Van Halen chooses rehab over tour
Those who were holding on to hope that the much anticipated Van Halen tour is just days away, give it up.
Eddie Van Halen has checked himself into rehab. He released this statement:
"I would like Van Halen fans to know how much I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Without you there is no Van Halen.
I have always and will always feel a responsibility to give you my best. At the moment I do not feel that I can give you my best. That's why I have decided to enter a rehabilitation facility to work on myself, so that in the future I can deliver the 110% that I feel I owe you and want to give you.
Some of the issues surrounding the 2007 Van Halen tour are within my ability to change and some are not. As far as my rehab is concerned, it is within my ability to change and change for the better. I want you to know that is exactly what I'm doing, so that I may continue to give you the very best I am capable of.
I look forward to seeing you in the future better than ever and
I thank you with all my heart. Love, Ed"
TMZ reports that Eddie won't be skipping out for shopping, lattes or even yoga like teen queen rehab superstars Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.
