Eddie Van Halen Melts Down, Goes To Rehab - Tour Officially Off

I'm sure some of you regular VegasTripping readers continue to scratch your heads and wonder... why do they keep posting Van Halen stories to VT? Well, the answer is simple. Watching the Van Halen house of cards implode into its already imploding self on a weekly basis is fascinating stuff. Plus, everyone loves the original Van Halen line up.

Apparently Eddie has seen the writing on the wall or looked in the mirror or finally decided to wake up. He's announced on the Van Halen website that he's going to rehab - presumably to kick the booze. At least long enough to get the Van Halen reunion tour to be come a viable option.

I would like Van Halen fans to know how much I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Without you there is no Van Halen.

I have always and will always feel a responsibility to give you my best. At the moment I do not feel that I can give you my best. Thatís why I have decided to enter a rehabilitation facility to work on myself, so that in the future I can deliver the 110% that I feel I owe you and want to give you.

Some of the issues surrounding the 2007 Van Halen tour are within my ability to change and some are not. As far as my rehab is concerned, it is within my ability to change and change for the better. I want you to know that is exactly what Iím doing, so that I may continue to give you the very best I am capable of.

I look forward to seeing you in the future better than ever and I thank you with all my heart.



David Lee Roth made some comments to the Los Angeles Times recently as well...

"Ed is indisposed and working toward a better future here," Roth said. "If Ed ever dries up, this is going to be a stadium act, man.... What's happening here with this [Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction] is part and parcel of the same spiral that screwed up the tour."

The man who was once the motormouth suddenly sounds like a well adjusted adult. Way to go Dave.



Comments & Discussion:

I always thought David Lee Roth was the sane one, I don't care what people have said about him. Eddie ruined his marriage and his band with his personal problems that have festered for years.

I don't think Van Halen will ever regroup in the manner that we want. I remember in 1996 when it was announced that KISS was getting back together there was also big rumours that VH was heading out.What we got that disastrous reunion on the MTV awards. I have little faith in the brothers VH.

At least I have The Police tour!
