Eddie Van Halen Reportedly Hospitalized Following Adverse Reaction to Cancer Treatment


As you are likely aware, Van Halen’s Eddie Van Halen has been fighting throat cancer, reportedly for the past five years. Now, according to TMZ, the legendary guitarist was recently hospitalized due to an adverse reaction to treatment for that malady:

“Sources close to the legendary guitarist tell TMZ … he was admitted to the hospital last week with intestinal issues and abdominal pain. We’re told both were the result of a bad reaction to the drugs Eddie is taking to battle throat cancer.

“He was released Sunday and we’re told he’s doing fine now.”

The report goes on to say that Eddie and his son, Wolfgang Van Halen, “hung out and rehearsed music” after Eddie’s return from the hospital.

Everyone at MetalSucks hopes Eddie is doing better and defeats cancer once and for all sometime soon.
