    Default Van Halen book "Could This Be Magic: Van Halen before 1978"

    Anyone knows about this book? Apparently VH rehearsed in her garage and the took pictures. I've never seen the cover picture before, with Mark Stone on bass.

    Online reviews are not very good

    .

    It's a great book for the pictures. Very cool pics. At the time were rare to see. The author Elizibeth Wiley is a super cool chick VH thanked her on VH first album. She donated the proceeds to her worthy cause. It is great she put the book out so us fans could see those pictures. Dynamite stuff.

    Fuck the reviews. It's not technically advertised as a book the photography is worth every cent & theres more she found afterwards

    Actually some really funny, total gems of early stories. She knew them when they were so young. She’s cool and has wise insightful points of view. Very honest, amazing she was there at the beginning. She was a single mom who bought a repo house that was trashed by bikers and the band helped her fix it up and they sound proofed the garage and rehearsed a lot and even thanked her on VHI. She is a smart woman. And she loved Dave’s Dad, Dr. Roth. Worth every penny!!!! Many of the stories would be great to add with some stories from Van Halen Rising for their bio movie. And what they left us fans - it was magic.
