Van Halen and Tremonti bass player Wolfgang Van Halen grew up as the son of one of the greatest living guitarists in rock history and learned how to play power chords at his old man's knee. But Wolfgang also told us that there came a time when he discovered his own musical influences: "The first band that I actually really dug a lot was Blink-182, because I think Travis Barker is an awesome drummer and I loved how the two singers harmonized -- it really got me into, like, harmonizing and drums and stuff. But the big change that got me into like heavier music was probably Tool. I liked the weird time signatures and just how heavy it got -- like, Danny Carey is a huge drum influence of mine, and so is Justin Chancellor on the bass."
