    Default New Wolfgang interview with KLOS's Matt Pinfield

    Former VAN HALEN bassist and current MAMMOTH WVH frontman Wolfgang Van Halen joined Matt Pinfield for this week's episode of 95.5 KLOS's "New & Approved" show.

    Wolfgang chatted with Matt about the excitement of being nominated for a Grammy Award for MAMMOTH WVH's song "Distance" before discussing how he started playing music as a child.

    While his father Eddie Van Halen helped, he also let Wolfgang find his own journey as he explored drums, guitar, bass, and keyboards. Wolfgang also talked about MAMMOTH WVH's self-titled debut album and he went into detail about the album's single "Epiphany".

    He went on to chat about his greatest influences, including Prince, Dave Grohl, BLINK-182 and AC/DC, and what inspired him to play every instrument on the LP.

    Regarding what his reaction was like to the Grammy nomination, Wolfgang said: "That was a pretty crazy morning. Gosh, it's just something I never could have expected from this in any way at all.

    I write and do all this music just kind of 'cause it's what makes me happy, and to see that it resonated enough with people and to have it be nominated for a Grammy is just kind of unbelievable."





    As previously reported, MAMMOTH WVH and DIRTY HONEY recently postponed the launch of their "Young Guns" co-headlining tour to February 20 from the previously announced January 18.

    Both of these "young guns" spent their summer on high-profile U.S. tours DIRTY HONEY with THE BLACK CROWES and MAMMOTH WVH with GUNS N' ROSES. With only two live gigs under their collective belt, MAMMOTH WVH's tour initiation was a baptism by fire, opening for the iconic GUNS N' ROSES in stadiums. At the end of the tour, in Hollywood, Florida, GUNS N' ROSES brought Wolfgang Van Halen back onstage to join them performing "Paradise City".

    MAMMOTH WVH's touring lineup features Wolfgang on guitar and lead vocals, Frank Sidoris (SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS) on guitar, Jon Jourdan on guitar and vocals, Garrett Whitlock (TREMONTI) on drums, and Ronnie Ficarro on bass.

    Didn't listen yet, but I just read that he talks about Epiphany. Over time, that has become my 2nd favorite song of his after Mammoth. I don't listen to the album much any more, but I put those two songs on some playlists.

    Nothing new in this interview. Someone could just ask him "did you ever hear your dad play some really cool new riffs at 5150, during the last 10 years?" Or "do you remember your dad going through a "cello phase" and did he write on the cello?" I'd talk about Mammoth WVH but ad one really cool EVH question in the interview.

    It's hard not to be.

    Prince is the most talented musician in pop in the last fifty years...easy. It's not even close.
    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!

    I didn't listen to it but I assume he mentioned that Eddie like Prince.

    I just read about when they met....and I was right. Can't believe I was able to recall that with everything going on in my life
