Wolfgang Van Halen - Mammoth WVH - Distance (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

“As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life. I never intended ‘Distance’ to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release. This is for him. I love and miss you, Pop.” - WVH
Proceeds from “Distance” will be donated to Pop’s favorite charity, Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation

I’m so happy
You’ve found a place
That’s better for you
Than this rock we’re living on
I’m so nervous
Don’t know my place
A life without you
I’m not ready to move on
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
I’m so tired
Can’t see your face
My memory of you
Slowly fades when I go on
I’m still cryin’
Don’t want this place
A world without you
I don’t think I’ll ever move on
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
I’m so happy
You’ve found a place

    I think the 3:05 mark reminds me of Collective Soul in a way. Maybe other songs too. Can't quite put a nail on it. Love this song though. Love the video. I feel like Wolf Standing next to my dad. I'm taller and rounder too🤗🤗🤗 rest in peace EVH. You are missed.

    EVH and Van Halen were very special to me as a teen, I was just becoming a teenager when the first VH record came out and they were the biggest band for all us teens back then and seeing them in concert back then was a blast, it was always a party atmosphere at the shows, I sure miss those days and I miss that EVH smile!

    My grandma owned every Van halen album. I started listening to Van halen when i was 10. My grandma let me keep her old vhs tapes of van halen live. I still have them. I always had a crush on eddie. That sweet smile. So much talent i truely believe he was the best gutiarest ever. So much talent. Eddies personality reminds me alot of my dads. It makes me think what would i do without my dad. You can see how proud eddie was so much love. I love this, this is the kind of new music we need.

I miss him everyday, and try to always remember what he taught me. I know he is watching over me, i wish he was here now. Your dad will always be with you too! My only regret is asking the questions, that i now have, and he cant tell me. Keep on playing🎵🎶 You are good! Be your own person, but always keep a piece, of ur family! Rock on!

    This was a wonderful tribute to your dad. Not the guitar god that the world knows him as... but your loving father. He really loves you, not loved but loves. My dad was the same way with me and I was always proud to be with him. Not a lot of fathers say "I love you" to their sons and blows them kisses like your dad did when you were young. Mine did also. And he continued to say it as i grew older. I said it back to him also, no matter who we were around. My friends always said they wished they had relationships like I had with my dad. They considered my dad to be their 2nd father also. When my friends had kids they told me they used the template my dad showed to them. Not the way their own fathers left for them. I'm sure many of your friends felt the same toward your dad. My dad died the same way. You never really move on without them. You have to take them with you in your heart and mind. I now respect your father as your father. Not a guitar god. The guitar god never filled that empty space in him. However you filled that empty space as his son. I respect you Wolfgang for showing us a little window into your heart for your father. You weren't embarrassed and neither was I of my father. Thank you Wolf.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. I've been a fan since 1978! Seen VH live in 78, 79, 80, 84, 2013 in London Ontario with you playing bass. I"m still not over losing my mom. It never gets easy and it shouldn't . I oddly enough just finished a similar song as well for my best friend who died. He was my wolf / dog. mix. Funny how you have the same name " Wolf" This was very hard to sing as well, as I'm sure it was for you. My new song and video for my wolf doggie who passed away last fall 🙁 Please listen and watch for Tobi's sake. He needs your love! kgkey.info/block/q3pno8yYnbKh16A/video.html 🌧😭 I played all instruments and sang all vocals like you did on yours.
