    YIKES! That has got to be fake.

  3. You know, it's really sad. By 1995 or so EVH had cut back his drinking, gotten a haircut, grown a beard, and just in general decided to look like an adult...and then, almost in the blink of an eye, he was back trying to look like it was 1979 again. Sad.

    Assuming that it's really him, I feel so sad. To me EVH is a TRUE GENIUS, the guitarist I admire the most, and it makes me feel a mix of anger and sadness to see how such a high-level mind can't take care of his own life. :(

    I wonder who that skeezer is with him. I thought he was married to Valerie Bert-something.

  6. Valerie Bertinelli dumped his drunken ass a few years back.

    Valerie Bertinelli, but they got divorced almost four years ago.

    Hey, for a guy who looks like that, she's a regular Sandra Bullock.

    Isn't that the chick from the Ali G Movie? She looks familure.

    The dude is a brilliant guitarist and seeing the Van Halen band in 1982 inspired me to play music...This is very sad.

  13. Hahaha, I found that part funny.
    But seriously, that is depressing. It's almost like a sign saying "SEE? This is why so many great musicians dye so young!".
    It's sad, but you have to wonder what would've happened to a lot of the hard-living rockers who died years ago had they survived this long.
