Pearl Jam just had to cancel a handful of shows due to an unspecified illness. Well, it turns out Eddie Vedder was one of the people who had it, and it was bad.

Don't Expect Alex Van Halen to Join Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony on Tour 



Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony will honor their work together in Van Halen on the Best of All Worlds Tour, with guitarist Joe Satriani and drummer Jason Bonham.



This would be a great time for Alex Van Halen to step up and join them. But don't get your hopes up.



Sammy and Michael reached out to him multiple times, and got NO RESPONSE.



Sammy says, quote, "We made every offer to get together or to just talk or to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Go to the studio and play. Come to my house or I'll come to your house. Go ride horses, go sit on the beach.



"What do you want to do? Let's just do something. Let's get together. And nothing."

He adds, quote, "He sold all of his equipment. That was his statement. That was like, 'Nah, I ain't coming nowhere.'"



(Yes, Alex did indeed sell what was apparently his entire collection of musical gear.)
