Van Halen tries to wean himself off reunion plans

Eddie Van Halen has gone into rehab - not, you'll understand, for himself. But for all of us:

In a statement addressed to fans Thursday on Van Halen's Web site, the guitarist said he decided to seek treatment because "at the moment I do not feel that I can give you my best."

"That's why I have decided to enter a rehabilitation facility to work on myself, so that in the future I can deliver the 110 percent that I feel I owe you and want to give you."

Since Van Halen have been churning out less than forty per cent - on a good day - since about 1984, that's going to be quite a long time he'll be in there.

Victoria Newton hasn't published a card for us to send him, yet.
