EDDIE VAN HALEN's Los Angeles home was hit by a mudslide on Monday morning (10Dec07) after a water main broke just outside the property. The incident occurred in the early hours of Monday, with the burst pipe sending mud and debris into the rocker's front yard and into his swimming pool. But the Hollywood mansion was saved from serious damage, after firefighters placed sandbags around the main building to stem the flow of the water. The 52-year-old rocker - currently on tour with the reunited Van Halen - was alerted to the destruction by his girlfriend Janie Liszewski, who was not at home at the time of the incident.
