“I know that pop would probably just laugh at it and say, ‘Ehh, who’s an s – t? It was all about the music anyway. The rest didn’t matter,” the guitarist wrote, adding, “I would like to do Get the chance to speak with The Recording Academy about not only my father’s legacy, but the legacy of the rock genre as well. Thank you very much. “
After a long battle with throat cancer, Eddie Van Halen passed away on October 6, 2020.
The late star’s son confirmed the heartbreaking news on social media, sharing: “I can’t believe I have to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning. “
“He was the best father I could ever ask for,” continued Wolfgang. “Every moment I shared with him on and off stage was a gift. My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss. I love you so much, Pop.”
