    I concur, I can't believe my teenage group is all still up and running. We are scattered across the country now but alive nonetheless

    Exactly what songs does Eddie use metal guitar picks on?

    Word.
    That's not accurate, the best way to reduce risk is to not smoke at all in the first place!

    I heard someone say "Without You" specifically, but can't confirm the accuracy of this.

    Ive always wondered about this but never knew. I mean it would seem someone would have to hold a pic in their mouth for years to get cancer...IDK

    It's just the ramblings of a smoker in denial. Yahoo News picked up this story yesterday and in the comments were several people talking about loved ones who blamed their cancer on anything but smoking. It's pretty common.

    I quit smoking June 6, 2015...I still occasionally smoke but only if I've had a drink or two. I decided this past weekend to stop drinking again. This time forever. I have no desire to smoke now. Lost two really close friends to cancer. One in April and one last month. One smoked, one didn't. The smoker was 63. The nonsmoker was 58. The smoker worked with and for me for over 25 years. The nonsmoker for 10 years. I'm 51 and feeling my mortality that's for sure...I'm not in denial. I am truly frieghtened by my past. The massive amounts of coke. As much acid as Jim Morrison. Hard drinking. I'm lucky to be alive As Is. I'm not gonna turn into some health nut but I have totally quit all substance abuse of any kind. Upon news of Eddie going through all this again only solidifies my resolve to learn how to live clean and sober again. Haven't done coke in 20 years, weed in 15 years, narco pills in 7 years. I went 8 years not drinking. It's time to stop the drinking again. Divorce, no divorce. There is no need to hide from nor compound the train wreck I'm in right now.
    I can only imagine how Eddie feels. Life for him seems to have been going really good and now all this happens.

    Wow, more power to you, man. If you can quit the other stuff, I'm sure you can do this too!

    We're not kids anymore, that's for sure.

    There's no record of Edgar Allen Poe's death, but it had to be Cirrhosis of the liver.

    His brother was a heavy smoker and drinker for years as well and no cancer.

    I'm not saying that it's not the cause but two siblings with the same habits and one gets cancer and the other doesn't you would look for differences.

    Alex never held a metal pick in his mouth to my knowledge.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
