Watch Wolfgang Van Halen absolutely shred 'Hot for Teacher' and 'On Fire' with Dave Grohl at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert

Performance also included Josh Freese on drums and the Darkness' Justin Hawkins on vocals

The Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert at London’s Wembley Stadium is in full swing, with appearances by Rush, Queen and the Foo Fighters still to come. But one of the early performance highlights so far has undoubtedly been Wolfgang Van Halen, who paid tribute to dad Eddie by serving up some shredding lead guitar licks on the Van Halen classics “On Fire” and “Hot for Teacher.”

What’s more, Wolfgang was backed by an all-star band consisting of Dave Grohl on bass, Josh Freese on drums and the Darkness’ Justin Hawkins on impressively wailing vocals. 

As Grohl said by way of introduction, “We’re lucky enough to have with us tonight a real Van Halen.”
