Then and Now- Eddie Van Halen Edward Lodewijk "Eddie" Van Halen (born January 26, 1955), is a Dutch-American guitarist, keyboardist, songwriter and producer, most famous as the lead guitarist and co-founder of the hard rock band Van Halen. Many of us were saddened when Valerie Bertinelli married Eddie Van Halen on April 11, 1981.On July 9, 2002, they announced that they had been separated since October 2001. She filed for divorce on December 5, 2005 which was finalized on December 20, 2007. During the late 1990s Eddie Van Halen was treated twice for tongue and mouth cancer. During an interview with Howard Stern on September 8, 2006, Eddie claimed that holding a metal pick in his mouth 12-14 hours per day while immersed in the electromagnetic radiation of his music studio caused his tongue cancer. He said he continues to smoke because "cigarettes didn't cause the cancer", despite the fact that they could in fact contribute to the cancer's potential for resurgence.

While he is one of the greatest guitarist to ever live, he also had probably the biggest ego to go along with that.

I have seen some real bitter interviews with Eddie talkin' about Dave from years ago. This is what I don't like about the music business. The realities that go with it. It ain't a fantasy.

Wow! I saw him for the first time a few years ago when they toured with Eddies son Wolfgang playing Bass. They Rocked! The fame and fortune some, but not many can handle. During those concerts Valerie ws always there watching out for her boy Wolfgang. She knew how it was. Keith Richards makes him look good.

Eddie looks like crap! He shouldn't smoke at all. I think he supposedly quit drinking.
