Eddie Van Halen is resting after unexpectedly undergoing emergency surgery. The Van Halen co-founder had been suffering significant pain lately as a result of Diverticulitis.

Diverticulitis is a condition that occurs when pouches form in the wall of the colon and get inflamed or infected. Symptoms can include stomach pain, fever and chills, bloating, gas, nausea and loss of appetite.

A statement from the band reads:

"Eddie Van Halen underwent an emergency surgery for a severe bout of Diverticulitis. No further surgeries are needed and a full recovery is expected within 4 – 6 months.

"Van Halen's scheduled November 2012 tour of Japan is currently being rescheduled and the band looks forward to seeing and playing for their fans in 2013."

Earlier this year, the group postponed dates amidst rumours of infighting. However, David Lee Roth later stated that it was a case of the group "biting off more than they could chew" and that they needing a break before continuing. Unfortunately, those postponed shows have now had to be cancelled.


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston.
