New Van Halen Tell-All Due This August

Ian Christe

In fact, I'm finishing up the index and putting this baby to bed today. The book isn't as sleazy as it looks or sounds, I promise. The level of some of the "tell-all" is just that Michael Anthony's dad played with the guy who wrote "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition." Shocker! And for shame -- Eddie didn't have the proper building permit for 5150 for almost 10 years, tsk tsk! Sure, there are a lot of sordid details, sexcapades, and countless cans of Schlitz Malt Liquor, but the emphasis is on the energy, creativity, and struggle of Van Halen over 3 or 4 decades. I feel like I just finished a massive jigsaw puzzle, and I can't wait for people to read this epic story.

Beast wishes!




Really looking forward to it, Ian!
