According to ultimateclassicrock.com, Michael Brewer had recently been diagnosed with a terminal case of prostate cancer. Wanting to do something nice for her husband, Julie Brewer, contacted Van Halen's people to see if Eddie would reach out to her husband. Luckily, he agreed to chat with Michael. Brewer has been suffering from ill health since 2013 when he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which later led to him developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). His prostate cancer is very advanced and has now metastasized to his bones. However, he is keen to do as much as he can while he's still able and has managed to tick a few things off his bucket list. In addition to chatting with his hero Eddie Van Halen, Brewer also took a helicopter ride around Cape Fear on New Year's Eve. He hopes to read War and Peace and learn to play guitar in the near future. Find out more about taking prostate health seriously.
