    Default VH book

    Hello,

    I released a book a few months ago on Amazon. After listing the book at one price, Amazon jacked up the price a lot. The have finally reduced the price. Please consider adding to your collection.

    http://www.amazon.com/Van-Halen-Musi...166619-8084710

    Thanks

    It looks like a good book. This topic should be in Main Van Halen discussion, so I will move it there.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Hey Doc... a lot of us have read everything written about this band. Before I invest anything more how about an excerpt to give us a flavor on the content?

    Yeah....thing is, while it's fine for fans or unauthorized biographers to offer their takes on this band, most of the time they end up being rehashes of the VH Encyclopedia or fanboy tributes. Really the only books I'd ever take seriously about Van Halen would have to be penned by a member of the band, or somebody like Ted Templeman.

    It's why Dave's book is the only one out there worth a damn, IMO.

    Apparently this book is a University Textbook, that's why it's so expensive. The author's a university professor. I'm sure this PhD dude did better than friggin Mick Wall. Taking a Van Halen "class"... one can only dream.

    Yeah, and in a Van Halen "class", our homework was never quite like this either. It'd be a good class. Might not have dropped out of college after 2 years to become a road worker if they would've had Van Halen to major in!
