    Thumbs up VAN HALEN RISING LIVE CHAT -- Sept. 30 with author GREG RENOFF!

    Good morning, Linkers. I have some very exciting news!

    Many of you are no doubt anticipating the upcoming release of Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal, which will drop on both traditional and digital platforms later this month. I am very excited to announce the book's author, Greg Renoff (@GregRenoff), will join us here at VHLinks.com for a LIVE THREAD CHAT about Van Halen Rising on Wednesday, September 30 at 8 p.m. central time. Greg, himself a long-time VHLinks.com member (ffoner), will chat live in a designated thread with other Linkers and answer questions about the book and his research into the greatest American rock band of all time.

    Also, a limited number of signed copies of Van Halen Rising will be given away to registered VHLinks.com members during the live thread experience!

    The 372-page Van Halen Rising is scheduled to ship from online retailers, including VanHalenStore.com, around September 18. So, get your pre-orders in now! The volume includes more than 30 never-before-published photos dating back to the days of Mammoth and Red Ball Jet, all from the mid- to-late 1970s, and draws from more than 230 original interviews, including with former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and producer Ted Templeman!

    For existing members, we are encouraging you to help promote this unique event. As you are all very well aware, the website is currently fundraising for another year, and we can certainly use all the support we can get before October 2. So head on over to Facebook, Twitter or whatever your social media channel of preference is these days, and share the news of this very cool experience. Let everyone know of the date/time, and feel free to include the link to this thread in your posts.

    Get to work, Linkers. See you and Greg on the 30th!

    How cool is this shit!?

    Scotty, can you explain more on how the free signed copy giveaway will work? Do we absolutely have to be online at the time? I'm planning on it, but if life gets in the way...

    Very cool.

    Bass player in my band said he wanted to borrow my copy after I finish...I told him to buy his own! ...In a good natured "Support the author" kind of way.

    So maybe I should wait on buying my copy in case I win one. If I don't I'll definitely buy it right after. I'm excited!

    We're ironing out those details. I can tell you for sure that to be eligible for the giveaway, you'll need to participate in the live thread. So, if you're here and submitting questions for Greg, you'll have as good a chance as everyone else doing the same.

    Should be fun & informative!
    I'm working nights this week, so I hope somebody asks about what Mike had to say (if anything) about the current state of VH...

    Should people post/queue up some questions here beforehand to get a smooth start? Or wait for a new thread on Wed?

    Here's one:

    A poster on another forum mentioned having seen footage of VH at one of the infamous backyard parties, although it was video only, no audio. Same person mentioned that a pro-shot video of the 1984 tour was supposedly close to being made public, by a private owner/bootleg.

    In any of Greg's dealings with fans/insiders/former bandmates/etc., did any mention of this rare footage (video) ever come up?
    Also, has he got any inclinations that this and/or other never before seen VH video footage is in the works for release?
