    it was nice to have his story written and it was a nice easy read but the number of flat out lies in that book really took away from it. It also made the whole band look awful. Dave's book, on the other hand, didn't have that issue for me as I had no fucking clue what he was talking about 95% of the time. It's took bad the brothers didn't write a book but the BS factor on that might have gone to 11.

    It is a good interview and a fantastic magazine dedicated to the greatest hard rock drummer ever. Not surprisingly, even though the interview was conducted in August, he didn't give any indication of how ill Edward must have been by then.

    That wasn’t my take at all. Liked the book very much and didn’t come away thinking worse of anyone. VH is clearly the biggest achievement in his career and that came through clear in the book. He also has one of the best insights into Ed’s genius, which I thought came through nicely. Easy read and fascinating life he’s led. To each their own!

    So it's a better interview than the quotes in that link? Because from the quotes it sounds like more of the "grumpy old men" vibe that they've been in for a good long while now. I'm actually surprised that AVH okayed they interview coming out now versus telling them he'll do another interview in a few months that will reflect the current situation better.

    That was your take on it? That's just focusing on a few pages versus the vast majority of the book, which is ultra positive. First it's not about VH, it's about how some guy who grew up very poor was able to achieve immense success in various fields through hard work. The VH part has lots of positive, and just a few pages which talks about the infighting. The book didn't use a fact checker, so it's not gonna accurate record sales info, but that wasn't a problem for me, I know the numbers already, as well all do here. It's a great book.

    Read it for yourself. But I doubt you'll like it because it's not the type of insecure self promoting self-serving BS that your boy Sam excels at.

    Donno why I wouldnt like it. I've met Big Al and had a good convo with him. I like the guy. I prefer to know the context around these quotes first before passing any kind of judgement.
