The Day Wolfgang Van Halen Learned His Dad Was Famous

Wolfgang Van Halen says he was “six or seven” years old the day he learned his father Eddie was a famous rock guitarist. “They were doing all the CD remasters” for the six David Lee Roth-era Van Halen albums, he tells UCR. “I found a box of all of them, and I saw my name on it and a picture of my dad. I said, ‘Dad, what’s this?’ and he said, ‘Oh, yeah, uh … this is what I do.’ And he kind of introduced me to everything.”

Eddie Van Halen is Irreplaceable

“I think a message to the Van Halen fans [would be that] some things just really suck. I don’t have a dad anymore and I have to figure out how to process that and deal with it. And, that’s the process that Van Halen fans need to go through and realise that you can’t have the band anymore without Eddie Van Halen. The music will live on forever, but you can’t have [the band] without him. Impossible.” On why his dad wouldn’t want him to do it, he added to ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “My dad would probably be rea

Ric Ocasek Sounds Like a Jerk

Ric Ocasek’s oldest son, Chris, has branded his late father a “narcissist” who was “never present.”On the anniversary of his dad’s death on Sept. 15, Chris Otcasek (who uses the original spelling of the family name) went public with his feelings about his father when he captioned an Instagram photo of himself with Ric and brother Adam, “You don’t exist. We didn’t either.”

But still, Chris claimed that “my father, in essence, died the day I was born. He was never present, he was never there. Even when he was, he was never there and that’s the abandonment that I’m referring to.”

Garrett Gilbert’s Father Gale Gilbert Was A Quarterback, Too

Garrett Gilbert’s father, Gale Gilbert, was a quarterback too. It’s another case of father and son quarterbacks.

From Wikipedia:

Gale Reed Gilbert is a former American football quarterback who played eight seasons in the NFL for the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, and the San Diego Chargers. Gilbert is the only player in NFL history to be on five consecutive Super Bowl teams, none of which won.

Wikipedia

Bit of a specious claim to fame there, but hey, it’s better than nothing.

He was also a part of The Play:

He played for Cal.

Garrett, of course, is currently the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys because everyone else is injured. Maybe he’ll win one someday. I’m sure his dad will be proud either way. Sports dads are proud of their kids even if they stink, and Gilbert just had a decent debut for (cough) “America’s team.” Following in dad’s footsteps is a nice thing. Playing in the NFL when you weren’t expecting to do so is even better.
