Wolfgang Van Halen Speaks out in Defense of Billie Eilish .
Billie Eilish was recently met with widespread criticism after she revealed on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ that she did not know who the band Van Halen was.
Van Halen, an American hard rock band founded in 1972, last performed together live in 2015, when Eilish was 13 years old.
Following the news, Wolfgang Van Halen, bassist and the son of the band’s founder, Eddie Van Halen, was quick to defend Eilish.
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, Wolfgang Van Halen, via Twitter.
Wolfgang then promoted Eilish alongside Van Halen, saying both were “cool” and that people should “check them [both] out.”.
