    I emailed Martin about this last week, and he messaged right back explaining the
    book will be available in about six weeks.
    His web guy accidentally rushed the release on his page, but you can pre-order.

    I'm a huge fan of Martin and have many, many books by him from over the years.
    His writing is so readable & he interviews and researches everyone.
    His book on Ted Nugent blew my mind, because he got everyone who was involved
    in Ted's career (Charlie Huhn, Cliff Davies, Derek St. Homes), plus Ted himself, to
    really go deep and give their own perspectives on what took place.

    His recent book on Accept was also great, also The Birth of Thrash, where he get's
    everyone from every band, to weigh in on what was happening.

    He traces a time line, and then takes you through everything year by year.

    And the new Sabotage! Sabbath biography, is just phenomenal stuff.

    Martin is from Canada and used to write for Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles.
    He writes for many magazines, even Vintage Guitar.
    And he's interviewed pretty much everyone from every facet of Hard Rock/Metal.

    I've emailed him several times since Winter, and the guy writes back almost instantly.
    He's mailed me many books from Canada, and he ships fast!

    He's also friends with Metal Historian Sam Dunn, and he's frequently reviewing albums on
    Sam's metal youtube channel.

    He just get's it.

    He understands those special albums, others over look: Stained Class, Sabotage, WACF, Powerage, etc.

    He often dissects albums track by track, and it's so enjoyable.

    I was like Martin, I NEED THIS BOOK!
    I will add a link to it on the VH page!

    He responded, Hang on, we jumped the gun a bit with the orders...
    We are looking at pre-Christmas shipping time, save that link until we have them
    ready & i'll let you know.

    I keep looking at it.

    I NEED THIS BOOK!

    Cool that it covers all eras, and although I don't care for the title of the book (Unleashed! might've been more appropriate?), I might grab this eventually.

    Looks like a great read. And one that will give props to every member of the band, since VH is a lot more than just Ed, and always has been. Look forward to what he has to say about all of Alex's amazing custom monster tour kits over the years.

    Awesome. I'll definitely be grabbing a copy. I'll wait until the official release date before I order though...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Yep, I've got all his Rush ones and a few others, he's generally pretty good and entertaining. The only mild criticism I have is that he's sometimes a bit one-dimensional. Sometimes he's a little too much "If it's not metal it's crap!" Lol!

    But he's good, and he's definitely knowledgeable.

    Yes!

    I meant to mention the Alex factor.
    Martin really GETS Alex, especially when you read his older reviews on those early VH records.
    Alex is a huge part of VH for Martin.

    But he lays out his books in a fun way, where it's not just "copy & paste"/
    So they arrived with 50.00 and a piano, kinda deal.

    He relates his own High School experiences to the music, the shows he
    witnessed as a kid in Canada.
    He's like a less arrogant Chuck Klosterman.
