“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 can’t wait to see your future ahead of you Wolfie! When I was brought into this world 17 years ago, my father wanted me to be musically inclined as well and the first song I ever heard out of the hospital for the first time was Eruption and since that moment, Van Halen was a name I would never forget. It’s a shame I never got to see VH but you carry the musical spirit. We get and are happy you aren’t doing what you dad did and forging your own path. I will make sure to fully support you in your future, when I first heard this single driving to school on Howard Stern, I cried I was so happy to hear your debut and it was beautiful. Just know Wolfie, we all believe in you and support you

  • I am so very sorry for the loss of your dad. This song is so powerful and the voice mail at the end was very fitting. You can hear & see that he loved you very much! I saw Van Halen 7 times in the start of their band. Watching your dad play was amazing. His fingers flew on the guitar strings! I really love this song! No matter what you do in this life, I know your dad is watching over you!

  • a unique video. The reality is that a monster of the electric guitar left us and it will take a long time until a new hendrix like van halen appears. Steve Vai is just a clone of Eddie.

  • This song is amazing and video is so touching. Its a beautiful tribute to one of the greatest guitarists of all time. More importantly it shows how much he loved WVH and loved being a father. This song will resonate with people who have lost their own father and will continue to do so for generations to come. This young man has talent and I look forward to his work as the years roll by. Eddie will live on through his music, but there certainly will never be anyone like him ever again.

  • Man thats an awesome video, Eddie looks like an amazing dad. Man I wish my dad had paid half the attention Eddie gave Wolfgang, Im sad Esdie is gone, but I believe with the help and good music of Wolfgang we can continue to embrace Eddie's legacy and awesome music. Awesome video Wolf..!

  • You could have all the accolades life can give you, but hearing your dad say he's proud of you is the very best one to have, I'm lucky enough to know that feeling and also the hurt of the loss of a great father, that hurt never goes away but you learn to cope with it by remembering all the great memories you made together, EVH was a great showman loved by millions, but mostly he was a great father to a family

  • Lost my dad to a heart attack in 2009. I was 20 when he passed away. Lost my mom to complications from stage 4 breast cancer in 2018. I was 29 when she passed away. This song hits home for me. But it also brings back all the good memories I have of both of them & even tho they divorced & drove me nuts at times I still miss both of them.

  • There is a film maker named Mark Laila who has a channel called Soft White Underbelly where he interviews addicts and prostitutes and pimps and other folks on Skid row . The FIRST question he asks is if they had both parents growing up and 9 out of10 didn’t have a Dad much less a tender touching Dad like Wolf shares in this video. WVH had a Dad who wasn’t just present but who also passed on a remarkable talent through which his son will always be able to close the distance. Thanks for this.
