    Metal picks, smoking, whatever... Cancer is the fu@$ing devil man. Too many good people die because of it. Yet a-holes like Charles Manson die of old age in a taxpayer funded cushy prison. I don’t get it.

    I pray EVH gets well.

    Cancer is something that is alarming and turns survivors around.

    Be well Eddie.

    When you hear it and survive it, your whole mindset changes.

    When I went through chemo, I sat next to a 23 year old girl that has colon cancer.

    When I heard of her ailment, I couldn't look at her.

    I said to myself that it isn't right.

    At this point I’m pretty sure Eddies camp would have said something by now if the rumors weren’t true. I think they’re just keeping quiet and hoping for the best right now.

    That sucks for Eddie...he's to young to lose. He completely changed guitar like Hendrix did before him. I hope he recovers and lives to an old age. He was huge in my life time, like Rush....He's one of the reasons why I play guitar...and of course I am speaking for millions of people whom feel the same way.

    Cancer is a bitch...I constantly battle skin cancer... Have had it three times since 2000. Blond hair and light green eyes have no place sun bathing.... in which I did ALL THE TIME during my intense chasing the trim years...

    Cancer unfortunately is sort of genetic thing. Something happens in where your own body replaces dead tissue cells with mutated, defective ones... The only way I believe it can be cured is at the genetic level. Unfortunately 'treating cancer' is a multi-billion dollar industry and to many people hugely profit from it. Just another paradox in this fucked up existence were forced to endure. None of it makes any sense. Cancer will most likely kill me in the end unless I get blown away on a motorcycle first! lol
