Eddie died of throat cancer on October 6, 2020. Following the news of his death, tributes poured in from members of AC/DC, KISS, Museum and Pearl Jam.
In his post on social media, Wolfgang said that he was “without being here trying to do his best”. [Eddie], but it’s really fucking hard”.
“You fought so hard for so long, but still you were taken,” wrote Wolfgang, “that’s so unfair.”
He continued: “I’m not well. I don’t think I’ll ever be well. I wish I could show you so many things I wish I could share with you. I wish I could laugh with you again. I wish I could see you again.” I miss you so much, I feel hurt.
“I love you with all my heart, Pop. Look at me.”

Over the past year, Wolfgang has released his self-titled debut album with his band Mammoth WVH and toured with Guns N’ Roses. At one point, Wolfgang joined the band on stage during a performance of ‘Paradise City’.
“Wolfgang Van Halen, do you know how cool it is to say that? We’re talking legacy,” frontman Axl Rose said at the concert.
