    i read the interview (can't remember exactly which one)where ed said he's cancer free but he said they took 1/3 of his tongue along with them....geez...can people speak normally after something like this happens to them ...also a lot of your taste buds are gone....sorry for being ignorant on this subject, but i've never met anyone that has had tongue cancer...

    There have been lots of stories/rumours regarding the level of cancer Ed had/has. None of us really know.

    He (Ed) claims to be cancer free according to his last message on the Van Halen Official website.

    No more of that sweet taste of P&$$y? [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    No more tasting the "Van Heinekins"? [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Mo more tasting the Pal Mals? [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Hey Eddie, you weren't a very good singer to begin with. But you still got your hands and fingers, so you can still do what you are great at. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    One of the worst things about cancer is that the treatments are often more deadly than the disease. The survival rates for those that DO get treatment are the same as those who do NOT. If you recall the photos from when Ed played at Wolf's school, those were the images of a man getting AGGRESSIVE treatment.

    He may be 'cancer free', but that certainly does not mean that he's 100% healthy.

    We'll probably never know how serious his illness was, and it's better that way for everyone. The problem with cancers located in the head/neck area is that they tend to spread quickly throughout the entire system, so 'tongue cancer' could easily have turned into throat cancer or something else.

    In regards to Eddie's singing abilitie's, I'm sure that there is no one out there who wants to hear Eddie singing lead in any band, but he is a fantastic backing vocalist. If you will notice in any of the VH concerts, he is almost always singing backup, and does a fantastic job. His voice blends perfectly with Anthony's. Good luck to Ed and his cancer dilema.

    Mike's voice overpowers his trmendously. You can hardly hear Ed at all.

    I have read that people diagnosed with oral cancer are only given a 50% survival rate. Half of the people diagnosed die within 5 years. Also, the people who survive have up to 20 times higher risk of developing another cancer. That risk can last 5 to 10 years. Hopefully Ed was diagnosed in the early stages and that he did not have to have part of his tongue removed. I read somewhere that he did...I hope its not true.
