    Here is a question from a fan:

    Is Eddie Van Halen still battling cancer? What is he doing musically?
    Nickolas McDaniel, Salinas, Calif.

    The last official word on Eddie's health was a statement posted on the Van Halen Web site last spring: "I'm told I'm healthier than ever and beating cancer," he wrote. "There's a good chance I will be cancer-free in the near future." Today, his management folks say the 47-year-old rocker is in fine health (but still won't reveal the type of cancer). Ironically, his career may be affected less by his illness than by his band's lack of a lead singer. Rumors spread that original frontman David Lee Roth would rejoin the group when Gary Cherone left in 1999, but that never happened. Bandmates Eddie, his brother Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony persist and have been working in the studio. But Eddie, who lives in L.A. with wife Valerie Bertinelli and son Wolfgang, 10, now puts his family and health first.

    Really old? as in 5 days old? It appeared April 21 2002. You make it sound like it was posted a few years ago. Anyway, tell that to USA Weekend Magazine who posted the article [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Listen. I'm not going to go round and round with you here. This "news" is ancient. Just because a newspaper printed it five days ago doesn't make it news.

    Now I'm done bumping this useless thread.

    Nothing to see here people!

    c'mon, guys, you're pissing up a rope with someone who thought he had a "scoop," and obviously didn't look to see if there was another thread going. but it is old news...

    That's fine...but this is the email I got from a source from the VH yahoo forum:

    Also, this small tidbit was in "USA Weekend" this past Sunday about
    Ed. Nothing new, but then no news is good news.

    &gt;&gt;Is Eddie Van Halen still battling cancer? What is he doing
    musically?
    Nickolas McDaniel, Salinas, Calif.

    The last official word on Eddie's health was a statement posted on
    the Van Halen Web site last spring: "I'm told I'm healthier than ever
    and beating cancer," he wrote. "There's a good chance I will be
    cancer-free in the near future." Today, his management folks say the
    47-year-old rocker is in fine health (but still won't reveal the type
    of cancer). Ironically, his career may be affected less by his
    illness than by his band's lack of a lead singer. Rumors spread that
    original frontman David Lee Roth would rejoin the group when Gary
    Cherone left in 1999, but that never happened. Bandmates Eddie, his

    first.&lt;&lt;

    See y'all later!



    Ancient news? I don't think so, since David Lee Roth also said something in relation to Ed's health recently [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    Don't call me a moron, ya bitch! [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    This just in! You are a MORON !

    The point of the article is about Eddie's health not about David Lee Roth.
    David Lee Roth was asked about Ed's health recently and he gave his answer on that subject!
    He heard he wasn't doing well.

    Understand? probably not! [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    The question posed in USA weekend was asked on April 21 2002..
    If you can't comprehend it yet, read it again!

    no, it was published on April 21st, and done to death on this site on April 22. next time there's groundbreaking news in your email almost a week after, check to see if we did do it to death in another thread...

    Here is the USA Weekend link and the date they posted the article and question:

    http://www.usaweekend.com/02_issues/...1whosnews.html

    I got the email dated the 24th and only been able to check my email as of today. Like I mentioned earlier, I missed the previous post here on the links in regards to the article.

    i can't see bickering over how quick or slow someone is to get news.
    some people don't spend all day on the internet, while others do.
    accept it.
