Eddie Van Halen Book Will Cover 50 Hours Of ‘Intimate And Wide-Ranging Talks’

As the first anniversary of the death of Eddie Van Halen approaches, a new book called Eruption: Conversations with Eddie Van Halen is set to come out next month.

The book is written by Brad Tolinksi, former Editor-in-Chief of Guitar World magazine, and Chris Gill, former Editor-In-Chief of Guitar Aficionado magazine.

It’s based on more than 50 hours of conversations the pair had with EVH and also includes interviews with family, friends, and other musicians.

It examines everything from Eddie’s early struggles as a young Dutch immigrant unable to speak English to his relationships with bandmates David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar.

The book is scheduled to be published on October 5.

Do you think this is going to be a “must-read” book?
