WOLFGANG VAN HALEN Slams Fans Questioning WVH Initials: “Last I Checked It Was My F**cking Name”

Wolfgang Van Halen has once again shut down fans constantly questioning his lack of "Panama".

MAMMOTH WVH frontman Wolfgang Van Halen hasn’t been a stranger to going head to head with disgruntled VAN HALEN fans online.

Wolfgang previously shut down fans earlier this year over the request to include some of his father’s songs in his live performances.  When one fan in particular suggested Wolfgang would be honoring his late father, Eddie Van Halen, if he just gave the fans what they wanted, Wolf replied: “I honour my dad by existing and doing what I do every day. I’m not fuckin’ playing Panama for you guys.”

With the musician becoming “fucking exhausted” by the fan backlash, the latest online confrontation began when one fan tweeted “Why after all your resistance against Van Halen fans did you decide to add WVH to your band name? Honest question.”

Wolfgang responded: “Last I checked it was my fuckin’ name.”

Wolfgang then got into more detail about his frustrations being under constant scrutiny, writing: “It’s this dumb shit where people pull things out of context and boil shit down in dumb ways so they can be mad at me that pisses me off.”

Despite all this, the young Van Halen maintains that he holds no grudges to those who love the iconic rock band. He writes: “I’ve never had resistance against VH fans. All I’ve ever said is: 1) You’ll never hear VH at a Mammoth show. 2) I’ll never ‘replace’ my father in VH and continue the band. But y’all just keep finding new reasons to hate me daily. It’s fucking exhausting.”

Later on in the day, Wolfgang extinguished the idea made by a fan who suggested he host a concert with former VAN HALEN singers David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar as a way to bring “closure” to fans. “I have no idea why you people think this is my problem to fix,” he replied. “If I have to come to terms with not having a dad, these people can come to terms with not seeing a band live again.”
