    Default National Enquirer reports EVH nearly died

    We all know EVH had emergency surgery lately, but the National Enquirer is reporting Eddie was near death. Take it for what it's worth, it the Enquirer.

    Sounds somewhat believable. Probably should have written that the cayenne wasn't the root cause of the problem but helped the problem come sooner....granted I am not a Doctor.

    Any Doctors out there?

    The way he tortured his body for so long I don't blame him for doing any body cleansing....
    Right here I say....

    Poor Eddie, sounds pretty horrible if true. I missed the story while going through the checkout line at the grocery store yesterday. I saw the Enquirer, but only saw some deal about Travolta being gay and how traumatized his hot wife Kelly Preston was.

    Didn't Eddie almost die back in the early 80's from malaria? I vaguely remember that he had a fever of like 106 and was half-dead.

    Good thing this cat has nine lives.

    Diverticulitis is no joke, and does not happen overnight. It is amazing that Eddie was able to perform and tour with this happening. I have to believe that this condition is at least part of the reason why the tour was postponed at the time it was.

    Default EDDIE VAN HALEN'S BRUSH WITH DEATH

    Rock star Eddie Van Halen was on the brink of death recently when doctors battled to save him after his intestines "exploded," the new issue of the National Enquirer exclusively reveals.

    The 57-year-old guitarist was clinging to life when he was rushed to the hospital in excruciating pain after swallowing a cayenne-based diet concoction, revealed an insider.

    Eddie’s wife Janie Liszewski, his son Wolf, 21, and ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli all feared the worst. “Janie was beside him the whole time and Wolf kept a constant vigil,” said a source. “They were sick with worry because he was in so much pain, it really was touch and go.

    "Valerie was scared to death Eddie was going to die. Although he’s remarried, Eddie is still close to Valerie, and she was there for him the whole time.”

    The cause of his pain was reportedly the Master Cleanse Diet, which the musician had tried because it is supposed to rid toxins from the body but it had disastrous effects. “Eddie’s abdominal region was a disaster area,” disclosed a pal. “The spicy treatment touched off an explosion in his intestines.”

    The controversial diet is an extreme regimen that temporarily replaces food with a liquid consisting of water, fresh lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. It promises to bring about a rapid slim down but the lack of nutrition and high spice levels cause concern among health professionals.


    "The stress of fad diets increases pressure on the colon, and if the person has diverticulitis there may be leakage from the bowel into the abdomen,” explained Dr. James O’Brien, who has not treated the rocker.

    Fortunately for Eddie, he has overcome the health crisis, and his people say: “No further surgeries are needed.”

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    That shit (no pun intended) will take you away from here. All it takes is for the intestine to rupture and spread bacteria throughout the body cavity and the bloodstream; then sepsis sets in quick. That is what killed my sister in law. If this is indeed what happened to EVH, he is one lucky man to survive it.
