The well-known guitarist of Toto, Steve Lukather was the recent interview guest of Eddie Trunk’s podcast and revealed never-told-before truths about Van Halen’s current situation.

According to Steve, Van Halen is struggling with real health issues nowadays.

Here is his statement:

“I love Ed and Alex [Van Halen]; they’ve been friends of mine for 40 years. I’m still friends with Mike [Anthony]. I love all those guys. I’m Switzerland, man. I don’t get in the middle of all that.

I look you right in the eye and say, listen, I’ve been in contact with Ed. We text all the time. I really can’t say much, man. I don’t wanna say anything.

Everybody wants Van Halen back — nobody more than me, ’cause I still think they’re one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. Eddie changed the planet [with his guitar playing].

Him and Alex are sitting there laying back and they’re waiting to see what happens next. I think they’re on a hiatus. There’s been some health issues that they’re dealing with and stuff like that. We’re older guys now, and to go on the road, and stuff like that, it requires a lot of extra effort in terms of as a human being.”

He continued:

“All I’m gonna say is I don’t think there’s any drama issues that are keeping them from working right now. I’m not the guy to say anything. I love those brothers so much and we’ve always had a great relationship. I’m a big fan and also adore them as human beings.”
