Poor Eddie! He's confirmed on the bands webpage (http://www.van-halen.com), that he's got cancer.
"I was examined by three oncologists and three head-and-neck surgeons at Cedars Sinai
(Medical Center in Los Angeles
) just before spring break
, and I was told that I'm healthier than ever and beating cancer,"
"Although it's hard to say when, there's a good chance I will be cancer-free in the near future,"
Unconfirmed reports say the cancer is in his tongue
