    Default Detailed synopsis of new VH book w/tribute to EVH at Steve Lukather's website...

    Well dudes, if you had ANY questions as to whether or not my project was legit (or even truly existed!! haha...) feast your eyes on this. Simply go to:

    www.SteveLukather.net

    Once there, you'll see the "Latest News" and mention of my book staring you right in the face. It reads "Lukather featuring in new Van Halen book." You'll even notice the dude that runs Luke's site (His name is Arend. He's the coolest and he read an advanced copy of my book that I passed along to him and Luke) states that my book sets a "new standard" for writing a book about a rock musician?!?! Damn, I was just hoping he would think it was "cool" and didn't suck!!! haha!!! .

    Anyhow, you'll see where it says, "Read more at the articles section." Well, just click on the word "articles" and you'll see the whole schmear. The most detailed synopsis of my book yet. Perhaps one of ya'll can cut and paste it over here? That would be badass.

    Oh, and I even included a few excerpts of the commentary provided by Zakk Wylde, Allan Holdsworth, Brian May, Ted Nugent, Steve Lukather, and Mark Tremonti. So when you speak of me, speak well...Love ya'll...

    Hey, congradulations(sp). Without a doubt, this thing is a "must own". Truly sounds interesting, from the write-up.

    I wish you as much success as you can handle, and even more after that.

    (And thanks for the link to Luke's site, always wanted to check that place out.)


    Now if the first 100 or so copies included a live DVD from the legendary '81 shows that brought us "Unchained", ect...

    Just kidding, I sincerely hope all goes well for ya, man.

    GOOD JOB !!! - sad but true, that we do not find this information on the official website. But Luke is a great guy and a good friend of Eddie. Someone has to write a book also about his life and work.

    Thx

    Congrats! I can't wait to read it, I am very excited about it- no dirt, just a book praising the man and his band! Maybe Eddie will even get a copy from Lukather, and...he may like it... and maybe you'll get to meet the legend himself!

    I think he really needs it after the VHIII "incident."
    This book would be the ultimate pick-me-up for our Edward.

    16oz you're up there too for your efforts in recognizing our Edward for the King of Six Strings that he is.
