New Eddie Van Halen photo with fan shows him in good shape

After months of speculation about Eddie Van Halen’s health, TMZ reported that he is suffering from throat cancer, and now a fan that works at McLaren’s dealership in Beverly Hills shared a photo with the guitarist that visited the place recently and the photo made fans happy, since it shows the musician in a good shape, showing that he is probably getting better.


The worker said in her post:

“I’ve had a bad week, so please indulge me in this gushing post. I love my job. I love the cars, I love my co-workers and I love the clients. Admittedly, I’ve had more than my share of cool things that I’ve done in my life. Co-worker: “Sue, today you got to make out with a rockstar.” 😅 Yes… I…did! 🤯 Today will forever be the day I kissed… Eddie Van Halen!!! 💋 My mom wouldn’t let me go see them when I was 14, so it only took 35 years for the universe to right that wrong. Absolutely the sweetest guy–still with that twinkle in his eye.❤️ I told him that today he made me the coolest kid in high school. 🤣. Never in my… wildest… dreams. Eddie, you have no idea how much you made my day. Thank you for just being you. 💕”

Health rumours

A few months ago a released photo of Eddie Van Halen has raised many speculations about the state of his health. In the picture, Eddie appears almost unrecognizable. At age 64, the musician appears quite swollen and apparently bald in the image, with a look similar to that of a person undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

Past cancer

By 2000, the guitarist had already been diagnosed with cancer and had to remove 1/3 of his tongue. Now the cancer cells have spread to the throat, and to combat the spread of the disease, the musician conducts radiotherapy sessions.

In 2012, Van Halen was voted the best guitarist of all time by a vote sponsored by Guitar World magazine.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
