    I'm so bummed. I have all the pre-1998 copies except for the two "FUCK" era ones ("Van Halen Returns" and "Van Halen Live"). I used to carry those around like appendages, so they probably got shredded and tossed out.

    The stories inside were really well done. GW used to be great.

    I do. In 98 I found it at a used bookstore. Got an old one with Satch, too.

    And I am not even a guitar player, just VH nerd!

    It was discussed in this thread: http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/awfu...ic-t49830.html

    It's a GW photoshop. They used the following photos from photographer Ross Haflin:

    Background: http://www.rosshalfin.com/van_halen/...-colour61.html

    Face: http://www.rosshalfin.com/van_halen/...-colour82.html

    Animation combining the two photos with cover:

    Why not just use the first photo? It looks 10x better

    I agree! Seems like they could've used any number of shots over that photoshoped cover:

    http://www.rosshalfin.com/van_halen/van_halen05.php

    Maybe the pic of the guitar was more important for the cover and story?
