Eddie’s in rehab


A message appeared on the official Van Halen website from Eddie Van Halen on March 8th, 2007 saying he’s heading into rehab and that some of the problems with the planned reunion tour were of his doing but not all of it was his fault.

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. That’s 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 I’m 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.



There had been questions about the band’s appearance at their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame on March 12th and this looks to have answered some of them.

I do hope this helps sort things out for him and the band as he still remains one of my all time guitar heroes, Ed & Peter Green filling the number one spot.
