was a huge VAN HALEN fan. Remember those tights? We are lucky enough tonight to have with us a real Van Halen. Would you please welcome Mr. Wolfgang Van Halen to the stage right now.”

FOO FIGHTERS frequently covered VAN HALEN in concert, including during their 2015 tour when “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” was a staple of the Grohl-fronted band’s setlist.
Earlier this summer, Wolfgang spoke to Rolling Stone magazine about why he is adamant about not playing VAN HALEN covers when touring with his own band MAMMOTH WVH.

“People are like, ‘Oh, don’t mention VAN HALEN. He hates VAN HALEN.’ It’s, like, ‘It’s my fucking name. Why would I hate it? It’s my dad. I love my dad. I was in the fucking band.’ I don’t hate it at all.”
