    Default new book "Eruption in the Canyon" inside the 5150

    Brett removed link.

    ATTENTION DAVE & DAVE UNCHAINED LISTENERS!

    Below is a direct message from Andrew Bennett, author of the upcoming Van Halen coffee table book “Eruption in the Canyon,” who is featured in our latest episode:

    Happy New Year VH fans!

    I wanted to reach out and thank you for your interest in my new book, “Eruption in the Canyon” featuring 215 pages of stories and photos from my time spent living and working at 5150 Studios with the one and only Edward Van Halen.

    The book is coming out at the end of this month. Since doing the interview with Dave & Dave, there has been a distribution delay because of the holiday season. However, I wanted to update you directly about what’s happening with the book.

    The Amazon account is taking longer than expected to set up so we are going with a new vendor in order to expedite the process.

    Here’s how it is going to work: I am NOT doing pre-orders. Once I get the books in hand from the printer, I will post up a link and these hardcover coffee table books will actively be FOR SALE at $50 a piece.

    As a gesture of gratitude and respect to everyone, the books will be shipped FREE OVERNIGHT via FedEx.

    Once an order is placed, you will receive a confirmation email back within 30 minutes, which will include your tracking number and receipt.

    I am genuinely grateful for your support and I am excited for everyone to absorb this material which proves the amazing legend that Eddie is.

    Sincerely,
    Andrew Bennett

    Uh, you're missing the fact that the guy who owns the place where said photos were taken doesn't want them released for public consumption.

    Maybe he's had a change of heart since the thumb drives, but if he hasn't I want no part of this as in respect hir right to privacy.

    FYI: I've been told that the book is 100% NOT authorized and is illegal.

    It is not and is yet another way this cockroach is profiteering off trust granted to him and others low points on their lives. Why anyone would support it or promote that is a moral code.i do not relate to but to each their own.

    I've seen the signed confidentiality agreement, and other documents, earlier in this thread,
    and I know those where some of the darkest moments in Mr. Van Halen's life.
    I have to ask...where is this guys integrity?

    Disgusting!

    Lacking.

    I get it, the guy wants a return on his investment.

    However, some things are bigger than the almighty dollar. Ed was a wreck then. If he doesn't want it out then respect that.

    Be satisfied that you were granted access to a shrine that most of us would pay good money to enter for even a day and move on. Keep the pictures and anything else in a personal collection knowing that very few have had the access you were granted.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    He was hired to do a job and at the end was told, "Bye. Here's a cheque...take it or leave it."

    He's not approaching this like a fan would, where we would just go hang there for free and take pictures for ourselves. He was hired to do a job for money and it turned out he got the short end of the stick when it came to payment. Didn't he have to go to court to try to get a settlement or something?

    Also, maybe if the band just released shit like this like every other band on the planet, fans wouldn't have to depend on guys like Andrew releasing unauthorized bootleg videos and pictures to satisfy a demand that is quite obviously there. I'm not saying they have to or they need to. I'll survive without have to hear Eddie playing and being as shit as he was in 2004, but hot damn would it not be interesting to see a fly on the wall perspective from those sessions? Its definitely interesting to me.

    With respect to this book, it appears as though it's a book of guitars and shots of the studio. Not Ed drinking Loon and making lemonade in his eyes.

    Bring on the axes.

    you bring up some good points MF. I dont think any of us are interested in penetrating into the dark years of Ed back then or seeing him at his low drinking points. Hell I remember seeing him back in 04 up front in the Golden ring and being 3 feet away from my hero and thinking damn I feel bad for him. He was and still is my hero.
    I think what most of us would love to see including me (as much of a EVH guitar collector, player fanatic as I am) is the amps, guitars and studio pics. I can only hope the pics that would be released are gear oriented not personal oriented. I certainly understand the feelings on both sides of this equation as far as WE as fans are discussing in this thread I guess I am just a total gear fan and love the guitars and would love an opportunity to see some of the rare gems up close again like the Steinberger, EBMM, Kramer 1984 etc. Who knows though maybe there arent even any pics of those. Guess we'll see how this whole thing shakes out in the end.
