Wolfgang Van Halen had a pretty cool dad, but his story about how Eddie Van Halen introduced him to an AC/DC classic is priceless. Wolfgang says that, while in second grade, Eddie and his mother Valerie Bertinelli pulled him out of school for a week-long vacation in a Winnebago.

“I remember we stopped somewhere and my mom went to the bathroom, and Dad was like, ‘Wolf, come check this out.’ And he showed me the song ‘Big Balls’ by AC/DC … and that song made me laugh so hard.”Noting that he and his dad bonded over the song, Wolfgang says, “We loved that. So that might be one of my earliest memories of a favorite song.” You can listen to the full interview here.
