One Direction insult Van Halen? Yeah, we weren't expecting that one either. But according to band's bassist, Wolfgang Van Halen, the cheesy boy band weren't very nice at a Birmingham hotel.
"Fun fact: Was just insulted by that s**tty boy band #OneDirection in the lobby of our hotel this morning! Greetings Birmingham!" Wolfgang posted on Twitter, following that up with: "No joke. That ACTUALLY happened. That group of kids in #OneDirection were dickheads to @IIEROCKII @GWDrums and i." He then posted a very odd insult of his own, saying "They must call themselves that because all of their hair points #OneDirection." We don't really get it. Well, we do, but it's really not very good. Tremonti drummer Garrett Whitlock then weighed in on the fun, by tweeting, ''had a run in with some boy band in the hotel lobby. no worries. I can't take a insult from someone who doesn't even write there own tunes (sic)''. Ouch.
Wolfgang - the son of guitar legend Eddie Van Halen - has been in the music business since the Van Halen family formed the band 1972. The band has been keeping a low profile since Eddie underwent emergency surgery for Diverticulitis, a digestive disorder of the colon, in August.
