    I want to like like this comment for the wit, but it feels wrong considering people are discussing his health.

    I try to ignore click baits, but also believe where there’s a lot of smoke, there must be fire. One thing is for sure, all the hand wringing in the world won’t change things. I hope he’s ok.

    A lot of these "rumors" about famous people get started by unscrupulous tabloid journalists. They get paid to find gossip and print it.
    Sometimes they are just shaking the bushes, trying to see what falls out.
    They start by posting things on various websites that are unverifiable and might be true based on the celebrities past. They do this anonymously, using some bogus poster id they've created. Then, if someone posts a response saying they heard a different story, or they know for a fact that it's true, then the "journalist" now has a "verifiable source" and can actually print a story on whatever garbage media site they write for.
    This lessens the chance the media site will get sued.

    Because the internet is now the new place for "accident scene lookie-loos" to hunt for excitement, these type of "journalists" actually have followings. Apparently, there's gold in gossip journalism.

    File Eddie under the gigantic heading of musicians/rock stars who chronologically may be a certain age, but biologically , due to certain lifestyle choices over the years, they have to be far older.

    Meaning : Your 64 and my 64 are a lot different than Eddie’s 64...

    Hope he's OK!
    Can't find recent reference after DLR commenting about being the face of Van Halen now.

    Nice to see Eddie and his wife enjoying life. Thanks for the video. I saw Van Halen in Greensboro, NC in 1985. Awesome show.

    Be careful using that term. The mods here don't like it.

    Its unfortunate if EVH is indeed battling cancer. It took my Dad two years ago. Eddie deserves privacy. This media BS is likely unwanted by EVH and his family.

    I’ve thought about EVH’s age and health a bit in the past couple of years. He was my guitar hero when I was a young teenager. Back in ‘84 or so I discovered him. He guided me, unknowingly thru my guitar playing for a long time.

    I recently wondered how he was doing. He’s not that old at ‘64. However the rock star life ain’t easy on the human body nor mind. I’ve seen EVH live 3-4 times. I’d sure like to see him pull out of this and play again. I’d certainly go see him again.

    Please, just leave DLR home.
