Wolfgang was previously the bassist for a band called Tremonti. Valerie talked about this time and how she still didn’t worry about her son as he toured with a rock band. She said, “The guys who he was working with were so cool, so laid back. I didn’t see any drugs or alcohol. They all went to get smoothies. Of course, ’cause maybe I was there, but I know he’s made good choices.”
From an early age, Wolfgang went to his father’s band rehearsals. From there he started playing drums, then guitar and keyboards. Eventually, he fell in love with the bass. Now, he gets to play in his father’s famous band, Van Halen.
