Sammy Hagar: Eddie Van Halen Claims To Have Cancer Cure
Sammy Hagar has spoken in his autobiography of how Eddie Van Halen claimed to have cured himself of cancer.
Talking about meeting up with the guitarist in 2004 to discuss a possible Van Halen reunion, the singer says: “He finally invited me over to this giant, extravagant house that he and Valerie (Bertinelli) had built before she split. It looked like vampires lived there. There were bottles and cans all over the floor. The handle was broken off the refrigerator door. There were spider webs everywhere. . . He told me he cured himself (of cancer) by having pieces of his tongue liquefied and injected into his body. He also told me when he had his hip replacement, he stayed awake through the operation and helped the doctors drill a hole. What a fruitcake.”
The book, Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock, is published on March 15.
