TMZ has shed more light on Eddie Van Halen's health issues. He's been flying from LA to Germany for the last 5 years getting treatment for throat cancer. This is why they haven't toured. Eddie has blamed his cancer by placing his metal guitar picks in his mouth when he finger picked his guitar. Not sure if that is true or not, but all we can do is pray for the rock icon. Latest reports are saying he is in good condition. Get well Eddie, we love you! David Lee Roth always pays tribute to Eddie's guitar playing. Below is David's latest Instagram post of Edddie from 1979.
