    EDDIE VAN HALEN's Widow JANIE: 'I'm Doing The Best I Can'
    March 5, 2021


    Eddie Van Halen's widow Janie Van Halen (née Liszewski) says that she is "doing the best" she can, five months after the legendary guitarist's passing.

    In addition to mourning his loss, Janie has dealt with the deaths of her brother last June and her mother in November.

    Janie, who is a ballroom dancer, discussed her grieving process while appearing on the "Tony & Dwight" on NewsRadio 840 WHAS this morning (Friday, March 5). She said (hear audio below):

    "I'm doing the best I can. I have okay days; I have sad, bad days; but you just have to kind of keep moving. And the things that I post [on social media] as inspiration for other people, I actually post for myself as well to kind of keep going, keep moving forward.

    My dance partner also had two losses almost at the same time — his dad, and then his sister's boyfriend. So we kind of support each other in our loss and our grief. And it helps — it definitely helps. And then, obviously, my family members and friends — close friends. I do the best I can. It's not so easy, though."

    Last November, Janie said that she would "finally" begin a therapy regimen to provide her with the "emotional support and help" she needed.

    Eddie died in October at the age of 65. The legendary VAN HALEN guitarist passed away at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California. Janie was by his side, along with his son, Wolfgang, and Alex, Eddie's brother and VAN HALEN drummer.


    The following day, Janie took to her social media to write: "My husband, my love, my Peep,

    "My heart and soul have been shattered into a million pieces.

    "I never knew it was possible to cry so many tears or feel such incredible sadness.

    "Our journey together has not always been an easy one but in the end and always we have a connection and love that will always be.

    "Saying goodbye is the hardest thing I have ever had to do so instead I say so long, I will see you again soon in a place with no pain or sorrow.

    "Please watch over Kody and I. We love you and miss you so very much.

    "Love, your PooPee".

    Prior to tying the knot with Liszewski in 2009, Eddie was married for more than two decades to actress Valerie Bertinelli.

    Janie is also a stuntwoman-turned-publicist who owns her own public relations agency High Profile Media.

    Eddie died from complications due to cancer, his son confirmed.

    The guitarist was diagnosed with mouth cancer in 2000 and had tongue surgery. He later battled lung cancer and had been receiving radiation treatment in Germany. Things took a turn for the worse in early 2019 when Eddie got in a motorcycle accident. He was subsequently diagnosed with a brain tumor, and received gamma knife radiosurgery to treat the illness.

    The photo that goes with that article is heartbreaking. It was apparently taken on his last birthday in 2020 and you can see on his face the ravages of what he's been going through.

    God damn.

    It’s still surreal to read that.

    Still hard to think about Eddie never entering 5150 again. Ever.
    A lot of Elvis fans had said they couldnt grip that he would never roam Graceland again. But, at least, Elvis is still at Graceland. It's unreal to think of Eddie being not only gone in death, but cremated and spread in the ocean. Thoroughly gone. I hate to sound morbid, but it's a fact we hate to think about. I have thought about the family being on a boat and Wolf probably being the one to carry that out. I imagine that was beyond heart wrenching.
    June. 1984. Kemper Arena. Kansas City, Mo. My very first concert. The lights go out. The spotlights rotate over the crowd while a wailing guitar overtakes the screams and cheers. The opening riff of "Unchained" begins as a lone spotlight illuminates Eddie Van Halen. By himself. I was never the same after that.

    For me, no concert was equal to a Van Halen concert. A VH show was a special experience. The anticipation alone, was unmatched.
    It's sad to think I'll never reach that level of excitement for a concert again. So, in that regard, I can understand what Wray is saying.

    However, after this lockdown crap, I can't wait to see a concert again. It almost doesn't matter who it is, at this point. lol
    But, I'm thinking and hoping it'll be Wolfgang's Mammoth.

    I’m looking forward to going to concerts again. Covid derailed an epic 2020 Concert Season for the wife and I. I’m straining to remember the last show I saw.

    5 months. The Links sure feels different with him gone. Being a VH fan feels different too. I remember feeling sorry for hardcore Rush fans with Peart dying. We are in the same boat now.
    Right Now you're reading my post!
