frankm: I wonder if that’s the reasons shows were cancelled. I hope he recovers quickly and is feeling better soon.

May be..

Could be why the shows were first postponed and then canceled. His condition apparently got worse.

I don’t know . . . I would think if it was bothering him that bad by the time they announced the postponed dates in mid-May, the break would have started a lot sooner than late-June.

On the other hand . . . maybe it was only bothering him a little bit at first . . . and he just made a really smart call.

Or maybe he had no symptoms whatsoever – and it was all because Dave’s voice was starting to sound so rough.

Or maybe . . . Dave’s voice got to sounding so rough . . . it exacerbated Ed’s diverticulitis . . . and the whole thing was a conspiracy to cover up bad blood brewing in the band . . . and Ed is not recovering at home . . . he’s down in Cabo . . . sitting across the street from the Cabo Wabo . . . pissed off at life . . . drinking a warm Diet Coke . . . watching Wolf shagging some hot little Mexican cooter . . . puffing away on an e-cig . . . and he’s asking himself . . . what the fuck just happened Janie??

I hope he’s not watching Wolf get it on… that would be a bit creepy. :wink:

Eddie Van Halen’s Terrifying Brush With Death After His Gut Exploded
Posted on Sep 05, 2012 @ 04:30AM
By Radar Staff

Rock star Eddie Van Halen was on the brink of death recently when doctors battled to save him after his intestines “exploded,” the new issue of the National Enquirer exclusively reveals.

The 57-year-old guitarist was clinging to life when he was rushed to the hospital in excruciating pain after swallowing a cayenne-based diet concoction, revealed an insider.

Eddie’s wife Janie Liszewski, his son Wolf, 21, and ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli all feared the worst. “Janie was beside him the whole time and Wolf kept a constant vigil,” said a source. “They were sick with worry because he was in so much pain, it really was touch and go.

“Valerie was scared to death Eddie was going to die. Although he’s remarried, Eddie is still close to Valerie, and she was there for him the whole time.”

The cause of his pain was reportedly the Master Cleanse Diet, which the musician had tried because it is supposed to rid toxins from the body but it had disastrous effects. “Eddie’s abdominal region was a disaster area,” disclosed a pal. “The spicy treatment touched off an explosion in his intestines.”

The controversial diet is an extreme regimen that temporarily replaces food with a liquid consisting of water, fresh lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. It promises to bring about a rapid slim down but the lack of nutrition and high spice levels cause concern among health professionals.

“The stress of fad diets increases pressure on the colon, and if the person has diverticulitis there may be leakage from the bowel into the abdomen,” explained Dr. James O’Brien, who has not treated the rocker.

Fortunately for Eddie, he has overcome the health crisis, and his people say: “No further surgeries are needed.”

For the full story, the new issue of the National Enquirer is on newsstands Thursday.

I thought the same thing. Seems that it’s true. Personally, I believe everything I read in the Enquirer.
