    Van Halen's New Bassist? Eddie's Boy Wonder!
    Posted Nov 2nd 2006 6:05PM by TMZ Staff
    Filed under: Music, Kids

    Van Halen has finally found its new bassist -- and it looks like the rock gods are keeping the band a family affair.

    TMZ is first to confirm that Van Halen has hired 15-year-old Wolfgang Van Halen -- the son of guitarist Eddie Van Halen and estranged wife Valerie Bertinelli, and nephew of drummer Alex Van Halen -- as the new bassist for the band.

    Wolfgang replaces longtime bassist Michael Anthony, who left the band earlier this year. Eddie Van Halen's spokesperson Janie Liszewski tells TMZ that Wolfgang, known as "Wolfie," has already joined his dad and uncle for rehearsals in the studio for a 2007 summer tour. Wolfie played dates with his father during the band's 2004 tour, and the song "316" on 1991's "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge," was named for Wolfie's birth date that same year.

    The band is still without a lead singer, despite rumors that David Lee Roth might rejoin.

    Ugh... First off - Van Halen was only good with Sammy. The fact that he is gone and over what, some stupid soundtrack to Twister made me not like the Van Halen boys. I doubt bringing in sonnyboy will help. Bring back Sammy and then I'll listen again.

    Awwww, I have a picture that I took of Valerie & Eddie with Wolfie in his stroller when he was only a few months old, at a wedding reception. Time flies, doesn't it?

    R.I.P. Van Halen.
    How hard is it to get a singer?
    Since I heard Eddie is a porn addict and is doing music for pornos, I'm done with waiting for them to reunite. He's a wacko.
    Why did Michael leave the band, lol?

    Can we interest you in Leann Rimes? She has a nice little cadre of fans you'd probably enjoy.~ Pecan Pie

    I think Eddie and his bro have hug egos and people get sick of their shit.
