    Maybe this should go in Rumors, but hey! That's what moderators are for

    Yesterday, I went to Ozzfest here in Boston at the Tweeter Center. I was in the second row, but spent the whole night at the barrier. (Sidebar: "EXCELLENT!")

    So, during the night, there were always a bunch of photographers around there. I said to my bud that one of 'em looked familiar. It was Ross Halfin. He's on like every Behind The Music if you don't know him. So, I thought "cool".

    After Pantera and before Ozzy, he was down in the pit with the gorilla security guards right in front of me and my buds. My buds starting talking to him, asking him generic kiss-ass questions like "Whatcha up to?", etc. And then, the lightbulb in the ol' noggin clicked on.

    So, I asked him if he knew anything on good ol' VH. He said that Eddie's been the hospital the past couple of weeks going through chemo. That gave me a shock. He mentioned the tounge thing. I asked about the reunion, but I couldn't hear what he said through the noise. I was trying to figure out if he was just generalizing Eddie's visit to Houston, or if he really meant a couple weeks of chemo.

    So, I thought that I'd pass along this info. I know people get slagged and thrashed for posting "info". But I thought it'd be interesting to share with the Linkers.

    I'm not surprised in the least. That's been my assumption for the last month or so. Ever since that cancer story was so quickly pulled, I knew something was up. That is the only thing (IMO) holding up any VH news. There are too many stories pointing to a reunion, but the reason for the silence is something else. I've had a strong feeling that Ed isn't in as good health as some of us think. I believe his health is a BIG question mark. And we don't know much because he is a VERY private person. He is probably having a lot of trouble coming to grips with his health, and is embarrassed to share with the public.
    I think all the hush hush and cryptic answers given by VH associates is out of RESPECT for Ed.

    I DO think a reunion happened, or was started, and his health scare has halted everything.

    I really hope he gets better, and can share more music with the world. I'm just having visions of a bald Eddie after chemo, frightening isn't it?
    peace

    What difference does that make? He shaved his head in 1995, didn't he? Besides, you guys are always making the bald Roth jokes right?

    Seriously, who knows? Cherone said Eddie was fine, and he's not known for lying. I would think if he knew that Eddie was in bad health he would either say nothing at all, or tell the truth about it and encourage the fans to pray for Ed's recovery. I don't think there's sufficient evidence to start another "Eddie's sick" panic.

    I think Ed looks good with short hair

    And, I'm glad Roth has hair (plugs or whatever)

    I hate to see this stuff come back about the cancer

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong-he started treatment at the end of May- so he has one month to go-then the twelve weeks are up-chemo is probably going to be a last resort.

    If Eddie was really this sick and was in the hospital, would he have been at Brad Pitt's wedding on Saturday???

    Also like FORD said, it is highly unlikely Gary would have said the tongue thing was blown way out of proportion if indeed Eddie does have cancer. He wouldn't have addressed it at all, sounds like he almost volunteered that info, and Gary's not a liar.

    I just wondered if you'd seen something other than the ET report since you live in that part of the world. I hear your point about "who cares", but we do spent a lot of time here at the Links on just this kind of seemingly irrelevant information.

    Like Brett said, what does this guy know about Eddie Van Halen?! There has never been a Behind The Music on VH. I'm sure the there are more relible sources than him. This probably should go to the Rumor Mill.

    Not "who cares" as in us not caring, of course WE care....I mean in the grand scheme of the celebrity world, Eddie Van Halen's attendance at Brad Pitt's wedding is of no importance to the rest of the world unless he was actually there, so why lie about it. But no I have seen nothing that says he was there.
