Sharing a monochrome picture of his father, Wolf penned an emotional note. The post was captioned as, I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning. He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift. My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss. I love you so much, Pop.”
He was born in the Netherlands and raised in California. Van Halen started a rock group with his older brother Alex in the early 1970s. He quickly earned a fan base. Eddie was known as “finger-tapping”-playing the guitar with two hands, like a piano.
He is survived by his second wife Janie Liszewski and son, as well as his first wife Bertinelli.
