Van Halen Bassist Disses One Direction After Chance Meeting in Hotel Lobby
by: Amy Sciarretto

Uh oh. It’s pop vs. rock, as One Direction were dissed by Van Halen bassist (and son of legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen) Wolfgang Van Halen via Twitter. The musician tweeted about his chance meeting with the 1D boys in the lobby of a British hotel, saying he was insulted by the band and referred to them as d–heads. Gasp! Zayn Malik? Niall Horan? D–heads? No way!

Van Halen did not share key or concrete details about the exchange or about what exactly went down with 1D, only saying that he was insulted by them in the lobby in the morning and that they were not nice. He also said that they must go by the name One Direction since their hair is shaped and styled that way.

Actually, Harry Styles’ hair goes in all sorts of directions, thanks to his mop of curls. And with Liam Payne sporting a shaved head, it’s probably still in the peach fuzz stage, so that doesn’t point 1D either, Wolfie!

We’re left to wonder what 1D said to Van Halen and his crew or entourage to elicit his Twitter comments.

Let’s hope this doesn’t escalate into a full scale war between the bassist and the band, or even worse, between the bassist and Directioners, who will no doubt valiantly swoop in to digitally support their heroes.

Below are WVH’s tweets about his experience with 1D. It’s safe to say he is not a Directioner.
“Fun fact: Was just insulted by that s—y boy band #OneDirection in the lobby of our hotel this morning! Greetings Birmingham!” he wrote. He then went on a longer rant, adding, “No joke. That ACTUALLY happened. That group of kids in #OneDirection were d–heads to @iierockii @gwdrums and I.”

Lastly, Wolfgang dissed their cute coifs. Not cool, bro.

They must call themselves that because all of their hair points in #OneDirection

Is anyone going to know who One Direction is in ten years? I doubt it.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Maybe they will be Wolfie’s The Clash. I can see him now on stage, right before his bass solo, swiggin down some O”doules sayin’ “This ain’t One Direction baby”

I wonder what they said to insult Wolf and the guys. I suppose we’ll never find out, but I’m curious if it was about music or fashion or album sales or what.

One Direction are a manufactured band from Simon Cowell courtesy of X Factor UK .
Wolfgang was in the hotel because he is in Europe with Tremonti and they were playing the NIA in Birmingham backing Slash. I spoke to him in Newcastle on the 15th after the show but did not know about this issue at that point or I would have asked him about it.

If it wasn’t for my 12 year old daughter, I wouldn’t have one clue as to who the hell these talentless douchebags are.
