Wolfgang Van Halen, son of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, had a run in with the boys in a hotel lobby and took to Twitter  to lay into boyband One Direction.

He tweeted: “Fun fact: Was just insulted by that s**tty boy band #OneDirection in the lobby of our hotel this morning! Greetings Birmingham!”

The bassist of the famous eighties band added: “No joke. That ACTUALLY happened. That group of kids in #OneDirection were d**kheads to @iierockii @gwdrums and I.”

He ended the insults with: “They must call themselves that because all of their hair points in #OneDirection”.

Wolfgang’s dad Eddie Van Halen was recently named as the greatest guitarist of all time by Guitar World magazine.
