    Just ordered my signed copy from the VH store.

    Getting it signed by the author and arriving in September is a real bonus!

    Can't wait!
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I pre-ordered mine off amazon a few months ago. I'm not too worried about it being signed, etc.
    I'm just interested in the book itself and hope it has some cool never before-seen pics.

    Hey thanks for ordering!

    It's got pictures of Red Ball Jet, Mammoth, pictures of VH practicing in a garage in Altadena -- this is before they started practicing in Roth's basement. VH playing live in 1975 - Ed's got the Ibanez guitar before it was painted white strapped on. Really cool! I think the photos themselves are really going to excite people when the check them out. And a couple of never before published photos by Neil Z. from 1978.

    I ordered mine from B&N.

    Is it being released earlier than October?

    Sometimes we get books weeks earlier, and i'll see them already
    on the shelves.

    I got an email alert from the VH Store yesterday, about the pre-order for a signed copy of this book.
    The insights are wild, and the research is top notch, according to those who've had a sneak peak. No matter what..., this is going to be a must read!

    Greg has probably got himself a very hot seller on his hands.
    I'll second/third/fourth the notion that was brought up, about him being at the helm of a VH video documentary etc.

    This is making us salivate like Cujo!!!
    Can't wait for the book. I'm sure many of us are feeling the same way about it.

    Just a question - Have you given thought to extending your VH research to doing a video style project ala VH : The Early Years dvd?
    Something tells me that yours would be even cooler, Greg.

    VanHalenStore says they'll start shipping orders mid-Sep... so I bet the stores will get stock early too.

    Glad you are pumped! Believe me, I poured my heart and soul into the book and can't wait for everyone to read it.

    I think we'd all love a VH documentary - a really great one like the ones done by the Eagles, for example. But is it worth doing without the involvement of all the band members, past and present? That's the rub. I can't see that happening.

    True. As soon as they are shipped from the printers to retailers they will ship to you guys. All of that is likely to happen around the 3rd week of Sept.

    Thank you!

    I wrote it because I was sick of reading the same stories over and over again. I knew that wild stuff had happened before the band got signed, and so I was determined to get that story down on paper.
