Shit, I think I pre-ordered this. It’s been a long time now. I’m broke and unemployed now, so I hope I secured a copy! LOL BTW, if anyone needs a B/W or B/Y EVH guitar, let me know. Buyers market! ;)

ron: I hope that Steve will be contacting all of the pre-order customers, and updating his page(s) with the new estimated arrival date. I’m looking forward to the book.


I never got anything from Mr. Rosen with an update. The last update I heard was that the book is due in June. Now that we’re past June, I dunno what’s going on. (besides the posts from you guys here)

Of course I’m still waiting on my EVH Funko that was ordered in early December, so I guess I’ll just have to be more patient.

September was the last date I heard.

That’s because when I bought my 5 they were the last ones in stock! :-D

I spoke with Steve the other day and he said it got pushed back again due to a paper shortage and other stuff. He said it will be after August now just so folks are aware.

I’m more interested in Zloz’s new book about Ed to be honest :) That looks like a killer one that should be coming soon I hope too.

August 24 update:
the book is close and I’m hoping 6-8 weeks at the outside. The second I have the books in my hands, I will begin mailing them out chronologically from the time I received the order.

Mine came today. It could have been packaged better. Sad to see the corners bent.
Also, no “special goodie” included.
(sigh)
I look forward to reading it though.

I wish my quote link worked. Damn you, Higgins!! ;)

I’m honestly very happy with this release. It’s a very rare literal story. It’s a chronological story. it’s a life story. It’s not just pics and the main pics are from Zloz. I’m about 40pages in and I love it so far. I haven’t had a lot of time to dive in yet, but when I do, I’m going head first

Mine arrived today. Hardcover. 580 pages. Raised lettering. I got 3 pages into the Introduction and I can already tell this was money well-spent, not to mention worth the wait.

I also received a photo bookmark, business card, and 2 postcard-sized photos of the book with Rosen’s autograph on the back of one of them.
