    I'm sure this is listed in my VH Encyclopedia but that is still packed away from the AZ move. Just curious what the Van Halen brother's parents died of?? Natural causes, cancer, etc... May give them some well needed info on what to watch out for in the future. I.e., cancer, heart disease etc.. I'm not being morbid, just looking out for them! MO.

    I'm pretty sure their mother, Eugenia, is still alive. I think Brad confirmed that at the PD.

    Not to play the irony card, but wasn't it cancer? Don't know what type, other than that they're all bad.

    To add to my last post, while Ed and Al's mom is still alive, wasn't she battling cancer (ovarian?), during the VH3 sessions? Seems like Ed mentioned that he and presumably Alex as well, wanted to be with her, and that (amongst several other things), caused a big delay in the VH3 sessions in one of those always quotable interviews (remember when he used to do those!?).

    If Ed and Al's mother was in poor health during the recording of VH3, I wonder how much that played into getting Josephina put onto the album at the last minute?

    Folks, I am pretty sure that Ed and Al's mom passed away. I have several magazines that indicate this.

    The one I did find, specifically, states (in response to a reporter's question about being moved by pain):

    "....When I came to this country, I was scared. I couldn't speak the language. I used to get the sh*t kicked out of me by white people, so to speak. I was a minority. And I can cry in a second just thinking about my father dying or my mother passing on. I don't have to manufacture pain to create."

    Excerpt taken from Guitar World, October 1999, p. 78.

    And their father died in between the 5150 tour and the recording of OU812, sometime in 1986 or 87, I believe.

    Jan Van Halen passed away in december of 1986 of a heart attack brought on by years of a bad diet...
    I don't think Eugiena has passed away.
    I think what Eddie was refering to in that article was the THOUGHT of his mother dying not her actual death.
    I think if she is alive then she must be 90 something...

    Thanks for the info. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] I never knew that about Jan. The VHE says Eugenia was born in 1914, so that would make her 87.
