Wolfgang Van Halen is remembering his father, the late rocker Eddie Van Halen.

(CNN)Wolfgang Van Halen is remembering his father, the late rocker Eddie Van Halen.

In an interview with Howard Stern, his first since the death of his father last month, Wolfgang Van Halen spoke about their life together and debuted a new tribute song, "Distance," which brought Stern's co-host Robin Quivers to tears.

Van Halen, known as "Wolfie," cleared up rumors he was taking his father's place as the band's guitarist.

"You can't have Van Halen without Eddie Van Halen.

I'm not my dad.

He added that outside of a possible tribute show in the future and archival releases further down the line, Van Halen is done.

"I don't have a dad anymore and I'm coming to terms with that," he continued.

"So, I think fans can come to the terms with the fact that we're not going to have Van Halen anymore.

The music is going to live on forever but you can't continue without Eddie Van Halen. "

Every day, man.

Some days are better than others.
