Eddie Van Halen has surgery for digestive disease
His representative said Thursday that the guitarist had a “severe bout of diverticulitis,” a painful condition that involves the formation of pouches on the outside of the colon. He is expected to recover in four to six months. The rep added that the 57-year-old will not require more surgeries to treat the disease.
The musician had plans to tour Japan in November and will reschedule the dates for next year.
