  EDDIE VAN HALEN CHECKS IN WITH HEALTH UPDATE AND MESSAGE FOR FANS
2nd September 2012



eddie van halen



Eddie Van Halen had a health scare last week when he underwent emergency surgery due to a serious flare-up of diverticulitis, a condition impacting the intestine causing it to become infected or inflamed, causing immense pain.

Eddie underwent surgery to have his infected intestine removed which resulted in a three week hospital stay after some of his stitches popped post surgery.

The harrowing news left many Van Halen fans concerned for Eddie and his health, but the guitarist recently checked in to let fans know he's doing okay and appreciates the support. Eddie posted the following message on his Facebook page:

"Thank you for all of your cool comments! Hanging out, taking it easy and following the doctor's orders.

"Doctor's orders include resting and recuperating for up to six months so fans will need to tap into their favorite Van Halen playlists to get their fix as the band will be sidelined for the foreseeable future.

"The surgery resulted in Van Halen having to postpone their upcoming dates in Japan but luckily it appears that Eddie is on the road to recovery and that these dates will be rescheduled at some point.


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
