    oh my. The part with Mike having Sam's number tattooed on his arm ALWAYS makes me chuckle. That is one funny book.

    LOL! Fucking CLASSIC! That really is some funny stuff, lance. And that would be just too damn predictable if "the band" (in other words Eddie & Alex) really was pissed about this. I love it! How absolutely pathetic if that actually is true. If it is, the only reason would be that all those comics do is paint a true and acurate picture of all the band members, which is the main reason they're so funny! Sorry Ed, but the truth hurts, and you bring it all on yourself.

    And yes lance, definitely post those e-mail exchanges with Brad if you can. That would be a riot! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    How could this be? Lance and Garth were posting stuff from the book all over the Pleasure Dome when it first came out and they were never reprimanded. I once pointed out that the book was indeed bashing the band, not that I didn't agree with the book or laugh heartily at it -- I did and still do because VH brought that kind of satire on themselves, however, Brad never scolded Lance or Garth for "bashing band members past and present is against policy".

    I'm interested now to hear whether they are indeed pissed at the publication of this book. Seeing as though it falls under satire, I don't think there is anything legally they can do to stop its publication and sale.

    </font>[/QUOTE]I don't think Brad would "publicly" say the things that Lance has hinted at. But I'm sure he said something that we'll get a laugh over!

    Lance said he kept all the emails and that they were funny(if you're on OUR side of the fence that is!)

    Brad did, in fact, send me several messages stating his displeasure with the way the band was represented in the book. And although I have completely lost all respect for him following his latest public relations snafu, I don't think I should post his e-mails on this or any other message board. I'm sure he didn't intend for his e-mails to be viewed publicly and I, at the very least, have to respect his wishes.

    However, the essence of his comments was that the book was too harsh on the band and that Van Halen fans would not find it funny. He also suggested that the humor was cruel and hit "below the belt".

    While I completely disagreed with Brad's stance, his communications were always polite. Had they been otherwise, I might be tempted to post them.

    There was one issue, however, that still bothers me. Brad requested several copies of the book to give to the band members. He promised to contact me and let me know what the response was. He never did. Ah well, I guess he was too busy creating new content for VH's official web site (insert rim shot here).

    For those that read a recent rant of mine in which I promised to supply the Bradman transcripts "upon request" - I apologize. I was lit to the gills on cheap gin when I wrote that typo-laden diatribe. Brad may be a chump but I still feel obligated to keep private communications private. I hope ya'll understand.
