    Default A little Eddie info from Lukather's webmaster

    My email: I assume this will go to a web master and not the man himself, but either way I want to say I am a big fan of Steve's work. Some of the most inspired music in my collection is courtesy of Luke. I do have a question however, and I was hoping maybe you could help. What is Eddie Van Halen doing these days? Fans are screaming for a new album, tour, whatever from him and I know Steve and Eddie were once very good friends. thanks for any knowledge, and if ya need proof, check out vhforums.com. Take care,thanks and good luck moving forward.

    Thnx for your nice mail.
    Eddie is not doing that well lately. His mother died recently and he has to get his shit together again.
    Hope he'll be fine soon,
    Arend

    Nothing new, but it's quite evident to the fans and his friends that he's going through some hard times. Hopefully he comes through, but anytime soon would be asking too much given his frame of mind.

    Well it's expected, we all know how bad the new millenium has been to Eddie. He lost his dad during what were better times (i.e. #1 records with Sammy) but since he was in rough shape beforehand and now his mother's passing, I'd say he's out of commission for awhile longer.

    thankfully he doesnt sugar coat it, there's enough of that already to start a new brand of cereal.
    well, let the guesses, questions and speculation continue..is he saying Ed is nt doing well emotionally, physically, both or just professionally speaking?

    I know this place is "only a message board" out in the ether, but ive made friends here who have helped me and ive helped at different times, along with all the other studff..and its too baD eD Cant bring himslef down to our level and see all the love here for him. You never know, in tough times, its good to have a friend or two and i'd be willing to bet he could find some of that here, or at least some people to relate to whatever he's going through.

    after you cut thrpough all the labels and so forth, Ed is still just a human being and last i checked, we all could use some support now and again.

    I hope Ed finds his way

    Poor guy. I really feel for him, he's been thru a lot. He's just gotta work thru it all and hopefully be strong enough to release some music. After the whuppin VHIII took, I don't blame him for not wanting to release anything tho.

    Well, I hope Edward can get his shit together, for his own sake and that of his son.

    Agreed. Maybe Sammy, Michael & Alex need to be more involved in Eddie's life, to help him through this rough time. I know how hard it is to deal with an alcoholic, but, when it's someone you love, or are close too, you don't give up without at least trying. It's tough to beat the bottle. In my life time, it won 4 out of 5 times, and is about to be 5 for 5. Sad, but true. I have nothing but best wishes for Eddie. If given the choice, be a drunk & make music or be sober & not do anything, I would like to see him choose the latter. I would rather him be well & with his family, and be happy. If making new music makes him happy, fine. If not, well that's fine too. Just be well Eddie.

    Alex is going through his mom's passing just as much as Ed and I'm sure the brothers are there for each other.
