    “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

      heart touching, that last phone call

    2. duckmann

      Your dad was awesome brother

    3. duckmann

      Awesome just freaking awesome thank you for sharing this God bless him God bless his family and thank you God for giving this man to us and letting us enjoy him for the time we had

    4. Noah Graham

      man… I was bawling

    5. Bookaholic23

      This made me think of how much I miss my father who I lost over 20 years ago. But I lost my SO of 25 years ago on 4/20. He had declining health for the past couple of years and then went rapidly downhill, then rallied to where we thought he would make it, to having complications that took his life. I lost my dad at 20, but my kids lost their dad at 18 and 14. Fuck everything. Life sucks.

    6. John Rotten

      What really makes me sad listening to this song is I have zero connection with 2 of my 3 kids. Don't know what I would have done different or how I could have changed anything. Sometimes life really sucks and can be cruel in it's own way.

      1. xKramer

        Sorry man. If you feel you did all you could for your kids, then that’s all you can do man. Hopefully one day they will realize how much you are to them. Stay strong brother.

    7. eric luscombe

      Incredible video and song wolf can't imagine how hard it must have been to make it was hard to watch so thanks

    8. Karlene Vickers

      He was clearly loved by his dad his entire life! My dad lived until 70, but I didn't have a relationship with him until the last 10 yrs of his life. I would have rather had a relationship with him the 1st 30 plus years of his life ! It's great when you have no doubt that your parents clearly love you !

    9. Thomas G r o v e s

      Blown Away absolutely awesome

    10. dirtboyz19

      RIP Eddie and condolences to Wolfgang and the Van Halen family ❤️

    11. The Underground Cyber Jungle Cafe' - undergroundcyberjungle.com

      Top notch, GRADE A music, sound and production as I would expect from a VAN HALEN. And The Cradle Rocks........ ROCK ON !! = \//-/=

    12. Samuel Felix

    13. Jennifer McRoy

      Although we weren’t still together, we were best friends. Within a couple weeks of his unexpected passing, my husband introduced my daughters (11&12) to this song. It’s even mor pertinent now. We’ll be playing this song each of the 3 places we scatter his ashes. RIP Shawn McRoy, I’ll take it from here.


      The voicemail at the end did it to me.

    15. Cindy Montgomery

      Thank you so much for allowing us to see this.

      The only way I can reconcile 1k dislikes is that they are dyslexic and clicked the dislike button by mistake.

    18. Alan Seabourne

      Thank you for sharing this video Wolf. Very beautiful, and an honor to be allowed to see these personal glimpses of your family. I fell in love with music because of your father at the age of 12. 46 and still playing.

    19. Jonathan W.

      What a great man.

    20. Annia Squires



      I just can't stop crying 😭💔

    22. Justin Fencsak


    23. Brandon Chavarria

      Every time I watch this video it makes me feel even more bad for wolf

    24. GW Bee

      Beautiful song. Well done my friend

    25. Judy Reed

      I just wish those who are apart could heal their wounds and realize life's not perfect just forgive

    26. Cherry Russell-Traffanstedt

      So beautiful!! 😭

    27. Court K

      You are going to change people Wolf, we need you.

    28. Elijah Bryant

      I just looked up his dad after learning about him in my music class saw this song and started crying because they had such a close bond and it reminds me of me and my dad

    29. Glenn Garner

      I like this song this song is good and cool they play this on 97.1 the eagle rock station Dallas

    30. Guy Worthington

      Wolfgang, I just got word my mom is end of life. Thanks for this song my friend. I just got the news and was on IRvision and this song shows up.

    31. Trooper George

      Love everything about this!!!!

    32. NANCY VELA

      I get goose bumps listening to this song. The love of a parent for their child is evidently a strong bond. Mr. EVH seems his happiest when he was around his son. Wolfie sure did get his dad's music genes. Your father's presence will always be with you. Blessings...

    33. Silver Bullett

      Wondering when I'll be able to watch this without crying. My guess is never.

    34. Brian McCaffrey

      Wolf, i wanted to thank you for this song. My wife passed a year ago today, and you released this not long after. It has had a profound impact on me, and the words couldn't be more perfect. God Bless you and your family. Your Pop is with you, and would be proud! Regards, B-Mac

    35. Christina Torrey

      I lost my my mom in November and this song speaks to me. I cry when listening.

    36. Christinia Sharma

      I just want my children to know I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH THEM, just like I know my parents ARE STILL WIH ME even though they are in a better place......I love them more than they will ever know.....smile

    37. Christinia Sharma

      This is now my song for my children as things are changing in our lives....and now my friend is in coma......I know we will be okay now.

    38. Marie-Odile H.


    39. goodolbronco

      Sure am sorry for your loss man!..what a great song though...my dad is getting up there in age idk how I’m gonna deal with the inevitable...cheers keep up the great work

    40. Kimberly Koch

      Just beautiful 🥲💞

    41. Jamie E

      Can't hold back the tears.

    42. Hey, Internet. Eric here

      My dad died back in January of this year. This was the first song to play on my car's radio as I left the funeral home. If that's not a sign of my dad still being with me then I don't know what is.

    43. Richo3121

      Beautiful tune man. Hope to see you in Australia someday.

