"Happy 66th Birthday, Pop," Wolf prefaced the heartfelt tweet. "I wish I could give you the biggest hug and celebrate it with you. I love and miss you so much it hurts. I don’t even know how to put it into words."

"I’ve been doing my best to hold it together, but g-------t it’s really tough being here without you," Wolf, 29, continued.

Wolf then followed up with a second tweet that read, "Not a second has gone by where you haven’t been on my mind, and today will be no different."

"I used metal picks -- they’re brass and copper -- which I always held in my mouth, in the exact place where I got the tongue cancer," he said at the time. "Plus, I basically live in a recording studio that’s filled with electromagnetic energy. So that’s one theory. I mean, I was smoking and doing a lot of drugs and a lot of everything. But at the same time, my lungs are totally clear. This is just my own theory, but the doctors say it’s possible."
