Eddie Van Halen Undergoes Surgery

(MusicRadar) Eddie Van Halen is recovering from hand surgery that was deemed necessary to alleviate increasing pain in his left hand. According to Rolling Stone, the guitarist says he began to experience pain in his thumb and pinky during the last portion of Van Halen's 2007-2008 tour.

"It got progressively worse to the point that about three months ago I wasn't able to play at all," says Van Halen. "My pinky and my thumb were totally locked up and felt like there was something broken."

Although specialists in Germany initially treated Van Halen for arthritis, they soon found the real problems: a bone spur, twisted tendon and a cyst in the joint of his left thumb. - more on this story
