I was checking out the photos of the Camden, NJ show at VHND & there’s a dude

wearing a shirt with the cover of the book on it.

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

On 10/9, I’m launching Van Halen Rising at Vroman’s Books in Van Halen’s hometown of Pasadena. I’ll be there to meet and greet folks and sign books.

Oh, and I’ll be joined by a surprise, Grammy-winning guest who will also answer questions from attendees.

GET READY.

I’ll guess some kind of producer or other behind-the-scenes person.

Win ​invitations​ ​to the launch party​ ​for “Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal!”

Enter to win a pair of invitations to the launch party ​ ​for “Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal!” Each ​ winner will also receive a free signed ​copy of the ​book ​ at the party, courtesy of ECW Press.

Before they were famous, Van Halen performed at every small hall and dive bar across the city of Los Angeles. To celebrate that legacy — and the release of Van Halen Rising — ​author Greg Renoff ​and his co-conspirators are throwing a book launch party at T. Boyle’s Tavern in Van Halen’s hometown of Pasadena, California on October 10.

There is a full night of music and fun in the works, including a performance by the fantastic Van Halen tribute band, Fan Halen. That night, they’ll be taking us back to Van Halen’s early days by blasting through the setlist Van Halen performed on their 1978 World Tour.

After Fan Halen finishes, some legendary San Gabriel Valley rock musicians will take the stage until last call, playing tunes that helped make the seventies hard rock’s greatest era.

All the while, author Greg Renoff be around to sign books, shake hands with partygoers​, and to say thanks to the many people who contributed to the making of “Van Halen Rising.” ​

Hey that’s cool. Did I read somewhere you designed the book cover? I’ve never really gotten into the old flyers and stuff, so the cover alone is going to be a treat.

I was planning it anyway, but that just cemented the deal. Your writing of the story is incredible, a true tribute to the band we love.
Copy ordered! Congratulations on what will be a great read.
