Wolfgang Van Halen, the son of the late Eddie Van Halen, has slammed band rumors circulating about him allegedly replacing his late father as the lead guitarist of Van Halen. These claims were first made on a Wolfgang Van Halen fan page, and made their way over to Twitter. Not only did it mention Wolfgang taking over as lead guitarist, but that the lineup would include former vocalist Sammy Hagar, former bass guitarist Michael Anthony, and Eddie's brother Alex Van Halen on percussion. "It has been mentioned that Eddie Van Halen told his son and brother, I give you my blessing.....," the fan page says at the time. Wolfgang dismissed the rumors on social media and urged fans to "please stop" making up false rumors with no truth behind them.
