Ex-Van Halen member Sammy Hagar had a recent podcast interview and revealed the interesting times Eddie Van Halen had after his cancer operation.
Hagar stated that after his hard cancer operation, doctor was tightenin Eddie up and Hagar thought that he couldn’t be around a guy like this.
Here is what he said (Transcribed by Alternative Nation):
“I talked about it in my book and I swore I never do it again because it’s almost like, you know, the boys club. I threw him under the bus but I threw myself under with him. I didn’t say: ‘Hey, he was doing cocaine, we were doing cocaine.’
Eddie was drinking a fucking case of Smoking Loon red wine a day out of the bottle. All his teeth were gone because he had all the radiation and he had to take all the fillings and everything out. Eddie had about four teeth hanging in there, they were black and he wore a big overcoat filled with drugs and a couple of bottles [of wine] just to walk to the hotel room to the car.
You know, he was just crazy. He was turning over tables, he was fucking kicking windshields out of every car we got in. We got in a G5 at forty-five thousand feet and he’s got a red wine bottle, empty. A rented G5 and bangin’ the f**ing’ window with the bottle, blasting red wine all over the nice white suits because he was so angry that everybody was so down on him because he couldn’t play since he was so wasted all the time.
It was just horrible, I just hated to see him like that and I never spoke to him since then.”
