Wolfgang Van Halen makes late night debut with “Distance” on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’


Wolfgang Van Halen made his debut late night TV appearance on Thursday, performing on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The 29-year-old son of the late Eddie Van Halen played his first solo single, “Distance,” along with his band Mammoth WVH.

Home videos of Wolfgang with his dad played on a giant screen behind them, along with clips of him performing with Van Halen.

“Distance,” released in November, is a tribute to his father, who died a month earlier at age 65. The song is currently in the top three on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.

Mammoth WVH’s self-titled debut album is due out in June.
