It seems Wolfgang is following the advice because he continues to tour with his band Mammoth WVH. Next year, he will embark on a new tour with the band Dirty Honey. However, Wolfgang said that he does understand why some fans only want to hear the classics. He shared that many rock music fans have tied the genre deeply with nostalgia and the good ‘ole days.
