    It's noting real new but it was in my weekend paper. (USA Weekend is like a Parade magazine)

    the quote...

    "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. "

    The most interesting thing to me is the part about "Today, his management folks say...." Does this mean VH actually has a manager now?

    The actual newspaper had a photo of Eddie that I believe was taken at the premier he attended with Val about a year ago. The website (usaweekend.com) did not have the photo.

    hopefully this means van halen may rise again to the top of rock and roll. in this day and age of evil rap that speaks of killing people, calls women bitches and has no melodies it would be nice to have a long hiar rock and roll band at the fore front of music again. britney, jessica simpson, no doubt, dave matthews, green apple quick step, pink and others just do not cut it. i tihnk i speak for all fans brothers and sisters when the hulkamaniac brother demands that van halen rise to the occasion again!

    The quotes from Eddie in that "article" were taken from his appearance at the golf tournament last year. The whole article is recycled.

    Agreed. But the article implies that they (USA Weekend) contacted someone in management for VH.

    The fact that VH has management is news. And whoever they are, I sure wouldn't want them representing me. God knows they have really made the brothers look good...

    </font>[/QUOTE]Unless, as FORD said earlier, this whole Q&A had been done within the past year.

    I have to believe that USAToday must do a lot of these "Ask The Editor" features several months out. It's my opinion that whomever put this piece together hasn't gotten the newsrelease that VH doesn't have any management anymore.

    Ooops. Waitaminnit. Strike that.

    That isn't newsworthy. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    Shame on both parties.

    USAToday for "recycling" this Q&A and not updating their sources AND Van Halen for just not keeping us informed period. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    Cheap pop by USAToday to tie in with the latest DLR/SH news without doing any updated research.

    </font>[/QUOTE]vh controls who represents them, so that's all on vh far as i can tell.

    thing is, when did they contact them? doesn't it seem funny to anyone that ed is being mentioned when dave and sam are planning this big ol tour? nothing about eddie except in golf digest then all of a sudden this...i don't think anyone from the USA Today spoke to someone in camp halen anytime recent to be totally honest. "management" can mean a variety of things anyway...

    nah. lead time on those things are huge. i'd bet half those letters are manufactured anyways. for example, also in today's column-what kind of idiot writes a letter that says "what ever happened to Jenifer Love Hewitt? i saw her in Heartbreakers last year, and now it seems she has disappeared." more likely, the original letter said simply "whatever happened to Jennifer Love Hewitt?" they embellish the shit out of those letters so some hick that lives under a rock has some idea who a bim like JLH is. an EVH blurb the same week as the DLR/SH tour announcement is just coincidence.

    If they were trying to do that, they'd have written about the story at hand (Sam and Dave) and not some forgotten guitarist.
