Wolfgang Van Halen scores South Park present for Christmas

Wolfgang Van Halen scored a South Park present for Christmas.

The bassist received a lithograph of his own South Park character, signed by series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

Van Halen were featured in an episode of the Comedy Central show last fall.

The band inspired world peace when they took over the focus of a meeting in Jerusalem between some of the world’s major religions, helping unite them with a performance of their 1978 classic, “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love”, and the “1984” smash, “Hot For Teacher.”

Van Halen wrapped up their “A Different Kind Of Truth” tour in July.

A few months ago, frontman David Lee Roth revealed that the group are in the early stages of working on a new album.

"I was up at Edward (Van Halen)'s house, maybe three days ago - just before I came here to the city - and we're starting to put music together,” Roth told Ozzy’s Boneyard host Jim Florentine on SiriusXM. “Not to give away exactly what the package will be, it's gonna be about 18 months, I think.”
