    when do books like this usually start leaking a few tidbits to get the public foaming at the mouth? I never really paid attention to that

    Typically these start within a month, so late September most likely.

    Unless he is having Dave promote the book, in which case they will try to pretend it's no longer happening until release day.

I've heard the first hour and a half of it and there's some stuff I'd never heard before, especially around coming to America, their father's music, early bands etc.

    Hes done an interview with Adam Roach about releasing it here:

    I will be looking forward to this for sure!

    Dude, you already know the answer.

    95% of the bashing will be about Sam. Heís not gonna say that much negative about Dave. Iíll give that one 5%. And I doubt he really says much about Mike.

    He wants to get even with Sam so heíll finally get to do it.

    Again, I have no interest in this part of the book. Itís annoying that itís gonna be in there, but it is what it is.

    The book is called "Brothers". I doubt Roth, Hagar or Mike are even mentioned.
    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

    Pretty sure itíd be hard to write a book and not have some passing mention of the band members at some point. Especially when the blurb talks about talking about musical politics bullshit. So itíll be mentioned.

    But maybe not. Which would be nice.

    Actually itíd be the biggest slap not to mention him at all.

    George Harrison didnít mention John Lennon once in his book. And it really pissed him off.

    Iím sure he regretted it in late 1980 but revisionist history and all.

    I hear that. I bet Alex talks very little about Dave and Sammy, if at all. Iím hoping this book is about him and Eddie without all of the bullshit drama involving both former singers.

    That's actually not true. Lennon was mentioned several times in the book, just not the way he wished he had been. The other Beatles weren't mentioned much, either. But Lennon whined about it, for whatever reason.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    2 ways it can go: He'll either take the high road, and mention them but only factual stuff and a few anecdotes "because they were there"....or he totally unloads on them.

    My guess is the former.

    I'm curious to how many inaccuracies there will be. The VH brothers and the truth have had a very loose relationship over the decades.
