Wolfgang Van Halen Defends Pop Star Billy Eilish Over Her Jimmy Kimmel Appearance
Pop Star Billy Eilish recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s awful late night show. During the interview Kimmel asked Eilish if she could name a Van Halen to which she responded “who?” The video clip has since gone viral, and one of the band’s very own, Wolfgang Van Halen, has defended her.
“I’m gonna start crying,” Kimmel responded. Watch the video below.

“If you haven’t heard of Billie Eilish, go check her out. She’s cool. If you haven’t heard of Van Halen, go check them out. They’re cool too,” Van Halen wrote. “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 was just for some stupid reason named 2019’s Favorite Alternative Rock Artist at the American Music Awards. She also recently worn a shirtt with Type O Negative, Rob Zombie and Cradle of Filth’s logos on it. I doubt she listens to those bands or even knows who they are.
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.
