Wolfgang Van Halen Finishes Solo Album
Wolfgang Van Halen's long-awaited solo album is completed, according to its producer.
Michael "Elvis" Baskette recently tweeted that the last mix for the album had been approved. He thanked Wolfgang for allowed him to work on the project.
"There are no words to describe the sense of excitement and accomplishment of finishing the last mix on this amazing record," Baskette wrote. "It's so awesome and I'm super proud of it on all levels. It's been a long time coming but it will be very worth the wait!"
Wolfgang, the son of Eddie Van Halen and actress Valerie Bertinelli, recorded all the instruments and vocals on the album.
The project began around 2015 on the heels of a Van Halen tour. Wolfgang has shared periodic updates from the studio with his Instagram followers.
On Tuesday, Wolfgang declared: "Mixing complete!"
Wolfgang's dad praised his son's music early on, writing that the early demos blew him away. He described the music as a combination of "AC/DC meets Van Halen meets aggressive pop," adding that Wolfgang created a guitar-heavy album that is unlike anything he's heard before.
"It's so powerful that I'm jealous," Eddie said.
