    I read somewhere on this board a while ago that Sammy wrote an autobiography and it had leaked onto the internet. Is this true and if so can someone let me know where I can find a copy of it in digital format?

    Chapters 19 & 20 are the only ones that relate to Van Halen. Production of the book was halted when Sammy took the author to court.

    Wow. The book is very addicting. I'd like to hear Eddie's view on all of these events. If anyone knows where some of the other chapters are I'd love to read them. I have a hard time believing that 19&20 are the only one's related to Van Halen.

    Wow. I had been wondering where those were, awesome read.

    Funny - we have a thread espousing the "fact" that Balance has the best sound quality, and Sammy said it was their worst, it had a bad mix. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    I personally can't see how one guy (Daniels) can be that evil, but who knows. Me thinks Betsy's story may have some merit too. Sammy ain't no saint.

    I wonder if the rest of the book will ever see the light of day?

    I'd also like to hear Ed's take on Chapters 19 and 20.

    I don't think that the situation is as one sided as Sam makes it sound. Surely he is a little to blame for the breakup as well. That being said I think it speak volumes that the band (if there is one) is no longer associated with RD Management. I'd love to read Sam's thoughts on the rest of his time with VH.

    I had read these quite some time ago and found the printout of them a while back and reread them. I think they are really relevant to the status of the band as it now stands. I started a thread in Opinions called "Timing" based on my thoughts after reading these chapters.
