Later, Wolfgang Van Halen has spoken out through his official Twitter account and stated that Steven Wilson’s words bum him out hard.

Recently, Steven Wilson updated his official Twitter account and responded to Wolfgang Van Halen’s tweets. According to Steven Wilson, his statement was given in honest humility. He also sent his condolences and finished his letter.

Steven Wilson said: “Dear @WolfVanHalen, apologies, no disrespect was meant to your father, an extraordinary musician. I personally never owned any @VanHalen records and didn’t ever get into the style of playing, but he was clearly an incredible innovator.

“So when asked about his passing I couldn’t honestly say I was affected deeply by it, at least not in the way that my heroes Bowie or Prince’s passing had affected me.

“This statement was given in honest humility. Forgive me for any offence unintentionally given, and I offer my deepest condolences. SW.”
