Wolfgang Van Halen - Mammoth WVH - Distance (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

“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

    Your tribute brought tears to my eyes! I lost my father this year not long after you lost yours. Although the world sees your dad as one of the greatest innovators of all time... to you he was simply your Dad. None of us know the sheer depth of your relationship, but your video captures your incredible father son relationship and love that transcends music. You have his talent! It's clear that your Dad loved you even more than his guitar. I also have a couple of sons and cherished the time we spent with music. Your Dad was beyond influential to all of us in the guitar world... myself included. I think of him whenever I tap harmonics on the guitar. Peace

    Does anyone realize that Wolfgang Played every Instrument on this song. Been sitting on the shelf for a couple of years. Finally found the appropriate time to pull it out and touch it up. Vocals were done at Wolfgangs studio, and the instrumentals were put together at his Fathers 5150 studio. Wonderful introduction song and tribute from Wolfgang Van Halen. Album coming out in 2021.

    Hi, I am from Jakarta Indonesia, 56 yo. Have been so influenced by Van Halen, I remembered put VH poster and logo at my to head bed in 1983. This song is so touching, Wolfgang voice is incredible and can reach high tone. I guess this loss will be opportunity to Wolfgang to get out of the VH shadow and to become himself. You are so talented! Keep playing and singing....Cheers from Indonesia
