Wolfgang Van Halen Tweets about Thoughtless Fans
Kinda fucked up how many “I’m sorry your dad died, please send me an autograph and a pick” letters I’ve gotten over the last 3 months. Some even coming directly to my home.
What an unbelievable breach of privacy, and wow what horrible timing. Please don’t do this.

I would be the worst celebrity. If someone comes to my house with that nonsense, I would have no problem shooting them.

Just bring some pie and he’ll let you in.

Sounds like mail being sent to his home address rather than people showing on his doorstep. Sucks but that is the price of fame and fortune and I'm sorry but with so many of us in a dire situation financially and mentally from covid I'm not losing sleep because someone is getting mail to his California mansion asking for an autograph. I get that this kid doesn't know any other life but as someone who lost a family member in November and is dealing with reduced income, isolation and debt from emergency dental treatment all I have to say is suck it up kid and count your blessings.

R6, all of that is true, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have the right to ask people to stop being complete assholes about his father's death.

Stopping asking. I'll be selling picks and other commemorative items in my new Eddie Van Halen Souvenirs online shop. I'll get it set up once you assholes quit ringing my fucking bell and calling me.

The only reason anyone knows his name is because of his parents. He's mildly/marginally talented and every other word out of his mouth is about his dad or mom
He's under the mistaken impression that people are interested in him for him. They aren't
He's going down a really rough road if he keeps this up. It will all end in tears

Why the nastiness? Has this young man has not been a famewhore in the past?

I remember when Eddie & Valerie were a couple (however briefly); they were like the Headbanger Brangelina in their day. That their son grew up to be such a wanker is kind of sad.

He got Val’s Italian genes.

I don’t know what that fan tweeted that made him so mad, but everyone is weighing in in the predictable ways. “Everyone processes grief in their own way…” Boy am I tired of that line.

Hire someone to take care of the mail and move on with your life, Wolfgang.

R13, they were married for 26 years.

Many people were fans of guitar god Eddie long before Wolfgang was ever born. Since Wolfgang posts about his dad a lot, people probably assume that it's OK to communicate with him about this dad. If you have a public twitter account, you are pretty much inviting the public to communicate with you. If my dad died, I think I would kind of like to have tons of people reach out to me to let me know that my dad's lifework made their lives better.
But it would be annoying to have lots of people ask for free shit.

Poor guy. People really are trash...
Although I’d point out a lot of the Van Halen fans I know are Trumpers...

Oh Christ must Trump come in to every conversation?

I guess he's pissed off because the paychecks are gonna be harder to come by now.

R22, he's probably set for life. Hopefully Eddie had a will that provided separately for both his wife and Wolfgang.

Sounds frustrated then that his music career won't go anywhere

He sounds annoying and narcissistic. However, people are scum so I will give him that. The kid needs to get off of Twitter.

Wolfgang is very musically talented. However, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to live up to the legend of Eddie. He will always be compared to his dad.
|by Anonymous||reply 26||Last Thursday at 7:09 AM|
He can't be surprised. They're fans of the product and how it makes them feel and the good times it provides - not the actual person, because they don't know the actual person.

Really, they were married for 26 years? I'll be damned! I kind of remember it as: they were the hot couple (bad boy/America's sweetheart-type), had a kid and very quickly Eddie's antics got old & then were the two people in paps shots looking mad at each other (though apparently didn't divorce him). Plus, Eddie's partying got the best of him & he just became gross

I wish my name were Wolf. He's a lucky bastard. I am not a fan of the "gang" tho. Just Wolf.

Trust me, Wolfie, enjoy it while you can. With Daddy dead? You'll soon be in the dust bin of celebrity offspring. (And our dads were ten times more famous than yours.)

I remember Eddie and Valerie dating when she was a teenager on ONE DAY AT A TIME. They were together a long time.
This is an interesting interview Valerie did. I thought it was all his fault for their marriage failing, but she admits she was far from perfect.

Eddie and Val looked eerily alike, like siblings.

Sometimes the lookalike thing means a good match.
