    Default Van Halen's New Bassist? Eddie's Boy Wonder!

    Posted Nov 2nd 2006 6:05PM by TMZ Staff
    Filed under: Music, Kids
    http://www.tmz.com/

    Van Halen has finally found its new bassist -- and it looks like the rock gods are keeping the band a family affair.

    TMZ is first to confirm that Van Halen has hired 15-year-old Wolfgang Van Halen -- the son of guitarist Eddie Van Halen and estranged wife Valerie Bertinelli, and nephew of drummer Alex Van Halen -- as the new bassist for the band.

    Wolfgang replaces longtime bassist Michael Anthony, who left the band earlier this year. Van Halen spokesperson Janie Liszewski tells TMZ that Wolfgang, known as "Wolfie," has already joined his dad and uncle for rehearsals in the studio. Wolfie played dates with his father during the band's 2004 tour, and the song "316" on 1991's "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge," was named for Wolfie's birth date that same year.

    The band is still without a lead singer, despite rumors that David Lee Roth might rejoin.

    he's a teenage yoko. Granted he doesnt look as asian. Probably a better singer. But still help ruin a great band......Or do I blame Eddie for this one? I will still be there! Instead of banners to throw I will throw G.I. Joes and PS3 video games for him to play with during the tour!

    The band & management have been shopping a tour for the past month or so with Wolfie, David, Eddie and Alex as the new group, but promotors are balking at the asking price of $1 Million a night and the fact that it is not a complete reuion package without Mike. They have been advized to take the Wolfie reuion package overseas (Japan & Europe) to see if it would generate more interest here in the US.

    Now this is a good rumor.....thanks for throwing this on our plates...makes sense to me.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    So similar to what Guns N' Roses did this year with the new band? If they're gonna tour with Wolfie, I REALLY like this idea, just so I know whether or not I wanna go see this...

    So VH still has a short, round bass player with a high voice.
    Just trade in the Jack Daniels bass for a Juice Box bass.

    The tour would be in the summer for the most part I would think. Plus I would assume that Edward could afford a tutor.
