The first definitive biography of the ultimate American rock band

How did a pair of little Dutch boys trained in classical music grow up to become the nucleus of the most popular heavy metal band of all time? What's the secret behind Eddie Van Halen's incredible fast and furious guitar solos? What makes David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar so wacky? And, are all those stories about groupies, booze bashes, and contract riders true? The naked truth is laid bare in Everybody Wants Some--the real-life story of a rock 'n' roll fantasy come true.

Autorentext
Ian Christe is the author of Sound of the Beast: The Complete Headbanging History of Heavy Metal. He has written for Reuters, Revolver, Spin, Guitar World, Wired, and others. He is a regular host on the Sirius Hard Attack and Buzzsaw channels and appears often on television wearing black T-shirts.

Klappentext
"Good band, even better book . . . Essential reading."
Record Collector

How did a pair of little Dutch boys trained in classical music grow up to be the nucleus of America's greatest hard rock band? What's the secret of Eddie Van Halen's guitar mastery? Who besides David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar has DNA strange enough to be a Van Halen singer? Are the legends of groupies, midgets, and contract riders all to be believed? The naked truth is playfully laid bare in Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga—now expanded and updated with reporting on the recent comeback tour.

One of 2007's Most Intriguing Books
LA Weekly

"Highly recommended for Van Halen completists."
Chuck Klosterman, Esquire

"Respect is due to author Ian Christe. His book is perfectly pitched, capturing both the flamboyant excitement and inherent absurdity of the rampant ego collective known as Van Halen."
Geoff Barton, Classic Rock

"Written in jubilant, elastic prose, Ian Christe's Everybody Wants Some is a sort of Day-Glo fairy tale . . . savvy, sympathetic, expert, funny ha-ha."
The Boston Phoenix

"[Christe's] not fooling around. And his prose is always playful."
Los Angeles Times

"A new biography of the band that made metal marketable doesn't disappoint the fans."
The American Prospect

"Christe chronicles the sweeping scope of the Van Halen saga."
Chicago Sun-Times
