During a recent radio interview, Wolfgang Van Halen has opened up about the Sammy Hagar era of Van Halen not receiving the respect it deserves. 

Wolfgang explained, "That era [of Van Halen] doesn't get any respect, I don't think. And there's a lot of amazing songs and just obviously brilliant guitar playing on a lot of that – on all of that stuff – and I think people don't give it a chance 'cause they fall into that just exhausting 'this singer is better, this singer is better' crap, when it's, like, just give it a chance. There's some really good stuff in there."  

Separately, when asked about his involvement in reissuing vinyls, Wolfgang said, "[Alex Van Halen] is, obviously, he's the head honcho when it comes to making the decisions. Obviously, I default to him on anything that he thinks is the right thing to do. But when it comes to decision-making or at least just kind of helping out, yeah, I am that sort of what would have been my dad's vote for stuff there with Al. So Al and I are kind of that team."

Wolfgang is currently touring with his band, Mammoth WVH. They are set to open for Metallica and Pantera later this year.
