River Wide at Van Halen's House

12/10/2007 11:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A water main broke in an L.A. suburb early this morning, sending thousands of gallons of water through the yard of a home believed to belong to music legend Eddie Van Halen. Look out below!


The gushing water snarled traffic this morning in the area around Coldwater Canyon. L.A. Fire officials said the only home affected was Van Halen's, who is currently out of town on tour.

An LAFD battalion chief said firefighters placed sandbags around the home, trying to prevent water from entering the house itself, but mud and debris filled the pool. Luckily it looks like there was no damage to his house.

That is called Karma for booting Michael Anthony from the tour. I would not pay to see them--they are NOT the original line up. Just because you have a son with the last name Van Halen, does not mean he is an accepted part of the band. Grow up Eddie and Alex. You are NOT all that.

This is not a recent photo. Eddie has new teeth, short hair and does look better. Unfortunately, nothing could be done with his personality. and he remains a self-absorbed, spiteful little jerk.

Wasn't this Valerie Bertinellias x husband? She is divorced from him now. She is the new Jennie Craig girl who lost the weight. She is a doll, glad she dumped him. I can never see what she saw in him anyway.

Old picture. Eddie is way healthier now. Mike didn't want to do the tour w/ VH because he has positioned himself solidly in the Sammy Hagar camp. Eddie's son on bass is a perfect fit and if anything makes the band MORE Van Halen. Mike's bass parts could be covered by trained monkeys for the most part anyways.

Ok could you have an older picture? I just saw them in Sacramento, and it was one of the greatest shows I have even seen. Someone nees to get the kid on the treadmill though. About four songs in the poor kid was soaked in sweat. They were in great form though, and Dave at 53 is in the best shape of his life. I do agree it's not the same without Michael Anthony. He was really missed, and Eddie and Alex are the biggest babies when it comes to holding a grudge. Lets face it, without Dave they would have been the greatest garage band ever, but it's because of Dave that they made it big. There are lots of great guitar players in the world, but he is a true showman. I was surprised to see Eddie smiking at the show, didn't he have all kinds of cancer? Really smart to keep smoking.
