finished reading my copy last night!!! loved it and spent over 3 hours on the phone with Andrew. What a cool dude with some amazing stories and awesome pics.

I would highly recommend this book to any Van Halen / Ed guitar nut.

Just had a first quick read through the book and I must say that Ed’s passion for guns (and the use of them) is somewhat frightening…To me the photos do not really make a statement but some of the stories are quite entertaining.

Go my copy this morning. Just sorta skimmed through it for now. I heard the Limp Bizkit story years ago, but it was told totally different and basically made it look like Eddie was in a drugged out rage. Glad to know that wasn’t the real story. I also noticed Andrew was there through the transition from “samurai Ed” to “clean cut Ed”. Looking forward to getting into the book tonight.

Just read the whole book. If you’re an Eddie fan, stop at page 218. Fuck.

It’s a common theme throughout the book, I guess, but Eddie’s paranoia comes out against the author. This is the most REAL written work about what has been happening with Eddie (since probably 1995/1998 era) that I have ever read. Sammy spoke about it and Gary alluded to it, but, never mentioned anything specifically. All of the stories that have been told about Ed and Al fighting, Eddie’s resentment towards Sam, Mike and Dave, his two personalities (Ed vs. Edward Van Halen), it’s all kinda laid out in this book. It’s a small window of time, but if this all happened in this brief period, just image what went on when the band was still together, writing, recording and touring. I highly recommend this book. It’s short, but FULL of stories and insight into Eddie the person. Andrew never trashes anyone and totally takes neutral ground. He doesn’t damage anyone. It’s just the stories as they happened. The crazy world of rock and roll. The end is just sad and disappointing.

So, now as I continue working my way through the book, I find myself staring at the page numbers. Thanks Voo.

This morning, I made it to page 218, and stopped. Now I don’t know if I wanna continue…..

Just finished the book the other day..
Awesome photos of things at 5150..
The stories are a interesting read, yes some of the Ed stories are a bit out there but we knew from Sammy & Vals book Ed was not in a good place from 04-06…

A must have for any VH fan…

I’m keen for Book number 2..,,
