Van Halen and Eddie Van Halen have recently set up official Myspace pages. Official Facebook and Twitter pages are coming soon.
Eddie’s first blog message:
Current mood: artistic
This is my first foray on MySpace. Just wanted to say hi and let you know what has been going on in my life lately.
Janie and I had a very special and amazing wedding here at the house with our friends and family. Wolfgang was my best man and Alex married us. Janie’s Pomeranian walked her down the aisle. It was one of the biggest and best moments of our lives.
Our European honeymoon was just as wonderful, it was good to see Amsterdam again. I had hand surgery and arthritis treatment in Germany and recovery is going extremely well.
Alex, Wolfgang and I just started rehearsing up at the studio again. It feels great to play and my hand is getting better every day. I am not entirely up to speed yet, but I am getting there.
I was asked to do a cameo for Two and a Half Men. I typically shy away from these requests as I am not an actor, but Charlie and I are friends and since it was a scene with him, I agreed. Charlie and I had a great time, even though I was very nervous. The cast and crew were a pleasure to work with and helped me feel a little more at ease. I believe this episode airs September 21st.
I have been asked to do an interview and Guitar World cover shoot with Tony Iommi. He is such a great guy and good friend, of course I said YES! I just saw him in LA last week and discussed my medical treatments. He has similar problems with his hand and hopefully he will find the same relief I have found.
Loving life, my son, music and my new wife.
Can’t wait to see you all again soon.
Eddie Van Halen
