Wolfgang Van Halen Defends Billie Eilish for Admitting She’s Never Heard of Van Halen

Wolfgang Van Halen Defends Billie Eilish for Admitting She’s Never Heard of Van HalenBillie Eilish felt the internet’s scorn this week after admitting on<i> Jimmy Kimmel Live</i> that she has no idea who Van Halen is. But on Monday, none other than Wolfgang Van Halen stood up for the 17-year-old on Twitter. “If you haven’t heard of @billieeilish, go check her out. She’s cool. If you haven’t heard of @VanHalen, go check them out. They’re cool too,” the 28-year-old son of Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli tweeted. “Music is supposed to bring us together, not divide us. Listen to what you want and don’t shame others for not knowing what you like.” Eilish’s confession had come about after Kimmel noted that he was 17 in 1984, then started naming some of the biggest musical acts from that year. Kimmel also defended Eilish for never hearing of the ’80s rock band, telling her, “If you asked me questions about 1943, I probably wouldn’t know the answers either.”https://ultimateclassicrock.com/billie-eilish-van-halen/
