I don’t know about you, but I haven’t seen Van Halen in a while. Therefore, I haven’t seen Eddie Van Halen in all of that time other.
Yesterday, Bryan Adams and him hung out before a show and the Canadian Rocker shared a video of his friend playing a guitar. The legendary guitarist looked so sexy, I didn’t recognize him.
He might be 61 years old, but I think this is the best he has ever looked. Whatever he is doing, he needs to keep it up. He truly is getting better with age and you can’t Beat It!
Maybe someone needs to place a 5150 on me because I want to For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge Eddie Van Halen. When did the teacher get so hot again? I don’t remember the last time he made me Jump, but Right Now he is making me feel like it’s 1984 and we are in Panama-a-a-a!
Van Halen hit the road on January 5th and for the second time this year they have postponed several dates. The first time was because they took on too many dates, but this time it is because Eddie Van Halen suffered complications from a surgery and will need several months to recover. The band announced the news on their site by saying, “Eddie Van Halen underwent an emergency surgery for a severe bout of Diverticulitis. No further surgeries are needed and a full recovery is expected within 4 – 6 months.” According to KSDK he went in to have surgery to deal with the Diverticulitis, but he popped some of the stitches and that caused an infection. He spent three weeks in the hospital and now he’s at home recovering for the next few months.
Their November tour in Japan is postponed until he gets better which hopefully will be soon!
On Thursday it was announced that Van Halen was postponing their tour, but didn’t say why. So everyone started thinking that the reunited band couldn’t handle being around each other any more. Well David Lee Roth posted a message on Vimeo and explained that they are postponing the tour dates so they can learn Australian for when they go to a land down under. Actually he said that the “schedule has been sidelined for unnecessary roughness.” because the old guys bit off more than they can chew. So basically he is saying they need some rest.