    44. Matthew Forte

      You are your fathers son whom will become his own legend like Bruce/Brandon Lee (i honestly did not know at first that they were related lol.) If there's anything that i can think to say that might help. When the storms you have to face come at you. Shout as you did in this great song "do your worst, for i will do mine" then the fates will know you as we know you WOLFGANG VAN HALEN the man.

    45. Pumpkin Puna

      "My memory of you seems to fade as I go on "! { that verse right here ... wow ...sets the stage, in my opinion, for Van Halen fans as well} I'm 54 years old. My introduction to rock music started approximately when's I was around 13 years old when my cousin began buying VINYL records...he had Van Halen, Ozzy, The Cars, Rush etc...I would sit down on the floor and listen to the music. So the meaning of that verse at the start of this comment is simply memories of the days I would listen to rock music aren't as easy for me to remember. RIP EDDIE VAN HALEN !!!!!

    46. mark Edward

      I cry every time

    47. Ed Marcio Santana

      Linda canção Estou muito emocionado.... Aprendi a amar o Rock com os acordes magistrais de seu pai e bateria de seu tio... Muito obrigado por continuar a linda história que seu pai iníciou....

    48. Scott Schreiner

      A great song for the covid era. No matter the distance, we need to be there for each other.

    49. Loren C. Jr.

      This is the best brother!❤️

    50. Maxel Grabeel

      When I First saw this Music Video I went to my almost 2 year old son. I hugged Him, told I loved him and made a personal video with him just him and i having some fun together it was a true bonding moment and I can't thank Wolfgang enough for making this song. I am and I know your Dad is extremely proud of you!! I am a drummer btw. This Song is Beautiful and from the heart, Great job man!

    51. Jules taylor

      Such a great Playlist and I'm 60 !!

    52. J.H. Paree

      Watching Eddie interact with Wolf reminds me so much of how my dad interacted with me when I was younger. You can tell that Eddie loved him and was fully committed to being there for him since day one. That’s how my dad was, and still is to this day.

    53. Julie Zecca

      I also lost my Dad in 2020 😌 This Turned out Beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

    61. rocafella142

      Holy fuck. I had no idea this song was Van Halen's kid. I've always heard it on the radio and thought this song was amazing. I finally decided to Google the song 2 min ago and saw the artist name. Changes this song completely for me. I thought it was about a woman.

    62. pjotr katzanduro

    81. cricket34

      I wonder how come they only had one child.

    82. Jennifer DuVall

      That was beautiful!!!

    83. ShreddFly

      Although your father was one of the greatest musicians and creators to ever walk this planet. You are truly a musical force of your own! Love everything I've heard so far. Keep it up the world needs music like this! God bless you! Peace!!!

    84. İpek Sağol

      Why am I crying right now? Bec this is so beautiful. Especially their relationship... At the end of the video my heart is broken..

    85. James Mc

      Well tonight I held up until the end. Didn't cry throughout the whole video...but I can't ever get past the last part, the voicemail....and I finally realized this is a good thing.

    86. kleadbro

      Honestly, the 1st time I heard this song I thought it was Lifehouse! Not knowing the backdrop I figured this song was talking about a loved one or a person longing for a connection that was once had! I told my 9yr old boy (while listening too 93X Rocks in MN) that they are singing about God and no matter how far away you get, the distance doesn’t matter! I told my boy, “No matter what happens, Love people and love God.” Wolfgang, I am truly sorry for the loss of your father. I thank you for the real and rawness of your music and lyrics! The challenges we face make us stronger and sometimes connect us to people/things we never imagined was possible. I’m so glad your heart said save your talent until you’re ready to explode and touch even more people!

    87. Gene Walk

      Brought tears to my eyes ! Very beautiful ! Keep these killer songs going Wolfgang !

    88. Scott Tessier

      Wow love this !!!

    89. James Harris

      I hope I never meet the 930 some people that chose to hit dislike. If you don't like it move on and say nothing. Heartless Douche bags.

    90. Mark T


    91. goodolbronco

      So good!!!! Like father like son

    92. common sense

      I am so glad to see Eddie was a good Dad! He was also a legend. I hope Wolfgang always remembers the part of his Dad that was just DAD to him. The rest of us see a guitar legend! But sometimes see a great soul.......

    93. michael lourie

      WOW....Such Beautiful Love. Thanks for sharing your soul for you Dad.

    94. Bruce Maxwell

      Amazing. I love everything about this. So inspiring for me.

    95. Leon Mohan

      Just lost my Dad, my best friend to fucking C, and I cry everytime I here this. Thank you Wolfie, you put into song just how I feel.

    96. Rebecca Hillhouse

      After losing my Dad April 26th 2020, I was feeling sad and a little lost. Through it all my best friend Traci was there helping to dry my tears. And then on Friday November 20th 2020, my best friend Traci died in my arms from liver cancer at the age of 52. And that lost sad feeling came back. This song has helped through it....

    97. Andy Sabino

      Amazing song. We all miss Eddie.

    98. Christina Jones

      Bringing this old woman to tears

    99. aegielle

      i lost both my biological and step father, so this song hits different, thank you man. thank you. this is beautiful.

    100. Cassandra Nicole

      Beautiful. Makes me remember my own dad. He died when I was 7 back in 98. Feeling every word and so wish he was here.
