More photos have surfaced of VAN HALEN guitarist Eddie Van Halen arriving for the 14th annual Elton John Academy Awards viewing dinner and after-party in West Hollywood, California on Sunday, March 5. Check out pictures from Getty Images:
Eddie Van Halen's wife, Valerie Bertinelli, recently filed for divorce after 24 years of marriage. The couple wed on April 11, 1981, and have one son, 14-year-old Wolfgang Van Halen. According to the divorce petition filed by Bertinelli, they separated on Oct. 15, 2001.
Van Halen, 50, is one of the most celebrated lead guitarists in rock music. He rose to fame in the late 1970s, along with his brother, drummer Alex Van Halen, vocalist David Lee Roth and bassist Michael Anthony as members of VAN HALEN.
The group was known for wild excess both on and offstage in its early years, and Van Halen, once a heavy smoker, was treated for cancer in 2000 and 2001.
