(Classic Rock) Wolfgang Van Halen may be only 21, but he calls a lot of the shots in his dad's band. A rare interview with the bassist reveals how he's responsible for a wide range of decisions including rehearsal sessions and live set lists.
Wolfgang started working with father Eddie in 2005, a year before he became the official replacement for original Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony.
"I kind of come up with the set lists. When we've got a song that we haven't done, it's like, we should probably run through this before the show and figure out the count of it. Because Dad, for some reason, counts in odds. He'll land on three instead of four. I have to look at him sometimes.," he tells Esquire. more on this story
