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

As a fellow human being, I do respect his artistic flavor of music composer & esthetics. Wolf, I am wishing you all the very best in your future endeavors. Always keep your life grounded and create music you actually will enjoy sharing with your audience. Your Dad truly loved you very much & those who know you & knew your Dad Love you as humans first.

It’s damn tough for you right now, but it’ll get easier, I promise. Putting out videos like this certainly helps the healing process, and remembering and thinking about him everyday achieves the same. Cry, scream, get angry, just never forget; lock him tight in your heart. Much love to you Wolfie. Oh, and the songs superb! Good luck with the album, too. Simon.

    Wow. Just wow. This would be dynamic and powerful even if what happened hadn't happened. WVH, you are a superior talent in your own right and were clearly raised in an atmosphere that encouraged that to flourish. Not a single thing about this track reminds me in any way of the Van Halen I have loved since I was an itty bitty child in the early 80s when I first heard them - and that's its brilliance. You're your own man and your own musician with your own identity... And I will own any piece of music you release the day it drops.

    I Loved your father more than any words could ever say! He was my friend and mentor all through the ninties and he was my world and my idol!! He was many things to many people but I just can't believe that he's gone. I modeled my life after him - he drank Sharps' beer, I drank Sharps' beer. He smoked cowboy killers (Marlboro Red) I smoked cowboy killers. He later smoked Camel lights, I smoked Camel lights. He wore 3 X T-shirts I wore 3 X T - shirts. He build and painted his own guitars and modified them I did the same! He was my hero to me since my parents got divorced when I was three years old. I remember when I first heard Eruption for the first time ever. I was like " Holy shit! What the hell is that? Two guitars, a synthesizer, or what?!" I was hooked. And that was when your Dad first made it on the scene. I too am old enough to be your father but I always admired him for what he could do musically and what his words meant to me every time I heard them. I wanted to make a new neck for the 5150 Strat ever since I heard that it got broken. I make guitars and custom guitar parts. However I built an exact replica of it as a tribute before all these EVH clone guitars were being painted by everyone and their brother and sold on evilbay and even before Fender started making them. I guess that this will never happen now that your pop's dead. I am so devastated by the news I could only imagine what you're feeling now. It still doesn't seem real. I can't get it through my head that he's gone. Although you sound nothing like your Dad you are AWESOME!! I am glad that you are following in your Dads' footsteps just doing it your way. He has so much to be proud of!! God bless you, Wolfie! Rock on, brother!

    By far the greatest moments of regret you will have will be the times you had the opportunity to spend with your parents, but chose not too. Take every moment you can to spend with your parents-particularly when they or I’ll or older-because someday you will look up from your busy life and they won’t be there any more. Every moment wasted will be regretted.

    Holy crap I was crying when the piano scene came in. Wolf I can't count how many times I've watched this, it's so f*cking awesome!!!! Dude I watched you on Howard Stern's show, and you're right. You just learn to live with the pain. When I lost my Mother to cancer. I took care of her, and it was pure hell when they said 6 months to live. and sister, 2 brothers to tragedies very young. You do just learn to live with the pain. You'll be fine, you're going to be a band aas on that stage, and your father will be with you.
