    “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

      This video just made my grown ass cry 😢

    25. Samantha McAlmont

      I am so sad about your dad. My dad died from the cure of having lung cancer. My dad(pop) was my biggest fan. Sometimes my only fan. 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!

    26. Luis Martinez

      You are a bad ass!

    27. Raymond van der Wurff

      This song made me, at this stressful 'work' morning, instantly realize what life is all about. Thank you Wolfgang.

    28. Ilikecoffeeandmusic

      Wow. This was so beautiful. Such a great song, you did good Wolfie. I’m sure your dad is smiling down, beaming with pride.

    30. Chris Morrison

    35. bayebaa

      How could anyone dislike this??? I don't get it.

    36. Brian Humek

      I had tears in my eyes seconds after this video began..... now, just watched the end and I'm crying. That was so touching. Thinking of my own son and how much I love him.

    37. Deer Creek Audio

      oh.... people tell me my music gets a "thumbs down" all the time. Part of being a musician. No reason for that around here in this song. Some people will never understand and are the ones to avoid in your life.

    38. Deer Creek Audio

      This is sooooo heart felt. Love it. Great stuff Wolfie. Keep it going.

    39. Pat Smith

      Thank you! .....

    40. Glenda Sabo

      Awww, lots of love right there

    41. buckman1965

      i lost my dad when he was 48 i feel you sorry for your loss

    42. David F.

      Thanks for the brief glimpse into another side of our musical hero. fyi, it takes a lot to share something so personal with millions of strangers. Especially in today's cut throat culture. Anyone who 'thumbs down''s this poignant and brave post has no soul.

    43. Jayson Foy


    44. huntrrr

      the dislikes are from people that were too teary eyed and accidentally pressed dislike instead of like button

      1. Hawkeye Mods

        or just general dislikes about the idea of him being gone

    45. Patrick Lambert


      1. Son Of Life


    46. Dennis Applegate

      WoW, this is surprisingly good.

    54. Nancy Mcdowell

      Precious. ❤️

    55. Dez 1

      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.

    56. ericagape67

      WOW ,what an EXCELLENT job of capturing the BEAUTY of a positive father son relationship.

    57. Steve Burk

      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! irvision.info/home/e3uZnJxomLWkrM4/fy-lm-h-y.html 🌧😭 I played all instruments and sang all vocals like you did on yours.

    58. Ghetto Cornetto

      Jesus man, this tore me up. I'm gonna go call my dad.

    59. Shelly Jackson

      So beautiful❤

    60. Frank Jude

      Great song and great (but heartbreaking) video. I can't wait for the whole album.

    61. nanascott100

      Eddie Van Halen was one hell of a good father!!!! 🙏🙏❤️🐼

    62. Christina Vaccaro

      Aw! What a beautiful voice Wolfie has ! So nice !

    63. Swapster .com

      Great tribute to his dad for sure. He is very strong on all the instruments and vocals.

    64. Jason Rhodes

    66. Mare Tomaski

      I just realized this is Wolf’s song....for his dad....it’s perfect in every way, now the lyrics really hit me.

    67. Michael Costello

      thanks alot for making me cry for 5 minutes straight

    68. Corey Gray

      Just found this. Thought the tears were over but no way now. We love you Eddie!

    69. Mare Tomaski

      So precious Eddie seems like he was an incredible dad...Wolfie is very lucky

    70. John Stitt

      As parents we fall in love with our children the moment we are introduced to them. Love is what is what I see here. ✌️❤️✌️

    71. Scott Rogers

      Being a guitar player and raising a son, this one hits home. Thank you WVH and RIP EVH 🙏🙌🏻

    72. Taylor T. Carlson

      Hard to watch this one without a tear in your eye! Damn good tribute. Not sure if this is coincidental or not, but one of the dates shown in the video is November 24, 1991. The day we lost two other titans of the rock world - Freddie Mercury and Eric Carr.

    73. Char S


    74. Matthew Carroll

      I lost my dad 8 years ago and you said what I haven't been able to put in to words. Thank you.

    75. Jean Hansen

      This is amazing! Van Halen is what it is in the rock phenomena history. This video and song is just a great family story!

    76. Jordan Rhodes

      Beautiful song!

    77. Edward M. Lee

      Thank You Wolfgang For this. I needed it ! Best wishes to You & Your Loved ones ! Best Regards Eddie

    78. Jake Lakota

      My first thought in 1980 when I heard that striped guitar was HOLY SHIT. Your dad was the sole reason I got into playing the guitar. Your dad was the sole reason I got out of playing the guitar. Keep up the tradition, you are starting off amazing.

    79. Shred64

      Thanks for sharing. Pop is no doubt so proud and smiling down. Hang tough and shine on.

    80. kat James

      It's hard to watch this without crying A beautiful tribute video

    81. Clearblue Metal

    83. Robert Horton

      Awesome Wolfgang!

    84. Carlos Mendoza

      I love this song! And video! It made me think about my 6 yr old daughter when she'll be going out of state for college. Very powerful song, so thank you. I'm sorry for your loss. Everyone's hurting from it, but I know you're hurting the most. Just keep writing and putting out great songs that come from the heart. I know your dad is proud. Peace Brother ☮️

    85. Chris Morrison

      Power, beauty, melody, and fantastic lyrics. Wish I could hang out with you Wolfy....big hugs of love from Portland. Great song...truly.

    86. Daphne G


    87. Christine Patterson

      A parents love is forever a child's appreciation for a great parent is priceless this is a great work of love art and pain loss.

    88. puppycat58

      How beautiful 😍....I am crying..so touching....R.I.P. Eddie....

    89. Jennifer J.

      Wow almost 3 million views Congrats Wolfgang 🥳🎊🎉

    90. Liminal

      Lost my dad unexpectedly to back surgery in Pittsburgh on May 23rd 2015 at the age of 60. I'm 31 years old now but still feel the same 5 years later. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I'm thankful I found this video it means a lot to me.... I know how you feel.

    91. Van Piekeren Muziek

      Wow! This is great material. What a fantastic dad !

    92. Cathrine Bouford

      Beautifully written and produced and that video added power to that song! You're in my prayers Wolfgang!

    93. Latka Gravas

      Wolfie should form a band with Paris Jackson.....another one who owes 100% of her success to her last name. Sorry, these kids are mediocre at best. Zero originality. Wolfie claims he wants to distance himself from his dad's music for originality sake...Bullshit. If it would be for originality, he wouldnt sound like a Nickelback cover band. If you dont agree, you're just a Wolfie fanboy.

    94. Robert Cavender Jr.


    95. Michael Tirio

      Well done- Tears over here

    96. Stephanie

      Absolutely heartbreaking, will only be watching it this once.

    97. Jamie West

      Beautifully Done 🌺 What a great way to memorialize your dad 💕
