    Default Does Ed have cancer again??

    I heard a rumor from a co-worker, whose buddy works in a treatment center...

    It's just an unsubstantiated rumor at best, so take it for what it is.

    "I've been sworn to secrecy, but I was told the REAL reason for the canceled dates
    is a round of treatment for COLON CANCER, which apparently Ed has"


    If you read his recent interviews, Ed lets it slip that he had more cancer between the 07/08 tour, and the ADKOT tour....

    This would make a 3rd bout of cancer, in 2 or 3 different areas..

    Makes a hell of a lot more sense than "we're just burned out....
    Nobody really bought that excuse did they?

    Most of us were thinking either
    A) a bit of rest and repair for Dave's voice
    or
    B) a return battle with illness (or addiction) on Ed's part.

    As a long-time fan of this man's music,
    I've love for someone to squash this rumor like
    a bug on the windshield of a car doing 120 on the autobahn.

    This is just me, and just my humble opinion. Just thinkin that I'd rather not know, nor speculate, until people in the VH camp announce it themselves. It's fun to break a story but for me I think if it's a rumor it's better to not say anything. But that's just me.

    I hear ya-, NoBrown..
    Why cause a bunch of worry over a weak rumor, right?

    you've got a valid point.

    Then again..., given the less-than-forthcoming nature of the Dave & The Brothers over the years..speculation has become something of a full-time sport for Van Halen fans over the years.....lol..

    Yeah I know. I just think it's private. Something like that, just not a good situation when people are speculating. Not trying to harp on the OP for starting the thread, just a comment.

    all good from here, bro...
    you have your opinion, and your certainly entitled to it, no worries


    My only counter to your logic would be if you have 'no comment' then don't lie to your fans with a false statement.

    If it's private, just say so and let it be...
    Don't tell us you're exhausted if it ain't the truth..

    I can respect family privacy all day long,
    as long as I'm not handed a lie first, you know?

    If it is true, I hope your "co-worker's buddy" gets fired and punished instantly.

    now THAT I agree with...if dude is leaking confidential patient info
    (& this certainly would fall into that category)
    then homie should have his ass handed to him and fired on the spot.

    hmm...maybe we should delete this thread then?

    As the thread-starter, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    That's too awful to even think about. Really hoping it's false.

    Certianly hope it's false, but respect Ed's privacy.

    From the Esquire magazine story (mentioned the return of cancer cells to his mouth), "I haven't talked about this, because I don't talk about this."

    But I agree...If true (in anyway) the co-workers buddy" needs to be fired right away. Totally unacceptable.
    For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge the New England Fucking Patriots, Dallas Fucking Cowboys, New York Fucking Giants, Washington Fucking Redskins, Carolina Fucking Panthers, Tampa Bay Fucking Bucs, Florida Fucking Marlins, Atlanta Fucking Braves, New York Fucking Mets, Boston Fucking Red Sox, Boston Fucking Bruins, and New Jersey Fucking Devils.
