    Default Eddie Open Letter on Rolling Stone.com...

    http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdail...n-explanation/

    I would like Van Halen fans to know how much I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Without you there is no Van Halen.

    I have always and will always feel a responsibility to give you my best. At the moment I do not feel that I can give you my best. That’s why I have decided to enter a rehabilitation facility to work on myself, so that in the future I can deliver the 110% that I feel I owe you and want to give you.

    Some of the issues surrounding the 2007 Van Halen tour are within my ability to change and some are not. As far as my rehab is concerned, it is within my ability to change and change for the better. I want you to know that is exactly what I’m doing, so that I may continue to give you the very best I am capable of.

    I look forward to seeing you in the future better than ever and
    I thank you with all my heart.

    Love,

    Ed

    Not that Eddie reads these forums, but I wish him the absolute best of luck. I'm not much of a prayer guy but I'll say a little something tonight.

    This is the most positive thing I have ever seen a human being do for themselves. To publically and opening admit that you have a problem you are committed to address makes all the difference in the world. I will wait for how ever long it takes to see this man come back to his center. I believe we've not seen Eddie at his center since 5150 and parts of 0U812. This is a long time coming.

    Best wishes to a recovery on your own terms Eddie.

    Wow... I was just getting ready to log off of the forums for the weekend after reading about Dave, and this caught my eye. Thanks for posting, SE.

    God love 'im.

    My thoughts are with him. He's made the right move.

    Good luck to you Ed. If you really are making a sincere effort to get clean then I wish you the best. Take care of yourself first and worry about the band later.

    2.When ED was sober for Balance did he go to REHAB?
