A new statement from Ed was posted at Van Halen’s official website today:
“I want to say thank you to all the Van Halen fans for the tons of emails and all the support they provided when I was in rehab earlier this year. It was an intensely personal thing that I’m not really comfortable talking about right now, but I want everyone to know that their support has and always will mean the world to me. I want everyone to know that I am truly grateful.”
And it looks like we’ll be hearing more from Ed soon; his first post-rehab interview will appear in the September 2007 issue of Guitar World magazine, which is due in stores June 26, according to GW’s website.
A blurb about the forthcoming article is posted at the site, along with a cool new photo of Ed.
Also: Photographer Ross Halfin has posted at his website a slew of previously unreleased pictures from a late-2006 photo shoot he did with Eddie.
