    I'm not sure how closely you follow - or don't follow - TMZ, but actually they are a VERY reliable source of info. In fact, they are the first outlet to break many stories in the entertainment world. We're not talking about the National Enquirer, here.

    Not sure how the TMZ comments section turned into a Trump battle. Odd.

    He looks like a guy with health issues that couldn't give two fucks about his next album or tour...and I can't blame him.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I knew a few people over the years that worked at TMZ and most of what they post is actually leaked out by the celebrities themselves, because they want to control the narrative, but they don't want to look like they do. I would be surprised if the Van Halen camp didn't have TMZ put this up. If anything, it's certainly going to make some of DLR's recent comment seem insensitive. He's certainly going to be asked a lot more about it now, too.

    I understand Eddie not being able or willing to work. Cancer treatment is no joke. You don't get over it like you have the flu. It's great news that Eddie is reportedly doing better. Looks like he's been battling this for 20 years now, we just haven't heard about most of his issues. Then his diverticulitus from several years back...Eddie is a fighter for sure. Keep fighting Eddie!!!

    Roth has been rather angry in his last few interviews. If he is aware of what Eddie is actually going through and he's angry about having to wait around...then he can suck a bag of dicks. Eddie is in no shape to be touring and working on new material for a new album. I just want the guy to live. Maybe one day if he has his health and the interest, he can do something but right now it doesn't matter.

    If this is indeed ďEdís story to tellĒ that Dave referenced, then I totally agree. DLR can fuck right on off.

    If true, it would explain why a rock band isn't his #1 priority.
    Best wishes Eddie, thanks for everything, you are an inspiration!

    Yeah, that's why I was hoping it wasnt a huge deal, like 'this isn't about your fucking hip', something relatively minor, dude looks awful and you're worried about touring?

    Default TMZ reports Eddie has been getting treatment in Germany for years

    I could understand DLRís frustration in one way. If youíre going to be in Van Halen, you canít do anything else (I guess unless youíre Wolfgang), we know those are the rules. Iím sure itís frustrating to want to do music and tour and it only happens every so often. So if wasted years went by, and now itís out of the question, well then why did we waste the years where we could do something? Yeah, I get that you know the rules going in, and it doesnít make him look any better now, but I get his apparent frustration, in a way.

    While I find it hard to believe that a lifetime smoker and alcoholicís mouth/tongue/throat cancer was caused by using a metal pick in 1998, I wish Eddie the best, as well as his family.

    As far as TMZ, I remember the day TMZ had Michael Jacksonís death hours before any other news media. Except one.

    I was a substitute teacher and didnít work that day. I saw it the moment TMZ went with dead instead of hospitalized. Everyone else went with hospitalized for hours.

    I told my then-girlfriend, who was online editor of the local paper. She went to the newsroom with the report, so our paper went with a story about TMZís report. I remember comments under the story being we canít get timely news about local sports, but this paper scoops everyone on the biggest celeb story of the year.

    Picked up by the Daily Mail...

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...itar-pick.html

    I wonder if an official statement will be forthcoming?
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    This gossip brings back one key thing about Eddie's old claim about using metal pics. I have never seen him use a metal pic at a show, certainly the few I got at early 80's shows were all plastic and just browsing through collectors and eBay listings, no steel pics either.

    IIRC, he used a metal pic specifically for Without You off of VHIII.

    Theyíre a tabloid media org specifically designed to sensationalize potentially sordid celebrity events. They are often errant with their investigative process, which largely entails stalking celeb haunts and contacts for on the street sound bytes.
