Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang has a mantra that has helped him cope with his legendary father's death. His upcoming album contains his special mantra.
Eddie Van Halen's death left a void in the heart of his fans, but for his son Wolfgang, the death of his legendary dad changed his life, and he has been struggling to get over it.
But, lately, Wolfgang has been able to draw strength from a mantra to help him cope with Eddie's death. Instead of mourning, he has decided to continue the legacy.

Wolfgang is preparing to take the music world by storm just like his father did and releasing his debut album "Mammoth WVH," which comes out later this year.
The album is not just to entertain his fans but also more for Wolfgang; it contains a mantra that helps him cope with his late father's death.
The track "Distance" features the lyrics, "No matter what the distance is, I will be with you." For the 29-year-old singer, the lyric is almost a mantra; it reminds him of the strong relationship he had with his dad.
Wolfgang revealed that each time he thinks of his legendary father, he uses his special mantra. The 29-year-old has often spoken of the deep bond he shared with his father, and his upcoming album reflects that.
He died at 65, surrounded by his family and love from his millions of fans.
The video for "Distance" gives fans a glimpse into the relationship between the late music star and his son. The video reportedly contains some homemade clips featuring the late icon and also some voicemails Eddie left behind for his son.
Wolfgang believes that the pain of losing his dad will never go away, but the best he can do is to keep his memory alive by making good music.
The 29-year-old marked what would have been his father's 66th birthday on social media, where he tweeted about how much he missed his dad and wished they could celebrate together.
In an interview, Wolfgang opened up on his musical experience with his father and what touring with the icon felt like. He reportedly admitted that his dad ruled the musical part of his life, but it is his mom who gets the credit for the man that he is.
The music legend died after last year from his battle with cancer. He was said to have battled cancer for well over a decade, but in the last few days of his life, he appeared to be losing the battle.
Doctors discovered that his lung cancer had spread to his brain, giving him no chance of survival. He died at 65, surrounded by his family and love from his millions of fans.
