Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen has reportedly been battle throat cancer once again. Van Halen was originally diagnosed in 2000, given the all-clear in 2002, and has recently been flying back and forth between the U.S. and Germany to once again undergo treatment. This situation has not yet been confirmed or denied by Eddie or his management, but in a recent interview, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather said about Van Halen "I think they're on a hiatus. There's been some health issues that they're dealing with and stuff like that."

Now in a new Instagram post found by Blabbermouth from Sue Dion, a receptionist at exotic and high-end automobile dealership O'Gara Group in Beverly Hills, CA, Eddie has surfaced. No word on his health or anything, but he looks pretty good!

"I've had a bad week, so please indulge me in this gushing post.

"I love my job. I love the cars, I love my co-workers and I love the clients. Admittedly, I've had more than my share of cool things that I've done in my life.

"Co-worker: 'Sue, today you got to make out with a rockstar.' Yes… I…did!

"Today will forever be the day I kissed… Eddie Van Halen!!

"My mom wouldn't let me go see them when I was 14, so it only took 35 years for the universe to right that wrong.

"Absolutely the sweetest guy–still with that twinkle in his eye. I told him that today he made me the coolest kid in high school. Never in my… wildest… dreams.

"Eddie, you have no idea how much you made my day. Thank you for just being you."

In an interview with WRIF "Meltdown" in September, Van Halen vocalist David Lee Roth said "I think Van Halen's finished and this is the next phase" in reference to his Las Vegas residency. Roth added "I've inherited the band de facto — whatever that means. I think it means if you inherit it, carry this proudly. Van Halen isn't gonna be coming back in the fashion that you know. And that being said, Eddie's [Van Halen] got his own story to tell. [It's] not mine to tell it."

We wish Eddie all the best in whatever might be going on in his life.
