Wolfgang Van Halen performs on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Wolfgang Van Halen’s Mammoth WVH performed their 2020 single, “Distance”, on the February 11 episode of ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The appearance marked the late night television debut for the band with a lineup that features Wolfgang on guitars/vocals, guitarists Jon Jourdan and Frank Sidoris, bassist Ronnie Ficarro and drummer Garret Whitlock.

“Thanks for tuning in, everyone,” posted Wolfgang on social media. "I hope you enjoyed it."

“Distance” was written by the rocker as a tribute to his father, Eddie Van Halen, while he battled health issues in his final years before passing away last October at the age of 65.

Proceeds from the track – which topped the iTunes Top 100 songs chart in its first day of release – are going toward the late guitar icon’s favorite charity, Mr. Holland's Opus, which keeps music alive in schools by donating musical instruments to under-funded music programs, and providing vital services to school districts across the US.

Produced by Michael Baskette, Mammoth WVH’s self-titled debut will be released on June 11.
