    Default OH GOD, NO!

    I was listening to the local radio statinon in Columbus, OH and they were interviewing a guy that does the "Official Death Pool". They asked about Eddie because they heard he wasn't doing very good. The guy's reply was "Eddie is doing pretty bad, I mean he had cancer of the mouth and now he has cancer of the throat. I mean the guy never even stopped smoking, he's like a three pack a day smoker.

    Oh dear God, please say a pray everyone. I can't even hardly stand to think of this happening.

    you can't believe ANYTHING you hear on the radio...where do you think they get their info?...INTERNET RUMORS
    let's be real...EVH was GOD

    I understand that, really I do but I frequent several VH/EVH boards and I have not heard one person say anything about Ed having cancer again (other than when Ed was in New York, people wondering if he was getting more treatment). I guess that's what concerns me, it doesn't seem to come from an internet rumor. The guy didn't hesitate, he flat out said "and now he has throat cancer". I'm going to call the station and see if they know anything else. It doesn't make it a fact but working within the music industry, they may hear more stuff than the average joe.

    If Eddie were seriously ill, I don't think Sammy would be ripping him left and right in those recent interviews.

    FUCK!!!!

    I messaged the radio station and here's the reply:

    Hey Donna,

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Death Pool Dave has access to many celebrity medical records through friends who happen to work in the medical field. Archie, who is also a huge VH fan has told me the same in the past. But who knows...He may become the next Keith Richards and live forever with replacement organs...Thanks for listening and we'll keep ya posted...

    Hi - I was listening to the show this morning and the guy was on about the
    Death Poll. You had asked about Eddie Van Halen and he mentioned that Eddie
    wasn't doing well, that he had cancer of the mouth and now he has throat
    cancer. Have you heard that somewhere else besides this guy? I frequent
    quite a few music boards and had not heard this rumor anywhere. Do you
    think this is true? This will truly be a depressing day if it is....

    Thanks for your time.

    this smells like BS..."death pool dave has friends in the medical field"?...first of all, these records are confidential and his "friends" can get fired..

    just another rumor if you ask me

    Alot of websites refer to Eddie's battle with Mouth and Throat Cancer. This guy probably read an old article without realizing it and added Eddie to his list to get more air time and the attention of all the VH fans starving for any news about Ed.

    Actually this rumor was from last year. I remember the guys name and it was exactly the same story.

    Total BS.

    It was posted here I believe however I doubt that it was totally recovered from the hacking incident.

    If it is, I am too busy at work to look it up.

    Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. I'm glad to hear that I'm freaking out over nothing!

    I love Ed just as much as the next guy and I don't know any inside info or anthing, but if someone told me this was true I would probobly believe it. I was looking at my VH scrapbook that I have had since the early eighties and it is filled with VH pics and pics of Ed. Almost every pic of him is with a cigarette! The amount of years he has been smoking has got to be doing some pretty bad damage somewhere. I just hope Ed comes back to this world and gets healthy again. Being a VH fan is really getting to be a drag.
