    Yes. I believe that is the one where Ed claimed to have found the cure for cancer on his own. I know that I sound like I'm being a smart-ass, but that's what he was implying in the interview.

    He also sounded drunk at 7:00 in the morning.

    I'm not 100% positive, but I believe this is the interview that you've listed.

    Eddie Van Halen Goes Bananas on Howard Stern: The Full Highlights

    9/14/06, 1:31 pm EST

    A few days ago we reported on Eddie Van Halen’s recent radio interview with Howard Stern, but nothing but a transcription can capture the true insanity of this exchange — it’s taken us hours and hours just to process Van Halen’s vitriolic comments about David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar and how his 15-year old son Wolfgang is a better bass player than Michael Anthony. Let’s go straight to the highlights:

    On curing his tongue cancer without chemo or radiation:

    Eddie Van Halen: “I cured my cancer in a way that’s not exactly legal in this country. I’d tell you, but I don’t want to go to jail. When you drink your damn draino it just holds it at bay. It comes back. Cancer is like a cockroach. It just comes back stronger. I’m tearing apart the immune system of the cockroach and seeing how it ticks. I’ve opened up my own pathology center. Some of us open tequila bars in Mexico, I’m curing cancer. They cut a healthy piece of my tongue off and grew healthy cells outside of my body and tested them. I’m missing a third of my tongue. They butchered me. I didn’t quit smoking after I got tongue cancer cause smoking didn’t cause it.”

    On a possible reunion with David Lee Roth:

    HS: “Diamond David Lee Roth never wanted piano in Van Halen.”
    EVH: “You mean cubic zirconia?”
    HS: “You’re never going to do a reunion with him, are you?”
    EVH: “Ummm…You know, I’m open to anything.”
    HS: “Really? He makes it seem like you are never open…”
    EVH: “In 2000 Alex and I tried to pull something together with him.”
    HS: “What happened? You couldn’t stand being around him?”
    EVH: “No, the guys’s a loose cannon - but I can deal with loose cannons.”
    Robin: “Everyone says you’re the problem.”
    EVH: “Yeah, because I don’t respond or talk about this stuff.”

    On Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony’s current Sans Halen tour:

    EVH: “Michael Sobolewski [Michael Anthony’s real last name] is out touring with ‘the little red rocker’ … I mean the little red worm. I got no problem with these guys, but they’re billing themselves as the other half of Van Halen. My brother is the other half of Van Halen. They’re out there selling hot sauce and tequila and playing all my songs. It doesn’t bother me. It just makes them a cover band.”

    On the porno movie he wrote two songs for:

    EVH: “I don’t call it porn. I call it sex. It’s like Braveheart with a cum shot. Everyone’s giving me their dweeb opinion about this - but without sex you wouldn’t be here to give me your dweeb opinion.”

    On his new girlfriend:

    EVH: “I have a girlfriend. Her name’s Janie. She’s a press agent…You’re damn right she’s super hot. We met at a press conference. We’ve been together two months.”

    On his fifteen-year-old son Wolfgang joining Van Halen:

    EVH: “My son Wolfgang plays drums, guitars and bass. This kid is fucking dangerous. If I excel at the speed of sound, he excels at the speed of light. My brother goes, ‘This is the first time I’ve had bass in my headphones.’ He’s only fifteen years old and he’s getting laid. He’s spanking it too.”
    HS: “How do you know that?”
    EVH: “When you spend 45 minutes in the bathroom you’re not taking a shower. … Valerie and I have joint custody of Wolfgang. For the last couple of weeks Alex, he and I have been jamming together.”
    HS: “You wouldn’t go back on the road with Hagar, would you?”
    EVH: “I’m pretty much open to anything. What’s going to happen is that there’s a new member of Van Halen, and that is my son.”
    HS: “I’m hearing your son is in and Michael Anthony is out.”
    EVH: “My son is in and Sobolewski can do whatever he wants. The name Van Halen, the family legacy, is going to go on long after I’m gone. This kid is just a natural. I’m going to have him play on a solo record, and it’s going to be out - he and I.”

    why spend the time and tab this out???? any points you are trying to address to us???? I remember listening to this live, and I believe it was at a point that we'd all agree Ed was a little out of whack.

    Yes: A fellow unfamiliar with the interview was curious. I did him a favor and posted it. Thanks for your concern, and for helping the guy out with your contribution.

    Yep, me too.

    I can't help it, but I thought it was hysterical. Lol....I laughed myself to tears when Ed referred to Dave as "cubic zirconia". Lol....sorry, I love Dave, but that was funny as hell.

    I find it hard to read that as i have before.

    Ed really has slid in terms of being a quality human being. The guy used to be so much nicer. Hes just a prick now and that is a shame.

    Yeah, I agree, it must really suck to seemingly hate two guys that you made great music with for years. I mean Sam and Mike were a part of his life for a long time and they were like brothers for a while. Now with no options left, he goes back to Dave(whom he has seemingly hated for 20 plus years) so he can tour and at the same time get back at Sam and Mike for having a life while he was a hopeless drunk. Lots of misguided anger there!

    That being said, I will be attending the show when it comes to town, can't help myself. Just a desperate fan of a once great band!

    i have never heard that interview. kinda bums me out! i hope he really doesn't think of mike and sammy that way. hope it was just the booze talkin'. eddie still rocks. maybe the butchered tongue thing accounts why he has a slight speech impediment. it kinda comes out in the 18 minute interview at 5150 with the dudes from fender regarding the 300 frankies release. mike in k.c.
    in my world there are only 3 guitar heroes; eddie, eric j., and S.R.V.

    Do you have a thinking impediment? If Eddie does think of Mike and Sammy that way, I'm sure he has reasons that are personal, which is none of anyone's business but Ed's and Ed's alone.


    Maybe you need to go back and listen to the interview again, and while your at it, watch the PC again. Eddie does not have a speech impediment. He sounds very normal for your information.

    not here to start fights, but i hear what i hear! he does have a slight speech "ailment". i guess you're one of those that believe no one can say anything about eddie unless it is complimentary. regardless, i live in the real world and i call them as i see them! answer me this if you kimmie5150; what would ed have done if sammy did not accept the lead singer position in 85? ed owes sammy a great deal of respect in my opinion, and sammy and mike certainly doesn't deserve what eddie has said and done over the last few years!!!! i love eddie, he is my guitar hero, but he is faulted in many ways. i think ed was deperate to get the van halen name in the public eye again so he crawled back to dave to do so. what happens when dave dumps VH again? who will eddie turn to then? sebastion bach? david cassidy? nope! sammy and michael most likely because by then, the public will be ready to hear all of those other kick-ass tunes from the post roth era! mike in k.c.
    in my world there are only 3 guitar heroes; eddie, eric j., and S.R.V.
