Eddie Van Halen has entered an undisclosed rehab clinic for undisclosed reasons. He issued this statement yesterday to TMZ:
I would like Van Halen fans to know how much I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Without you there is no Van Halen.
I have always and will always feel a responsibility to give you my best. At the moment I do not feel that I can give you my best. That’s why I have decided to enter a rehabilitation facility to work on myself, so that in the future I can deliver the 110% that I feel I owe you and want to give you.
Some of the issues surrounding the 2007 Van Halen tour are within my ability to change and some are not. As far as my rehab is concerned, it is within my ability to change and change for the better. I want you to know that is exactly what I’m doing, so that I may continue to give you the very best I am capable of.
I look forward to seeing you in the future better than ever and I thank you with all my heart.
Eddie’s rehab stint will most likely kill the planned Van Halen reunion tour which was already having problems. Eddie was due to join his former bandmates in New York on Monday for induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I really hope Eddie’s at Promises, because Brit Brit needs a little Gollum dick. He totally looks like Gollum. Imagine him pounding over you…ok don’t…that’s enough to put you in Promises.
