This tour was supposed to last a few years and with the band getting tired out and now Eddie Van Halen's emergency surgery, it now appears it really will last a few years.

Eddie Van Halen had successful emergency surgery for a severe bout of diverticulitis. That is quite painful.


There is no further surgery needed but Eddie will be recovering for the next 4-6 months.

The Japanese leg of the tour will now take place in 2013.

We wish Eddie and speedy recovery.  We hope the pain subsides soon.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Below is video from the rehearsal show at The Forum earlier this year.

Dave Grohl is showing that it is really great to be on a tour with him. Their opening act's drummer had surgery but instead of replacing the band, Dave Grohl has stepped in as the band's drummer.

Cage The Elephant's drummer Jared Champion had his appendix burst on Monday and is still recovering. Enter Dave Grohl, the Foo Fighters frontman, and in case you didn't know, the drummer for a little band named Nirvana.

The Foo Fighters are playing the Forum tonight so you might want to get there early to check out Cage The Elephant with Dave on drums.

If someone from the Foo's is reading this, would love to interview Dave about something that should have happened at the Forum earlier this year and to catch Friday's show to cover for the site.  Just putting it out there.

Check out Dave as the drummer for Cage The Elephant below.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Dave Has A Stairway To Heaven...For Sure...

Bret Michaels is scheduled to have open heart surgery today in Arizona.  Michaels knew last year he was to have this surgery after all of the health problems he had.

Bret is scheduled to marry his longtime girlfriend who is also the mother to his child.  Despite all the "Rock Of Love's" it was down to the one he had from the start.

We wish Bret luck on his surgery and a swift recovery.-Dr.FB

Video: Drake Takes A Fall

Drake, who already was told by doctor's not to perform as he messed up his ACL, fell on it on Friday, around the 30 second mark of the clip.  Drake will be leaving the America's Most Wanted tour and will be having surgery on it this week.

Guess he needed that wheelchair before after all.-Dr.FB

TV host and cooking guru Rachel Ray has gone under the knife. Ray underwent the procedure last week. According to Ray's rep, Charlie Dougiello, "Rachael decided to have a benign cyst removed from her vocal cord."
Thank goodness she finalLy decided to take care of this. I was seriously unable to watch her shows.  Her dull humor and the sound of her voice gave me  headaches.  I can only put up with one or the other when it comes to this woman.
Not even the pic below would get me to watch her if she continued to 'bless' me with that awful voice.
Is this really necessary for Rachel Ray? Does she really have to take half of her clothes off  and pose for us? She's a multi-millionare.....
