    I bet he does one or two magazine interviews, probably Modern Drummer, and that's it.

    If this book is truly what he says it is going to be then he needs to go to some real good interviewers.

    I agree, but this is Alex we're talking about. He's super private and rarely promotes anything. I'm still shocked that he wrote this book.

    Despite him being such a private person, it's not like Al's never done interviews before. He'd be wise to promote the book. It'll be interesting to see how he does that.

    I have a hard time believing Harper Collins would sign him to a book contract that doesn't contractually obligate him to promote it. He'll do some interviews, albeit heavily curated ones.
    "There will always be a Holyfield or a Tyson, but there's only one Mohammad Ali. There will always be a new body building champion, but there's only one Arnold. And there's only one David Lee. I'm the fun in Van Halen, always will be." - David Lee Roth

    So who would rather see Alex promoting his upcoming book than Mama Val and Uncle Pat's droolfest over the Hairy Mammoth?

    It will be softball questions, such as: "you wrote that you started on guitar and Ed on drums, then you switched, tell us more about that".
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    Oh color me intrigued if a question like that will be asked.......Seriously I would much prefer Alex to be interviewed by a peer of some sorts. Kind of like Eddie being interviewed by Billy Corgan. Maybe Portney. Bissonnette which would be cool since they can talk about how he had to copy Alex. I could handle even Dave Grohl if it was more on drumming.

    Good to know that Eddie Trunk likely won't be in the same area code of any interview.

    I really think any promotion will mimic the VH's stellar record of promotion. Pretty much nothing

    We certainly don’t want a ball washing interview but that’s probably what we’ll get.

    As the story goes, they were all high on weed when they shot that.

    i’m sure they were — just like i’m sure Al snuck back in the trailer and took a few extras hits when no one was looking….

    Speaking of the Hot For Teacher vid, I like the Little Mike's reaction as he gets a killer view of the teacher's booty as they stand right behind her. Sex education at it's finest!

    Same goes with the final part from the LWAN video.
