    WOLFGANG VAN HALEN Sprains Ankle, Performs With Protective Boot: Photos, Video

    October 21, 2021

    Wolfgang Van Halen will sport a protective boot on his left foot for the next four to six weeks after spraining his ankle.

    The 30-year-old son of legendary VAN HALEN guitarist Eddie Van Halen took a bad step getting off his tour bus early Wednesday and injured the foot prior to performing with his band MAMMOTH WVH in Huntsville, Alabama later that night.

    Early in the day, Wolfgang took to his Twitter to share a photo of his foot in a boot and he wrote in an accompanying message:

    "Ate shit walking off the bus this morning and sprained the FUCK outta my ankle. Now I gotta rock this boot for 4-6 weeks.

    "Looks like this boot's gonna get some show experience.

    "We'll see ya tonight, Huntsville."


    He updated fans on his condition Wednesday afternoon.

    "Ok soundcheck was ...interesting," he wrote. "Looks like I'm gonna be Dave Grohl-ing it tonight, folks. Be patient with me haha."





    MAMMOTH WVH has headlining shows booked through Saturday.

    Earlier in the month, MAMMOTH WVH guitarist Frank Sidoris and his wife were involved in a serious car accident, leaving the band to perform at its recent shows as a four-piece.

    MAMMOTH WVH spent two months on the road as the opening act for the North American leg of GUNS N' ROSES' "We're F'n Back" tour.

    Wolfgang wrote all the songs and performed all the instrumentation and vocals on MAMMOTH WVH's self-titled debut album, which came out in June.

    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Kudos to him.

    I hate playing sitting down.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
