I got an email from Eddie Van Halen today!

Is Van Halen, The Band, Still Alive?
Even though they have no recording contract it looks as if we haven’t heard the last from Van Halen. Eddie sent me a message in an email this morning:
Message From Eddie
I know I promised I’d get back to you and I’m sorry for the delay but I wanted to let you all know that I’ve just gotten a 100% clean bill of health – from head to toe. I wanted to share the good news with you immediately. And of course, I thank you all for all your good wishes and prayers along the way. Now it’s time to really get back to the music and fun… party on and you’ll be hearing from us very soon.
All my love,
Of course, he also posted the same message on his website, so perhaps it wasn’t intended specifically for me. But I’m saving it anyway!
Either way, I wait with baited breath for the return of Van Halen. Join me, won’t you?
