While he may be the newest member, he also has the most fascinating story; being brought on to play bass for the TREMONTI tour at a moment's notice! VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen is sitting down with FRET12 on the road to give you the full story.
Wolfgang goes into his story of how he got his start in music, starting first with drums, then moving on to guitar, then to bass.
Ever wondered what sort of gear Wolfgang is using on the road? He describes his Fender rig that he uses for Tremonti, as well as his set up for when he is on the road with Van Halen.
Every great musician always has a very interesting set of influences and bands that got them into music in the first place. Wolfgang got his start listening to bands like AC/DC, then got his interest in drums and harmonies with blink182. He then got into Tool and other heavier music as his musical background grew.
Then get ready for the full story of how Wolfgang was brought into the fold, told by the man himself!
Already being in the area with the guys in SEVENDUST, the timing could not have been better!
