I've had Diverticulitis and you don't want it. Surgeries can include removing several feet of intestines. I was fortunate it only occurred once & was treated with anti-biotics.

What happened to the greatest guitarist playoff thing? I haven't seen it in the last couple of newsletters. Maybe they decided to just end the thing. It was ridiculous but there was always interesting comments. It was taking forever, a lot longer than the college basketball tournament that inspired it.

Man I will be praying for you bro, I just read about diverticulitis on wikipedia & wow I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy, Don't Give Up & speedy recovery.

One of the greatest bands in history, but also one of the most dysfunctional. I didn't buy tickets for this tour because I knew something would happen to derail it. I had diverticulitis and I only missed a week of work. I think the real deal is Ed needs a Rothectomy.

I heard from an inside source anyways that Dave and Ed were at it again. Besides all real fans knew it was going to blow up, yes we hoped they would keep it together for the sake of music but when you get 2 egomaniacs that dislike each other together on the same tour, something is bound to go wrong. Like always...ohwell.

Hang in there Eddy, I have 3 diverticuli and the secret to staying out of surgery is simple. Don't eat anything with seeds, no popcorn, or burgers with sesame seed buns. These are what get caught in your colon and cause the infection.
You'll be back in no time.

God Bless you Ed. You have influenced more people than you will ever know. The World would be a much bleaker venue had you not played it. Get better soon so you can keep cranking out some of the best rock music written. Like Zeppelin ....Van Halen will stand the test of time and ALWAYS be relevant. Sometimes a musician comes around and lays the World of music out on its a$$. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Beatles, Led Zeppelin and ED VAN HALEN. You took guitar playing to a new level and advanced the art. GET BETTER. Your fans love and appreciate you.
