An official description of the show promises, “If caught early Eddie’s disease had reasonable survival rates, so what exactly happened? Now renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter will analyze every detail of his life in order to piece together what else may have been going on in his body, ultimately leading to his untimely death.”

The announcement noted “a darker undercurrent that would plague Eddie throughout his life” and focuses on his stints in rehab as well as alleged workaholism.

Reelz Channel responded with a statement, saying, “‘Autopsy: The Last Hours of…’ responsibly explores the circumstances of the passing of well known and genuinely loved celebrities who the public cares about immensely,” they began.

“The Reelz series generates much feedback from our viewers ranging from medical professionals who praise its scientific accuracy, fans who tell us it provides closure or that they have become more proactive for the benefit of their health and many who gain helpful perspective of health issues that might not otherwise receive attention like Karen Carpenter who brought anorexia into the public consciousness, Prince whose passing focused attention on the opioid epidemic, and Luke Perry, whose passing renewed attention to strokes that affect people of all ages.”

Wolfgang Van Halen has been busy as a solo artist.

Back in 2021, he released an album, “Mammoth WVH,” that included the song “Distance,” a tribute to his late father. The song was nominated for a 2022 Grammy for best rock song, with the younger Van Halen competing against Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Weezer and Kings of Leon.
