    Itís Alex taking control of his familyís image. It wonít be a dirt book. It probably will tell stories of growing up as a Van Halen and what the ride was like.

    Most likely. Check out that interview I posted if you havenít. The one guy, Chris Gill said of Harper Collins that they usually like the dirt. Iím inclined to believe there will be at least a few chunks of mud.

    Also from the DLR Podcast they speculate the timing of Dave suddenly bringing out videos attacking AVH and Wolfgang coincides with the time that the book would have been completed and sent to the publisher. Did Dave read it?

    After all these years is that coincidental?

    Howard Stern mentioned the AVH book the other day and said "hey Alex, if you happen to be listening, I'd like to interview you." Bababooey says they're working on it.

    Stern has been such a Hagar shill the last two months, if there's anything in the book that goes after Sammy I can see this interview not happening.

    Well, under traditional circumstances, I'd sift through a copy at my local Borders or Barnes & Noble first and then see if I wanted to actually buy a copy. I've done that more and more over the last couple decades with a bunch of different rock bio books. Mostly because the market has been flooded with rock bio books, especially in the last decade as these various aging 80's rockers get older and wheezier. It's actually saved me more than a few bucks because I can usually tell with a quick perusing if the book is gonna be worth my time and money.

    I get the felling the Alex book is gonna have some previously unseen photos, but I'm more interested in the text. I mean, for all the lackluster stuff in Hagar's book at least he had a warts-and-all chapter on the 2003-2004 reunion. Should all have a few good chapters along those lines...I mean, Dave's autobio was all over the place but he had some good tales to tell. If Al has some good tales to tell, I'll pony up. If he's just fluffing Eddie's legacy and has nothing to offer other than rare pix, I don't need to spend $40 for that.

    Of course. Dirt sells. If Alex is going to throttle anyone it will be Sammy Hagar for talking shit about Eddie when he was down.

    Has he changed that much I haven't heard him in years? Old Howard would have gone straight to the dirt and conflict.

    Almost feel like this could get taken down, as it comes off like a total spoiler for the book, but needless to say, pretty fascinating to hear a pretty crisp interview from 39 years ago. Itís too bad Rosen never got to speak with the parents. Ed had shut down the book he was working on before it ever happened.
