Van Halen's rise in the 1980s was one of the most thrilling the music world had ever seen - their mythos an epic party, a sweaty, sexy, never-ending rock extravaganza. During this unparalleled run of success, debauchery, and drama, no one was closer to the band than Noel Monk. Throughout Van Halen's meteoric rise and abrupt halt, this confidant, fixer, friend, and promoter saw it all and lived to tell. Now, for the first time, he shares the most outrageous escapades.

A Southern California Backyard Party Band...
Telling the story by a road Manager turned Business Manager of one of America’s greatest party bands as a compilation from a multitude of sources and manages to do so beautifully I think. Despite the almost "cut-and-paste" feeling, the image conveyed feels full and comprehensive. Great value for a classic Van Halen fan!
