    Default Eddie Van Halen biography-Eruption-due in 2015

    Faber & Faber Acquires Biography Of Eddie Van Halen

    Posted at 7:47PM Monday 07 Oct 2013

    Faber & Faber has acquired a biography of Eddie Van Halen, Eruption, by Paul Brannigan, author of the Sunday Times bestselling biography of Dave Grohl, This is a Call, and co-author of the forthcoming two-volume biography of Metallica, Birth School Metallica Death.
    Scheduled for publication in 2015, the book promises to explore how it was the incendiary playing of the young guitarist which launched the band Van Halen into the consciousness of America in early 1978, and transformed the musical landscape. Offering the first real examination of a true musical icon, it will also turn up the volume on a life lived in popular music's fast lane.

    Angus Cargill, Senior Editor, bought UK + Commonwealth rights, plus Canada, from Matthew Hamilton at Aitken Alexander. Eruption will be published by Da Capo in the U.S.

    For further information, please contact Anna Pallai, Publicity Director Non-Fiction, on 020 7927 3884 or at annap@faber.co.uk

    I'm feeling generous today and will say authorized. Ed will send all of his guitar magazine interviews over to the publisher and that will be the extent of his involvement. He doesn't like to get persona, you see.

    Possibly.

    I guess it's all dependant on her visiting hours.

    If it is "official", it will be a shit sandwich... sober or drunk, Ed is not known for telling the truth... the less he's involved, the better...

    Could be an interesting read, could be a yawn fest.

    There is enough crap on this very site to write an autobiography of Ed, but if it is official, and Ed actually talks about what went down in 1985, 1986, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2004, etc., I mean actually went down and is honest about it, then it could be great.

    That probably won't happen, I am going to bet unauthorized.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his
