Product Description

About the Author

Lucas Aykroyd is a Master's student in English at the University of Victoria in Canada. In 1996, he graduated with a First-Class English Honors B.A. from UVic. His music reviews, articles and creative writing have appeared in journals across North America. Among other projects, he is completing a suspense novel entitled The Mahdi of Zimbabwe. He composed and recorded the official song of the UVic Student Alumni Association, "We Are UVic Now." His hobbies include endurance sports--he has walked a treadmill for 24 hours nonstop and run 62 miles in one day--as well as reading, singing, working with computers, and following Van Halen. His personal Van Halen highlights include seeing the band live at B.C. Place Stadium in Vancouver in 1991 and translating "Jump" into French for a class assignment in 1995.

If you're a =VH= fan, you should have already known over 90 percents of the facts/trivia in this book. Dave's nickname? Eddie's married to whom? Producer's name? The author also made dozens of useless questions & answers from each of Van Halen CD inserts. If you really want to know more about Van Halen, buy The Van Halen Encyclopedia (C. J. Chilvers) and Crazy From the Heat (David Lee Roth). Dave's book (highly recommended!) is out of print, but you'll definitely find one from auction/Amazon marketplace seller.

If you're obsessed, you'll love it May 5 1999
By A Customer - Published on
This book would make a perfect gift for the Van Halen-obsessed. It contains a mind-boggling amount of research, and if you care about little details like what the Edge, U2's guitarist, said about the US presidency in relation to Van Halen, or how much guacomoli was made available backstage after a VH concert, this is the book for you. It's certainly more thorough than most trivia books. Even major VH fans will find that the book stops just short of telling them more than they ever wanted to know. If you add it to your VH collection, you'll probably find that it's the single greatest source of facts on VH out there.

.. and this group was still fun and interesting to read about; I think fans and even 'non-fans' would enjoy it. I have my own and ordered this one as a gift. It came shrink-wrapped and in a sturdy box so there was no chance of damage. Best of all, it came quicker than I thought it would! :)

Still haven't received the shipment. Ordered it originally for a Christmas present but it wasn't able to be shipped in time. Very disappointed.
