    Default Eddie: "What's up, fuckers!"

    More importantly, he got the nod to open for 11 shows on a recent Van Halen tour. "We got to play arenas, which we'd never done before, in front of 10,000 or 15,000 people, including the Bell Centre in our home town... And to be really honest, it was the first time I was nervous, I mean genuinely nervous. I didn't even know I owned that emotion because I've never been nervous. But I was so nervous in Milwaukee that after the first song..."

    You forgot to take your shirt off?

    "Yeah, exactly," Jonas laughs. "Nah, I don't do that anymore. Now that I'm not scrawny anymore..."

    In addition to nerves, in Iowa, on the second night of the tour, Jonas was to experience something else unique to an opening slot for Van Halen: Eddie.

    "We were just about to go on, and all of a sudden I hear this rapid bam-bam-bam-bam on the door to our dressing room, and I just knew that on the other end of the door was Eddie Van Halen," he recounts. "So I open the door and he's standing right there: 'What's up, fuckers! Anyway, so see this hole in my tongue? Cancer. Gone. They said it was from smoking, but it was the lead picks they used to make. Want to see?' [Puts pick into the perfectly fitted hole in his tongue.] And I was like, 'Hi, I'm Jonas.'"

    "And it was a really fucked-up experience, it was shocking, but he really put us at ease."

    I think Ed just likes to have fun. A lot of fun.

    Ed sounds like the kind of guy you'd like to sit down with and have a drink...

    Well if Eddie has a hole in his tongue it would certainly explain some of the incomprehensible speech.

    I still can't believe Eddie think it's from the picks. Lead picks? I've seen steel and aluminium, shell, coins, plastic... Can't imagine they would ever make a lead pick.

    "They" I assume means the doctors, specialist, and every other rational person in the world. Smoking??? Nah, that never causes cancer. I can just see him one day saying...

    Just guessing here, being I don't play guitar, but would picks that Ed used way back in the day have had lead based paint or coloring on them??? Combine that with the smoking and vio'la. The pick shaped hole in his tounge???

    I thought he said it was the aluminum picks some time back. Maybe i'm wrong.

    Lead picks WOULD NOT work. What we have here is classic denial.

    Ed used metallic picks on the VH3 tour.... on the intro of Without You you can hear it (sliding on strings), just after the drum intro.

    I think he was mainly using those kind of picks... he use to put them in his mouth for intros like MS.

    May be that was a reason for his illness (or one of the reasons).

    I've never seen Eddie play with a steel, lead or metal guitar pick in my life.

    Steel picks, smoking, whatever. Cancer hits the healthiest people on earth more often than it does smokers or people that eat too many Big Mac's, so I doubt we'll ever know the reason. Smoking is about the only logical reason I can think of in this thread. Or, he's just living in this generation where cancer causes more death's than anything else.

    Just to clarify...I never said lead picks. I said picks with lead based paint.
