A recently released photo of Eddie Van Halen has raised many speculations about the state of his health.
In the picture, Eddie appears almost unrecognizable.
At age 64, the musician appears quite swollen and apparently bald in the image, with a look similar to that of a person undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
Sleaze Roxx reported the fact and it is not yet known what is really about the state of health of Eddie, one of the greatest guitarists of all time, but this image has set the alert for Van Halen fans.
“I did hear that there was a tour and shows being talked about for this year. However, they were put off until next year and I heard some rumors about why, which I’m not gonna say on the air because I certainly hope they’re not true. It had to do with illness and I just don’t know what’s real and what’s not.”
“You never do know in that camp because they are so stingy with information, but most importantly you hope everybody is healthy, well and at one point Van Halen will indeed do something.”
“Yet, there was talk and there was certainly something to the talk by every indication that I’ve been able to find out about them going out and doing shows this Summer. That’s all been put off at least until sometime next year from what my sources are telling me.”
Van Halen, a legendary band that’s credited with restoring hard rock music to the forefront of the scene have been inactive for a while now. The last Van Halen album titled A Different Kind Of Truth was released back in 2012 and was hugely successful. The band toured for few years and eventually stopped touring once the album cycle ended. In the last few years, there has been a discussion on the possibility of Van Halen reuniting with classic lineup. Although this rumor has been active since 2017, it hasn’t materialized to date. The last update we had was when Sammy Hagar, who fronted the band for more than a decade, hinted about the possibility of a world tour with classic Van Halen lineup.
