The information about Eddie Van Halen was good and interesting but the writing was sub-par. The author interjected a lot of his own opinions regarding various events in Eddie's life as well as past members of the band, which in my opinion is out of place in a truly good biography. Also the grammar was often poor and led me to wonder on several occasions if anyone had even edited the book at all.

Very well done bio. Author has good perspective of Van Halen's life. Only complaint may be the redundant criticism of Sammy Hagar. It's not that I do not agree with many of the points, it is just they get repetitive.
Great book on one of the most important musicians of the last 30 years. Well done.
