    You might think that drinking or cigarettes might not be good for the throat either. Thoughts and prayers sent.

    Pretty weak journalism even for TMZ standards.

    Maybe it's true - maybe it's not. I wouldn't use that article to judge it by though.

    Not at all disagreeing with you.

    But it’s Eddie, and it won’t exactly be shocking if this is confirmed, unfortunately.

    That's sucks for him.

    I wonder what he thinks about these days. Would he trade the fame and accolades for redefining rock guitar in return for a healthy life? From what I have read his life was pretty much a s**t show. How happy was he really?

    I guess he won't be a guest on guitar wank anytime soon.

    My heart goes out to him, and I do very much hope he can beat cancer definitively.

    All the news that’s fit to print... :rolleyes:

    Other than being a smoker, I’m not sure what his lifestyle has to do with cancer.

    I heard he blamed his first bout with cancer on his habit of holding his guitar picks in his mouth while tapping.

    Yeah, that’s what did it. Meanwhile his guitars all have headstock cancer.

    Best wishes to the guy. Just recently started listening to old VH again and really appreciating what Ed brought to the world. A legend.

    Hope that's not true.
    If true, prayers to EVH and I hope he beats this.
    I hope Eddie knows how important he's been to so many people and will come out with a statement himself, so those can show their love and support.
