More details are coming out about Sammy Hagar’s autobiography, Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock, which hits shelves next week.  According to Blabbermouth.net, in the book, Hagar says that Eddie Van Halen is a “fruitcake,” explaining that Eddie claimed to have cured himself of cancer by “having pieces of his tongue liquefied and injected into his body.” Read more when the book comes out on Tuesday.

  • Sammy writes that Van Halen also told him when he had his hip replaced, he stayed awake through the operation and helped the doctors drill a hole.
  • Hagar said that when he visited Eddie in 2004, the guitarist’s house looked “like vampires lived there” and had “spider webs everywhere.”
