    Default Free Download of Chapter 1 of the new VH Book!

    There is a brand new hardcover book about the entire history of Van Halen, titled "Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga", by Ian Christe.

    Today, on the official release date of the book, the publisher has graciously made the entire first chapter available to us for free download, just to wet our appetite!

    I can sense that there is a lot of skepticism about the book... a lot of big fans are saying "how could this author possibly know more about Van Halen than we already know?" Even as the publisher of "The Inside" Van Halen magazine, I came across lots of things in the book that I never knew. It is extremely well written and very informative. I will go on record and say that this book is very enjoyable to read and will definitely satisfy any die-hard, or new, Van Halen fans.

    I personally guarantee that everyone will love it. (And by "guarantee," I mean that Van Halen Store will gladly buy back the book from anyone that doesn't like it.)

    Click here to download the free chapter, or to purchase the book.

    This book must have been somehow "approved" by the powers that be: only Ed and Al are on the cover. Dave (& Mike) get the back cover of the book.

    I want a book sourcing Templeman and Landee, the only other guys who were there when all the masterpieces were created. Wonder if this book has that.

    Throw in Marshall Berle, Pete Angelus and Noel Monk, and you've got some solid sources right there.

    Just finished it..........DAMN GOOD READ !!!

    Lots of shit I didn't know ! I just kept thinking of what a great movie the entire story would make !

    Lots of quotes from interviews from over the years, some I had never read, but the author doesn't use it as a crutch or filler, just to enhance the story !


    I highly recommend it to all levels of VH fandom....for what that's worth .


    MUCH better than anything I've read about VH, especially that Van Halen 101 waste of paper!
