Wolfgang Van Halen Says David Lee Roth ‘Doesn’t Like’ Van Halen’s Final Album ‘A Different Kind Of Truth’

WOLFGANG VAN HALEN Says DAVID LEE ROTH ‘Doesn’t Like’ VAN HALEN’s Final Album ‘A Different Kind Of Truth’
October 28, 2023

During an appearance on yesterday’s (Friday, October 27) episode of SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk”, Wolfgang Van Halen, who became VAN HALEN’s bassist in 2006 at the age of 15, was asked if he knows why 2012′s “A Different Kind Of Truth”, the sole VAN HALEN studio album he played on, is no longer available on any of the streaming music services. He responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “Yes. The contract ran out on putting it up on streaming services. So we’ve been working on getting it back, but there are some people involved who do not like that record and are not making it easy to get it back up.” Asked if these “people” that are preventing it from going back on the streaming services “were involved in the record,” Wolfgang replied: “Yeah.” When host Eddie Trunk asked, “Might that person commonly be known by three initials?”, apparently referring to VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth, Wolfgang hesitated for a second before replying: “Probably. I mean, yeah, you can put it together. I hate to say it, because people will think I’m making stuff up, but it’s, like, man, I’d love to have the record back up there, but he doesn’t like it and he’s not working with us to get it back up there. So I hope people who like it have a physical version of it. [Laughs]”

Eddie Trunk then asked Wolfgang, who currently fronts his own band called MAMMOTH WVH, if he has a relationship with David and if he has “any idea why things are so difficult” when it comes to the singer signing off on any VAN HALEN-related projects. Wolfgang replied: “No, I don’t. I think that’s why I’m having such a wonderful time with MAMMOTH. I think throughout my time in VAN HALEN, you learn things that you wanna do and you wanna apply, and then you also learn things that you don’t wanna apply. And I think that’s why I’ve been so excited to do MAMMOTH and to have something from its inception be something pure where you can talk about things and there’s not really any big challenges other than weathering the storm together instead of the storm being dealing with each other. You know what I’m saying?”
