Eddie Van Halen health rumors have circulated in recent months, with reports that he is suffering from throat cancer, and now according to David Lee Roth in a new Las Vegas Review Journal interview, Eddie really is not doing well. Eddie Van Halen’s son recently posted a photo where they look like women.
“Ed (Van Halen)’s not doing well, and singing and dancing is a perishable skill,” Roth says, discussing his Las Vegas residency. “If you have the capacity, it’s something that has to be used routinely, if not for the thrill of it and the magic of creating with other incandescent spirits.”
StardustFallout wrote about working with David Lee Roth on his new run of Vegas shows on Facebook.
“I am beyond cloud 9 right now! There are moments in my career that really make me sit back and say damn I am lucky and tonight is one of my TOP 5! I got to do some video work with Mr. Panama @davidleeroth at @hoblasvegas Thank you @prpluslv thank you! #stardustfallout www.stardustfallout.com. #rock #music #rockstar #rockband #rocker #rockers #rocknroll #rockout #rocking #rocket #rockin.”
Eddie Van Halen’s wife revealed the ‘saddest’ news last week. EJC said on VHLinks.com, “Dave looks good and ready to go. Also looks like it’s the same bass player from over the summer (based on the rig) – so we just don’t know who the drummer is yet (assuming guitar is Estrada and other guy).”
KS5150 wrote, “I just rediscovered Skyscraper this past weekend…Hina is a killer tune Also dig Perfect Timing.”
DressedInRags chimed in, “Agree that it would be an excellent chance for Dave to mix it up a bit. Unfortunately, fans should probably prepare for a Panama, HFT, Jaime’s, Runnin’, Jump spin cycle…over and over and over. I hope he’s right that this band will have a different take on the VH standards…”
JustDave commented, “Dave & I are going this weekend and also seeing them on the 10th & 11th. We told our podcast listeners that we’re having an informal gathering on Saturday at 1:30pm at Cabo Wabo (yes I know, oh the irony).”
