Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen is reportedly doing well after undergoing emergency surgery for diverticulitis. According to the band’s official Facebook page, the guitar great was suffering from a severe bout of the condition and underwent surgery to alleviate the pain.
Getting Eddie Van Halen to talk about the inspiration behind any of his songwriting efforts is rather difficult, in part because he refuses to take much credit for his work. “I’ve said plenty of times, I can’t claim to ever have really written anything. Because I don’t really feel like I’m responsible, it comes through me.”
Back in January, Eddie Van Halen donated 75 guitars from his collection to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation for use in Los Angeles public schools. In a new interview, Felice Mancini, the foundation’s executive director, explains how the transfer took place.
Eddie Van Halen says the current album cycle with David Lee Roth isn’t a one-time gimmick. This is the future of Van Halen, and the band has a bright future. In an interview with Guitar World the legendary guitarist talks about what once held them back and what now keeps them looking forward.
To say things between Van Halen and former members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony are strained is maybe a bit of an understatement. But despite the tensions there still a lot of love there for what the current Chickenfoot members did with their former band.
Eddie Van Halen‘s pup Kody Van Halen is a rock star in his own right. Forget his bipedal owner being the most famous member of the Van Halen clan. This four-legged creature has his own Facebook page and he’s been snapped in public repeatedly. He’s a rock ‘n’ roll, A-list pup.
In his first interview in years, Eddie Van Halen discloses that his cancer returned twice last year, that he’s emerged victorious in his battle with alcohol, and that his son Wolfgang reminds him of his own father.
It’s possible New Life Christian Center pastor Mark Granville would have been thrown off his game last week, had he only recognized the famous faces hanging on his every word from the front row. Alex and Eddie Van Halen took in mass at the Trenton, N.J. church, but Granville had never heard of them.
Suddenly band class in Los Angeles just got a whole lot cooler. Eddie Van Halen has donated 75 guitars from his personal collection to music programs in the L.A. area. The rocker teamed up with the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation to provide instruments to schools without enough for students to play.
The rumor mill has been churning for some time about new music from Van Halen, and now comes a little more fuel to the fire, but this time from an insider who says the band is at work mixing the new album. The insider is a little unusual, too.
After a 3 year break from playing live, Van Halen may be about to get their stage legs back this fall, at a festival in Australia. That's the word from Soundwave Revolution, where the band is listed as the headliners of the traveling festival.
