    Man, you gotta love Crazy From the Heat, the book. I'm reading it again, probably for the 10th time or so. And everytime I read it I can pick out more and more tall tales that Dave is telling.

    For instance, Dave tells the story about wearing the sunglasses when he made the California girls video, and how it affected the colors in the final video. Well, I have an interview on tape of Dave telling the identical story, with the identical details, but this time he says it was the Jump video.

    Great stuff.

    Wazzup fellas, hey I was wondering if there were any published pages of that book on the net anywere. Reason being everytime I go to buy the damn book I have to wait 6-8 weeks for it to ship so I don't bother with it. Can you guys help a poor brotha out?

    I don't know of anywhere on the net where there's sections of the book, except that there is a couple of Dave poems in the book that are quoted (or at least used to be) at the Army.

    Eyes, put the book on order, you won't regret it when you finally get it in your hands.

    "Crazy From The Heat" is my Bible, man. I read that thing at least 6 times during the second semester of Junior year. I know it cover to cover.

    That story about the color correction in the video: I'd believe "California Girls" over "Jump". Has more colors.

    I like the Road Work tales m'self. Makes me want to sign up at the door to work Enuff Z'Nuff!

    Hey Glenn...
    I beleive that Dave puts a disclaimer in there at the end of the book. He says something to the effect of... The events and the time-table in which they happened may be a little different. Its just how he remembered them at the time that he wrote it! LOL!!

    Only Dave would have a disclaimer in his autobiography. Great book, a must read for any VH fan.

    I'm gonna try to grab a copy of CFTH from vanhalenstore.com, but it's almost 30 bucks. I just wanna know if it's worth that much money. Dave is a good laugh, but is a book worth that much? thanx.

    That book at the VH Store is the hardback. I only have the paperback, and the only difference is that it has fewer pictures than the hardcover edition. I got the paperback for around 8 bucks, whereas if I ordered that one off of the VH Store, the exchange here to Canada would end up costing me probably 50 bucks.

    It's a great book if you're a DLR fan. It really gives off the attitude that Dave lives for his art.

    I'd definitely check it out one way or another; borrow it, take it out of the library, buy the paperback, the hardback, whatever.

    You should be able to get it cheaper than that. Just check around at bookstores. Most should have it. I got mine for like $22, when it first came out. Borders probably has it for like $16 or $18 now.

    I was gonna get it from half.com like someone suggested, but you have to have a friggin' credit card. I don't have one and I wouldn't put one on the net anyway.
