Very cool, Eddie. Get well soon.
I have been willfully ignorant of the repercussions of remaining in my past mistakes, past their fermentation point.

If this is true, this is not a good sign. I pray he pulls through.

Montreal Gazette reports:

As rumours swirl that Eddie Van Halen is very ill and suffering from an unconfirmed illness, those close to him – including one particular pretty woman – have recently made it a point to visit him, for what they fear may be the last time.

An unconfirmed illness? The motherfucker has throat cancer - CONFIRMED.

What kind of shit article is this?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77086513


During the 80's, I heard mixed stories about Eddie Van Halen's (EVH) personal life. He grew up a devout Catholic and married Valerie Bertinelli, who is also Catholic (Italian, no surprise). Back then, they seemed like the ideal couple as their personal lives weren't in the spotlight (ala paparazzi style). Most likely, this is due to a very good PR team.

Flip the coin over and you see what led to EVH's problems. He smoked and drank, which is not uncommon among Catholics, especially the Irish. However, EVH also smoked pot and used cocaine. This was also not that uncommon among celebrities during the 80's. It became a problem for EVH as he lost control and became an addict. EVH's addiction also became Valerie Bertinelli's problem. EVH had 1/3 of his tongue removed due to cancer. Yet, his addiction still controlled him. That was it for Valerie Bertinelli, she could no longer handle seeing EVH self-destructive behavior kill him and divorced him.

The fact that she recently visited EVH (other than they had a son together), shows she still cares for him. So EVH's health situation must be worse than is being publicized.

I'm writing this reply as my wife's family mourn the loss of her uncle last week due to pulmonary edema. Like my mom and uncle, years of smoking (and drinking in both uncles cases) contributed to their early deaths.

Nuno was the main reason that VH hired Gary.

Just to get something of Nuno's. Didn't work.

Yep, he's that much of a cunt.

I’ve always heard Nuno was quite the moody dandy...
 Quoting: Bad Pattern


He was, but he wasn't a drunken drug addict that blamed everyone around him, including said guitar tech mentioned earlier, for his own faults. EVH was, and is a cunt to everyone around him. If you could ask Ted Templeman, you would get a real idea what he was about.

Nuno has soul in his playing. EVH is a mimic. An uber-talented mimic, but the music is just technical noodling with no feeling.

Van Halen - Diver Down - Big Bad Bill

Eddie's dad on clarinet.


Dave: "I think it's a great song. And there's been this thread winding its way through all of Van Halen's music and all of our albums since beginning with 'Ice Cream Man.' I played acoustic guitar and songs like this for quite a while before I ever joined Van Halen. It's music. Why do I have to bang my head to every single song on every single album? I don't think the audience has that much lack of creativity or imagination."

Eddie: "It was Dave's idea to do 'Big Bad Bill'. He bought himself one of those Sanyo Walkman-type things with the FM-AM radio, and you can record off the radio if you like something you hear. He was up in his bedroom at his father's house and he found that if he stood in a certain spot and pointed his antenna a certain way, he picked up this weird radio station in Louisville, Kentucky. He recorded 'Big Bad Bill' and played it to us, and we started laughing ourselves silly and going, 'That is bad! Let's do it!' Dave suggested, 'Hey, we can get your old man to play the clarinet.' We said, 'sure.'

"It's so funny, because I couldn't play the song for you right now. I had to read because there were so many chords, I just couldn't remember it. So here's my father to the left of me, sitting on a chair with a music stand in front of him, and I'm sitting next to him with sheet music in a stand. Mike was there, too, playing like an acoustic guitar bass – the kind they have in Mexican restaurants where they come up, play in front of your face, and aggravate you. We had a great time. It looked like an old '30s or '40s session. I used some thick Gibson hollowbody with f-holes. My father hadn't played in a long time because he had lost his left-hand middle finger about 10 years ago. He was nervous, and we told him, 'Jan, just have a good time. We make mistakes! That's what makes it real.' I love what he did, but he was thinking back 10 years ago when he was smokin', playing jazz and stuff. He played exactly what we wanted."

Knew his guitar tech from the 80's-90's

EVH was a cunt.

A talented mimic, but a cunt nonetheless.

Check out Allan Holdsworth's music. That's where EVH stole his chops.

Everyone has to go sometime, hope he acts accordingly and makes amends for the crossroads he had to bear.

 Quoting: HO LEE FUKK


Not much else to tell that wouldn't get shut down by the fan boys that hang on his every riff.

I will say that we hung around the same circles in Boston.

EVH used to rag on the guitar tech endlessly. The poor kid grew up idolizing EVH and was crushed when his hero turned out to be a turd. That tech could play too. Probably stood backstage and ghost played when EVH was too wasted to play.

EVH is also a jealous cunt that couldn't stand Nuno when he was with Extreme. Nuno had/has the chops and is soulful to boot. Name a song of EVH that has any soul. It's all riffs that anyone can learn by repetition. He's technically great, but I haven't bought an album since the first one.

He had a good run, but it looks like he has to pay the piper for his weaknesses.
