    I see that Van Halen had to postpone a few shows on the Diver Down tour due to Eddie fracturing his wrist. How did he fracture it?

    It couldn't have been too bad. They played October 11-14, then the shows that were cancelled were 15, 16 and 18th of October. Then they started up again on the 19th.

    Angel, did he really introduce his fist to a wall? You're use of the has me unsure if you're joking.

    Glenn,
    I am almost 99% sure he put his fist thru a wall, or at least tried to put it thru...
    the was because it could have been any #
    of people that pissed him off to the point
    of doing this.....
    But I'm sure I did read that somewhere....
    he said it was stupid to do it anyway
    I take violence seriously

    I thought it had something to do with a tabloid story about Dave having an alleged affair with Valerie. Turned out to be about Alex's wife, who was also named Valerie, and it was something that happened before Alex was involved with her.

    I have no idea if there is any truth to it or not.

    I thought he fractured his wrist fooling around in his hotel room. "Fooling around" could mean any number of things. Perhaps more than a few beers were involved?

    The fracture was on his left hand, and not his right, therefore was not as serious. It also happens that they were supposed to record a bunch of live tunes on that tour for a live album, but the plans were scrapped because the band thought that there playing might not be up to their usual standard of excellence due to the fracture.

    I had assumed from Angel that it must have been his right hand. Being right handed, if you punched something it would almost always be with your right hand. If it was actually his left hand, that kinda changes things.

    Again, the fracture couldn't have been too bad, because they were only off for a few nights and then they were right back at it.

    Okay....so his left hand was "fooling around"
    with a wall in a hotel room...
    And I'm sure more than a few beers were
    involved.....
    BTW-Did Dave fool around with the other Val?

    In malcom domes book, it says that he fell on a wet floor when confronting dave about alex's valerie who he thought was his valerie. in guitar FTPM it said he was fooling around. More than likely we will never know becuase i bet there was more to it than meets the eye or there would not be so many stories. probably the truth is really embarassing

    I'd like to read Malcolm Dome's book, and in fact I have it on order from a local bookstore. Unfortunately, it seems like I may die of old age before I get it. I don't think you can get it from the Van Halen Store anymore either.

    Actually I believe it was his RIGHT hand because I remember seeing a picture of him at the time and it was his pick hand, so it would be his right hand.
