CE Updated

'I can't believe I'm having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning," Wolf, 29, wrote on Instagram and Twitter. "He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift.'

Wolf (born Wolfgang Van Halen) ended his tribute, writing: "My heart is broken and I don't think I'll ever fully recover from this loss. I love you so much, Pop.'

Van Halen and his brother Alex founded their namesake band in the 1970s, and he went on to become known as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007."
