Wolfgang Van Halen, the son of the Van Halen legend Eddie Van Halen, has recently appeared on his official social media channel to mention one of the most curious issues of his father and the voicemail was heard at the end of his tribute song, ‘Distance.’
As reported on October 6th, it was sadly reported by Wolfgang Van Halen that Eddie Van Halen has lost his battle against cancer and has passed away at the age of 65. His wife Valerie, drummer Alex, and Wolfgang were alongside him on his last a few minutes.
In the middle of November, Wolfgang, who expresses since his father’s passing that he missed him so much, has dropped a song titled ‘Distance’ and paid his tribute to him once again. At the end of the music, there was a voicemail told by Eddie Van Halen.
Recently, on social media, Wolfgang opened up about that voicemail and cleared his fans’ minds about the issue. In the voicemail, Eddie said, “I’m so happy to have you as my son – so proud of you. I love you so much. Call me if you get a chance. I just want to hear your voice. I love you. Bye.”
About the voicemail, Wolfgang said, “I’ve gotten tons of questions about the voicemail at the end of the ‘Distance’ video,” he said. “‘What was the context?’, ‘A special occasion?’ Nope. He was just that amazing and loving of a father that he felt the need to leave messages like that every time he called me. He was the best.”

I’ve gotten tons of questions about the voicemail at the end of the Distance video.
“What was the context?”
“A special occasion?”
Nope. He was just that amazing and loving of a father that he felt the need to leave messages like that every time he called me. He was the best.
