Van Halen Cures Cancer

09/12/06
.
(KNAC) Eddie Van Halen called in to Howard Stern's program on the Sirius satellite radio service on Friday (September 8th), and he dropped a couple of major bombshells. After saying he was free of the cancer that led to tongue surgery a few years ago, the guitarist said that he and a partner had developed a treatment that cured his cancer, though he wouldn't reveal what it contains. As for how he got cancer in the first place, Van Halen denied it was from smoking, which he has never stopped, and he claimed the disease might have come from the metal guitar pick he used.

On a different topic, Van Halen made the slightly less amazing announcement that a reunion with original lead singer David Lee Roth isn't out of the question[see full story for more] - Click here for the Full Story
