On Monday Van Halen Returned Thanks To Wolfgang was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Valerie Bertinelli may no longer be married to Eddie Van Halen, but she's still keeping her eyes on the band's current tour because their 20-year old son, Wolfgang, is currently handling bass duties on the trip.
This week, Bertinelli spoke with WRIF Detroit about the "A Different Kind Of Truth" tour, providing some insight for fans. When asked about the backlash over Wolfgang being on board instead of former VH bassist Michael Anthony, Valerie said, "I loved Mike, too. I thought he was a really nice guy. Still do. But the only way this tour is happening is because Eddie gets to play with his son Wolfie. Otherwise this tour wouldn't be going on. It really wouldn't."
"This brings joy to Ed," continued Bertinelli. "That's what he wants to do now — just have fun playing. As great as Mike is, this wouldn't be happening if Mike was still in the band. There would be no tour, there would be no album, there would be no nothing." - more on this story
