“As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life. I never intended ‘Distance’ to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release. This is for him. I love and miss you, Pop.” - WVH
Proceeds from “Distance” will be donated to Pop’s favorite charity, Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation
I’m so happy
You’ve found a place
That’s better for you
Than this rock we’re living on
I’m so nervous
Don’t know my place
A life without you
I’m not ready to move on
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
I’m so tired
Can’t see your face
My memory of you
Slowly fades when I go on
I’m still cryin’
Don’t want this place
A world without you
I don’t think I’ll ever move on
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is I will be with you
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
No matter what the distance is you’ll be okay
I’m so happy
You’ve found a place

  • Thank you so much for showing your dad. He was an amazing man more than words but I bet he was an outstanding father who could never be forgotten. This video makes you want to hug people more and tell them that you love them even more because it's so special how you collaborated all the perfect words. That will be okay. Your dad's so damn proud of you son.

  • I think grief is just the period of time it takes for your brain to accept that someone’s gone. Cause everything in your body, your mind, your entire being just keeps bringing you back to the moment they’re still alive. It takes a long time for your heart to let go of that. Its the hardest thing of all, letting go of someone you love~ NB

  • I can’t wait to see your future ahead of you Wolfie! When I was brought into this world 17 years ago, my father wanted me to be musically inclined as well and the first song I ever heard out of the hospital for the first time was Eruption and since that moment, Van Halen was a name I would never forget. It’s a shame I never got to see VH but you carry the musical spirit. We get and are happy you aren’t doing what you dad did and forging your own path. I will make sure to fully support you in your future, when I first heard this single driving to school on Howard Stern, I cried I was so happy to hear your debut and it was beautiful. Just know Wolfie, we all believe in you and support you

I saw Van Halen 7 times in the start of their band. Watching your dad play was amazing. His fingers flew on the guitar strings! I really love this song! No matter what you do in this life, I know your dad is watching over you!

  • This song is amazing and video is so touching. Its a beautiful tribute to one of the greatest guitarists of all time. More importantly it shows how much he loved WVH and loved being a father. This song will resonate with people who have lost their own father and will continue to do so for generations to come. This young man has talent and I look forward to his work as the years roll by. Eddie will live on through his music, but there certainly will never be anyone like him ever again.
