    This book was supposed to come out years ago, but was shelved.
    The article links to a German version of the book, anyone have an idea of an English version? Jeff?
    I pre-ordered it about a decade ago on Amazon...wonder if that is still valid?? I doubt it.

    The link took me to an English version, so it looks like we'll be able to read it without ze Germans ! Here's the note, which shows it's up to date and happening:

    To mark the one-year anniversary of Eddie Van Halen's early death comes his first full-length biography - a searching, affectionate and in-depth look at the life and legends of this true musical virtuoso.

    Arriving in California as a young boy in the early 1960s, Edward Van Halen and his brother Alex were ripe for the coming musical revolution. The sons of a Dutch, saxophone-playing father, the brothers discovered the Beatles, Cream and others.

    From the moment their hugely influential 1978 debut landed, Van Halen set a high bar for the rock 'n' roll lifestyle, creating an entirely new style of post-'60s hard rock and becoming the quintessential Californian band of the 1980s. But there was also an undercurrent of tragedy to their story, as Eddie's struggles played out in public, from his difficult relationship with the band's original singer, Dave Lee Roth, to substance abuse, divorce and his long-running battle with cancer.
    Does the noise in my head bother you ?

    What about a book by a Dutch writer who would be able to interview his relatives back in Holland in their native language?

    Interviewer: "What was Ed like at 5 years old"?

    Family member: "He was like every other Dutch kid at the time. 5 years old".

    Judging by the Classic Rock blurb, it may have some deeper insights. Be curious when more info is released.
