Valerie Bertinelli is excited about her son Wolfgang Van Halen. ET caught up with the couple at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, where she raved over the GRAMMY-nominated composer.

“It’s quite moving. I mean, Wofie’s song is simply magnificent, and it’s wonderful that he got recognized for it, as well as for songwriting “Bertinelli said of her son, whom she shares with Eddie Van Halen, who died in a car accident.

While it may seem as if Wolfgang is dreaming, a victory might very well be a reality for him, with his mother sobbing at the mere thought of the event.

“Because it was the first thing that sprang to mind: ‘Wolf, you’re a songwriter,’ I thought. That is the most difficult aspect of being a musician,’ “she went on.

“He would be losing his mind, but at the same time, he would be like, ‘duh,’ because that’s how much he believed in me,” the 31-year-old artist told ET. 

“He would be losing his mind, but at the same time, he would be like, ‘duh,’ because that’s how much he believed in me.”

Wolfgang, whose song “Distance,” a homage to his late father, is nominated for Best Rock Song, expressed his delight at being in the same category as Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, and others.

“It absolutely amazing, to be in the same category as a Beatle and Dave Grohl for composition,” he remarked of the unique occasion.

“That’s why it seems like I’m dreaming this right now.”

While it may seem as if Wolfgang is dreaming, a victory might very well be a reality for him, with his mother sobbing at the mere thought of the event.

“I’m not sure I’ll be listening,” he said, “simply because it’s weird to be here.” “I believe that if that occurs, I will go deaf, and then we will see what happens.”

As she stood at her son’s side, Bertinelli couldn’t help but be overcome with emotion.

“All I can say is that we got this despite me and Ed, and I am very proud of him,” the 61-year-old actress stated, tears in her eyes.

In terms of Wolfgang’s music career, the songwriter said that he wants to compose a few more songs for himself before collaborating with any other major artists.

He said, “Man, I haven’t written enough for myself yet.” “I believe I need to have a better sense of who I am before I start collaborating with others.”

A ideal collaboration for the musician would be with Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters.

Wolfgang said, “Collaborating with someone like Dave Grohl has long been a dream of mine.” “Something along the lines of the Foo Fighters.”

He went on to say, “He’s essentially the major influence for my whole endeavour.”

Wolfgang said he and his band are paying respect to Taylor Hawkins, the band’s drummer, who passed away abruptly last month.

Wolfgang described Hawkins’ death as “extremely horrible.” “I had the pleasure of meeting him once, and he was an incredible person. 

We’re currently on the road. Every night, we’re playing a Foo Fighters song in his honour, so it’s the least I can do.”
