Eddie Van Halen released from hospital after reaction to cancer medication

Eddie Van Halen has been released from hospital after experiencing some complications from medication for his throat cancer, according to a new report by TMZ.

Sources tell TMZ the rocker was admitted to the hospital last week with intestinal issues and abdominal pain as a result of a bad reaction to the drugs he is taking to battle the ongoing health issue; the guitarist was released on November 17 and is reportedly doing fine now.

Van Halen made headlines last month when it was reported that he has been flying to Germany in recent years to receive radiation treatments for cancer, with speculation that this was the reason for the continued hiatus of the band that bears his name, which last toured in 2015.

No official statements have been released regarding Eddie’s health status or Van Halen’s plans moving forward.

Van Halen released a new box set entitled “The Japanese Singles 1978-1984” on November 1; the package collects all 13 7” vinyl singles issued in Japan during the band’s original era, from the group’s 1978 self-titled debut to their sixth album, “1984.”
