It’s been three years since Eddie Van Halen’s passing and he would have been 68 this year if he were to be alive today. In Wolf’s recent tweet, on the occasion of his late father’s birthday, he wished his father a happy birthday and also revealed his wishes which involved Eddie.
Eddie’s birthday is on January 26, and Wolfgang tweeted, “Happy 68th Birthday, Pop, Wish I could give you a big hug and tell it to you in person. I love and miss you more than you could ever know.”

He was not the only one to post about it on social media. Eddie Van Halen’s wife also wrote on her Instagram, “Happy Heavenly Birthday, my Peep. And some smiles never leave you the same.”
Eddie’s ex-wife, Valerie Bertinelli, also didn’t forget Eddie’s birthday. She shared two images of herself, Eddie, and Wolfgang together, looking content. However, Valerie only posted the images with a white heart emoji and no birthday greeting.
