    Default Edward Van Halen by Ross Halfin

    Forgive me if this has been posted elsewhere, and if so please merge accordingly. I got my copy in the mail today after waiting quite a few months, and I have to say it is absolutely worth it for a diehard Ed/VH fan. The book is 365 pages long with countless photos I've never seen. I have every VH book, and though it seems a bit opportunistic with Ed's passing nearly a year ago, this books features photographs from all eras until but not including when Wolfgang joined the band.

    It's like a larger version of the Zlozower books, albeit with less commentary.

    Anybody else pick this up yet? It's not cheap!

    Yep I got mine. Pics are great, but shocked at the reversed ‘EVH’ logo on the cover… oh well.

    Agreed, also noticed a factual error (claiming Little Guitars was on Fair Warning).

    This was an error and I think some people were getting replacements from the publisher.

    I like his VH stories though.

    I was watching an in interview of him once, and they asked him about why VH broke up. This is paraphrased, as he was imitating DLR and Ed.

    "Do you see this pile of cash here, and this pile of cocaine, and all these naked women? Yeah, well fuck you."

    "Do you see this pile of cash here, and this pile of cocaine, and well...fuck you too!"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I was once on the same flight to London as him. I always saw him as more of a Metallica guy while Zloz was VH.

    Yes, I emailed them after I received my copy regarding the reversed logo and they were very accommodating. I received a replacement copy within 10 days. the new copy has better binding as well.

    Lately he’s been a barnacle on Jimmy Page.

    Just got mine last Friday.
    Long time coming and quite expensive to ship to Australia. Close to $200 AU dollars. Shipping something this heavy to Australia was always going to ram me postage-wise.
    Soon as the postman handed it to me, I could feel it moving around inside. Not a good sign.
    After opening it up, it had 4 dings in every corner of the hard cover, plus a deep one down the middle of one side.
    Emailed Rufus and after being asked to provide photos, they had a new one out to me within 2 hours, free of charge. Great customer service.
    I did notice though, the binding looks really weak. This is gonna be one of those read it once and never open it again books because I can just see it falling apart.
