Eddie Van Halen: New Photo and News

Eddie Van Halen emerges from rehab with a new outlook on life—not to mention a brand-new amp: the EVH 5150 III.

In his first post-rehab interview, presented in the September 2007 issue of Guitar World, Van Halen discusses the new three-channel amp from his EVH brand of guitars, amps and musical products, and thanks his fans for their support during his time in the facility. “Their support has and always will mean the world to me. I want everyone to know that I am truly grateful.”

As you can see in the accompanying photo, Ed looks fitter and happier than he has in years.
