Wolfgang Van Halen is shutting down rumors that the band has any intention of replacing his late father – not even with himself.
Recently, word had been circulating the internet that Van Halen would continue on with a lineup that included Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Alex Van Halen, and Wolfgang himself moving from bass to lead guitar.
On Sunday, Wolfgang tweeted “This is just a s****y lie attempting to capitalize on these awful times”, adding that the rumor is “not only hurting the fans, but hurting me and my family”.
