    Neil Zlozower book???

    I happened to go to vanhalenstore.com and noticed that the VH book was once again pushed back, this time to November. It was originally due this month, then pushed to August. Anyone have the specifics? Last time I heard it was to add pages. Thanks!

    Maybe it's to coincide with a fall tour!

    But I doubt it.

    Zloz is still pre-selling autographed copies directly from his site, plus he's offered up this update:



    I know everyone is extremely anxious to receive their copy of my
    forthcoming book "Van Halen, A Visual History" and I wanted to fill
    everyone in on what is happening.
    The book was to be published by VH1 / MTV books but due to a difference
    in our "visions / opinions", I decided that they were not the right
    company to publish my book. This is going to be my very first book and
    I need to have the book done MY WAY so I can be proud of it and I want all the Van Halen fans be totally satisfied with what they get!!!

    So now, the book is being published by Chronicle Books which publishes
    some of the best music books in the world!!! The book will now have
    even more quotes from musicians / industry people and will also have
    more pages than before.

    The bad news is the book won't officially be available to the general
    public until March / April 2008 BUT the good news is that anyone who has bought or buys the book from VH STORE.COM or ZLOZ.COM will be
    receiving their copies in late November / early December 2007 , in time for the Christmas holidays!!! If anyone who has pre ordered it or paid for it and would like cancel their order, that can also be arranged and
    is no problem.

    I KNOW EVERYONE WILL LOVE THE BOOK!!!!
    yeah.......i'm still here.

    Default Update from Jeff

    Got this email yesterday or so:
    Regarding your order for the new coffee table photo book, "Van Halen: A Visual History, 1978-1984" by Neil Zlozower:

    YOUR PRE-ORDER:Some people didn't notice, when they placed their order, that the book isn't even out yet... our website has always clearly stated that we are taking Pre-orders for the book, and that it will be released later this year. (Many people added it to their Shopping Cart without reading the entire description. No problem, though)!

    NEW NOVEMBER RELEASE DATE:The original release date for the book was JUNE 2007. However, the author has switched publishers because he wanted to have more control over the book (And that includes making it 40 more pages than originally planned, and keeping it the same low price). This has pushed the release date of the book back until SPRING 2008. HOWEVER, VanHalenStore.com has made a special deal with the author, and will be getting the book in stock in NOVEMBER 2007, at which time we will charge your credit card & mail the book.

    YOUR "SHIP TO" ADDRESS & CREDIT CARD INFO:Since the book isn't being shipped until November, will you need it sent to a different address than the one you originally gave us? Or does your credit card that you gave us expire before November? If either of these scenarios applies to you, please email us and let us know. (If your address and credit card info will NOT change, you don't have to email us).

    SIGNED COPY:You ordered a signed by the author during our special online promotion. Rest assured, you will still get a signed copy. The later release date doesn't affect that.

    IN NOVEMBER:Please note that we will not charge your credit card until it ships. We'll send you an email at that time that will tell you when to expect it. You will receive it in late November or early December.

    Here is the book description on our website: http://www.vanhalenstore.com/page/VH/PROD/B50
    Thank you for ordering the book, and thank you for your patience!
    Nothing to see here.

    No BS, of course. Long story short, Neil was really being jerked around by the VH1/MTV people, so he simply left them. Because the new publisher is letting Neil have way more control of the book (page count, layout, choice of photos, etc) the book will turn out much better, in my opinion. The only downside is, we all have to WAIT longer. But I guess we VH fans are pretty good at doing that, aren't we?

    I just want to point out that, because the release date is being moved from June to November, some people might need to change their SHIP TO address on their order, or, if their credit card expires before November, they'll have to give me their new expiration date, or a different credit card altogether. So if you've ordered the book, and either of those scenarios applies to you, please email me and I'll update your order.

    One more thing about the book - I notice some people here were speculating that that Neil is publishing the book ONLY because VH is supposed to tour soon. Or some people think that the delay had something to do with the band delaying it. That stuff isn't true. Neil has been very excited to do this book for many years, and when he started putting the book together, there were no plans for VH to tour with Dave. The process of putting this thing together started awhile ago. And the delay has nothing to do with the band. They can't stop a book like this from coming out, nor would they want to. David Lee Roth even helped out by writing the Forward!
