Late rock star Eddie Van Halen’s only child Wolf Van Halen remembered him on the first anniversary of his death, noting he fought a good fight, but he still passed on.
Wolf Van Halen penned a moving tribute for his late father Eddie Van Halen on Instagram on Wednesday, October 6. He captioned his post:
“One year. You fought so hard for so long, but you were still taken away. It’s just so unfair.”
The 30-year-old admitted he is not okay and that he does not think he ever will be. “There’s so much I wish I could show you. So many things I wish I could share with you,” Wolf wrote.
He said he still wishes to laugh with his dad and hug him, stating he misses him a lot and that it even hurts. He shared he tries to do his best without Eddie but it is hard for him.
The musician concluded by saying he loves his Pop with all his heart and that he should watch over him. Along with the sad post, Wolf shared a throwback photo of him and Eddie.
The image displayed the father and son having a special moment sharing a laugh while both holding guitars, with Wolf appearing to be playing something for his father.
The anniversary of Eddie comes a day after his son celebrated the anniversary of his band performing in front of a sold-out crowd at the Hollywood Bowl in 2015.
Earlier this week, Wolf wrote on social media that it was the best show they ever did and was the last show he ever played with his dad, adding he would never forget it.
The California native has previously been open about his father's death and the grieving process. He even shared throwback pictures and posts dedicated to Eddie.
In August, Wolf posted a photo of him and wrote his death still feels surreal, saying he could not believe he is no longer alive anymore.
In June, his band Mammoth WVH released its self-titled debut album and recently wrapped up a tour opening for Guns ‘n Roses, Rolling Stone reports.
