Wolfgang Van Halen has revealed the best advice he ever got from his dad. In a recent interview, Wolfgang said his late father Eddie once told him “If you ever make a mistake, do it twice so that everyone thinks you meant to do it”. Wolfgang says there’s an example in the Van Halen classic “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” – Eddie hits a note twice by accident and “it doesn’t even seem like a mistake”.
Wolfgang is getting ready to release his first solo album, Mammoth WHV, next month.
