Eddie Van Halen’s health debate has been ongoing for more than a year now.
Today we have come across a report from TMZ revealing Eddie’s ongoing battle with cancer.
We’ve heard Eddie has been flying between the United States and Germany to get treatment for throat cancer.
Cancer treatment has been ongoing for more than a few years.
It’s also revealed that Eddie’s main source of cancer could be his past heavy smoking habits and surprisingly also due to a metal guitar pick he used more than 20 years ago.
According to sources, Van Halen axeman Eddie Van Halen has gotten some visits from his ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli, who split in 2002 after 21 years of marriage.
Sources say she jumped at the chance to see if there was something she could do to make his days any easier. Sources say:
“She’s just that type of warm, loving and compassionate person.”
“When she and Eddie were together, she was always cleaning him up, straightening his tie or helping him comb his hair. That’s the way she is. And I think she feels Eddie needs that now.”
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.
